Advent Calendar Signups!

fullsizeoutput_2440

I am so excited to offer an advent calendar for 2019. After doing some informal polls via my podcast and Instagram, I have decided that it’s a good time to do so! I am really excited to create something truly special for you guys!

Here is some information you will need to review before signing up:

1. The advent calendar is $150, and will contain (24) 20g miniskeins that are all one base yarn (no mixed bases), plus a few little extras.
2. Shipping to the US will be $18 for flat-rate priority mail. International customers, please contact me BEFORE filling out the form (if you haven’t already) so I can work up a shipping estimate for you.
3. The advent calendar will ship on or by November 15, 2019 (earlier, if international shipping is required).
4. I will let you break the advent calendar up into 3 payments if you need to, or you can pay the full amount up front if that works better for you (payment will be due upon receipt of invoice). Invoices will be sent via Square. Ideally, I would like to have the payments due on July 15, August 15, and September 15. If these dates do not work for you due to your payday each month, I am willing to adjust your due date accordingly, but will need each monthly payment to be paid by the end of each calendar month, and the full amount of the advent calendar will need to be paid by October 1, no exceptions.
5. Optionally, you can choose to add on a full-sized skein to your order for $26. It can be dyer’s choice (will coordinate with the advent calendar), your choice (from my current catalog and must be selected at signups), or you can receive a voucher for a full-sized skein that you can redeem any time between receiving it and March 31, 2020 (it must be one of the colorways from the advent calendar, no exceptions). Shipping for the full sized skein will be free, even if you choose the voucher option.

I plan to leave the signups open until July 14; if I get an enormous response I might close the signups early, but will give notice if I do so, and will remove the link so there won’t be any confusion.

YOU CAN SIGN UP HERE!

Well hello there!

Hi friends!

I hope all of you are doing well! I have taken quite the hiatus from the blog, and that’s largely due to my Color Street business taking off last summer. Balancing both businesses, the retreat, plus family is a lot right now!

At the beginning of this year I decided to step back a little from the routine shop updates for Unwind. I still have my retail storefront, and it still has yarn in it, but due to the dramatic drop in traffic I have decided to focus on custom orders, wholesale orders, and show dyeing. You can still place orders via my unwindyarncompany.com site though- I welcome your business in whatever form it takes!

I just spent some time updating my repeatable colorways list with new colorways I’ve developed over the course of the last year, and I also added quite a few shop swatches to that category as well. I hope you’ll take a look!

Also be on the lookout for something I’m SUPER EXCITED about: I’m doing an Unwind advent calendar this year! Signups will start on 7/1/19, and I’ll be posting the link here on the blog as well as on my Instagram profile and on Ravelry. I’ve done some polling on Instagram and via the podcast, and have decided to do a payment plan to make my advent calendar more accessible to more customers. More info will be available on 7/1/19 when signups start!

Thanks for catching up with me, and I hope you’ll continue to hang out with me via Instagram (@unwindyarncompany)- it is the avenue I use most to communicate info about the yarn business. 🙂

Also going up today, but in my Pampered Nails By Dana Facebook Group, is the Hawaiian Half Light You Nailed It! Kit!

fullsizeoutput_14c8

The idea for these kits was born when I realized just how often I see posts on Instagram by knitters and crocheters, where they are showing that their project matches their nails. With this kit, you can have that happen for up to 14 days! 😉 The Hawaiian Half Light design is brand new for Summer 2018, and when I saw it I knew it needed to be represented in yarn form too!

The price of the kit is $47 including US shipping (please note that these cannot be shipped out of the US, so they are only open to US residents).
In this kit:
(1) set of Color Street nail polish strips in Hawaiian Half Light
(1) skein of Unwind Yarn Company Twinkle Sock Yarn in Hawaiian Half Light (75% superwash merino/20% nylon/5% stellina sparkle, 438yds/100g, hand wash/dry flat)

There are 4 kits available in this round. To have a chance of getting one, you need to be a member of my Facebook group. Click the link above to get to the group, and request to join. I’ll be sure to check the member requests before putting the kit post live at 1pmET so anyone who wants one has a chance. If there is a lot of demand, I am amenable to making more kits too!

Here’s a pic of the nail strips on my own nails, with the yarn:

And of course, a swatch of the yarn:

Thanks so much for your continued support! 🙂

June 28 Shop Update

Hello everyone! As I’ve been listing quite a bit of yarn lately, I decided to do something fun and different today… I’ve listed more fun yarn bowls, and a brand new product for me: spinning project bags!

3 Brand New Yarn Bowls Listed Today!

Brand New Today: Spinning Project Bags!

The project bags are really unique and fun. Whenever I take my spinning wheel or spindle out of the house, I’m always torn on what to do with my fiber. I don’t want to keep crushing it into a plastic bag, and I think my fiber gets a little jealous of all of my pretty knitting project bags! This style of bag was born from the need to have a stylish and practical way to carry spinning fiber. It is lined with satin so your fiber doesn’t get felted or stuck all over the inside of the bag, and has 3 kam snaps as closures across the top so you don’t have to deal with fiber getting stuck in a zipper or fiddle with a drawstring. It even has a handy wrist strap if you want to walk and spin on your spindle simultaneously!

For more information on these beauties, check out the shop! All items are now available for purchase!
