Hi friends! Sorry I’m late writing this post… it’s been a crazy busy week!

Also, I probably should have posted about this yesterday when it was the actual day, but Unwind is now 12 years old!

12 years ago yesterday, I opened an Etsy shop with 3 skeins of yarn I’d dyed with Koolaid. Fast forward 12 years, and I’ve shipped upwards of 6000 skeins of yarn and 2000 braids of fiber to the US and 65 other countries, and I now have my own domain (hosted by Big Cartel- for now!). It has been such a blessing to get to do what I love for a living, and I’m so grateful for everyone who has purchased, told your friends about Unwind, supported me at shows/events, listened to the podcast, and just been all around awesome as I’ve been on this journey. I hope to have many more years of beautiful colorways in me (and KNOW I have a lot more left to do in this business!)!

To celebrate, through midnight ET on 6/9, all orders ship for FREE with code UYCis12 entered at checkout. This is good on international orders and custom orders too! Don’t miss your chance to save a little, and pick up some beautiful new skeins for your stash.

I’m sure some of you follow me on Instagram, so I did want to touch on one more thing before I go tonight. This past week I got a distressing email from my fiber supplier, stating that they do not intend to sell quantities of less than 22lb of a single fiber anymore. This puts me out of the fiber business for all intents and purposes, so after my current stock of undyed fiber has been dyed up for my next 2 events, I will no longer carry spinning fiber at Unwind. This is sad for me as I was starting to consider dyeing fiber alongside yarn again, but the decision has been made for me by my (now former) supplier. If you’ve always wanted a sweater quantity of spinning fiber from me, I can still order it before July 15, and I encourage you to get in touch with me sooner rather than later about this if it is something you want. Unfortunately I cannot place an order for less than 1lb of a single fiber even before that, so I can’t do any 4oz quantities as custom orders, sorry. Please let me know ASAP if you want a larger quantity though, and I will get it in before they shut down orders.

I hope you all are having a great start to summer and don’t forget to stop by the shop with the free shipping code I mentioned above! Happy shopping!
