July 12 Update

Hey everybody! I have some beautiful things going up in today’s 1pmET shop update….

Update July 12

Top: “Pure Imagination” on Rendezvous Sport (also available on Journey Sock), Middle: “Amalfi At Night” on Rendezvous Sport, Bottom: “Strut Your Stuff” on Journey Sock (also available on Honeymoon Sock)

Top and bottom are brand new colorways available on 2 different bases each, and the middle colorway is a re-release that I haven’t dyed in a long time! All listings are currently available to be viewed in preview mode in the shop, and will be available for purchase at 1pmET.

 

 

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!

June 14 Shop Update- HALLOWEEN!!!

Hey everyone! For once I’m giving y’all lots of time to get a holiday color before the actual holiday, lol! Today’s All-Halloween shop update just went live!

There are two brand new colorways based off of themes from “It’s The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!”, and they are pictured in the middle left and bottom left of the mosaic. Here they are swatched:

The top is “The Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch” and the bottom is “Trouble With The Scissors”.

I also redyed several of my most popular colorways from years past!

You can shop the update right now! Thanks for looking, and I hope you’re having a great week!

June 7 Shop Update

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

 

Here are the beauties that went up in today’s shop update- all are still available as of 10:20pmET!

Left column from top to bottom: “A Good Place” on Twinkle Sock, “Sakura” on Touring DK, “Meyer Lemon” on Luxe Sock. Right column from top to bottom: “Birth of Venus” on Touring DK, “Gracie Pearl” on Luxe Sock.

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

fullsizeoutput_12f1

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!

April 26 Shop Update

Hi everyone!

After a VERY busy few weeks, I’m doing a shop update tomorrow!

I vended the Smoky Mountain Fiber Arts Festival in Townsend TN this past weekend, and created a beautiful new colorway that premiered at the show. Meet “Overhead Sidewalks”:
fullsizeoutput_1171

This colorway was based on a picture of my hometown’s downtown, and its distinctive overhead sidewalks- the only ones in the Western Hemisphere!
fullsizeoutput_10a7

This colorway will be available on Journey Sock, Twinkle Sock, Luxe Sock, and Touring DK in limited quantities. As it is a truly unique yarn, each skein is a little different. Please allow for artistic license!

I am also listing these two beautiful lots of Touring DK:

April 26

Top: In Dreams, Bottom: Earth

I have a few announcements to make as well.

  • I recently finished a wonderful wholesale order for Stitch Supply Company, based out of Altoona WI! I was honored to get to dye a set of 14 colorways based on Tula Pink’s new All Stars fabric collection, and these yarns will be available on the Stitch Supply Company website soon!
  • I am currently working on a “refill” wholesale order for Needlepoint Junction in Hilton Head Island, SC. They have a beautiful exclusive colorway from me that you should really try to go see, if you’re planning to visit the SC coast this year! Michele and her staff are really wonderful people and their shop is so nice!
  • I am scheduled to be a part of the Worldwide Knit In Public Day celebrations at the new Kudzu Cottage shop in Pikeville TN on June 9. I will be bringing a selection of Unwind with me, as well as debuting a brand new custom colorway I am creating for Kudzu Cottage!

 

As always, you can find the shop here, and the update will be live at 1pmET! Thank you for your continued support! 🙂

March 29 Update

Hi friends! I just finished loading today’s 1pmET shop update into the shop, and these beauties are available now for your shopping pleasure…

4F77506D-F929-4EC5-A995-FE9DD0C166D3

Top: “Lake Frances Sunrise” on Touring DK; Bottom: “Sanibel Stoop” on Round Trip Sock, Sock Yarn Minis Set 11, “Family Vacation 1960” on Rendezvous Sport Sock.

As I said in my last post, I’m currently deep in the dyepots, getting ready for Smoky Mountain Fiber Arts Festival… so my updates are likely to be pretty sparse until that’s over (end of April). I am also working on a very large custom order for a new client, so I likely won’t be able to get custom orders done in my normal 2-3 week turnaround; it will likely be 5 weeks minimum until the show is past. Sorry for any disappointment on that score!

That being said, I hope you’ll stop by the shop and see all of the gorgeous ready-to-ship items that I have listed! Thank you for your continued support!
