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!

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!

March 8 Shop Update

Today’s shop update is LIVE, and it also happens to be my 35th birthday today, so I have a coupon available for a very limited time!

Use coupon code HAPPYBDAY for 15% off your $30 or more purchase from now through Sunday 3/11 at midnight ET (only good on ready-to-ship items, no custom orders).

•••••

This week’s update is extra special anyway, as I’m debuting 5 brand new colorways, all inspired by fabric designed by renowned fabric designer Anna Maria Horner. 3 of these were previously available at Anna Maria’s flagship store CraftSouth, but are now available directly from Unwind and on different bases! Each of these 5 colorways are available on 2 bases each, but will be available for custom order immediately as well.

Thanks for helping me celebrate, and for treating yourself a bit in the process! You can find the shop here!

December 14 Shop Update- Last One Of 2017!

Hi folks! It’s time for my last shop update of 2017… and I tried very hard to make it special!

Dec14Yarn
Several of these colorways have been in high demand lately, so don’t miss your chance to get one for yourself!

Also debuting today are my brand new yarn bowls!
YarnBowls
Made from durable clothesline and quilt-shop-quality cotton fabric (and one out of durable paracord), the bowls are flexible, lightweight and won’t scratch furniture like ceramic/pottery bowls can. They are also packable and can easily be reshaped with your hands after being stored flat. Due to their size, they are only available for shipping to the US by Priority Mail (sorry international folks!), but any yarn order placed along with a bowl order will all ship in the same box, so you will get your order much faster! Also, any order placed with Priority Shipping by December 19 will arrive before Christmas according to the USPS website. 🙂

As always, I am having an end-of-year sale… and this year the coupon code is MOONROOF and will save you 20% off any purchase in the shop (I’ve disabled custom order listings through the end of the year to give myself time to enjoy the holidays with my family). The code will expire at midnight ET on 12/31, so feel free to use it as many times as you want between now and then!

Thank you all so much for your support in 2017. It allows me to do what I love while still providing for my family, and I appreciate you so much! See you in 2018!

2017 Thanksgiving Weekend SALE and Shop Update!!

IMG_1139

Hi everyone! I just updated the shop with 12 new listings, and I wanted to share some information about my Thanksgiving weekend sale with you!

I’m doing a “Choose Your Own Adventure” sale this year, where you can choose what coupon you want! Now through Monday 11/27 at midnight ET, you can choose from the following options:

Option 1:
To save 20% on any purchase of $30 or more, use coupon code TURKEYSALE at checkout.

Option 2:
To get free shipping on any purchase of $100 or more, use coupon code TURKEYSHIP at checkout.

For international customers, the second option is definitely best, but you have the option of picking either one so you get the deal you want!

The fine print: you can only use one coupon, and both can only be used on coupon-eligible in-stock items. If you forget to enter the coupon at checkout, I can’t refund it after the fact, so be sure you’re entering it in the Coupon Code field before you pay. I will do my best to keep to my 2-3 business day ship time, but if I have a lot of orders it might be next Wednesday-Thursday before I can ship- if this is the case, I will email you.

Thank you for supporting a one-woman business and shopping small this holiday season!

October 5 Update: SINGLE-SKEIN SELLDOWN!!

Hi friends! I’m getting back into the swing of things a bit, and it feels good to be back on a normal schedule!

This week’s update is pretty awesome, and that’s because it’s time for another SINGLE SKEIN SELLDOWN!! All single skeins (aka without a mate) are 20% off with coupon SSS20 until they are all gone!

I came back from Into The Wool with a bunch of orphan skeins, so when you add those in with the orphan skeins already in the shop… there are a LOT to choose from! 25 listings, in fact! Here are the new listings that are going up at 1pmET tomorrow (10/5), and there are even more in the shop that were already listed!

Thanks for checking out my shop, and I hope you see something you want to give a good home to! 🙂 I’ll see you next week for the last shop update of the month!

September 7 Update

Hi folks!

 

Well it looks like this will be the last shop update until after Into The Wool, as my schedule has gotten pretty packed and I don’t want to stretch myself too thin. Luckily there are lots of lovelies already in the shop, plus these beauties going up at 1pmET:

September 7

Top: Bougainvillea on Journey Sock and Passionfruit Sangria on Touring DK; Middle: Peaceful Easy Feeling on Twinkle Sock and Arabian Nights on Rendezvous Sport Sock; Bottom: My Forgotten Favorite on Touring DK and Pop Your Collar on Journey Sock. 

To sweeten the pot a little bit, I’m extending a coupon code to the next 7 orders who use the code FAST20 at checkout. You’ll save 20% off your entire order (excluding custom orders), and this is available from the minute this post goes live until it’s been used 7 times. (you’ll know it’s not available if it says it isn’t valid when you enter it at checkout).

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you see something you love in the shop! Take care, and I’ll see you in a few weeks!

3.17.15 Shop Update and NEW Pattern Release!!

Hi everyone!

I’ve had an extremely busy beginning to this month, so this is the first shop update in a while. I’ve tried to make it really big and awesome for you though, so here is your preview…

Sock and Sportweight Yarns

There are two skeins each of the sock yarns, plus four skeins of the brand new colorway Gulf in sport, which is pictured in the upper right corner.

Fibers

Today I have listed a pair each of every colorway, plus several braids of undyed gray merino and undyed swirl bfl, and a couple of panda spin your own socks kits. My fiber supply is dwindling (as is my ability to prepare fiber for dyeing) so I anticipate only 2-3 more updates will have fiber in them before I’m unable to dye any more to list.

Worsted Weight Sweater Quantities

Worsted Weight Sweater Quantities

I am really excited today, as the incomparable Amy Christoffers has just released her brand new sweater pattern Arborvitae, which is designed especially for my Wanderlust Worsted base.

This gorgeous sweater is an excellent shape to fit a variety of body types, and depending on the amount of ease desired, uses 2-3 skeins of this base. I am listing 9 sweater quantities today (8 colors total) with plans to restock in my 3/31 update. I am still not taking custom orders per se, but if there’s a colorway you absolutely can’t live without, please feel free to email me via the shop and I’ll see if I can get it dyed up for that update. (no reserve listings though, sorry!)

Also, I am the podcast sponsor for my podcast Just One More Row this month, so if you listen to episodes 103 and 104, there is a coupon code available for listeners that can be used on any coupon-eligible item in my shop through midnight ET on 3/31.

As always, thanks so much for your continued support of my shop, and I hope you see something you love in the update today!
