KnitSpot.com Patterns, Funky Carolina & more

One Planet Yarn and Fiber is finishing up a very busy month.! Hopefully, we will soon be able to fulfill our commitment of donating a portion of our profits to Nonviolent Peace Force. Check out their site, the link is on the side bar. We chose them because they work with numerous groups around the world to support peace making activities of all sorts. The mission of the Nonviolent Peaceforce is to build a trained, international civilian peaceforce committed to third-party nonviolent intervention.We appreciate everyone's support of One Planet!

June Vacation-

Just a pre-announcement that we will be closed completely for a four day break in June. From June 14th-June 17th, we will not be here to answer emails or send out packages. They will all be sent out on Monday the 18th, so it is just a short delay. We will remind people later and also put this on our website.

Patterns from Knitspot.com

We are just finishing up listing all of the patterns from our newest pattern company Knitspot.com. We are thrilled to provide these patterns to all of our customers in download format. Please look at the Knitspot.com section on our web site. Many of Knitspot.com's patterns use variegated yarn and since we have so many handpainted yarns in our shop, we thought these would be perfect. The pattern downloads are so convenient , especially for all of our international customers and for pattern and yarn addicts who like instant gratification!

Check out two of our very favorite patterns, the brand new Morning Glory wrap knit with DK weight handpainted yarn (try using the Sheep Shop 3 merino and silk for this wrap-yummy) and also the Japanese Feather Stole or Scarf in fingering weight (how about Hand Maiden sea silk or Fleece Artist Sea Wool)

Funky Carolina is Here!

We are so excited to introduce Funky Carolina to the customers of One Planet Yarn and Fiber. Carrie is an up and coming new fiber artist with a beautiful eye for color. She hand paints various yarns including sock yarns and luxury merino yarns and bamboo yarns. She also hand paints the most gorgeous spinning rovings! Her handspun is gorgeous and we got goosebumps when we opened the box from her. Her colors are fresh and fun and we know everyone will enjoy Funky Carolina's yarns and fibers!

Make sure to visit Funky Carolina's ETSY shop and her blog to keep up with all of her creations. Here are a few of our favorite new items- delicious handspun, handpainted roving and sock yarn. YUMMY! Funky's yarns and rovings are going fast so grab one you like right away! Her colors are just so beautiful!
