New this week! Patterns! Patterns!

We have quite a few exclusive One Planet Yarn and Fiber patterns releasing soon. Please watch this space and you may see a new pattern every single week!!! It is very exciting, because we have an incredibly talented group of designers working with us!!

A New Yarn Botanika Pattern!

We are proud to be releasing a new pattern Gina House. Gina has published her first patterns at One Planet Yarn and Fiber including the Haiku Flower socks in Black Pearl Yarns cashmere and the Radiance Lace Headband.

This pattern is called the Lovely Waters Tablerunner, and it is simply exquisite! The yarn shown in the pattern is Yarn Botanika hand dyed DK weight superwash merino in the colorway called Blue Moon. This gorgeous table runner was somewhat difficult to photograph because the lace pattern is so beautiful, and the item is long, so it was hard to get a photo that really showed the detail. There are also beads on the end, and you can see these in one of the photos.

Yarn Botanika Radiance DK weight yarn and another would be the Sheep Shop 3 merino and silk yarn. Either of these would be gorgeous in this yarn. A heavier fingering weight yarn could be used, for example the Fleece Artist Sea Wool Sock yarn which is also washable is perfect for this pattern and we are getting more new colors in soon! Also check in the "indie company" section of our site for sport weight/DK weight yarns that might work for this lovely pattern!

Coming Soon

We have many patterns coming soon. We have felted patterns coming including a felted Spa Set and several felted bags in Lanas Puras melosa. We also will be adding beautiful patterns from a company called We have hand dyed yarns, fibers, spinning batts, and knitting bags coming from Madelinetosh and Funky Carolina. Another Yarn Pirate shipment is expected by the end of this week! We have a huge new shipment of Lanas Puras Melosa yarns coming with a many colors of lace, fingering and worsted weight yarns. We also have a new Lanas Puras Yarn coming soon called Lanas Puras Clarissa!! We are very excited about this new yarn! It is being spun exclusively for One Planet Yarn and Fiber in Uruguay. It is 50% cotton and 50% merino wool (the same lovely Lanas Puras merino) in big DK weight skeins. In June, will be adding two new yarn companies (exciting!!) and we should have a new Fleece Artist order here!
