Mid-October Update and Events

Mid-October Newsletter - One Planet Yarn and Fiber
We've had a busy, busy first half of the month here. 

Introducing c2knits, Stonehedge Fiber Mill Sheperd's Wool,  Jacquard Acid Dyes, Earthues Natural Dye kits, Thirteen Mile Lamb and Wool Co.

We've had a busy, busy first half of the month here.  All the patterns that I purchased from c2knits are now up on the website.  I've got a few in mind to do myself.  The Stonehedge Fiber Mill Shepherd's Wool yarns are all up except for 3 more colors needing photos.  These yarns are used by many of the patterns from Noni Designs.

I have also added some totally new concepts to the store.  I now have in stock all 40 colors of Jacquard Acid Dyes.  I use these myself and love the versatility and ease of using them.  The only acid required is regular vinegar.   

For the more environmentally conscience and adventurous of you, I have added in 3 different kits from Earthues Natural Dyes.  I love the color that I can achieve from my Indigo bucket, but I did not enjoy all the beetle parts and sawdust that made it's was into my roving for other natural dye ingredients.  Earthues has taken natural dyes to the next level so that they are as easy to use as acid dyes.  I'm thinking of getting one of the complete color kits for myself.

Of course the dyes do not matter if there is nothing to dye.  To that end I have purchased for sale several pounds of Certified Organic roving form Thirteen Mile Lamb and Wool.  The fibers are incredible and I am sure you will love spinning or felting with them, as is, or using your dye pots.  There is also some non-organic fiber from the same source.  a wonderful white Lomard Targhee. 

What else is new?
There are several more Natural Dye Studio yarns colors in stock.  There are also one or two new patterns.  The yarns are so luscious.  I love the BFL sock yarns. 

Coming Soon!
Noni Designs kits will be available later in the month.  The kits will include the yarn and pattern needed to make some of the Noni Designs felted bags.  Some of the kits will also include the hardware needed to complete the bags.  Philosopher's Wool Fair Isle kits will also be posted later this month.  The clubs for One Planet Yarn and Fiber will be posted with details quite soon.  Please sign up for thee clubs as soon as you can as the spaces will be limited.  The first club will be available next week.  It is the "Motif of the Month Club" for crocheters.  I will be my Lanas Puras Fingering each month for the next 3 months.  Each month will be a  different colorway and no 2 colors will be alike.  The first color is dyed and ready to go.  There is a pattern in the works using this colorway.  Please sign up for the One Planet Yarn and Fiber Blog to receive news more than twice a month.  I post there several times a week.

Your input is needed!

One Planet Yarn and Fiber will soon be introducing several clubs to the shop.  The first one will likely start in the middle of this month.   I would also like to start a fiber of the month club, either hand dyed or ecru roving for you to dye.  After the first of the year, The Natural Dye Studio will be dying yarns exclusively for a One Planet sock of the month club.  For crocheters out there, The Natural Dye Studio will be including us in their 2011 Motif of the Month club.  Please let me know if you are interested in any of these clubs so I can get an idea of the amount of supplies I will need.  Clubs will be 1, 3, 6, 9 or 12 months long.  The longer the club, the more little perks will be included as a member.
