New listing up in the shop. Inspired by my Goosey and Elton John.
I have a few skeins available on sparkle, but custom orders can be placed for any quantity on any of my bases.

About

I make beautiful hand-dyed yarn, finding inspiration in the books and music around me.

It started with a passion for color and wanting ALL OF THE YARNS for myself, so I started hand-dying just for myself. Then a joking conversation around the dinner table with my husband and toddling boy led to a shop name, followed shortly by ideas for colorway names. I dearly hope you love this yarn and my colorways as much as I do.

What is an art blank or a sock blank?
A sock blank is a piece of knitted fabric that is designed to be unraveled and knit from directly. Once the sock blank has been painted, I call them art blanks. (Some people call them sock blankets.)

To knit from a blank, simply unravel the blank from the right end (the wrong end has a lock stitch on the sides and you won’t be unable to unravel) and cast on.

The yarn will have a temporary kink until you block your finished piece and the yarn smooths out.

It is impossible to tell what your finished socks/shawl/hat might look like when knitting from a blank. Watching the art disappear from the blank as you knit and then transform into your knitted item is exciting and a huge part of the fun!

How do you paint your blanks?
I use professional acid dyes on superwash merino wool blends. While it’s always a joy to hear from someone who has been inspired to paint their own sock blanks, I do not disclose my techniques or tools or suppliers as they are unique to my brand.

I am an LYS owner and would like to stock your sock blanks. Do you take wholesale orders?
Please email me at gooseyfibers [!at] gmail.com for any wholesale inquiries.

Will you do trunk shows?
Heck yes!

    This wouldn't be happening if not for my sweet Goosey, giving me inspiration in all that he does.
