Welcome to Candy Skein, my hand dyed yarns and other assorted goodies store! Today is the day I open up my virtual doors to you, selling many of the hand dyed yarn I've shared on this blog, and more!
Here is where you can find Candy Skein. You can navigate to each link from the main website, but I thought I would share each link individually as well:
Candy Skein website
Candy Skein on Ravelry
Candy Skein on Artfire
I wanted to thank everyone for being so supportive and really giving me the the idea to open an online store due to the great feedback I received on my hand dyed yarns. I'm so excited that I'm finally able to share my company's name (though, if you did a little investigating on my Ravelry page, or even the left sidebar you would have already known), logo (designed by my lovely husband, Kurt) and website. I have worked so hard the past few months to make this a reality.
Right now I have 22 skeins of hand dyed yarn in several weights and colors available in the store. I will have more in the coming weeks, and please, if there is a colorway in a certain color, but not in the weight that you would like, don't hesitate to email (email address on the Candy Skein website) or contact me through Artfire. All colorways can be repeated (yet in different dye lots of course) in any weight yarn listed. I plan to have larger batches of dye lots in the coming months for those of you who like to work on larger projects. I also plan to sell handmade stitch markers and other items soon!
Please remember that the pictures in the shop and on my website, though represent a close color match, will look different in person due to monitor screen settings.
In other big news, Candy Skein will be at Queen Bee Market this Friday and Saturday (Friday, May 6th 4pm-9pm and Saturday, May 7th 9am-4pm) at the Del Mar Hilton, across from the Del Mar Fairgrounds! If you live in the San Diego or southern California area, please come out and see us (and the other 50+ vendors). It is a great opportunity to see and feel the yarn in person, and snatch them up before anyone online does! Due to the craft show, the online shop will be closed Friday and Saturday, May 6-7, but will reopen on Sunday, May 8th. I wanted to thank Sharon (Ami Amour) for being so kind to invite me to share her booths.
If you have any questions, comments or suggestions, please feel free to email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or you can leave a comment here. Thank you!
