Samples of new yarns

I wanted to take a moment to post all the different yarns I have been purchasing, listing and selling. They are going so fast that I just don't think everyone has had the chance to see them before they sell.

These are examples of the Fiber Art yarns, hand spun and hand dyed yarns. These are a part of the Luxury line of cocoons.

I purchase new yarns every week, and once I get the yarns I photograph them and list them for sale. They are made to order and each one will have a different look. Each yarn has its own characteristics, size, colors, textures, stretch, etc.

I have also started doing the Custom Cocoons...these yarns are examples of the types of yarns you will be sifting through (in any color you want of course), or I will have something hand spun for you.

Some of these are already sold...some are currently for sale in my Etsy store. As soon as I get a spare moment...I plan to put together a new site just for the Boutique...but I am super busy right now,and it is just going to have to wait.

New Custom Cocoons

Tired of waiting for the perfect {cocoon} to pop up? Do you have colors in your creative photographers brain that you want a {cocoon} made out of? Certain textures? A special size?

Now is your chance to order a Completely Custom Cocoon. These are in the league of my OOAK and Limited Edition Cocoons. If price is an issue this is not the product for you. But trust me, this will be all you. First we will find out what you want. I will hunt all of my handspun and hand dyed yarn sources for the perfect yarn for you. If we do not find something that works, then I will have something spun specially for you. Then we will make it just for you out of your custom colors and yarns.

This is not a quick process. If we can find a yarn ready to ship, then you can have it shipped in 1-2 weeks. If we have to have a yarn made for you, then it can be up to 4 weeks. But you will have Fiber Art made especially for you.

See more about this in my Etsy Store.

Other news. My knitters are finally in production. We had to work out a few more kinks than I expected but they are well on their way. I hope to finally be able to put plenty more up for sale soon!

Here is one of my latest. There are some new yarns listed in the Etsy store.

Lots of News!!

Thank you all of you that referred knitters to me, or replied yourself. I have a long list and a few I am working with now. If you responded and I am not currently using you, please do not fret. We have a lot in store for the next 6 months, and I may need more of you.

The new knitters are working on their samples for me to check and approve. We hope to be in production VERY soon. In the meantime everyone is getting anxious, and eager for more product and I assure you that it is coming and it blows the old product out of the water!!!

Some new things...
I have started offering new Fiber Art Cocoons. These are going to be hand knit by me, and will contain very high end, hand spun, hand dyed yarns. They will be sold as One of a Kind or Limited Edition. Depending on how many yards and how large or small I make the product. Due to the Limited Edition, OOAK, and expense of the yarns $35+ dollars, these will be more expensive then my others. But rest assured, if you want originality, and a piece of Fiber Art for your Art images, this is what you have been waiting for.

I will be adding listings for Custom Cocoons as well. If you have color visions that you want and do not see, you can have a Custom Yarn made and then Custom knitted for you as well.

The cocoon smaller. I had many complaints of {the wrap} being too small that we were a touch generous on the {cocoon}. I have decided to go back to my original plan and ideas and make them how I envisioned. It is not for everyone, but I really want things to be tighter to show the baby.

The regular cocoons will not contain any Craft Store of Drug store yarns! I am stepping it up several notches! You will only find luxury yarns from me now, and all new colors and textures.

New shapes....YAY! I am very excited about this. I have been brainstorming for a while now about new shapes and ideas. I tackled the colors, and textures, now it is time to design again. Keep checking in for new product over the summer. I will also be collaborating with some well known photographers with some new designs as well...that is all I can tell you for now :)

New site...I should have a new website or blog in the next month or so. This little blogspot is not cutting it for me. I am just trying to figure out the best way to present them, and be able to sell them without Etsy. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Etsy, but I want to have more images, and more of "my" look.

Since I can't post with out is my first One of a Kind (sold), and two others OOAK yarns. One is sold, and the other is available in the Etsy Store

Phew...I think that is all for now!
Much love, Marta
