Today! Blue Moooooooooooon!!!! That’s right, Tina Newton from Blue Moon Fiber Arts!
Tina Newton was Marly’s guest today, and oh what a ball these two had today!! Tina told us her story about how she got into the fiber industry, and what aspect is her favorite (spinning) and how she got started in hand-dying her spun yarn. Blue Moon’s yarns are all hand-dyed (there are 29 different yarns, and 700 colorways…holy cow!!), and are dyed in small batches, and follow a very specific “recipe” for each, so if you see a colorway you love, make sure that you snap up a couple extra skeins!!
Some of Blue Moon’s (there are 29 different ones, we couldn’t list them all!) super yummy yarns:
Woobu: (Note from Jolene…I just LOVE this name…cracked me up!)
Socks That Rock/Rockin’ Sock Club:
Tina has a kick booty sock club, that has taken off to epic proportions, and because it’s taken off and is now so big, there are only a certain number of spots available each other. You can check out their page (here) about the Socks that Rock and Rockin’ Sock Club. Make sure your family knows to get you a membership to Rockin’ Sock Club for the holidays, they open up the registration/gift certificates then so that you can be guaranteed a spot in next year’s club!
(Jolene here again…My personal favorite colors of the Socks that Rock yarn? Medium weight After Sundown or Bejewelled. 🙂
Big time announcement, you heard it first here on YarnThing!! **Blue Moon’s yarns are coming to local yarn stores!** You’ve seen them in booths at trade shows, however, they are expanding and changing, and are going to go wholesale!
One of Marly’s favorite things obviously as a designer, is patterns. Make sure you check out Blue Moon Fiber’s pattern selection! They have quite the plethora of beautiful patterns, covering baby things, garments, socks (of course), and non-garment things. Tina has scored the cream of the crop to design for her, so make sure you check out the pattern page.
