A few years ago we had an ice storm at Christmas, which caused quite a bit of damage. There were felled trees, covered cars, and downed power lines; a real mess. It was a beautiful mess though, and of course we spent it outdoors with cameras.
That year was a good year to think about the true meaning of Christmas. Lots of folks who normally wouldn’t spend the holidays together congregated at the homes that had electricity, and there was a general good vibe of strangers helping each other out and laughing about the inconvenient, but lovely weather. So, a Blue Christmas isn’t a sad thing; it’s an amazing thing.
I wanted to start this one early to make sure everyone has their yarn in hand well ahead of Christmas, so this colour launches on November 1st at noon EST (We’ll be at Vogue Seattle and need to sleep, haha) , and will be available a little longer than usual; until November 5th at 9pm EST.
There will be special bases that we normally don’t offer, including a luxurious Merino/Cashmere/Nylon sock, and a Merino/Cashmere/Stellina Sparkle sock. I’m also working on a kit that will have all kinds of goodies for that fiber lover in your life, details coming soon!
Blue Christmas goes from a silvery grey to a deep blue, reminiscent of the sky on those snowy evenings, just at dusk. Maybe while you’re out tobogganing, or warm inside with a cup of hot chocolate. It’s festive and shiny; especially if you opt for MCN sock, Sparkle Sock, or Cashmere Lace.
Please remember that, once I take the product down from our website, I start dyeing to order. Depending on the popularity of the colour, it can take me up to 4 weeks to get it all in the mail. My commitment is that it will all ship before the end of November, to minimize the risk of holiday shipping delays.
Stay tuned to find out what our gift kits will look like! There will be a limited quantity (likely only 30) so you might want to set your clock for this one 🙂 This will be our last pop-up for the year and we’ll start again in Mid-Jan!
