We hope you are all rested up from an amazingly fun Spa 2016 gathering here, in Freeport! I will tell you, we ( thePurly Girls) were tired but so very happy to see so many enthusiastic faces. Some we welcomed back and some of you were brand new! SO MUCH FIBER LOVE, right? Many thanks goes to our Friend Judy (Robins) Thomas from The Kiwi Pop Studios for bringing her new BLING! You are amazing and, I might add, very energetic to be able to bring all the beautiful yarns you did and still have a big smile on your face at the end of the weekend! Thank you Judy for sharing your lovely fibers and your cheerful self with us!
We shared a ton of laughs and exchanged some excellent information with other enthusiasts.
We had a big winner for the Grand Prize which was highly coveted!
Congratulations Sarah L!
You will be busy for quite some time now!
We are also grateful to be able to say that our yarn seems to be a hit! We have basically sold out of the sock weight and much of the aran. The special skeins with alpaca and Tencel are gone as are the superfine merino lace sock. We had some valuable feedback, as well! You would like to see a sock yarn with some reinforcement added (instead of just 100% wool) so we are moving toward a merino/silk blend I will be dying up soon for your approval (I'll post it when we have it in the shop). We also have found a yummy blend silk/merino worsted weight we will share soon!
Stay tuned for more fun OOAK dyed sock yarns and also for some possible "sweater quantity" worsted weight batches in the shop soon!
BTW: I am choosing to use Maine yarn for my Blue Moon Yarn bases! Just thought you should know!
Blue Moon Yarn is a new product line especially for you!
I have found all kinds of yummy yarns, and I've dyed them up for you to knit into one or two skein projects! They are called Blue Moon because they are only available 'once in a blue moon' and they are also dyed in a unique way (no recipes, just color intuition). I am an artist, therefore I prefer to design and paint in a unique fashion. Artists like "different". I create, I don't produce. When I create these beautiful yarns I do it with a passion for color and my love for making beautiful products for our customers to enjoy!
With this said, we wish to present to you our very first "batch" of Blue Moon Yarns for your enjoyment! These are "SPA 2016 1st editions"! We hope you enjoy them!
Knit, Eat, Sleep (repeat)
Susan, Patty and the rest of our talented staff we fondly refer to as our "Purly Girls"!
P.S. By unique, we mean OOAK! We cannot (and do not) guarantee they will ever be available in a particular color way again. If you see something you love then buy it. It will not be available at a later date. Blue Moon Yarns will be available beginning THIS Thursday (Spa week), We will be open until 8pm for Knit Night!
