Photos I Finally Like

"Lilac" cotton/cashmere blend
Have been spending a lot of time updating my photos and reorganizing my studio (Spring!) and really enjoying it. A new camera, tripod, and rethinking the lighting as well as watching 50 million photography tutorials has really helped. I'm not there yet, but I am much, much closer to my "ideal photography".

Happy Friday!


2 things to be excited about today:

1-My newly repaired mini flax wheel is waiting for me at the post office


2-I have the whole weekend to play with new dye colors and combinations
I am really into the "pale combos" at the moment

About Swoon Fibers new loyalty program



 

I’ve been thinking about a way to thank you, my customer, by giving you a flexible, meaningful reward.

Without your support, I would not be able to do this thing that I love to do, working with fiber and exploring color.

I came up with the ‘Swoon Dollars’ , and easy way for you to earn discounts for future purchases.

 Here's how it works: For every skein of yarn you buy in my Etsy shop, I will send you a discount code for that amount, to use on your next purchase of yarn. Simple!


These rewards don’t expire, so you can save them all year to use for holiday gift-giving, for example. Or you may use them up as you would like, in the way that you like.

CUSTOM: You may use these reward dollars towards a custom order.

GIFTING: You may also give them away – just let me know who you have gifted your dollars to, and I will note it on your “account”.




{{Things you CANNOT do with Swoon Dollars: coupon codes do not work for skeins of yarn that are ON SALE, or for Sari Silk Ribbon, or for stitch markers. In other words, they only work for skeins of yarn that are not being promoted in any other way, such as “Destash Du Jour” sales}}

Playing with Darks

I've been really enjoying dark, dark colors recently:
"Skye" yak and bamboo blend in "RAVEN"

"Ariel" mink blend in "MOONLIT"

Mink handspun in "Byzantine"

Kid Mohair lace weight in "HEART THROB"

"Aria" 100% silk in "GEMSTONES"
I find that the deeper colors really appeal to me, i love getting that "glow" of teh deep teals and purples, and especially chestnut shades as pert of the neutral portions.
