We have 11 newly arrived returning colorways of Sea Silk, in plenty of time for our Gift-A-Long discount. Delight anyone you love with something made of Sea Silk, one of the most loved yarns of all time. Our selection right now is as generous as the season, here.
We’ve noticed that more and more of you are discovering the creamy soft wonderfulness of Hand Maiden’s Silk Maiden, so we have brought some more in. Silk Maiden’s single ply of silk and wool (a perfectly balanced 50/50 blend) packs more delectable caresses per yard than you can shake a knitting needle at. Not to mention how fantastic it looks as a shell, or skirt, or wrap, or, you name it. No longer one of the best kept secrets in fiber, Silk Maiden is available here in renewed abundance!
Silk Maiden is one of the yarns that qualifies for our Gift-a-Long sale. Just type the word ‘gift’ into the Sale Code box, click ‘Recalculate’ and save 10%!
Over the years we’ve had so many crocheters (and knitters, too!) ask for a set like this that we know you will be as excited as we are to learn that, once again, addi has listened. Addi’s answer? addiColours! This set of 9 Color Coded Crochet Hooks, all nestled neatly into a slim travel case is just about the best present anyone who loves crochet could ever have. And they are here in time for the holidays!
All shops have been limited to only 5 sets each for this first shipment, but a 2nd shipment with an abundance of addiColours will be at our door mid-December. So order now, we’ll ship the 5 we have, then backorder the rest and ship them out in time for Christmas. The sweetest crochet treat ever awaits you, here.
We have 18 newly arrived colorways of Hand Maiden’s Cashmere 4-ply available for your gifting pleasure. In addition to being an ultra-premium quality cashmere (DK weight), Cashmere 4-ply is also part of our Ravelry Holiday Fiber Fest Gift-A-Long. This means you can save 10% on any Cashmere 4-ply you buy just by typing “gift” into the Sale Code box on your shopping cart and clicking “Recalculate.” It’s just that simple, and this cashmere is just that wonderful, here.
When I think “lace,” words like “lavish” and “luscious” spring to mind. This is why Sea Lace says “lace” so well. It is luscious lavishness itself, and the lace you knit with it will gleam with a silky, drapey beauty for years and years to come. This lace weight version of Sea Silk is nothing less than gorgeous, and we have 11 newly arrived colorways here.
Let the cold winds blow! Slubby Blue is here to keep us warm and cozy on the frostiest days! Eleven colorways have arrived, thick and soft and comfy in all their Blue Face splendor. This Super Bulky 100% BFL Wool is one that needs to be touched to be fully appreciated, it is so filled with sensual goodness. Find your next scarves, hats, vests, sweaters and blankets here.
Nearly 2 years in the making, this morning we launched our completely redesigned, reprogrammed and re-envisioned Colorsong Yarn web site! To say that we are happy to have made it this far is an understatement.
At first quick glance, things look pretty much the same as before; but once you take a closer look and poke around a bit, you’ll see some significant changes. The biggest change is that, with a few beloved exceptions, we are no longer offering kits per se. Instead, we have made it possible for you to create your own kits using our new Pattern Pairings.
The Pattern Pairings section is divided pretty much as the Kits section was in the old site. The difference comes when you click on a design you’re interested in: this will take you to the yarn page associated with the design where you can view the pattern information, download or order the pattern, and purchase the yarn you need all from the same spot.
Our pattern collection features some old, good friends and some brand new (to us) designs. Some of the patterns are free downloads, courtesy of Fleece Artist/Hand Maiden, or of other designers. Some are free via our web site, some are free on Ravelry. Other patterns can be purchased from us or from the designer via Ravelry. This allows us to help you find designs that are created specifically for Fleece Artist and Hand Maiden fibers (or are just such a good match that we know you want to know), regardless of whether we sell the pattern or someone else does.
Whatever the case, our new web site is poised to get you the pattern you want by delivering it directly or by taking you to where you can order it, and to do all that from the page where your yarn awaits.
We plan to add many more patterns and to change featured patterns much more often ~ part of the beauty of the new web site from our end is that it is so much easier to do this now. If you know of a design that you would like to see us feature, just let us know about it and we’ll do everything we can to make it happen quickly.
Our yarn pages are a bit tidied-up and now have pattern pairings on them, but otherwise are pretty much the same as before. We will be adding more yarns soon, so keep watching! We have also kept Perl Grey’s remarkable pewter collection and our Favorite Tools section – some things are just too good to change!
So, come on in and make yourself at home. Look around, enjoy your time here, and please accept our thanks that you have come and our deep gratitude for the years of support you have given us. Should you discover any glitches we missed, please let us know so we can fix them.
Joyous knitting, crocheting, weaving and more!

Fleece Artist’s trail blazing Trail Socks are again abundant in our yarn room! Ten renewing colorways arrived just the other day, bedecking this premium merino sock yarn with color both festive and sublime. Even sweeter is the fact that Trail Socks is one of the featured yarns in our Holiday Fiber Fest Gift-A-Long on Ravelry. All you have to do to save 10% on all the Trail Socks your stocking can hold is to type the word ‘Gift’ into the Sale Code box on your shopping cart, then click ‘Recalculate.’ Happy Trails, indeed, here.
The terrific thing about this time of year is that it is just so darn much fun. Yes, it’s also a bit hurried, and one does tend to bustle about more than usual, but there are just so many reasons for good cheer that “Joy” pretty much tops the list of experiences. As soon as the first frost visited our area, we knew it was the harbinger of the delights of the seasons ~ no matter what you believe, or where you live, there are just so many things to celebrate in the coming months.
In the spirit of the season, we want to share our excitement with you. And so [trumpet fanfare, please!], we invite you to join us on Ravelry for a Holiday Fiber Fest Gift-A-Long. This is an opportunity to create gifts for others, gifts for yourself, gifts for the sheer joy of gifting. And to create alongside fellow fiber lovers who always bring a generous portion of inspiration and enthusiasm along with them. Pick any project(s) you like, find a yarn you love (see the huge list below!), and share the merriment with us! As with great yarns, there’s no end to the reasons for happiness.
Our Holiday Fiber Fest Gift-A-Long begins now (Nov. 1) with cast-on day being Nov. 15. Then on we go until Dec. 31, when we can celebrate our creations and look forward to the coming New Year together. In the spirit of the season, we’ve amassed a super-abundance of yarns for our Gift-A-Long, too. You can save 10% on any of them of simply by typing the word “Gift” into the Sale Code box of your shopping cart, then clicking “Recalculate” before you check out. Your discount will magically appear as our gift to you.
Here are the yarns we’ve chosen for our Holiday Fiber Fest Gift-A-Long. Find what you love and save 10%!

A vibrant collection of Casbah just arrived – 10 colorways in all! Casbah is becoming a “go-to” yarn for socks, of course, but for so much more, also. We’ve seen increasing numbers of sweaters, shawls, hats, gloves, and much more showing up in Casbah, rendering each design beautifully. For softness, you can’t beat it’s merino/cashmere touch. It has stitch definition and drape everyone will love, and Casbah is durable beyond any expectation, surviving the most prosaic sort of machine wash and dry you can dish out. It’s all to love, here.
