Something new

Why was there a clothesbasket full of BBF sock yarn in my living room this week (actually, several clothesbaskets full of BBF sock yarn)?




This very day, I shipped my first big wholesale order of sock yarn to the inimitable Sheri at the Loopy Ewe. Yes, Black Bunny Fibers is coming to the Loopy Ewe. . .



It was a bit of a challenge for me to try to create multiple skeins of yarn that constitute "dye lots," and the practicalities of producing yarn on a larger scale than I'm used to is a little different, too. I couldn't do this all the time, and I don't think I could handle any more wholesale customers on this scale, and I have no intention of shutting down my own website. That means that for the foreseeable future, you can enjoy BBF yarn both at my dot-com AND as soon as it arrives and is uploaded to the Loopy Ewe's website. (And if you haven't had the pleasure of shopping with The Loopy Ewe, hoo-boy, do you have a treat awaiting you!)

Now please excuse me while I pace nervously about, hoping that Sheri is pleased with this large carton of blue-faced leicester superwash sock yarn that is en route even as I write this. . .

Hurrah for you!! The skeins look amazing. I wish my washing basket looked like that.

Congrats! That's great news!

Laura said...

Congratulations Carol!!

Excuse me now, I have to hurry over to the Loopy Ewe website!

Well now you have really hit the big time! As you likely know, the Loopy Ewe has a lot of cult-like devotees - now you will, too!

Wait just a minute- the laundry basket is my thing. Therefore, you need to send it to me straightaway- and it must be filled with yarn.

Well, it was worth a try.

Carol said...

Oh, Puff, I suspect you could fill a few clothesbaskets of your own with your BBF collection...

Congratulations Carol! I can see BBF yarns being as sought after as the Wollmeise at The Loopy Ewe. I think that I will have a better chance getting my fix on your site rather than TLE tho--they snap things up really quick!!

Congratulations!! How wonderful for you and for Sherri. I'll definitely look forward to BBF showing up over at the Loopy Ewe!

Carol, do you have any left? Not that I mind going to visit Loopy, but. . .

Hey! My friend the political worker slept with the blue Obama skein next to her bed for the whole month before the election.

Oooooh...BFL sock yarn. Sounds scrumptious.

That is such a pretty basket of yarn. I just keep scrolling back up to look at it.
