Wooly Wonka Fiber of the Month Club

fireworks

Get in on the action! At the beginning of every month, the brilliant Anne Podlesak of Wooly Wonka will send us two beautiful unspun fibers, each in an exclusive colorway! One will be a luxury base with alpaca, silk or exotic fibers, and the other will be 100% wool. Each base will come in a 4-ounce braid and retail at an average of $18-$20. January? Anne is sending us a merino/alpaca/silk roving for the luxury fiber and Polwarth wool for the 100% wool fiber.  And the colors? Exclusive! Awesome! Anne is dyeing up 2 exclusive-to-The Yarn Company colorways (of course!)  - Auld Lang Syne and Fireworks – Just the beginning of a fabulous relationship with a fabulous company.

Each month? Look for more exclusive colorways! A cool colorway and a brighter colorway, in a basic and luxury fiber, each!  We cannot wait!

 

Anne has plans to develop some exclusive yarns, clubs, and  pattern kits for The Yarn Company in the future, and we can’t wait! Details to come.

 

For six years, Anne Poldesak has run her own dye studio and online shop, Wooly Wonka. Thanks to her degree in costume design and history, her dyeing and designing career had a head start. Anne writes, “I am inspired by a lot of books I read; many of my colorways are based on a place in a book, or a character in a novel.” Much of her designing comes from literary inspiration as well. Anne credits her “inescapable” bookish DNA, as she is the daughter of English teachers.

 

To our great joy, Anne’s specialty is layered-color kettle dyes. “ I like developing colorways that have 3, 4, 6 layers to them; those ones that read blue across a room, but up close, you can see some grays and greens and purples hidden under the top dye color.” Anne’s designs have been featured in Interweave Press’s Spin-Off magazine, Jane Austen KnitsThe Unofficial Harry Potter Knits, and two Cooperative Press books. She also has upcoming designs in Louet’s Spring 2014 collection and Twist Collective’s Spring 2014 collection.
