Update: New Products & Sock Yarn Sale

Shop Update: My remaining stock has returned from SAFF. I will get the Etsy shop back up by then end of the day today. To celebrate the reopening of my shop and to make room for new products coming soon I am going to have a sock yarn sale. All sock yarn in the shop will be on sale for $16. Sale will run for three days. Several new Astrobatts will be listed soon as well.

New Yarn Update: Coming soon to Rocket Yarn is superwash worsted weight merino yarn. Skeins will be 215 yards each. This is a new item for me so I'm up for suggestions. I usually dye each skein one-of-a-kind but I'm considering dyeing the worsted weight in batches of two or three so you can buy a matching set. For those of you who buy hand dyed worsted weight yarn, what do you look for as far as yardage? Do you mostly buy for one skein projects or do you look for lots with two, three or more matching skeins? Input greatly appreciated! Also coming soon are two new sock yarns. A tightly twisted two-ply superwash merino and a merino-cashmere-nylon blend.

New Fibers Coming Soon: Rambouillet combed top and a lovely superwash merino/silk blend pencil roving. Yummy! I'm also making up some Astrobatts with a Rambouillet, silk and BFL.
