Luscious Pre-Order October 2018
This round's Luscious offering is Polwarth/Seacell/Kid Mohair 50/25/25. This is a delicious, drapey, wavy, delightful blend! It's soft and bouncy, but it has good strength, too. Shawls, mitts, hats, cowls, scarves, lace, cables, it's versatile and definitely neck-worthy! Seacell is a silky man-made fiber made from seaweed. Because it is a cellulosic fiber, like Bamboo, it doesn't take my acid dyes, giving the blend a "frosted" look. For examples, view the Ice Cave or Splash colorway photos.
Select your colorway and quantity above. You can order multiple colorways by adding one colorway to your cart, and then coming back and adding another. Each unit (1) represents a 4-ounce bump; ordering four is 1 pound of fiber, and ordering 10 would be 2.5 pounds of fiber.
If you select "Other," please include your colorway request in the comments box during checkout. I may need to follow up with you to ensure I can dye what you are requesting. If you can, please contact me before you order to discuss dyeing any colorways not listed above.
Examples of colorways shown on this page have not been dyed on the Exploration base, because it has never been offered before. Colorways will look different batch to batch and on different bases.
Please keep any pre-orders separate from ready-to-ship orders in your cart; make your pre-order and your ready-to-ship order two separate orders. If you submit an order that contains both pre-order fiber and ready-to-ship fiber, your ready-to-ship fiber will not be shipped until the pre-order fiber has been received and dyed.
Pre-ordering is available now for this round, and orders will need to be complete by end of day Friday 12 October. I will order fiber on Saturday 13 October; I’ll get the fiber in late November and start dyeing. Shipping timeline depends on number of orders received and my dyeing schedule. All orders will be dyed prior to opening up the next round of pre-orders.
The mill can take 4-6 weeks to process an order (although it is often less time), and dyeing may take several weeks to months depending on where your order is on the list. Orders will be dyed in the order they were received (if you order first, I will dye yours first). I will keep people up to date about the dyeing status through the newsletter (so be sure to sign up).
What If I Want Different Fiber?
If you would like a base other than the 4 that are being offered, or a Savage Blend that I don't currently have available, just contact me. In most cases, the minimum order for a base that is not on that quarter’s offering will be 1 pound (either dyed or undyed). I can even order fiber for you that I don’t have on my list of bases; just let me know what you’re thinking and we can discuss the options!
