When I took my two big boxes of yarn samples to the TNNA summer show last year, I met Mike from Yarnbox.
I’d heard a little bit about Yarnbox, but was always a little suspicious of these subscription sort of business models. I was intrigued, then challenged (by the sheer volume of yarn that would be needed), and knew I wanted to be a part of this.
And so. Phydeaux’s Caresse Worsted Weight is part of February’s Yarnbox shipment (one of two independent hand dyers). We (my dad, myself, and several brave souls – including Amanda, Rijel and Stephanie – who were both invaluable and wonderful in their skeining assistance) dyed, dried, skeined and labelled … 1,700 skeins of yarn this Autumn and Winter.
That’s kind of a lot. But it changed Phydeaux – in a good way – irrevocably.
New process and systems increased dyeing capacity up to 200 a day. We can now dry nearly 200 skeins at a time. These are significant increases for us, successfully put to the test in less than a week of preparation Stitches West.
Yarnbox subscribers have, or are about to, receive their packages. If your package included Phydeaux, I really hope you love your yarn. We loved dyeing, drying, skeining and labelling it for you.
