Hello, it’s been a while since I last updated the blog — summer has been crazy for me in every area of life except for Annie Yarn. The whole yarn industry experienced a pretty slow season, so I’m not surprised we’ve felt it, being an indie brand and all. But fall is looking promising, as we have local yarn shops planning to place orders with us! We really want to focus on growing that side of the business.
So to gear up for those orders, we’re taking a hiatus from the online side of things. That means custom orders are closed, we are closing all monthly subscriptions this month (meaning September will be the last shipment for a while), and the Woolhouse Sweater Club is closed. Furthermore, starting September 3rd, the Woolhouse online shop will be closed until we can do some renovations. If there’s anything in stock in the shop you want to nab, better do it by then!
I know all of this might make it sound like Annie Yarn and Woolhouse Fiber Co. could be closing down, but we’re not! We just need some time to get our thoughts and ideas together. With my new job, Jenn has taken over the dye process (bet you couldn’t even tell when she did cuz she’s so good!). We’re just wanting to take a step back, gather new creativity, and then be able to move forward with a stronger vision of where we want to go from here, which we know will include more local yarn shops carrying us.
We’re not exactly sure how long our online hiatus will last, but we will send out newsletter updates as we get things going again! Make sure you’re signed up!
