For a very, very long time, I drooled over the yarn dyed by Woolberry Fiber. This fabulous yarn is the brainchild of Bethany, originally from Colorado. Now she and her husband, Rhys, who is from New Zealand, both dye yarn! Talk about an adorable entrepreneur partnership! To be able to talk to your spouse about yarn! Wow!
Woolberry has a lot to offer knitters and crocheters and it’s a pleasure to talk about this great independent dyer today!
The fibers of Woolberry come in a variety of delectable bases to choose from, including:
Berry Cashmere (Fingering – 80% SW Merino/10% Nylon/10% Cashmere)
Berry Cozy DK (80% SW Merino/10% Nylon/10% Cashmere)
Berry DK (100% SW Merino)
Berry Merino (Fingering – 100% Merino)
Berry Mohair (78% Mohair/22% silk)
Berry Natural (Fingering – 100% SW Merino)
Berry Sock (80% SW Bluefaced Leicester/20% Nylon)
Berry Suri (Alpaca/Silk)
Berry Tweed (85% Merino/15% NEPS)
Berry Woolen (100% Non-SW Merino)
The colorways offered by Woolberry are beautifully dyed. There are solid colors and speckled colorways. Most speckled yarns tend toward the softer side with vibrant flecks of color. This makes a perfect combination for shawls, sweaters, and socks.
Woolberry always has something for sale on the website. If you follow them on social media, they give hints of shop updates. They also have a monthly subscription box, called Woolberry Wardrobe. It often includes yarn, candles, and other goodies for the home and your crafty indulgences.
Ease of Shopping
The Woolberry website is easy to use and is shoppable by base. I like this method of website organization – you can more easily find what you want, in the right base.
Shipping is reasonable. And relatively fast. Be advised that right now, Bethany and her family are moving, so shipping will be delayed a bit, until they get re-settled in their new home.
Woolberry is a fantastic independent dyer that I will continue to support in the future. The yarns are just lovely – and very unique. Be sure to follow them on Instagram to see what fabulous products they come out with next!
