We at Oink Pigments have an exciting opportunity to do something we have never done before: we are taking our yarn on the road! This little piggy (that's Helena) is filling her car with yarn and going on a great road trip adventure, from San Diego to Indianapolis.

New Spring colors & patterns

New Spring colors & patterns

Two gorgeous new Spring colors, three delightful patterns, and some upcoming events that are not-to-be-missed!

Happy New Yarn

Happy New Yarn

Many long hours in the dye studio concocting a series of visions and combining them with a series of happy accidents yielded a delightful palette of new colors. None of these are anywhere near Pantone's picks for 2016's "colors of the year" but we adore them, and we hope you will too. And next is an extra special treat that we've been dreaming about for ages, and we're beyond thrilled to finally be able to make it happen...

It's been a little busy...

It's been a little busy...

The holidays are in full swing, which means that the busy Fall yarn festival season has come and gone. There are only five shopping days left until Christmas, if you count today and Christmas Eve, which is when all the real celebrating happens in my family. At Oink Pigments, we are knee deep in executing our plans for TNNA and Stitches West. Unfortunately our approach to yarn show preparations mirrors that of the Christmas knitting schedule -- we always seem to think there are more hours in the day or days in the week than there actually are. 

And the winners are..

And the winners are..

Over the weekend we tabulated all the entries, rated and randomized our selections, and we're thrilled to announce the winners! Prizes will ship early next week. If you are listed as a winner below, no need to take any action, aside from waiting patiently beside your mailbox.

Without further ado...

Silk Circle Scarf (say that three times fast!)

Silk Circle Scarf (say that three times fast!)

Another shiny new thing that debuted at TNNA: Oink Pigments Scarf. This is a 100% Habotai Silk Circle Scarf which we hand dye as if it were a skein of yarn to match each of our existing colorways. These are an awesome accessory by themselves, and we think they're EXTRA fabulous when paired with a matching or complementary yarn.
