Highland Fibre Fling – 5th Anniversary Celebration!

Come join us for our 5th Annual Highland Fibre Fling — the day every summer when Indigodragonfly opens up the house and studio to all fibre enthusiasts.

It’s our favourite day of the year, started 5 years ago when Ron said “You know what would be fun?…” Every year on the third Saturday in August we open up our doors, bring out all the yarn, fibre and other goodies, fire up the BBQ and ask you to come and join us for the day. It’s a wonderful day of yarn, knitting, crochet, spinning, food, dyeing demos and the occasional piñata.

CustomFit measurement/consultation services! 

We are now a CustomFit LYS, so will be offering a measurement service/consultation/pattern package at the Fling.  Let us help you on your way to making your perfect sweater.

This year is extra special, because this day will also mark our fifth anniversary. Five years of colour, fun, fibre and laughter! So expect some extra surprises.

Yarn Update: July 9/14!!

Hiya,

Okay, so it’s time for more yarn goodness!! On the menu today is a fine assortment of MerGoat Sock yarn, a platter o’ Merino Silk 4-Ply Sock, and three Blue Plate Specials: SuperBaa DK, SuperBaa Worsted and Humpspun Sport!! As mentioned a few days ago on Ravelry, The SuperBaa DK & SuperBaa Worsted are 100% super wash merino, and are taking place of the old Superwash DK & Superwash Worsted yarn. They have better yardage (240 yds and 220 yds/115 g respectively), are waaaaaayyyy more soft & squishy, and are taking/holding colour a lot better! The Humpspun Sport is a 70% silk/30% camel blend, 350 yds/115g per skein, super soft and with a lovely halo! And as an added bonus, we’ve decided to unleash on you the unsuspecting masses a new gaggle of Cute & Cuddly Mutant Zombie Squirrels of Doom pouch kits, as well as a new accessory, the C&CMZSoD Superhero/Supervillain Cape & Mask kit!! Squirrel kits & cape/mask kits can be found on the KITS page of the SHOP main page!!

To Order, go to the SHOP page and select NEW products – that should bring up  all of today’s goodies! Here’s a photo spread of today’s stuff, so kick back and Enjoy!!
