  • Flash sales. Twice a week - on Mondays and Fridays - we feature one or more undyed natural yarns on sale at 15% off the regular price. Flash sales run for 24 hours or until our current stock has been sold out, whichever comes first. Depending on the flash sale yarns, savings can range from $3.00 to $6.00 per skein and from $5.00 to $12.00 per cone. If you'd like to be notified immediately when Flash Sales are posted, contact us with your email address.
  • $6.99 shipping to all U.S. addresses. That's matter whether you order one skein or 20 cones, the shipping charge is only $6.99. And, your yarn will be sent by USPS priority mail so it arrives quickly.
  • We have organic yarns, produced in a natural way without the use of chemicals. Organic yarns are becoming increasingly popular and are especially sought after for use in baby and children's clothing and blankets. We carry several organic yarn choices in merino wool, cotton, and cotton/rayon blends.
That's it for this post. Stay tuned for more great reasons to buy from Catnip Yarns.

Our best,
Marty & Sue @ Catnip Yarns

News from the Catnip Yarns garden...

It's almost time for peas. It's so great to be able to go out the back door and pick some beautiful fresh snap peas for our lunch salad. From the looks of the pea vines this morning, it won't be more than another week or so and we'll be picking.

This year, we have a local summer CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) share from Wolf Pine Farm in Alfred, Maine, and will be getting fresh, organic veggies and fruits on a weekly basis from them, but we always like to plant a few things in our own raised beds. We are growing peas, tomatoes, cucumbers, pak choy, kale, & chard - all good for tasty salads and summer meals.
What's in your garden?

HOW BIG IS YOUR STASH? is the moment of truth! Just how big is YOUR yarn stash?

I admit mine is pretty big and just when I think it is finally under control, I find "one more" yarn to add to the mix. I'm pretty sure the plastic storage tub count for the yarn stash is now up to about 6, but there might be one or two more somewhere that are buried underneath my fabric and craft tub stashes! I can't help it - I love fiber and textiles and there is something so wonderful about all the colors, textures, and possibilities.

In fact, right now, after thinking and writing this about my yarn stash, I just might dig out a couple of those storage tubs and see what inspires me for my next project!

My best,
Sue @ Catnip Yarns
