I just discovered that my old blog is still alive here on WordPress, despite of all the things happened in recent years.
And in some weird way, statistics say that people still read it, so I feel I own you all an explanation what has happened since my last blog post over two years ago.
Main reason why I probably haven’t updated the page here, is that Woolmint got it’s own website with blog and online store.
At first it was only published in Estonian and we shipped to Estonia, but in this January, after major updates on our website, we published it in English as well and started shipping worldwide.
This is how it looks:
Some of you may remember that we also had a physical yarn store in Pärnu, Estonia – quite fancy Scandinavian-style place with a cafe, lots of craft supplies and finest selection of Estonian made handicraft.
I’m sad to say that we closed it in September 2016.
Main reason for that was a new challenge we face since autumn – Woolmint is now officially SandnesGarn distributor in all Baltic countries (Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania), which means that we physically did not have time for running a cafe and we needed to rent a bigger place where to build a warehouse.
Since then I’ve been on the road a lot, visiting all those countries, different yarn stores, events and so on. But it’s so fun!
Besides that, we started our own line of hand dyed yarns.
Woolmint Symphony is our first “baby” from this line.
Symphony is a 80% merino, 10% cashmere and 10% nylon superwash sock yarn in bright colors. We currently have only 7 different shades available, but at least three more will be available in upcoming week.
Which do you like most? Mozart, Chopin or our local Tubin and Tormis?
I’m also writing knitting patterns actively again. We have a very fun shawl KAL project coming out in April, make sure to check back for more information 🙂
