We have a WINNER!

Welcome to the newest addition to Crown Mountain Farms :....
Sock Hop Yarns

And the winner of our contest is..... Trek ! Hey Trek- please email me asap with your choice of colorways... you get first dibs!

The four little words that we were looking for were "handyed handspun superwash merino" sock yarn. Yes, I know it was a tough contest... but what fun would it be if it had been easy? !

The wizard has been a busy girl - and we have come up with a fabulous NEW line of sock yarns to delight you ! Introducing nine colorways (with more colors to come very very soon) in a handspun superwash merino sock yarn.

This line of sock yarns is called "Sock Hop" yarns..... Your toes will be tapping, and your feet will be dancing as you wear the socks you knit from this wonderful new line of yarns! Each skein is lovingly hand dyed and handspun (one pair of socks uses two skeins.. and takes about 4 hours to spin). We enlisted the spinning expertise of a friend from Oregon - New Hue Handspun.

Those of us 'behind the scenes' have been singing and dancing for a month or two as we created this wonderful yarn. Please join us, and sing along as you knit with this wonderful new yarn!

Offered exclusively on the Intrepid Fiberwizard Blog (for the short term) here are the nine new colorways:

It's my party

Great Balls of Fire

Heard it thru the Grapevine

Good Vibrations


It takes two Baby

Heat Wave

The Beat Goes On

Hard Day's Night

Each skein of yarn is unique due to the hand dyed, handspun nature of this yarn. Your socks will truly be a work of art! The cost per skein is $13.00 (you will need two skeins for an average pair of socks) Each skein contains approximately 200 yards of luscious yarn!
For the next month, this yarn will only be available by special order (due to the limited quantities available) - Eventually we will be selling it off the website.
If you are ready to order some, please email me :
teyani AT crownmountainfarms DOT com
and I will give you details about how to send your charge card info in a secure manner.

We are totally thrilled - our toes are tappin', twirlin' while we twist and shout at the farm !Come join the party and DANCE !

Such great colors! I'm thinking that Great Balls of Fire or It's It Takes Two Baby would look great as Embossed Leaves! Love the names of the colorways, too.

Very cool Teyani! Now I see why you were so excited about this :o) How about Grapevine? If you have 2 skeins in stock I'd love it. You know my addy and I believe you have my card info on file :o) Yay!

So close! The only word I didn't get was handspun (who've thunk it)?

Congrats Trek!

Very, very cool Teyani!

I would love to have two of the 'It Takes Two Baby'. You have my info, I'm sure!

Just a note to all of you wonderful blog friends- the colors of the yarn are MOST true in the picture I took of them in a circle.
The light was fading fast when I took the closeups.. (I'll improve on this for the website - and thanks for your patience)
I have about 6 skeins of each colorway in stock and they're goin' fast :-)
Please remember that I cannot answer you unless you email me seperately - (limitation of blogger and my techo-challenged brain..)

If the color is more true in the wheel, is it too late to change my request to Great Balls of Fire? No matter if it is too late.

Wow - those are fantastic colours. This is not fair when I really cannot buy any more yarn...
