A Glimpse of a Sweater Design and More


I posted this on the Black Pearl Yarns blog, but I thought I would put it here as well. If you haven't signed onto that blog through bloglines yet, please do!

We truly are so fortunate to have found the designers that are working with us on new patterns. Some of the patterns that will be coming out soon include amazing socks by Gina House, a lovely scarf and shawl by Miriam Felton, several sweaters by Melissa Wehrle and Michele Woodford. Crochet sweaters by Angela Best. A purse from Ivette Tecodor. Lacy fingerless gloves by Sara Lucas. AND MORE. I am only really giving you a hint of what is to come because the patterns are really amazing. All of the designers love the yarn and they all keep coming up with new project ideas. Plus there are a few more colors coming out soon. And also several new yarns.... You can read about any of these designers on the Black Pearl Yarns blog.

The Black Pearl Yarns and patterns will be for sale soon in a new internet shop called One Planet Yarn and Fiber. Bookmark One Planet in your favorite sites now as the site will be released in a few weeks. The URL will be The shop will feature gorgeous and unusual yarns, fibers, spinning items, designs and patterns, finished items, goods from indie companies, artisan crafted wood needles and needle cases and much more from countries around the globe.

The idea for One Planet came to us during the last few years when so many horrible things were happening around our world. But it was amazing how people from all over could talk about their love of yarn and/or knitting,fiber, spinning, etc despite their political or religious or ethnic backgrounds. A percent of our net profits will be donated to an organization devoted to promoting world peace efforts around the world. In addition, our goal is to represent as many countries as we can over time.

If you have any products you think we might be interested in carrying in our store, please contact us at We also might be looking for more designers for the future and independent pattern companies too. Several other yarn lines are also in development through both Black Pearl Yarns and Yarn Botanika. These yarns as well as some of the newer lines we will carry from Uruguay, Chile, England, Argentina, China and Australia
will be available on a much larger scale in the future.

There also soon will be a new blot for One Planet Yarn and Fiber at which will show all of the new items are they are released.

Melissa Wehrle sent me a glimse of this gorgeous pattern she is working on in Ginger Peach. When we saw her sweater sketches, we flipped, to be honest.

Take a peek! I love this color!
