Welcome to our monthly series - Postcard! We hope to inspire, encourage, and educate you about our company and take a little behind-the-scenes peek at what's happening in Woolberry!

What is in the postcard series? I'm glad you asked! Each month your postcard will include:
 
Our Month in Review - This will be a place where we share a little behind the scenes peek at the family behind Woolberry and I'll share what's been on my needles this month.
Happenings - This is where all shop news will be listed included shop updates and any KALs joining on. As well we will chat about any new products that will be coming to the shop.
Woolberry Wardrobe - Each month we will show you what the Wardrobe box will include for that month including a photo of the sample knit up for you to visualize!
Spotlight - This section will range from some of our favorite projects knit in our yarn by our lovely customers to our favorite products to really anything we feel is worth sharing!
Self-Care Challenge - This section is truly my favorite. Each month I will share a different little challenge that I hope you will join me in. Make 2019 a year where you care for your soul, mind, and body. Please do not feel pressured to join along, but I would love if you did!

Our Month In Review:
 
March...was interesting! Full of long hours in the studio and lots of cold days. However, we have been able to get outside a few times this month and Theo absolutely LOVES the outdoors. He definitely is a nature-loving boy and turning into quite the people person. We love seeing him grow and it makes us so thankful to be able to work from home and spend these precious moments together as a family. So yet again, thank you for your support of our business and allowing us not only the freedom to create, but the freedom to make time for our family. The next few months are going to be busy for us! We have a fun little anniversary trip planned (we celebrated 4 years on the 29th of March!), Rhys actually doesn't know where we are headed yet...it's a surprise! Then we will begin the house hunting process as we begin planning our move back to Colorado. A fun fact: I grew up in Colorado and that's actually where Rhys and I met! It has been a pipe-dream to get back to Colorado and the fact that we are able to that so soon is nothing short of incredible. We'll keep you all updated as it probably won't be until the end of summer when we move, but exciting things are on the way!

Ps. These are all the projects I am taking with us on vacation and truly I don't think I'm going to even make a dent in my making plans, but I never leave my knitting at home!

April Happenings


The shop will remain open while we are away on our anniversary trip! All orders placed on or before April 5 will ship before we leave, any order placed after this date will resume shipping on April 16.

April 25: UPDATE: All About Those Socks - Restock of favorite sock sets along with new sock sets and a brand NEW mini skein set! 

We are always looking for ways to improve our updates and we realized we had been focusing so much on garment knitting, our sock crew was getting left in the dust! But not anymore! The last update of every month we will be focusing on all the sock knitting projects! We will be having tons of fun sock sets and mini skein sets in one of our favorite sock bases - 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon!

 

Woolberry Wardrobe

The idea behind Woolberry Wardrobe is to create timeless garments that will be staples in your wardrobe. Items you will reach for everyday. And items that make you feel truly beautiful. 
April's Box will feature the Woolberry Wrap by Jennifer Peck (Webster Street Knittery)

There will be two box options:

1. Essential Box: Includes yarn to create the garment and a pattern info card.
2. Complete Box: Essential box PLUS Woolberry-Exclusive stitch markers, darning needle, Lavender + Magnolia wool wash, Hand-Roasted Single-Origin Coffee, "Me Made" garment labels by Kylie and The Machine. AND a Woolberry Candle - Grapefruit + Vanilla 100% All-Natural and Organic Beeswax.

All items have been hand-selected by us to ensure the perfect knitting experience. Each month there will be a special curated item included in the box that has been hand-selected by us. Our curated item for this month is our in-house made Grapefruit + Vanilla 100% All-Natural and Organic Beeswax. Our candles are hand-poured by us using 100% organic beeswax along with a blend of 100% therapeutic-grade essential oils specially mixed for this candle. Wonder what it will smell like? Think a warming yet sweet creamsicle with just a touch more tart. It's refreshing, warming, healing, and reminds me of sitting on the porch on a spring morning smelling the citrus trees while I drink a vanilla latte. (This is only in my dreams, but one day!)

All sizes will be available on a dyed-to-order basis. Keep an eye out on Instagram to see the official reveal of the Essential and Complete Boxes including what colorways will be available. 

*Pattern is not included in the boxes so that the designers receive 100% compensation for their hard work.
 

Self-Care Challenge

I thought for April we should do something outdoors...I have been craving as much Vitamin D and fresh air as possible. Major cabin fever over here. So my challenge to you is to try and spend a whole day (or as much as the day as you can fit into your schedule!) outside on the weekend! I like to call it the #vitaminDchallenge  - grab your knitting/crocheting/embroidery/needle punching/etc!, pack a picnic, grab your family, friends, neighbors, or just yourself and head out on an adventure. Visit a new state park or find a local hidden gem. Whatever you decide to do, just make sure that sunshine is involved! Get that skin soaked up in the sun. 

Until next time,

Bethany and the Woolberry Family
