About

Gradient Hand-spun
Gradient Hand-spun

My purpose:

My purpose for this Kickstarter is to grow my yarn business and offer additional hand-crafted items.  I want to start a line of naturally dyed yarns, purchase some much needed equipment to increase production while decreasing production time, and to also offer all natural skin care items mainly focusing on salt/sugar scrubs and lip/body balms.  Why the skin care line?  Because your skin should be as soft as the hand-knits you put on!

Where will your pledge money go?:

I will use the funds for a massive wholesale order of yarn & fiber from my supplier which will enable me to offer new breeds and also purchase the required ingredients to offer naturally dyed yarns & fiber. It will also allow me to  purchase motorized skein winding equipment to help cut my production time by at least 50%. Less production time would enable me to have more frequent shop updates.

Funds from this Kickstarter will also go towards the purchase of natural & organic ingredients to be used in my natural skin care line.

Lastly, any remaining funds will be used for product branding, packaging, a fully integrated e-commerce website/blog, an addi knitting machine, a small drum-carder, commercial dye pots, additional drying racks, crockpots, hot plates, and utensils.

Risks and challenges

Currently, I am working on a wholesale order for a LYS which I'm working hard to have completed prior to the end of this Kickstarter. I am mainly monogamous with my major projects which is why I have put off updating my inventory in my Etsy shop for the time being.

I also work full time and am a mom and wife. So like anyone else, days can be challenging. Nonetheless, I am a person of my word and always put my customer first. I don't anticipate there being any issues or setbacks as I am that crazy person who has spent 8 hours (and will do again if necessary) un-knotting a single skein of yarn until 4 am. Integrity and my word mean everything to me!!
