About

Monster Mayhem Hand Dyed Bulky Yarn

$1,105

16

It's been a year since I started hand dyeing yarn. I'm ready to add more yarns to my line up. I love projects that work up quickly and use delicious looking yarns to make them amazing. 

The goal of this Kickstarter is to raise money to purchase super bulky yarn. The yarn is a 80% superwash merino 20% nylon blend.  Each skein is 76yds/100gms. I'll also be using the money to buy more dyes so I can create new Monster inspired colorways.

To go along with adding this yarn to my shop, I'll be creating knitting and crochet patterns to go with this yarn. Patterns will be easy simple to whip up. 

I love working with rich colors and giving them fun names inspired by gothy geeky things. 

My goal with my hand dyed yarn is to provide colors and patterns that don't look like they were made for frumpy old ladies. I'm also a big fan of instant crafting gratification. That is why I love bulky and chunky yarns. We don't always have the time or desire to work on time consuming projects. 

Stretch Goals:

If pledge amounts go above and beyond $500 bucks, I've got other things I can shoot for.

$1000- More yarn, dyes, and tools. Each backer would also get something extra.

$1500- I can get custom Apocalypse Friday knitting needles and crochet hooks! Backers pledging $35 or more would get a pair of needles or a hook!

$2000- Apoclaypse Friday project bags! Backers pledging at $55 or above would get one! 

It's been a year since I launched Apocalypse Friday with a successful Kickstarter. It was an amazing experience and I'm so thankful for everyone who backed me. 

This new Kickstarter is a way for people to pre-order super bulky yarn and help my small homebased business grow. 

Risks and challenges

With my last Kickstarter I underestimated the time it would take to get yarn shipped out. I'm doing things differently this time. I'm giving myself more time to start shipping yarns and backers receiving more than one skein of yarn will get all their yarn at one time.

I now know how many skeins I can dye at a time. So I can plan better.

Handmade items will take more time to get shipped as I can only make one at a time.
