Sort by EITHER Fiber OR Color on

Originally published on April 26, 2013

We’ve played around with a few different ways of sorting the swatches we have available on for you to use in designing your own yarn.

When we first launched the site, everything was sorted by color, so that if, say, you knew you wanted to make a shawl in shades of purple, you knew exactly where to look to find the tones you were looking for, and tweak the fibers until you came up with your dream combo.

A few months back, I realized I was doing a lot of email consultations with customers who were primarily seeking yarn of a certain fiber, and less invested in what colors were involved (as long as they were gorgeous!). So we switched things up and instead gave you the option to choose your yarn based on fiber first, color second. But the fact of the matter is, everyone has different wants in a yarn, different priorities, and we want to make sure it’s easy for you to find exactly what you want. So now I present to you…the benefit of choice!

When you first enter the Custom Yarn Creator, you decide how you’d like to see our yarns sorted. Which is most important to you? Click on the corresponding button, and the world is your oyster. The only catch — you can’t change your mind halfway through. If you’ve got a few swatches in your palette and then you click one of these buttons to toggle over, your swatches will clear and the page will reload. We hope you enjoy this new feature! Head on over and play around with it for yourself!
