This year, the Yarn Discovery Tour is being conducted a little differently. Many shops are participating in a virtual capacity, including Gwen Erin Natural Fibers. What does this mean for you? As a shopper, you can make a purchase online through this website, call to purchase over the phone, or schedule an appointment to shop in person.
For quick and easy shopping, pick one of the YDT Kits! These kits include the Tour pattern and the yarn needed to make that project. Each kit features one of my micro-batch handdyed yarns for a truly unique project. You can choose between Enid or Eleri (DK weight yarn) for the knitting pattern or Olwyn (fingering weight yarn) for the crochet pattern. Purchasing one of these "kits" covers the minimum needed to receive all the extra goodies. To buy a "kit", just select which color yarn you want of the above suggested yarns - both patterns use a single skein of yarn!
During the Tour there will be a flat-rate shipping fee of $5.00, so keep an eye on your shipping options at check out. Select "curbside pick-up" if you prefer to swing by and have your order brought out to your car.
Still in need of a passport? Add it to your order!
At check-out, please include your Passport Number in the NOTES box. If you are purchasing something other than a YDT Kit, indicate which pattern you would like to receive: knit or crochet and if you want it sent digitally or paper copy. If no preference is given, you will receive a paper copy of the knit pattern.
1) You must wear a mask while inside the shop
2) You must use the hand sanitizer at the front door before touching any products
3) There is no public restroom
Regardless of how you shop, any purchase over $10 allows you to receive the special Tour items. This includes a sticker for your passport, an exclusive stitch marker, a free pattern (knit or crochet), and entry into our prize basket valued at $100.
