New OMG Yarn and Colors Available for Pre-Order

I announced the newest round of colors yesterday for the Fall/Winter 2014 line that we are currently raising money for. Don’t forget, the only way we can do our full line expansion is if we fund our Indiegogo campaign.

The only way to get limited edition yarn and pre-order from this new line is through the Indiegogo Campaign. Once we are funded, the yarn will be ordered and the dyeing will begin. People will be able to choose the yarn and colors they want. And share the link or consider contributing and give the yarn as a gift to the fiber lover in your life.

Supporting OMG means supporting American Made products and a local small business. I love what I do and would not trade it for anything in the world.

Meeting our goal means new yarn in our shop and the opportunity to wholesale our yarn to stores across the country. It also means fewer fees from the crowdfunding campaign (up to $900 could go to crowdfunding fees alone and will decrease to less than half that if we meet or surpass our goal).
