2017 was a VERY BUSY year for Round Mountain Fibers! Here are a few highlights:
The New Studio!
We were quickly outgrowing our little studio, and desperately needed running water for the winter months. So we launched our Kickstarter campaign in late spring to help fund the move to a new, larger studio with running water! We raised $13,526 from 290 wonderful backers, who purchased our Kickstarter colorways to help fund this project. We’re still working on getting settled in the new studio, and no doubt will be rearranging the furniture for a while to come!
NEW: Botany and Entomology Collections:
We launched our new Botany and Entomology collections in time for the Summer TNNA show in Columbus, Ohio, adding 6 new colorways and 8 coordinating semisolids to each of these new collections, as well as added 3 new CLUB offerings:
2017 was the year of the club subscription! Here are all the gorgeous club offerings from all three collections. They were very well received, and we really enjoyed making new colors every month!
We continued to offer pattern suggestions through Facebook, and made those pattern suggestions searchable with hashtags #RMFfingering etc. To search our suggestions, see the post pinned to the top of our FB page!
Here are a few examples of gorgeous garments knit up in our yarns in 2017:
Trunk Show and collaboration with Jennifer Kirchenbauer:
We discovered the work of the incredibly talented Jennifer Kirchenbauer, who designed a series of really fun, elegant, and unique garments to showcase our yarns! Her garments are currently on tour with the Round Mountain Fibers Trunk show, and have made an appearance at Vogue Knitting live, Seattle, as well as Vogue Knitting Live, NYC! We are super excited about her work, and are offering kits through our LYSs, as well as our International Outlet Store.

We Launched our International Outlet Store!
As a wholesale business, our priority has always been our relationship with our Local Yarn Shops, as they are the reason we’re in business! However, we did need an outlet for our seconds and one-of-a-kind experimental colorways. So we launched our Seconds Store through www.roundmountainfibers.com. We discovered that we had a significant fan base in Canada, and after being in touch with several Canadian LYSs we realized that the exchange rate and cost of importing made the sale of our yarns prohibitive for Canadian shops. So we decided to launch our International Outlet Store, at www.roundmountainfibers.biz so that we could offer all of our products to our international fans. We’re super excited about this venture, and look forward to shipping our yarn all over the world. So far, we’ve shipped to countries far and wide, including Australia, Vietnam and Germany!
New for 2018!
We are super excited about our NEW Pooling Semisolids for 2018! These are yet another monthly club option available to our LYSs (and to our international customers)! Pooling Semisolids have a greater range of shades in each skein, for a more nuanced semisolid, with pools of color throughout:
We had lots of giveaways this year and look forward to many more in 2018! Here are a few examples of the beautiful yarn we gave away this year!
