Really big news you should read!

2016 is going to be a big year for Happy Fuzzy Yarn. It’s going to be our 10th anniversary. It’s going to be the year we get our 100th store.

And it’s going to be the year we stop selling online.

What?!

It’s true. It’s time.

Our online retail sales are very low, and maintaining the store is very time-consuming. Nearly all of our income comes from wholesale, and some LYS owners will not buy from dyers who sell online, so our income will actually go up if we stop selling online.

We will continue selling retail at shows, but Friday, January 15, 2016 will be the last day for you to order online.

But we want to make sure you can still buy Happy Fuzzy Yarn! Here’s what you can do:

  • Take a look at our store locator map. Are you near one of these stores? Patronize them, keep them in business, buy Happy Fuzzy Yarn there! The more you buy, the sooner they’ll order more!
  • Nowhere near any of these stores? Go to your favorite LYS and tell them you’d really like them to stock Happy Fuzzy Yarn. If you have any Happy Fuzzy Yarn or fiber, or anything you’ve made with our yarn or fiber, show it to the owner so they can see how nice it is! Be sure to let them know we aren’t selling online anymore after 1/15/16. They can contact us at wholesale at happyfuzzyyarn dot com.
  • Nowhere near any yarn stores? Contact your favorite online yarn retailer and tell them you’d really like them to carry Happy Fuzzy Yarn. Tell them they can contact us at wholesale at happyfuzzyyarn dot com and we will send them samples.

We don’t want to abandon you! We want to make it easy for you continue to buy our yarn and fiber. Doing this will allow us to grow, and have our yarn and fiber easier for you to find where you can see it in person and pet it and fondle it!

If you have a gift certificate, please redeem it by January 15, 2016 (if that’s not possible, we’ll work something out, but it will be so much easier if you redeem it by then!).

All clearance items are now at least 75% off.

Our patterns will continue to be available on Ravelry.

My handspun yarn will only be available at shows.

If you have any questions I haven’t answered, please leave a comment!

    […] the online sales, the wholesale income I would gain would exceed the retail income lost. So I made an announcement that Jan. 15 will be the last day for online retail orders. Woot!” Congrats, […]
