OINK PIGMENTS, CRE8TION CROCHET, AND FURLS FIBERARTS ARE SO EXCITED TO BE WORKING TOGETHER ON THIS NEW PROJECT, BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.
Our shawl doesn't have a name, it's sad... it needs to be made happy again by getting named by one of our fans.Read More
We've just posted a TON of new listings in our Ready-to-Ship Shop. What's that mean?

Here are just a few tasty morsels of the feast that awaits...Read More
We at Oink Pigments have an exciting opportunity to do something we have never done before: we are taking our yarn on the road! This little piggy (that's Helena) is filling her car with yarn and going on a great road trip adventure, from San Diego to Indianapolis.Read More
Two gorgeous new Spring colors, three delightful patterns, and some upcoming events that are not-to-be-missed!Read More
Many long hours in the dye studio concocting a series of visions and combining them with a series of happy accidents yielded a delightful palette of new colors. None of these are anywhere near Pantone's picks for 2016's "colors of the year" but we adore them, and we hope you will too. And next is an extra special treat that we've been dreaming about for ages, and we're beyond thrilled to finally be able to make it happen...Read More
The holidays are in full swing, which means that the busy Fall yarn festival season has come and gone. There are only five shopping days left until Christmas, if you count today and Christmas Eve, which is when all the real celebrating happens in my family. At Oink Pigments, we are knee deep in executing our plans for TNNA and Stitches West. Unfortunately our approach to yarn show preparations mirrors that of the Christmas knitting schedule -- we always seem to think there are more hours in the day or days in the week than there actually are.Read More
Over the weekend we tabulated all the entries, rated and randomized our selections, and we're thrilled to announce the winners! Prizes will ship early next week. If you are listed as a winner below, no need to take any action, aside from waiting patiently beside your mailbox.
Without further ado...Read More
Here it is...the great unveiling! Winners to be announced sometime next weekend, but there's only wee bit of time left to enter (entry deadline is 8/31/15 at 11:59pm). Please see the original post for the full list of fine print/rules/details/etc.Read More

Another shiny new thing that debuted at TNNA: Oink Pigments Scarf. This is a 100% Habotai Silk Circle Scarf which we hand dye as if it were a skein of yarn to match each of our existing colorways. These are an awesome accessory by themselves, and we think they're EXTRA fabulous when paired with a matching or complementary yarn.Read More
