Carol Feller Knitalong in Cumulus

We are very excited to be working with Carol Feller on her yearly knit along which this year is using Cumulus.

What's the advantage as a yarn shop to take part in this?

1. We are offering a incentive to stock Cumulus for this knit along
2. You can preorder exactly what you need for the signups you have got.
3. The knit along is fully supported by Carol, and you get a kit of materials to use in your shop to help the knit along.
4. Its a great way to try a new yarn and for your customers to knit something beautiful at a great price.
5. Carol will list you as a potential stockist when you sign up.

This beautiful sweater  is very economical in the yarn quantities, and gives you as a shop owner an opportunity to try Cumulus if you haven't tried it before.

This is the first time Carol is working alongside yarn shops for one of her hugely popular knit-alongs, and we are really pleased to be part of it.

How does it work for you as a yarn shop?
Carol has been running her highly popular sweater knit-alongs  (KALs) for several years, giving knitter’s the tools they need to produce a fantastic looking sweater. Carol’s KALs are a wonderful way to learn new skills, make new knitting friends, and support your business in growing an engaged community of knitters. 

To begin with the KAL is put on pre-sale a month before the first clue to allow knitters to gather their yarn and swatch. This is an opportunity for you to join the excitement and offer your knitters something exciting to work on together. When you sign up as an official retailer, you will receive a number of codes for the digital version of the pattern (at a wholesale price) that you can sell to your customers. We (Fyberspates) supply you with recommended yarn Cumulus, please email us for more details on fyberspates @  

Then the KAL consists of as a series of 4 clues, with one released every 2 weeks. Each clue contains the next part of the pattern, a section on modification tips, and links to online tutorials for any tricky sections. This material will be available to share on your own channels such as Facebook and Carol will be sending a retailers newsletter to help you support customers with each clue and find materials you might need.
