An Announcement, & More Merino Sock Goodness!!

** PLEASE NOTE: As you may or may not be aware of, as of Midnight, Thursday June 2, the employees of Canada Post have voted to go on strike, disrupting mail service across Canada in specific cities one at a time via rotating strikes (so far, Winnipeg, and tomorrow, Hamilton). As a result, and we at indigodragonfly do apologize in advance, there may be delays in shipping, as Canada Post is our main shipper. Contract negotiations between the Canada Post Employees Union and the Federal Government are ongoing, and hopefully the situation will be resolved quickly and painlessly (the last time there was a postal strike in Canada, it was 11 years ago and lasted only two weeks before the Federal Government legislated everyone back to work). As of noon Friday June 3, Canada Post management says operations are pretty much business as usual, and the word from our local post office is that they’re open for business and processing mail, with only the towns affected by the rotating strikes having their mail being delayed a day or two. Should the strike expand country-wide and/or parcel shipping becomes time-sensitive, we will obviously explore the route of courier services, passenger pigeons, highly-motivated racing bunnies, hamsters on amphetamines (equipped with GPS devices and the tiniest, cutest saddle bags!), well-bribed yarn mules – whatever works – in order to get the sqooshy goodness out to you, the public!

So once again, we do apologize in advance for any delays, but please sit tight, go about your regular perusal/daydreaming about/ordering of the pretty pretty yarn, and we will get it out to you! And as with all regular orders, we’ll work out the shipping situation by email on a per order basis so that everyone is clear on the status of their orders.

Thank You for your Courage, Patience & Grit,

Kim & Ron (apparently Otis is off building a yarn fort…)

**Postscript: at 2 pm today, we received our regular mail delivery, so things are so far looking good!

There, now that that business has been addressed, it’s time to address the second piece of business on today’s agenda: a new slew o’ Merino Sock!

Some brand spankin’ new colourways, some old favourites, and the odd colourway that hasn’t been available in the Merino Sock base, until now!

And for one special person out there, we are premiering a special colourway in your honour! Once you see it, you’ll know where the name came from…🙂

So here we go – Enjoy! And remember, if a colourway is Sold Out, you can email us at: orders@indigodragonfly.ca , and we can let you know if its a repeatable colourway and if we can make more!

***************************************************************************

Email orders AT indigodragonfly.ca to place all orders.  Let us know: 1)  what you would like to purchase, 2) where you live (state/province/country), and 3) whether you would like us to wind your yarn into cakes (charge of $1 per skein with proceeds going to our Otis Houndation).  A PayPal invoice will be mailed to you that includes airmail shipping (or surface mail if you’re in Ontario).  For further information, see the bottom of this post.

To purchase any of the above yarn, please send me an email at orders AT indigodragonfly.ca (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which colours(s) you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days (pending postal strike). Canada Post shipping charges to the US start at $5.44 for surface mail and $7.70 for air mail. Shipping charges for courier shipments to be determined at point of shipping. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval. Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders (including dyeing or overdyeing your own fibre or yarn) are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.
