DEC2016Update

This year, the Tour de Fleece starts on Saturday July 2nd and runs until Sunday July 24th. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Tour de Fleece  –  guidelines can be found on the  Ravelry Forum.

The “rules” – more like “guidelines” are simple:

1) Spin every day the Tour rides, if possible. Saturday July 2 through Sunday July 24th. Days of rest: Monday, July 11th and Tuesday, July 19th. (Just like the actual tour.)

2) Spin something challenging on the challenge days (usually the toughest high mountain stage: this year, it’s Stage 8, on Saturday, July 9th, when they will climb 4 mountains, including the 2115m high Col du Tourmalet, and Stage 15, on Sunday, July 17th, when they take on the Grand Columbier!

3) Wear yellow on Sunday July 24th to announce victory. Why not wear yellow on any day you feel particularly successful? (Yellow is the color of the race leader in the Tour – but here we are all ‘race leaders’) Other colors if desired: Green (sprinter – think FAST), Polka-dot (climber – as in uphill), and white (rookie).

As we have in the past, ITW is hosting our own ‘Wildcard’ team and thanks to our amazing team captains, all the details and a registration link can be found here! Our “rules” are simple, we have some amazing cheerleaders, and there are prizes, what more could you ask for?!

For those of you would would like to wear some ITW “team colors” during the tour, please feel free to grab a TDF Team ITW Ravitar:

NOV-JAN

Can you believe it is time for another round of the Drumcarded Batt Club?! It is, and listings are LIVE! We are offering both a Single Dose and a Double Dose subscription options thought the Into the Whirled online shop.  In a nutshell, the new club is almost exactly the same as our current Club offerings except for two crucial differences.

The first:
Unlike our monthly Club subscriptions, the Drumcarded Batt Club runs in three month cycles and is packaged as a single item to be pre-purchased at the time the listings are activated.

The second:
Unlike our current Club offerings, the fiber featured will be the same throughout the three month cycle. For our third run of the Batt Club we will be featuring Falkland Wool for all three months.

Please note that there will be an extremely limited number of memberships offered and it is possible for them to sell out. Please do not wait until the last minute to place your order.
