What Is a Feral Knitter?In 2003 I was setting up a Fair Isle color study sub-group of the Seattle Knitters Guild. A non-knitting friend, overhearing the discussion, asked me, apprehension thick in her voice, "Janine, WHAT is a feral knitter?" The name stuck. A feral knitter is someone who loves color knitting, playing with color combinations and garment shapes, and learning about construction and fit.

Feral Knitter Yarn Shop Closing
It’s been clear to me for a while that my teaching and travel schedule are at odds with my ability to process orders promptly and correctly. After a lot of thought about what I want to do, what I’m best at, and what my long-term goals are I have decided to close the yarn side of Feral Knitter on April 13th. Please be patient! It’s taking me a long time to fill orders as I scramble to make mini skeins as needed and to work around the backordered colors.
- I am now drawing down my inventory, and I won’t be restocking to fill orders. I will try to keep the website updated.
- Many colors are now on backorder from the mill! Any orders that include backordered colors will be filled when I receive the yarn, no matter when that is. I will notify you right away if your yarn is backordered—I won’t be able to offer refunds after March 16th.
- Returns accepted for credit until April 1st.
- And the virtual doors will close on April 13th.
I feel a great deal of gratitude to all my customers! You’ll still be hearing from me, as I use the newly freed time to design more patterns, develop new classes, and (perhaps) write another book.
Enjoy your knitting!
