Little Swift, Solaris, Halcyon, TOM BIHN knitting

Our Knitting Goods Pre-order will be open from Tuesday 2/22 7:00am PST until Tuesday 3/1 at 3:00pm PST* and have an estimated shipping date of late April. Want to see everything that'll be available for pre-order in one spot? Visit the Knitting Goods Collection

Here is the full list of designs that will be available for pre-order:


Swift in Original 400 Halcyon/Solaris 200

Medium Clear Bottom Yarn Stuff Sack in Ultraviolet 200

New to pre-orders?

They work like this: you order it, we sew it in Seattle. You can cancel your pre-order or change the shipping address up until three days before it ships. Check out our Pre-Order FAQ or ask in the comments (you'll be notified via email when we respond!)

You're welcome to order in-stock bags and restocked bags along with your pre-order. You can also place additional orders and add bags to your held pre-order up until a few days before it ships (we'll send you an email heads-up about that!). Our default is to hold those bags and ship them with your pre-order once it's ready. If you'd like the in-stock bags to ship sooner, either place a separate order for those or, once the order is placed, log in to your TOM BIHN account to choose to have in-stock items shipped right away.

Already have a pre-order in place for the Yeoman or Le Petit Derriere? You're welcome to add any of the Knitted Goods pre-order items to your existing pre-order. We will ship everything to you in one shipment once all pre-order items are ready.


*Back in January, we mentioned that we may have to set pre-order limits on certain 200d Halcyon colors, due to a delay in receiving Halcyon shipments. Well, believe it or not, this same shipment of Halcyon that we originally anticipated to receive back in December is still waiting to be released from the port! There are also more shipments of Halcyon on the way from Japan, but the timeline to getting them to the factory is unclear. We are hopeful that the supply chain slowdowns will resolve themselves and that our Halcyon supply will be steady again soon enough. Until then, we will be monitoring sales closely. In the event that we believe we have sold the maximum for a color, we will have to close the pre-order early for that specific color. 

**You might be wondering why our Tall Yarn Stuff Sack did not make it into the pre-order. Tall Yarn Stuff Sacks use quite a lot of Halcyon for a Stuff Sack; we decided we need to err on the side of caution and conserve the Halcyon we have onsite so we're able to make the Swift, Little Swift, Small and Medium Yarn Stuff Sacks, and all of the other designs we make on a regular basis as well.  Once our supply of Halcyon is steady again, we hope to offer the Tall Yarn Stuff Sack... hopefully late this year? We'll see!

Super excited about the return of the little swift!! Was hoping for more UV, any chance of a navy option in the future or are you thinking the preorder will be the last run of these for a while?
TOM BIHN replied:
Hi Cindy! So glad you’re excited about the return of the Little Swift! We
don’t have any plans at the moment to do another rerun of the knitting
goods after this pre-order.

I’ve been waiting for the All Fabric 3D Organizer Cube for forever. And now it’ll be offered in the fantastic Moab color? I’ll be ALL OVER THAT come pre-order day! Thanks a million times for offering these high(est) quality things in such attractive colors and fabrics.
TOM BIHN replied:
Hi Laura! So glad to hear you like the color offerings. We’re super excited
to have Moab in the line-up as well!

This is awesome! I love seeing the taiga/moab combo too!
TOM BIHN replied:
So glad to hear that! We love the Taiga / Moab combo a lot!

Shep Bostin - February 15, 2022

Even though I am not a knitter, I am excited for a few of these items that have other uses as well. Question: Are the slots in the new version of the tool/pen wrap any larger than the ones in the original tool/pen wrap? I have been hoping the new wrap would be better for carrying thicker markers.
TOM BIHN replied:
Hi Shep! Thank you! We’ve also found the Swift, Little Swift, and all the
accessories helpful for so much beyond just knitting purposes. The slots in
the tool / pen wrap are the same as in the original version.
