Yarn Club Right Now

Did I say a yarn of the month club next year? I meant yarn club right now.

I was planning on waiting to offer a sock yarn club next year, but after I introduced my fiber club a few days ago I received several messages asking where the yarn club is. Actually, I received many more messages about where the yarn club was than I did for orders for the fiber club. Oops! I'm still super duper super excited about the fiber club, but I worked out the details and started placing orders for sock yarn today. We’re making the sock club happen today.  

Thanks to all who poked me with their needles. 

Want to join the fiber club, but don’t spin? Here’s your chance! I’ve decided to offer a sock yarn of the month club!

Sign up for the Dyeabolical Sock Yarn of the Month Club and get 3 or 6 months of custom dyed sock yarn in surprise colors and surprise base each month starting in January.

Each 3 month membership is $60. Sign up for the 6 month cluband the price is only $108! [As with the fiber club, I'm selling most of the memberships through Artfire. It keeps my costs down and yours. My full inventory is still available through Etsy.]

Each month will include 100 gram hank of sock yarn dyed in a custom coloway. Club colorways will remain exclusive for 6 months. I will endeavor to match the sock club colorway to the fiber club colorway whenever practical and possible with the dyeing technique I have chosen that month.

The coloways may be semi-solid, tonally variegated, strongly variegated and may be painted using a variety of different dyeing techniques (hand painted, kettle dyed, mosaic, overdyed). You know I lean towards strong saturated variegated yarns, so please let me know if you have a strong preference for semi-solids and tonally variegated colors and I will do my best to accommodate your request.

The base yarns for the sock club may be superwash merino/nylon, superwash merino, superwash bfl or some other sock-appropriate blend. For those with a strong base preference, I am happy to dye your club selection every month on my regular sock base, Strong Arm Sock Yarn. Just drop me a note and I’ll be happy to do that for you.  

Extras will be available for purchase to club members only for 6 months while supplies of my pre-dyed stock lasts. I am happy to do custom orders of club colorways after my supply of pre-dyed sock runs out, but the minimum order will be 2 hanks if it is not a fiber I carry regularly.

Club shipments will be shipped first class in tyvek envelopes with tracking on domestic packages.
