July-Sept Fiber Club Info

It’s almost time to sign up for the second installment of the Dyeabolical fiber club! 
 
This second club will be a little bit different than the first one. The main differences are:
¨      There are 3 braids instead of a batt, bump and braid
¨      The club has a color theme. This gives people an idea (sort of) what to expect colorwise and gives me a framework to work within.
¨      The club will not be listed on Etsy.
¨      Keep reading for details! 

Returning fiber club members can reserve their spot until May 31. Returning members, please check your emails for more details.  

The remaining spots will open to new fiber club members on June 1 and will be for sale at:  http://dyeabolical.bigcartel.com/product/new-club-members-4oz and http://dyeabolical.bigcartel.com/product/new-club-memers-8oz-option [If you want 8oz, please purchase TWO 4oz clubs. I will refund the extra $ to you.] Please note, these listings are not in my usual etsy shop. I am testing out new shopping cart software with this club. Please do not bookmark this new site as it may not be active once your purchase is complete.

Wait listing: Please email me at dyeabolicalyarns@gmail.com after June 1 if you were not able to get in to this club and would like to be waitlisted for a future club. I will not add anyone to the waitlist before the spots are sold out.

The cost is $65 for a 4oz option and $120 for an 8oz option, which includes shipping to the US and Canada. International residents, please add an additional $12 for shipping. Missouri residents are subject to sales tax.

You will receive a 4oz or 8oz braid once a month in July, August and September for a total of 3 shipments. The shipments will be mailed before the end of each month. There are no guaranteed extras. This is to keep prices as low as possible. You are paying for just the fiber and shipping. I may, however, include vendor samples or small fun trinkets from time to time in your package. These are included at no cost to you. Each shipment will arrive in a tyvek envelope mailed first class.

The fibers may include merino (superwash or non-sw), bfl (sw or non-sw), Falkland, polwarth, wool/silk blends, corriedale (sw or non), wool/viscose blends (tencel, rayon from bamboo, etc), Finn, wool/cellulose blends (flax, bast bamboo) or any other similar quality fiber. 

This club will have a color theme—Variations on a Pink. What constitutes pink? Red watered down to almost nothing? Baby pink? Toy aisle pink? Well, yes, but pink is so much more. It can be anywhere from the palest petal pink to deep vivid magenta and all the colors in between. If you think you’re not a “pink person” then think again. These club selections will be vibrant, bright, variegated, saturated and paired up with unexpected color combinations. Note: There will be some element of pink in every braid, but pink may not be the dominant color in every braid.

Each color will be exclusive for 3 months.

Please email if you need extras. Sometimes I have extras or possibly dye more. 

 Here are Wikipedia’s shades of pink color card for examples of pinks I may use: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Shades_of_pink
