Is Anne of Green Gables a kindred spirit for you? She is for me and so is knitting. It's the book and craft I reach for, time and again. My Kindred Spirits yarn box brings to life Anne's adventures on Prince Edward Island with a brand new colorway, every other month.
The next skein ships in OCTOBER.
Join to receive just one surprise skein or subscribe to receive every new Anne of Green Gables-inspired colorway I create. The photo gallery shows the last year's worth of colors, so you can get a sense of my dye style.
Club skeins are dyed on my Smooth Sock base, which is a beautiful, plump and color-loving merino/nylon blend:
80% superwash merino, 20% nylon
400 yards | 115g
3-ply construction for plush fabric and optimum stitch definition
If you want more than one skein, just sign up for multiple subscriptions.
Details on how the subscription is charged on the second tab (above).
Shipping to US subscribers is on the house, and the worldwide subscribers receive $10 flat rate shipping.
Subscribers are billed once every two months, and you can cancel at any time. If you leave your subscription in place, you'll get ongoing and wonderful yarn as long as I am dyeing new colorways!
Yarn ships in February, April, June, August, October and December.
You are billed for your subscription when you sign up and, thereafter, on the 15th of these months: January, March, May, July, September, and November.* Your box ships about a month after you're billed for it, and we will email you with a heads-up about a week before it ships so you know when to expect it.
Because this is an ongoing subscription, payment is by direct credit card only (processed through the super-secure Stripe service). Unfortunately, we aren't able to accept PayPal for subscriptions at this time.
If you ever want to cancel your subscription, just cancel by the 15th of the month before your yarn ships.
I call my style of hand-dyeing watercolor speckles. Each skein has multiple layers of color that blend, shift and merge, with intentional wee tiny random dots of intense color. When dyeing, I focus on what the final fabric will look like. My goal is a fabric that may look semi-solid from a distance but, when viewed closely, shows a depth of subtle color differences.
There will be variations in color intensity and placement. I think that’s part of what makes each skein perfect – they’re not identical. If you will be using more than 1 skein in your project, alternate skeins to blend any color differences.
The Kindred Spirits yarn club makes me so happy! The yarn is absolutely beautiful and inspiring. I have loved everything Anne of Green Gables for as long as I can remember. If I had to choose only one yarn subscription for the rest of my life it would be this one!
The semi-monthly skein I just received is scrumptious. It's a blue-grey tonal mix in such a soft merino. It will be perfect for my shawl making!
I love all of Anne's colors. And since I can never decide, I decided to treat myself to a mystery!
This is my first yarn subscription I have bought so I was so excited to get my first one. The yarn is a beautiful tonal color with some wisps of other colors in the skein as well. Looking forward to my next one!
The yarn is beautiful and made of my favourite combination. I loved Anne of Green Gables growing up and the colours brought back memories of the vibrant colours of PEI and the show. The colour reminded me of the hats and flowers that were used 😀
