As a little child, I only wanted to read books with animals, I would reject any book with people in it. Needless to say, I loved all the Beatrix Potter books and even deigned to read those with humans. When I saw that Anne had a Beatrix Potter Box series, I had to get one. I am not disappointed! The colors, Loam and Tart, that I chose are gorgeous. I will say that Anne did make it hard as all six options were gorgeous and I really struggled to choose. The wool feels beautiful in my hand and should knit up beautifully. The shea butter salve that came with it is lovely as well. It has a delicate scent that is not artificial or cloying. As I said, happiness in a box !
Anne’s colors always have such depth and this collection is no different. Looking at them in different lights and various combinations reveal the wonder in each of them. They complement each other in many combinations and offer endless possibilities. The surprise gift of healing body butter will be a pleasant reminder of the joy in this box throughout the dark days of winter.
The yarn was very squishy and soft. I am am looking forward to trying the patterns.
I've gotten both of the boxes so far, and they are fantastic! You get to choose your colors and there are fun surprises in each shipment - I highly recommend this club and can't wait for the rest of the shipments!
This is my first Beatrix box and what a treat. You know what is coming--beautiful yarn, but then the surprises make you feel cared for. Ann clearly loves what she does and sharing it with others.
