    Subscription type

    A gift to future you. A gift for the special knitter in your life.

    This subscription is for the knitter who loves hand-dyed yarn. It's a single skein (or more, if you're so inclined) of a brand-new, surprise colorway.

    Use it for color play, for pushing your color boundaries, for inspiring your creativity, for squishing, and for wanting to cast on as soon as it arrives.

    Each colorway is inspired by Anne of Green Gables. Whether you're a true fan of the book series or movies (original or Netflix remake) or simply want the prettiest yarn subscription you can find, this yarn is the one you will reach for, again and again, when knitting from stash.

    My colorways are complex, layered, and gently speckled to create a yarn that is a delight to knit with. When knitted, the fabric will look semi-solid from a distance and, up close, it contains a multitude of shades and tones, sometimes from stitch to stitch.

    Your subscription starts with the August/September skein (which will ship in late August/early September).

    You get:

    • A new skein of yarn, every other month
    • Hand-dyed on my most luxurious yarn base: Cashmere Blend, which has a delicious 20% cashmere content
    • Free-to-you shipping, which gives you a $6 discount
    • The option to order more if you ever fall in love with a color and want to make a bigger project
    • Ideas and inspiration on what to do with your skein

    See the pictures of the last year's worth of club skeins to get an idea of my dye style.

    Why I pay for your shipping

    Subscriptions are a cornerstone of my business, and this stability means I’m able to pay for your shipping and still earn a living wage. 😁

    You get ~$6 off your order by paying for the yarn only. (I pay 100% of shipping for US subscribers, and offer $10 flat rate for international subscribers.) This pricing structure reinforces my value that we’re always in community and working toward the common good!

    Note: I'm unable to ship to the UK or Europe at this time. Country-specific tax rules are not workable for me as a solo person business.

    💳 Subscription billing

    Subscribers are billed once every two months. You can cancel at any time, but if you leave your subscription in place, you'll get ongoing and wonderful yarn as long as I am dyeing new colorways!

    Your first charge happens when you sign up and, thereafter, on the 15th of these months: January, March, May, July, September, and November.

    ℹ️ FAQs

    When does the club ship? At the end of the month (or first week of the following month) in February, April, June, August, October, and December.

    What if I don't like the color? This blog post has ideas on what to do with a single skein, especially if the color isn't in your wheelhouse. The yarn club is a surprise, though, so if you don't like surprises, it's probably not a good idea to subscribe. That said, if you're ever truly disappointed by a colorway, my regular return policy applies: If you return your yarn within 30 days, I'm glad to give you a store credit.

    When do I pay for the yarn club? You're charged for the first shipment when you sign up, and thereafter on the 15th of January, March, May, July, September, and November. It works out so that you are usually charged for the next skein right after a club shipment arrives.
