The Beatrix box subscription (pay as you go)


  • "There is something delicious about writing the first words of a story. You never quite know where they'll take you."

    —Beatrix Potter

    We all know Beatrix Potter as the creator of Peter Rabbit and wee beautiful children's books. But there is a deeper story to Beatrix and her illustrations. Beatrix forged her way in a male-dominated Victorian world to have a career on her own terms and to immerse herself in the things that brought her joy.

    I am taking inspiration from Beatrix's life and art to create boxes of knitterly joy for you, and I cordially invite you to join me.

    A SUBSCRIPTION UNLIKE ANY OTHER

    The Beatrix Box arrives to your home every three months, and it has a pattern created by a guest designer, two skeins of gorgeous hand-dyed yarn, plus an artist-made surprise. But, the box is so much more than this.

    My subscription box brings to life the values and artistic quality you've come to expect from Little Skein. It is a present to yourself, a delight to open, and fuels your knitting with inspiration and good feelings.

    WHAT YOU RECEIVE

    Tab 2 (above) tells you specifically what's in each box, but what your subscription truly includes is:

    The perfect blend of choice and surprise: I create multiple colorways for each box, and you choose which one(s) you want. This way, you always receive a color that thrills you. Each box has a different yarn base, from fingering weight to DK.

    Beauty that is everlasting: You may receive a new or a refreshed pattern—a different way of working that brings to life our shared values around slow, intentional and beautiful making.

    Joy that we celebrate together: Each box is centered around the idea of joy and making one's own place in the world. If you dive into the work and ethos of each maker involved, you will see a group of amazing women who, each in her own way, is forging a new path in the knitting community.

    I cordially invite you to join me in a world that's full of art, inspiration, beauty and a warm welcome.

    US subscribers receive shipping on the house, and international subscribers receive $10 flat rate shipping.

Another Amazing Curation from Little Skein

I have subscribing and purchasing yarn and bags from Anne for years. She/they just keep getting better and better and this box/collaboration is no exception.

Such a lovely box

I rarely do anything for myself so I was hesitant to be a subscriber, but it is worth every penny. I adored everything I received and the beautiful packaging made my day brighter. I immediately bought more yarn and have no doubt that it will be amazing when I receive it.

Thoughtful and well worth

The boxes I get so far were all packed with so much love and thoughtfulness. The imagination for bringing the bits and pieces together is oh so beautiful. The yarn qualities and colors are stunning, in richness and depth and liveliness hard to compete with. The patterns with the stories behind are so wonderful and fitting every time. I am so glad I had jumped on this wagon and I'm looking forward to the next stop in this journey. Thank you so much, Anne for this adventure! ♥♥♥

Happiness in a box!

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 !
