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.
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

Shipping to subscribers is on the house!
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.
This month’s colorway is “October was a beautiful month at Green Gables” and it’s absolutely gorgeous. It’s so warm and calming, and I can’t wait to get it on my needles! It’s a very deep golden yellow with flecks of brown. Totally makes me think of fall on Prince Edward Island when I look at it.
Very beautiful! I got the darkest version. Love all your colorways!
The Whispering Birch colorway I received is a gorgeous dusty grey/lavender with just enough of a hint of taupe that I know I'll find the best project for its use soon! This was my first subscription from Anne and I look forward to receiving more in the future (although I really wish I could receive a new color every month as I'm not very good at being patient)!
The August 2020 installment of the Kindred Sprits Yarn Club is my first experience with the club and I am in love! What a lovely way to treat myself and I am so happy with the color. I've never done a surprise colorway club before but will definitely be returning for more. The yarn is so soft and was well packaged and will be waiting for just the right project inspiration!
This yarn club is such a treat, and the Whispering Birch color is a beautiful neutral to add to my stash. The olive greens, lavenders,and greys meld together into a nuanced taupe that is completely different from what I would usually pick out myself, but inspires so many ideas for projects. A wonderful way to step outside my comfort zone and spark creativity.
