Yarn that is a kindred spirit.
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 February.
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

Details on how the subscription is charged on the second tab (above).
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 we are 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 color is rich and complex, shifting in changes of light, much as the leaves shift their shade of green in the sunlight. And it’s oh so squishy. I can’t wait to wear the socks I’m going to knit with it.
This is just the shade of green you imagine on PEI in summer long ago. I'm going to start Laine's 52 Weeks of Socks with it.
I have had other subscription boxes from Anne and she never disappoints. It's the same with this one! Lovely!
I've enjoyed reading Anne of Green Gables and watching Anne with an E, so I decided to try out this club. I'm so glad I did! The colors are beautiful, and the patterns are wonderful. I love how carefully thought out these sets are.
The second Kindred Spirits sock box was such a treat - the yarn colors were a surprise, but Anne's lovely description of the inspiration is spot on. The snowflake progress marker is a perfect match for one of my favorite sets of Little Skein stitch markers and the card is beautiful. I enjoyed the addition of a pattern with this box and the mitts are knitting up very nicely. Little Skein's house sock is my absolute favorite for sock making - it knits up denser than most other sock weight yarns and takes color really well.
