    Kindred Spirits yarn subscription

    Subscription type

    I'm closed to new subscribers while I prepare the February/March skein. I'll reopen subscriptions in late February. Please come back!

    A gift to future you.

    This subscription is for the knitter who loves hand-dyed yarn. It's a single skein (or more, if you're so inclined) 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 brand new, and each one is inspired by Anne of Green Gables.

    The colors are universal, though, so 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 April/May skein (which will ship in late April/early May).

    Every other month, I dye a new colorway on my most luxurious yarn base (Cashmere Blend, which has a delicious 20% cashmere content) and ship it out to subscribers. The photo gallery shows the last year's worth of colors, so you can get a sense of my dye style.

    Your package ships free-to-you in the US (and with a discount if you’re elsewhere)!

    • Free-to-you shipping on this package for US subscribers
    • $10 flat rate shipping for subscribers in Canada, Asia, Africa, Australia, Mexico, Central or South America, a savings of $6 to $10.

    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. 😁 This works out to an 18% discount for US subscribers (and an equal dollar discount if you're international to me), and it reinforces my value that we’re always in community and working toward the common good!

    I'm unable to ship to the UK or Europe at this time. Country-specific tax rules put in place during the pandemic, unfortunately, 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.

    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.

    How do I cancel? Log into your shop account, and click on "Manage Subscription." You can cancel there. If you have any trouble, just email me.
