You are reading the listing for a 3-Month Yarn Subscription, in Naturally Dyed Fiber
Photos in the listing are for yarns shipped in the last couple of months. You will receive different yarns, that may look similar to these.
Three subscriptions are available: $250/yr, $125/6 months, $75/3 months
Two options are available: Natural (undyed) fiber, Naturally dyed fiber
The Naturally Dyed Option: Being a painter, I draw inspiration from great artists. The Naturally Dyed yarns will be themed by schools of painting. In 2015, I designed an Impressionist line. 2016 will feature an Expressionist line, but to begin the year = how could I not plan a line based on the Fauves? The theme will be kept secret until after the yarns are shipped. Each month the spin will be different. You might receive a singles yarn, a 2-ply yarn, a textured yarn, fine, medium or bulky weight. With each skein, you will receive a pattern than can be knit or crocheted from that quantity of yarn.
I dye our fleece with plants from our dyer’s garden. Coreopsis, indigo, woad, Virginia creeper, etc. In 2014, when our new fence was being built, the sheep got into the indigo and woad, and, well, they “ate the whole thing.” So, this season, I have been dyeing with indigo from Dharma Trading. This winter, I am seeding flats with locally sourced indigo seed, so we hope to be back on the “we grew it here” track very soon.
When you order the 12 month or 6 month subscription, you receive a discount: a $50 discount if you purchase 12 months, a $25 discount if you purchase 6 months. Domestic Shipping is included in the 12 month and 6 month subscriptions.
You may join at any time. Subscribe by the 20th of the month to receive your shipment the following month. Shipment is made from Florida by the 15th of the month.
If you order both a 6-month Natural and a 6-month Naturally Dyed, you can receive them concurrently (two skeins/month) or consecutively (6 months of Natural followed by 6 months of Dyed) – just be sure to message me your preference.
