Welcome to the 2023 yarn club. We're calling it The Book Club.
This listing is for the full year of the club with parcels going to the UK. We post worldwide - order here.
The 2023 will take its inspiration from books. It's fair to say that my reading tastes are wide ranging, so inspiration will come from textbooks, non fiction and fiction works.
WHEN WILL PARCELS BE POSTED?
There will be six yarn club parcels, arriving January, March, May, July, September and November.
The January club will be posted on Monday 16th January, and all other clubs will be posted at arrive at the start of the month.
Sending the January clubs little later allows us to offer clubs to people who want them as Christmas gifts, and also allows us to avoid posting at the busiest time of the year.
When you buy a full year of a club we buy all of the yarn we need and keep it for the clubs. We've been delivering clubs for more than a decade and we've never missed a posting date.
WHAT'S THE YARN BASE?
The 2023 yarn club will be dyed on our British Bluefaced Leicester and nylon base. It's a brilliant yarn which works well for everything - tough enough for socks and soft enough for baby clothes.
The yarn is spun by a local Yorkshire mill, the fleece comes from UK flocks and all processing is done in the UK. Each 100 gram skein has 400 meters of yarn.
WHAT COLOUR CHOICES ARE THERE?
Choose from semi solid, multi colour, splodge ( speckles with attitude and self striping)
Semi solid colours will be dyed with a single colour and will have tonal variations.
Multi colours will be dyed with at least three colours.
Splodge yarns will be dyed with one base colour and will have accents of several different colours.
Self striping yarns will have at least three colours - and possibly a whole lot more.
WILL THE COLOURS GO TOGETHER?
Absolutely yes. The semi solid will work with the multi colour, splodge and self striping colourway.
CAN I ORDER MORE THAN ONE SKEIN OF A COLOUR?
Absolutely - and we'll make sure they come from the same dye batch.
DO I GET A PATTERN OR ANY OTHER EXTRAS?
No - the clubs are yarn only. Why? Club customers want to make different things. Some make socks, others choose hats, shawls and garments. Yarns get used in knitting, crochet, weaving and embroidery. So there's no pattern that works for everyone, and including one means extra cost. The same goes for the 'free treats' which get included with some clubs. They're included in the price somewhere, and often they end up being something you wouldn't have paid for. We'd sooner focus on fabulous yarn.
CAN I PAY FOR A SINGLE PARCEL?
Of course. Paying for the full year saves you 10% , but we get that's not for everyone. You can pay for a single parcel here (for UK parcels) and here (for parcels going worldwide). We'll let you know when the next parcel is available so you son't miss out, and you can pause or stop your club membership at any time.
HOW DOES POSTAGE WORK?
Postage is included in club prices - so the price of the first skein you select includes postage using Royal Mail 48 tracked postage. Further skein prices don't include postage.
PRICES MAY CHANGE
We've launched the 2023 clubs with prices held at 2022 levels. We'll be revising prices on Monday 14th November to take into account the higher prices we're paying for raw materials and utilities.
