August Spice Market
(Yarn & Soap)
Yarn colours will reflect, but are not limited to, the inspiration photo and the spice of each month.
You can expect a mixture of solids, tonals and lightly speckled yarns throughout this year.
Each soap bar is hand crafted by us using the traditional cold process method order to retain the full benefits of the natural ingredients and essential oils that we use.
All yarn clubs are posted with Australia Post and include tracking which will be sent to your email address on file once your order has shipped.
- Items ordered together with the yarn clubs will be posted at the same time so please order separately if you would like your other items shipped earlier.
- Please choose your preferred yarn base and the number of skeins you would like. If you need more than 4 skeins please send me an email to email@example.com and I will organise a separate invoice for you. Also if you would like to mix and match your yarn bases in the same club I can send an invoice so you are not charged twice for the included treats.
- Each club will close at the end of the previous month and are shipped by the middle of their correlating month. This gives us time to dye the yarns and order the special treats we love to include.
- The yarn bases will change over the Australian seasons. Along with our regulars there will be new yarn bases throughout the year to suit the seasons. For example, sparkle yarns may be an option closer to Christmas, cotton or linen blend yarns may be available in the warmer months and heavier weight, DK and Aran during our cool season.

This is an ethically sourced, sustainable and non mulesed, Australian grown fine Merino (19.5 micron).

This declaration is subject to independent verification checks and farm inspections.
