By joining the November club you are supporting another small maker with an at home indie business. We have to limit the number of orders that can be taken as we order our special feature yarn base and the treat ahead of time to give Makers time to create a gorgeous product for you.
Please Note: Any items purchased with this club will not be posted until November.
The November Yarn
This month we have a beautiful sock yarn for you. This yarn is just like our regular Merino Silk Yak but with 10% nylon added so you can make a luxurious pair of socks for yourself or someone special. The yarn base starts of grey like with our regular Merino Silk Yak and when it is dyed this creates a deep saturated colour with moody undertones.
If you are not a sock knitter but have a collection of our other Merino Silk Yak then these skeins will fit into your stash perfectly and can be paired with them in a project.70% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Yak, 10% Nylon
100g skein - 400m
This month we are so pleased to be partnering with Amy from Amy Jade Creations. Amy creates the most gorgeous, eco friendly little Needle Books from a soft palette of natural fabrics. We love Amy's slow living approach to what she does, her relaxed vibe and use of sustainable natural products.
These little needle books are all made by Amy herself (as with all our Makers in our monthly Makers Clubs) and are just the perfect thing to keep your sewing notions in.
On the outside cover, both front and back, they are a patchwork of gentle fabric tones and inside you will find a lovely calico lining with little pockets to store things in and felt leaves to secure your sewing and darning needles and pins. They would also be perfect to store your blocking pins in a pretty way.
November Fibre Exploration
Feature Yarn - Tibetan Sock
70% Superwash Merino 20% Yak 10% Nylon. A beautiful blend that will make the most luxurious pair of socks but could equally be used in any garment. Due to the Yak component of this yarn (or any other yarn containing yak due to the short fibres) it is a non superwash yarn and suitable for a gentle hand wash only.
Lux Sock - We are still hoping that we will be able to offer this yarn base once the mill is able to supply again.
Merino Silk Yak - One of our regular luxury blend yarns 60% Merino 20% Silk 20% Yak. Gorgeous for sweaters and shawls, hats, scarves and pretty much anything except socks. This yarn is soft, has a beautiful drape and a pretty sheen. The grey base creates depth of colour when dye is applied and the yak gives the colour a light grey halo effect. 366m per 100 grams.
Silky Sock - This is a gorgeous luxury yarn base of 50% Superwash Merino and 50% Mulberry Silk. Fingering weight with 400m per 100 grams. You can see more of how this yarn dyes up in our regular listings under the 'Fingering Weight' section of the website.
