Yarn Club Details:
Flou is a laceweight 72% Mohair / 28% Bombyx Silk yarn.
This gorgeous yarn is a silk core wrapped in soft, fuzzy mohair. Great on its own for lightweight yet warm lace and other projects. But lots of possibilities - carry it along with another yarns to add fluff and softness to accessories, sweaters, or hold two or more strands together for super fuzzy, soft, and warm projects.
1.75 ounces (50g), 459 yards (420m) per skein.
Gauge for lace: 18-25 stitches / 4 inches on US Needle Size 3-8.
"Flou" means "fuzzy" in French :-D
2019 ANNUAL CLUBS ARE NOW CLOSED. IF YOU’D LIKE ADVANCED NOTICE OF OTHER CLUBS AND SPECIALS, PLEASE SIGN UP FOR MY NEWSLETTER ABOVE. THANK YOU!
This year's clubs are a bit different than past years due to my relocation to New Mexico. I've simplified the club offerings and changed the Yarn Club to include four shipments rather than 6, so club members will be receiving a shipment at the end of each quarter. I've also decided not to have a Sweater Club this year due to how much work it is and the fact that I'll most likely be working without help for the first time in about 10 years!
But, because I know many people prefer larger quantities of yarn for bigger projects, I'm offering Yarn Club in FOUR sizes, rather than just two. You can now choose single, double, triple, or quadruple skein clubs. If you would like even more than that, shoot me an email and I'm happy to work with you.
Yarn Club Details:
Club shipments will occur around the 25th of each shipment month (March, June, September, December).
It's always really hard to choose which yarns to include in the Clubs. For 2019, I've selected four yarns that have been customer favorites (even Zaftig, which is a new base from 2018, but has already become a favorite for many). All will create wonderful, soft projects and are an absolute pleasure to work with. For me, a big part of what I enjoy about knitting is the tactile pleasure of feeling the yarn in my fingers. I've also selected bases that I adore for how beautifully they take color, and how wonderful they are to wear.
Since most are superwash they're also eminently suitable for gift and baby / child knitting, if you're so inclined. I hope you love the selections!
The following yarns are included in the 2019 Clubs. Please note that they will not ship in this exact order; which yarn ships when will be dependent upon the delivery schedule from my mill, and is an added surprise in addition to color! :-):
Sunna (fingering weight superwash Merino, Cashmere, & Silk), 356 yards per 115g skein.
Aurora (fingering weight 100% superwash Merino single ply), 400 yards per 100g skein.
Verdande (worsted weight superwash Merino, Cashmere, & Silk), 220 yards per 115g skein.
Zaftig (super bulky 100% 20.5 Fine Merino, singles), 90 yards per 150g skein.
Also, if you would prefer to pay the up-front lump sum payment by check, please email me at email@example.com to coordinate this. Thank you!
Lastly, please be sure to read the Club Terms page for important information about the Clubs!

Information on each base may be found on each colorway page, in the right hand column under purchase options and suicide prevention fundraiser ticker.
All orders are dyed-to-order, and will ship approximately 5-7 business days from order date.
If you need assistance with color combinations for multi-color projects, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm happy to help, and love putting colors together!
Hand-dyed silk scarves, ranging in size from 14" x 72" to 35" x 48" (my personal favorite size as it can be both a fabulous scarf in winter, and a light shawl in warmer months). Each scarf is absolutely one-of-a-kind as I allow the special alchemy of the dye pots to have a bit more freedom than I do when I dye yarn.
It's amazing how warm these lightweight scarves are. I love nothing better than to wrap one around my neck and pin it closed; it's so soft and comforting, and warm! My favorite way to keep warm during the winter.
Scarves are either 100% Silk, or 60% Silk - 40% Wool, shown in individual product descriptions.
This page is for shop updates of Lucky Pots, one-of-a-kind, non-repeating colors, limited edition Subscriber Color Inspirations, and other special shop updates.
Lucky Pots are ready to ship, and once they're gone, they're gone! These colors are me playing with dyes and color, not writing down what I do - just getting creative and having fun!
Dyed-to-Order updates found on this page, including Limited Edition Subscriber Color Inspirations, are dyed once the listings close and typically take four weeks to ship.
Subscriber Color Inspirations are special, limited editions colors based on photos send to me each month by my newsletter subscribers. I choose one to inspire a set of special colors, and then for a limited time after these colors debut, dyed-to-order listings will be open to order as many skeins of each as you'd like.
If you'd like to play along, subscribe to my newsletter at the top of my home page, or the drop down menu on mobile devices, and send me a photo that inspires you ~ if I pick your photo, you'll get a free skein of your special color on the yarn base I dye it on!
