    Welcome to the Indigodragonfly yarn club with a geekish slant...

    4 shipments per year: March/April,  June/July, September/ October and November/December 2019 (dates subject to unscheduled deaths, dismemberments, Hellmouth openings, Zombie outbreaks and/or supplier meltdowns)

    Each shipment will include yarn and swag (mystery gift). You choose how much yarn you get.

    Yarn Pool is in effect.

    The Yarn Pool was created to help make our yarn clubs more affordable to those with lower incomes. For this round, Yarn Pool grants will be given in amounts from $50-$100. Grantees will be chosen through random number generation.

    To nominate: Email kim@indigodragonfly.ca  (nominate yourself or someone you know who is in need.)

    Contribute to the Yarn Pool here.

    ADD-ONS!

    Swag - Add "full-size" swag to your package. Past swag has included books, games, small craft kits (not knitting) and knitting/fibre tools. You will get one item with every package. (average value: $25-30)

    WE THE NERD themes:

    • Canuck Nerdity - think House Hippo, CBC, Canadian Heritage Moments with a touch of Arogant Worms.
    • American Geekishness - comic books, NASA, PBS, stolen Canadian actors...
    • UK Swotiosity - Britcom, Brexit, the REAL way to make a cup of tea, royalty and Doctors of all stripes
    • International Dorkitude - marsupial trivia, animal print realness,

    You will receive 4 shipments, each with a different theme.  Colourways and Colour names for each shipment will be inspired by the theme of the shipment. There will be several colourways per shipment, with a maximum of 700 g or 7 full skeins of each colourway. Think of them as knitterly trading cards distributed amongst Club members.  Kind of a weird knitterly Magic the Gathering...

    Sock Club - 4 yarn bases: 

    • CaribouBaa (100% 4 ply superwash merino, 435 yds per 100 g)
    • Chameleon Sock (63% extra fine superwash merino/20% cashmere/17% silk, 400 yds per 100 g)
    • KiwiFloofen Sock (100% Polwarth wool, 400 yds per 100g)

    • KiwiFloofen DK (100% Polwarth wool, 240 yds per 100g)
    • Mystery Base (surprise yarn base, minimum 230 yds per 100g)

    Nut-free Club (for those with sensitivities to wool) - 3 yarn bases: 

    • Linen Silk Lace (65% linen/35% silk, 715 yds per 115 g) - 2 shipments
    • Linen Silk Sock (65% linen/35% silk, 400 yds per 115 g)
    • Mystery Base (surprise yarn base, minimum 390 yds per 100g)

    You may choose to have all your skeins in each shipment in one colour (perfect for sweater knitters!), or you may choose to receive different colours.

    Colours:
    Prior to each shipment, we will send out a colour survey to find out what we should NOT send you. All colours can be exchanged for a random replacement skein. All leftover skeins will be put up for sale to Geek Club members first, a few weeks after shipping Club packages.
