One photograph. Four dyers. Four colourways. One unique club.
How it works:
Before each shipment, we will call for photo submissions from our club members that will inspire the dyeing for that round of club. We will narrow down the photos submitted to 3 images and ask you, our club members, to vote for the one you would like us to interpret in the dye pots.
Each shipment will have four different unique colourways, each inspired by the winning photograph. All dyeing techniques, known and unknown, are up for grabs. Semi-solids and tonals. Variegated yarns and speckles. Who knows what our little brains will come up with (insert maniacal laughter HERE)!!
4 shipments per club year. You pick the number of skeins you would like to receive.
Each shipment, you will receive one of the four colourways that has been dyed. You will also receive notes from each dyer as to what inspired them to create the colourway as well as pattern suggestions for each colourway. At some point during the club year, you will also receive an exclusive project bag designed and created for the club.
You will receive your chosen number of skeins on each of the following bases:
Wool Club-1 shipment of DK Matter (100% sw merino), 1 shipment of MerGoat Worsted (80% sw merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon), 1 shipment of CaribouBaa (100% sw merino), and 1 shipment of Merino Silk Lace (75% sw extra fine merino/25% mulberry silk)
Nut-Free (Non-Wool) Club-2 shipments of Chaingeling (50% linen/50% mulberry silk), and 2 shipments of Linen Silk Lace (65% linen/35% silk)
All prices include shipping and the cost of the club project bag.
Will I be able to pick which dyer I receive yarn from? No.
Can I have all of my skeins be the same colourway or will they all be different? You can choose whether you are receiving skeins that are the same or different.
What if I don’t like my skein? You will be able to exchange your skein for another random skein of our choosing from the same shipment.
Will you still be offering mystery skeins? No.
Will the colourways be repeatable? Will I be able to order them? Yes. As a club member, you will be able to order any of the current or past SAK colours just like you normally would.
Will you be offering artisan swag? No. Instead, we are going to carry more accessories as regular stock on our website and in our shop, allowing you to pick and choose what you want for your collection. This will also allow us to highlight more artisans.
When are sign ups? Club sign ups will start June 17th and run until July 5th
