YarnYAY! May Subscription Pack
Wow, how time flies. This month marks YarnYAY!‘s 2 year anniversary! To celebrate we’ve put together a gorgeous subscription pack (<— scroll down to see why I’m not calling it a box), in partnership with three other women-owned businesses and exclusive bundles of my new color collection with Mad|Tosh. In addition to all of the stitcherly goodies, community events, and tutorials that always come with a YarnYAY! subscription, this month, subscribers will be entered to win one of three prizes: 1, $250 gift e-card to Jimmy Beans Wool, and 2, $100 gift e-cards for the respective winners’ chosen local yarn shop.
Now, without further ado, here’s the scoop on our YarnYAY! May Subscription Pack!
WHAT’S IN MAY’S SUBSCRIPTION PACK
- HIGH-FIVE BUNDLE | VICKIE HOWELL FOR MAD TOSH
We are THRILLED to announce this collaboration between Vickie Howell and the beloved yarn company Mad|Tosh. Exclusively for our 2nd Anniversary subscribers, Vickie created the “High-Five Bundle”, which includes 4 Tosh Merino Light and 1 Tosh Tweed minis dyed in Vickie’s colors and named thematically in shades: Spirit Fingers (turquoise tweed), Snaps (grey), Heart Hands (blush), Peace Fingers (orange) and Pinky Swear (magenta). Full hanks are available in our shop and will soon be available in LYSs nationwide! Mad Tosh is based in Fort Worth, TX, and newly established in 2019 when Laura Zander purchased the company.
- HIGH-FIVE WRIST WARMERS | DESIGNS BY VICKIE HOWELL
Your hands will feel a little jazzier in this month’s knit and crochet project! Both pairs are striped in a playful pop-y manner. The knit version uses a Herringbone rib for subtle slants of fabric, and the crochet pair is made in a Lemon Peel stitch for added texture.
- WASHABLE PAPER YARN CADDY | YARNYAY!
We’re obsessed with the washable paper that’s taking over the textile world right now. It crinkles and wears similar to a waxed canvas, which gives it endless crafting capabilities. Our yarn bag caddy is in Rose Gold (because we’re fancy) and is perfect for setting your yarn in while you work so it doesn’t roll off the table. For more fun accessories go to here or the YarnYAY! Shop.
- WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER POSTCARD | ROCK SCISSOR PAPER
Right now we think we all need a little reminder that We’re All in This Together. This endearing postcard is perfect for sending a hand-written message to someone whom you’re unable to see in person at the moment. Rock Scissor Paper is a Northern California-based stationary company, owned by sisters Heidi & Susie Bauer.
- SOAK WASH MINI | SOAK
This month’s project will be made even better with a gentle hand-washing and blocking using warm water Soak Wash. The mini packet is good for a couple of small-projects’-worth of washings. Soak is a women-owned-and-operated company in Vancouver, Canada.
We’re Going Greener!
In an effort to lessen YarnYAY!’s environmental footprint, this month we’re experimenting with parting ways with larger boxes and wasteful crinkle paper, and instead of trying durable, 100% recyclable Kraft envelops made from 90% post-consumer materials. They’re gusseted to accommodate add-on purchases to subscription pack orders (so fewer shipments, creating less transportation pollution), and have printed graph paper on the back of each envelope so subscribers can upcycle it for charting out future designs and schematics. Yaaaaay, environmental consciousness!
