Yarn bases will vary. Yardage will vary based on yarn type, but will always be 100 gram skeins.

I will rotate bases like SW Merino, Alpaca, BFL, and Silk along with varying the yarn weights (Sport, DK, Worsted, Bulky).

The nice thing about this club is I'll be rotating in the luxury bases, but the price to you will remain only $25/month. For an extra $20 you can add a second skein of yarn to the club box. If you want more than one extra skein, message me and I’ll set up a custom listing.

I rarely knit with sock weight yarn. And there are so many amazing yarns I want to try out so I thought this would be a great way to do a club. Bases and weights will vary and be a surprise and I think that is part of the fun! :)

Order by the 15th of the month and your "Not Sock Yarn Club" yarn crate will be shipped out the 30th of the month.

Price includes USA Shipping. International customers will received reduced shipping charges.

Since this is a new club, photos are examples of previous sock clubs. Photos will be updated to reflect this new club as it progresses.


We accept paypal, credit cards, and Etsy gift cards. :)

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

I’d suggest delicate or handwash cold and lay flat to dry. Even if the yarn is superwash, I still suggest to err on the side of caution and hand wash in cold water. Sometimes colors may bleed the first time washed if it is a deeply saturated color or if the water you are using is hot. Cool water and a dab of hand soap is really all you need.

Which yarn bases do you offer?

Southern Sock: 75% superwash merino wool and 25% nylon sock / fingering weight yarn. 4 ply, 100 grams, 430 yards. The nylon makes the super soft and squishy merino even stronger.

Glisten Sock: 75/20/5% superwash merino, nylon, & sparkle yarn sock yarn. 2-ply, 100 grams, 430 yards. The 2 plies of this yarn plump up together for added strength, but keeping the softness and drape.

Alpaca Cloud: 40/40/20% baby alpaca, merino, & silk DK weight yarn. Single construction, 100 grams, 250 yards. There is no plies in this yarn, just one round, plump, soft yarn. Warm and cozy!

Cashmere Sweater: 80/20% cashmere and superwash merino wool in a worsted weight yarn. 3 ply, 181 yds, 100 grams. This yarn is luxurious and wonderful to work with

Yarn color bleeding

Yarn can bleed the first time being washed - especially dark colors. However, to reduce the chance I fully exhaust the color from each dye pan and soak each skein after dyeing in a wool wash and then a clear water soak. If I see color running, I change the water and go through the steps again. Any bleeding you see should be minimal to non existent

Are there knots in my yarn?

You should see 3 to 4 big loops that are tied with knots (loops are called figure 8 ties) around your skein. They are to keep your yarn from twisting into a big mess. They aren’t actually knots in the yarn. They are knots to keep the yarn straight and tangle-free.

Occasionally there might be a knot that came from the mill or such. I do the best that I can to keep that from happening; but, I’m human.

Large (Sweater or blanket) quantity

Yes! I do large quantities. If you don’t see that amount available of a color that you need, just message me and I’ll take care of it. I’m happy to do large quantities.

Why is my yarn not a solid color?

That’s because that is the beauty of artisan hand dyed yarn. We want to see the variations in light and dark. The depth variation adds beauty to your finished project. It is a hallmark of a hand dyed yarn to have tonal variances.

What is a dye lot?

A dye lot is the number of skeins dyed at one time in a kettle.

However, even skeins from the same dye pot can vary. It’s a hand made process. I take great care to ensure if you order multiple skeins of a color that they are both as close as possible. They will not match 100%. I would say they will match 95%.

Yarn photos

I take photos of my yarn on my iPhone.

I use a white backdrop in front of a window. I only color correct the photos to get the picture to as close to the actual color as possible. I don’t use any filters on my inventory photos.

Yarn photos shown on a wooden background are taken on a wooden table in my studio under natural room lighting.

Colors show differently on different monitors and screens. I try to get the colors as close to true as possible.

Where is the yarn sourced from?

My wool is sourced from South America. It is mulesing (a form of animal cruelty) free.

Color variations

Small batch hand dyed yarn is an art. It’s like cooking. No matter how careful you are with following a recipe exactly, there’s variations. Same thing applies to yarn. Once the dye is in the pot, the yarn may strike the color differently even in the same dye pot. Meaning one skein could have more or less of a color than the skein in the pot right next to it. If you are buying more than one skein I recommend alternating every few rows (most indie dyers recommend the same thing).
