Take a sneak peak at Yarn Cartel Boxes that have already been sent.
PLEASE NOTE THAT OUT SUBSCRIPTION CLUB IS DYED TO ORDER AND PREVIOUS BOXES ARE NO LONGER AVAILABLE.
Box 1 - Prohibition - January 2019
Our inaugural box features the following yarn bases, depending up which thickness you chose:
LACE: Tia Merino Lace - this is new to Countess Ablaze and is single ply superwash merino with 800 metres to the skein.
FINGERING: Tia Merino - this tried and trusted yarn base is perfect for items that do not encounter much friction, such as scarves and shawls. It is definitely NOT suitable for socks. Single ply superwash merino with 400 metres to the skein.
DK: Grande Merino DK - another firm favourite of Countess Ablaze yarn bases, and is plied superwash and superfine merino with 225 metres to the skein.
Superwash yarns can be machine washed on a very low temperature but ideally should be hand washed to preserve the longevity of the colour. It is not unusual to encounter light bleeding with hand dyed yarn.
The box is made from recycled cardboard, using minimal plastic for the seal and uses plant dyes for the outside colour. Made and dyed in the UK by a British company.
Mini skeins of Lady Persephone Sock Yarn - 75% superwash Bluefaced Leicester and 25% nylon. We don't like to make mini skeins for the main website so you'll tend to find them only in Yarn Cartel subscription boxes as a treat.
Hip Flask - perfect to hide your whisky, gin or lemonade. It is Prohibition afterall!
Green & Blacks Chocolate - a British chocolatier, since 1991 with organic chocolate certified by the Fairtrade Foundation.
