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.

Gifts: 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 after all!

Green & Blacks Chocolate - a British chocolatier, since 1991 with organic chocolate certified by the Fairtrade Foundation.
