Pssst, wanna hear a secret?
All your begging/pleading/bribing/campaigning has paid off – The Posh Yarn Sock Club is back!!!
And it’s better than ever (at least I think so!). The Club will run throughout 2009, with yarn being sent out every other month. Rather than using the same base yarn throughout, as we did last time, you will receive a different type of yarn each time, giving you a fantastic opportunity to try out some of our most popular yarns. The yarns being featured (not necessarily in this order, of course) are:
Emily – 80% lambswool, 10% angora, 10% cashmere, 360 yards per 100g, normal price is £13.
Laura – 80% merino, 20% cashmere, 400 yards per 100g, normal price is £14.
Lei – 65% supermerino, 20% bamboo, 15% silk, 380 yards per 100g, normal price is £13.
Helena 4ply – organic merino, 360 yards per 100g, normal price is £11.
Charlotte 4ply – 50% merino/50% silk, 400 yards per 100g, normal price is £13.
Claudia 4ply – pure alpaca, 430 yards per 100g, normal price is £13.
Along with each shipment of yarn, you will receive a club newsletter, telling you about our inspiration for that month’s colourway, and suggesting a few suitable patterns. I know that many of you will want to use the yarn for something other than socks, and so we’ll be taking that into account when planning our colourways and picking out pattern ideas. The yarn will be sent out at the start of February, April, June, August, October, and December.
Signups will open at 7pm on Sunday January 4th, and places will be limited. Membership costs £70 for the year, so as well as giving you a lovely treat throughout the year, you are also saving money, about 10% on the retail cost of the yarn. Postage costs will be £10 for UK members, £15 for European members, and £18 for international members (this is taking into account the fact that postage costs are going up a little bit in April, as Royal Mail are raising their prices). So, here’s the total cost of a year’s membership of the Posh Yarn Sock Club:
UK Membership: £80
European Membership: £85
International Membership: £88
When you checkout, you will be able to see three postage options, depending on where you live. Please make sure you select the correct one! Once all the spots are filled, the Club will show as being sold out. Good luck!
PS. Our next regular shop update will be Sunday January 11th, and will include several new yarns. More on that to come!!
