There’s not a huge amount I can say about this magical box as all the colours included are a total surprise. I’m not even going to tell you the name of the colour in the main images (it’s Begonia) and I’m certainly not going to tell you if it’s one of the colours we’ve send out (it was! *wink* ) Here’s the stuff I can tell you…

This listing is for a Subscription Box of Super Chunky Merino Wool Yarn that will go out every other month. There are 6 INCREDIBLE Limited Edition colours (not our stock colours) that will be sent out throughout the year to our subscribers (Order before August 1st to get Box 4 of the 2020 subscriptions, despatched Early August) The box includes 1 colour of yarn and you can opt for 2, 3, 4 or 5 hanks. You can cancel your subscription at any time but there will be occasional treats for those who stick with us (possibly some patterns and whatnot.) Each subscription box is, of course, packaged beautifully as we all love happy post and will include your yarn (obviously), as well as an exclusive link for subscribers just in case you’d like to order more hanks of any of the limited edition coloured yarn (as it’s not available on the website as normal) As well as all of that, some of our small business friends have kindly sent us some incredible treats and discounts so each box has a range of goodies in it! You can read more on the blog.

Whether you just keep adding to your Yarn Stash or you make gifts throughout the year is up to you. If the element of surprise is a concern then rest assured we’ve really looked at which colours our customers love and what we think you’d like. If one month isn’t your fave shade then it’s a perfect opportunity to whip up some hats, scarfs, snoods, cushions – or maybe a cardigan for someone as a gift. Aren’t you nice?!

The first box was delivered in February then they continue every other month (April, June, August, October & December)

  • Choose from 2, 3, 4 or 5 hanks in your subscription
  • 100% Merino wool Super Chunky yarn in Limited Edition Colours
  • Enjoy a beautiful delivery of yarn every other month
  • 6 deliveries annually (February, April, June, August, October & December)
  • Super Soft and wonderful to work with
  • Beautifully Packaged and full of fun
  • Cancel at any time
  • Some boxes include a surprise Treat
  • Enjoy Happy Mail full of colour and inspiration!
  • Stock up ready for a project or whip up gifts all year round (for yourself or a friend!)

So here’s the deal…

You can place your order for 2, 3, 4 or 5 hanks, you’ll be automatically billed every 2 months (the amount depends on how many hanks you opt for) and in return, you’ll receive happy post every other month in the form of a Subscription box full of beautiful yarn! Each hank (whether you order 2 or 5) will be the same colour and every box is full of exclusive Limited Edition colours. Some boxes contain a surprise treat, such as a pattern, a tool/accessory for your knitting) You’ll also be given access to a secret link to order more of the limited edition colours if you wanted to stock up! You’ll also be able to view the details of your subscription and manage it via your LAD account.

Billing & Delivery…

Billing: The amount you’re charged will depend on the number of hanks you opt for. Every box will contain that number of hanks, the price will not change and will be automatically charged on your billing date every other month. The billing date for your subscription will depend on the original order date ie If you place your initial subscription order on January 15th your next billing date will be 2 months later on March 15th and continue every 2 months until/if you decide to cancel your subscription. You’ll be able to see your billing date and other subscription details on your account and via the initial order email once you’ve signed up.

Delivery: The subscription boxes will be packed on the 1st Tuesday of every other month starting with Box 1 in February (Despatch months: February, April, June, August, October & December) we will work in 2-month cycles for despatch – so for instance, if your initial subscription order is before February 1st you’ll receive Box 1 and all following boxes around the first week of the despatch months. Whereas if your initial subscription order is February 6th (which is past the Box 1 deadline) the first box you’ll receive will be Box 2 around the first week of April, your next bill will be charged on May 6th and for that charge, you’ll receive Box 3 at the beginning of June, and so on…. We’re hoping to run it as smoothly as possible but if you have any questions at all don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Deadlines (only applicable to your initial subscription order! Once you’ve subscribed they will automatically continue):

Please also bear in mind that we need to order the yarn in as it’s limited edition so if you order right before a deadline there’s a chance you’re order will be despatched a few days late however we promise to get it out as quickly as possible.

Things to make…

A few ideas for your yarn – Small gifts are perfect, you could make hats, gloves, snoods, cuffs, purses, home decorations, hot water bottles, pompoms and loads more with just one hank! With 2 or more hanks you could… knit up a cushion, a blanket, a jumper or a cardigan! If you already have some LAD patterns you could reknit any of them in these limited edition colours for a really unique project. If you want more hanks in a colour, you can use the exclusive link included in each box to order more. Some kits contain patterns (all suitable for beginners) for inspiration and motivation and with Pinterest and Ravelry a click away you’ll never be short of ideas for your yarn!

A few things to note…

-The colours are set in advance and can’t be altered, we won’t be able to chop and change which colours come in your box it will be the set, surprise colours.

-The amount can’t be altered month to month ie if you order a 3 hank box you will get 3 hanks in each box that’s delivered but you can always cancel your subscription and purchase a new one with a different amount of hanks.

We source our yarn from happy sheep. Due to its many magical properties and the fact that Lauren is allergic to a lot of other wool, we only use Merino.

Merino sheep are not native to this country so the wool itself is provided from farms around the world, however we are very careful where we do source our fibre from. Our Merino is from South America and the South African Cape and we don’t buy from farms that mules their sheep.

The best quality wool comes from happy sheep.  If a sheep has a poor diet and general poor health its fleece will suffer. Both the quality of life for the sheep and the quality of wool it produces are hugely important to us. We have strong relationships with our suppliers to ensure that we can trust them and their practices. Merinos shearers are all trained well to do it as efficiently and kindly as possible and the sheep are a lot happier once their 5kg fleeces are off!
