Sign ups are now closed for The Wind In The Willows Mini Skein Club
Following on from the success of our 2020 12 Days of Christmas Box based on Raymond Briggs; classic children’s story, ‘The Snowman’, we have decided to introduce a brand new Mini Skein Club for 2021.
The Club will run from January to March and will take its inspiration from the much-loved tale, ‘The Wind In The Willows’ by Scottish novelist, Kenneth Grahame. The book, which was first published in 1908, follows the adventures of Badger, Ratty, Mole and Toad in a pastoral version of Edwardian England.
Each month, you will receive five hand dyed 100% British Bluefaced Leicester 4 Ply mini skeins weighing approximately 25g each, based on the classic tale. Over the course of three months you will receive 15 mini skeins in total. Skeins will include semi-solids, speckles and some hand-painted yarn and will be exclusively available to club members only.
Sign ups will close on Friday January 29th and your first month’s set of minis will be posted shortly afterwards. February’s batch will be posted shortly after February 28th and March’s will be posted shortly after March 29th. There is a one off payment for the Mini Skein Club and we’ll take care of the rest.
