Sign ups for Treasure Island Mini Skein Club – January are now open!

Following on from the success of last year’s The Wind In The Willows, Peter Pan And Wendy, Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and The Nutcracker Mini Skein Clubs, we are running another three-month Mini Skein Club from January to March.

This latest Club will take its inspiration from the children’s literary classic, Treasure Island, by Scottish author, Robert Louis Stevenson. The classic coming-of-age adventure story was first serialised in a children’s magazine from 1881 to 1882 but has since been adapted for stage and screen many times over.

Each month, we will produce 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, there will be a total of 15 mini skeins to collect (five in each month’s box). Skeins will include semi-solids, speckles and some hand-painted yarn and will be exclusively available to club members only.

To enable customers to spread the cost of joining the Treasure Island Mini Skein Club, we ask that you subscribe each month, purchasing one box at a time – this will not be a rolling subscription and if you want to receive the next month’s set of mini skeins, you must subscribe and purchase the following month’s box.

Sign ups for Box One (January) will close on Monday January 24th and the first set of minis in the series will be posted shortly afterwards.

As with our previous Mini Skein Clubs, we will be using the beautiful illustrations of Robert Ingpen to inspire the yarns created.
