This year will mark the fifth instalment of the TFA Year In Colour Club; a custom colourway, single skein yarn club for 2015!
Every other month (January, March, May, July, September and November) members only will receive a custom-dyed skein of yarn with an exclusive pattern designed by me! (Tanis Lavallée)
The Club features a wide variety of yarn weights and fiber contents. Expect to receive anything from lace weight to aran weight yarn. Six different bases will be highlighted throughout the year. The Club also features six exclusive colourways! Light or dark, neutrals or neons, there are no rules. The Club colourways are designed to be inspiring!
The patterns will all be one skein wonders, designed specifically for the custom colourway it accompanies. Expect to receive patterns for anything from shawls, cowls, hats, mitts and beyond!
The Club patterns will be distributed via e-mail through Ravelry. You do not need to be a Ravelry member to receive your pattern, but you do need to ensure that the e-mail address you sign up for the Club with is one that you will check! Club patterns will be delivered electronically about a week or so after all the Club yarns have been mailed to ensure that you have your yarn in hand before the pattern arrives (wouldn't want to spoil the surprise for anyone!)
Club shipments will be mailed out towards the middle of the month (ex: shipment for January will go out mid January). The club colourways and patterns will not be available anywhere else for the duration of the Club calendar year.
Club memberships will be available all year long. New members who join throughout the year will receive all past shipments with their first package. Be sure to join by the 1st of the month to ensure that you'll get your shipment asap! For example, sign up on March 1st and you'll receive your January and March Club yarns together in March, sign up on March 2nd and you'll have missed the deadline for the March shipment and you will receive your January and March Club skeins along with the next batch of shipments in May.
Additional skeins of Club colourways are available in all bases! To inquire about placing a special order for more of your favourite Club colourway please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
