Yarn and Fiber Clubs
Tiger Club will open for new subscriptions on August 1st.
Join the Tiger Club! Simply sign up for the club of your choice, and near the end of each month you will receive lovely hand dyed sock yarn and/or fiber that will be exclusive to the club for at least 4 months*. Payments are monthly, and there is no minimum (or maximum) commitment. You will continue to be in the club until you tell us to stop.
Fiber and yarn will be in the same colorway (or very related), and will alternate between variegated, gradient/self striping, semi-solid, kettle dyed, and blended. I do my best to send a wide variety of colors, intensities, and techniques throughout the year. If you feel like you are in a rut, Tiger Club can get you to try some new things!
Here is a slideshow of previous yarn and fiber, if it isn't working for your browser, click here to visit the Flickr album.
This club has been running since April of 2010, so there's a lot to see!

But wait, there's more! As a club member, you will receive free shipping on any yarn or fiber you purchase from the shop to be shipped with your club (US addresses only). You'll receive a code for easy checkout, but if you forget, just drop me a line and I'll refund the shipping for you.
The subscription period is from the 16th of the month to the 15th of the next month. You will automatically be charged on the same day each month, so it is easy to be in the club....and easy to bow out whenever you want. Want to purchase Tiger Club as a gift for someone? Please use the contact form and we'll arrange it! Packages will ship the last week of each month, arriving in the first few days of the next month. Don't have a PayPal account? Contact me.
Join your choice of club now for beautiful and unique fiber or yarn (or both!) at your door every month! (If you'd like a different combination than those listed, do contact me!) Remember, there is no long term commitment unless you want there to be. Try Tiger Club for a month!
Hand Dyed Sock Yarn of the Month Club
Yarn will alternate between Tiger Twist,
Targhee, Tiger Tweed, Panda, Journey, and Safari; with possible other comparable yarns thrown in at my discretion. Occasionally, you will receive a Sport weight. You receive a full skein (100 grams or 4 ounces), enough to make a pair of adult socks.
Dyeing techniques include self-striping, Filet of Sole, variegated, gradient, and kettle dyed. Sometimes, the yarn will be dyed specifically for knitting a shawl.
Tiger Sock Club
Hand Dyed Fiber of the Month Club
Fiber will be in a similar colorway as the sock club, and will vary in the fiber each month. Examples are Superwash Merino, Corriedale, Targhee, Falkland, BFL, Wensleydale, Polwarth, Shetland, Romney, and more. No goat, no bunny, sometimes camelids (camel, alpaca, llama). In the summer, there will often be a plant based selection such as bamboo, cotton or tencel.
I try to have a different fiber every month of the year, but some may be repeated in blends, and you may get a repeat depending on the time of year you join as I do mix them up.
These will generally be 4 oz for a single fiber membership, 8 oz for double fiber.
A few times a year, you may receive a specialty fiber such as a silk or exotic fiber blend.These offerings may be a smaller amount in oz, but the overall dollar value will be appropriate.

Double Fiber Club
Double Your Fun

Remember that both yarn and fiber will be in a similar colorway.
Single Fiber and Sock Club
(One portion of fiber, one skein of yarn)
Due to the current postage rates and regulations, I have discontinued the International portion of the club. I apologize for this, and hope you will enjoy browsing the regular shop. If you are very interested, please use the contact form to let me know your location and I'll give you a quote.
Sales Tax is included in the subscription for Iowans.

How To Change Your Payment Information Within Paypal
