Yarn and Fiber Clubs
Tiger Club will open for new subscriptions on February 1. Until then the buttons are 'off'. If you'd like to be on the waitlist, please use the contact form above.
Join the Tiger Club! Simply sign up for the club of your choice, and 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 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). 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!

:I LOVE my fiber, and want to spin it RIGHT NAO! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this club = best purchase decision EVER This is such cool fiber this month! Yes! Yes! It’s an absolutely wonderful colorway--LOVE IT! Wow! I want to start knitting this month’s goodies today! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s here!! it just arrived - I practically attacked the mailman to get it!! SO PRETTY!
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.
Subscriptions open (if spots are available) on the 1st of the month and close on the 15th. 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. Packages will ship the last week of each month, arriving in the first few days of the next month.
Would you like to purchase a Gift Subscription, International Club, a different combination of yarn and fiber, prefer manual monthly billing, or have another concern? Please contact me
and I'll be happy to help you. While PayPal does handle the processing for Tiger Club, you are NOT required to have a PayPal account.
Join your choice of club now for beautiful and unique fiber or yarn (or both!) at your door every month! Remember, there is no long term commitment unless you want there to be. Try Tiger Club for a month!
Subscriptions are handled through PayPal (no account required), the buttons will take you directly to PP rather than our regular cart.
*Note: I purchase supplies for Club months in advance to ensure it is on hand. I'm firmly a 'bird in the hand' gal. :)
Hand Dyed Sock Yarn of the Month Club
The yarns for the Sock Club will mainly be appropriate for knitting socks. Examples are Titanium Tiger Twist, Targhee, Tiger Tweed, Journey, Safari, Bengal, Panda. These vary from a light fingering weight to nearly sport, all are superwash, and most also contain nylon.
All yarns will be either 100 grams or 4 oz (115 g), and yardage varies between 400-490 yards, enough to make a pair of adult socks, a small shawl, or other sock weight project. Occasionally, the put-up may be 2-5 mini-skeins to equal the full yardage.
Dyeing methods will include kettle, semi-solid, speckled, tonal, painted, dipped, etc. About half of the yarn you receive will be variegated and are typically planned to create mini-stripes on socks. About 2-3 times over the course of a year you can expect to receive a more premium/time consuming dyeing method such as self-striping, matching gradient, sock blank, or a mini-skein set. I create the various types randomly, so what you receive may seem to vary from the ratio I describe above if you only join for a few months.

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 Jacob, Finn, Merino, Corriedale, Targhee, Falkland, Dorset Horn, BFL, Wensleydale, Polwarth, Shetland, Romney, and more. I generally do not send mohair or angora due to many having allergies to them, but do sometimes dye camelids (camel, alpaca, llama). I also occasionally offer wool blends with things such as bamboo, tencel, silk, and firestar.
My goal is variety, so I plan for different fibers within a 6 month period, however depending on when you join in the cycle, you may get a repeat as I do change up the order.
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

Due to low demand, I do not have buttons set up for International Club, however we would LOVE to have you. Please drop me a line using the contact form, and I'll give you a quote...most clubs are only an additional $4-6 to cover the shipping difference.
Sales Tax is included in the subscription for Iowans.
A subscription will set up a recurring payment in PayPal. You will automatically be charged every month on the day you sign up until you unsubscribe. You may unsubscribe yourself by using the button above, from within your PayPal account, or use the contact form on this site and I can do it for you.
Here's an unsubscribe button, or manage through your PayPal account.
No returns on clubs once they are shipped, the surprise is part of the fun. You are welcome to trade, sell, swap, or gift any yarn and/or fiber that doesn't jive with your personal style, no waiting period or restrictions.
Teasers and shipping notification will be posted on The Painted Tiger's Ravelry group
, and on Facebook
. I hope you will join us in discussing and sharing!
I've been asked a few times, so I'll add this here: The Painted Tiger is a scent-free shop; I'm personally sensitive to fragrances, so I do not use detergent with perfume, nor do I wear scented personal products. We do have cats, they are not allowed in the studio, they don't much like being picked up, and I do my best to be clean when I work with and pack the yarn and fiber. If you have other allergy concerns, please do contact me for answers!!

How To Change Your Payment Information Within Paypal
If you used PayPal to pay for your club subscription and need to update the payment information (change payment method or update credit card information) you will need to log in to your Paypal account to make those changes.
Here’s how to change your funding source for preapproved payments:
Clicking here takes you directly to the page navigated to in the instructions below:
- Log in to your PayPal account.
- Click the Setting gear icon near the top right of the page.
- Click Payments.
- Click the Manage Automatic Payments button
- Click the name of the merchant for the agreement you want to change.
- Under "Payment method," click Change next to the funding source you're looking to change.
If you have a balance with PayPal, this will always be the first payment method they use to pay a billing agreement or automatic payment.
Paypal will use that updated payment information for the next recurring payment taken for your Tiger Club.
