Are you ready to be inspired? Do you enjoy the luxury of working with handspun art yarn as unique as you are? If so this is the club for you!
We have said it before, but it bears repeating--We like to think of ourselves as creative enablers. One of the biggest joys we take from our work is in the knowing what we make becomes part of what you make. That said, we are inspired in our work by many things our lovely customers, nature, history and our furry friends. This yarn of the month club is inspired by our love of gardening. Laura and Steph, the owners of Wildethyme Art, are both fantastic gardeners who love to tend veggies and flowers -- and that is where the inspiration for this unique line comes from.
Every month you will receive a handspun yarn of unique fiber blends inspired by our love of gardening. The fiber used is dyed, hand carded and blended especially for club members with exclusive colorway from a plant in one of several of our gardens! These colorways will not be available to the general public until at least 6 months after the club has ended--if ever. Your yarn will arrive with a card telling about the plant that inspired the month's yarn as well as a cutting or seeds, complete with growing information!
The tech specs:
-- You choose the options, let us know your preferences (or not :)
-- We'll surprise you within any limits you set
-- Each yarn is at least 6 oz. If we get carried away, it could be more :)
-- every skein will be at least 100 yards, depending on how bulky we spin it
-- and that is... bulky-super bulky
-- We ship/store/ bathe our wool products with lavender. Please let us know if allergies are an
issue and we'll work your order differently :)
-- Shipped in a biodegradable, cello bag.
-- Yarn is mailed around the 27th of each month, a week after our fiber clubs ship.
* If you order between the 22nd and 27th, you *might* have to wait until the following
month for your first yarn. It just depends on the projects and orders we have at the time :)
-- Herbs: Yarns will be heavy on greens, with small bits of surprising color. Texture will range
on the more delicate side.
-- Flowers: Sophisticated color, a highly textured option, with greens and violets
-- Vegetables: Smoother yarn with subtle texture, the MOST color of all the options, with
greens and violets as complements.
-- Succulents: Smoother yarns with subtle color variations. Silver greens, silver, violet and
lavender color complements.
-- Surprise Me: This is the recommended option as we'll take the most artistic -
road with this option. Think coils, beehives, beads, boucle', locks, color plays, add ins...

We have a handful of wholesale accounts, but at this time, we are not looking for more. We thank you for your interest :)
The ability to customize, personalize orders is the number one reason we work mostly on a "made to order" basis. We want you to have everything just as you need/want it! We understand that this makes our shipping times slower, but we hope you will agree that we are worth the wait :)
Not always. Let us know if this is important, and we will make it happen.
It's a long, convoluted answer having to do with the fact that we offer variations of weight in our batts and other items. We pay the extra shipping on larger batts, but we have no way of setting the shipping lower on the sample sizes, so we have to meet somewhere in the middle --which is often WAY too much if you are ordering a quantity of sample batts.
And yes. We can fix it, just message us. Or.. check out and leave us a note reminding us to refund your excess shipping. Either way, we understand. We hate overpaying for shipping too :D
If we forgot them, of course we will :D
But first... take a peek on the side of the foam. 99.99% of the time, they are there, just overlooked.
We dye a very large proportion (80-90%!!) of our wool, Firestar and Silk. We're really proud of the number of colors we offer-- and we only have plans to do more. We do this because it the work we love to do, it's one of many things that we think make our work worthwhile, special. Additionally, we do not want our batts sitting in inventory, compacting from lack of use. And then... what if you want to customize the batt? We do that too :D
We make our batts to order because we make them for you. We think they are worth the wait and hope that you will too. Naturally, if you need something faster, let us know. We work magic, that's what we do :D
