April 2022 Reveal


6 minute read

It’s time to reveal this month's yarns and patterns! April's theme is Conservatory.

Meet the yarns and our theme in this month’s full crate reveal on YouTube.

Retreat from the cold into the humidity of an overgrown conservatory. Tiled floors line your steps as you explore, lifting heavy foliage to discover the wonders of nature left to her own devices...

Knit & Crochet Club

This month we're indulging with Knitologie Wisp, a DK weight yarn made of 100% merino wool (non-superwash). Each 100g skein comes with a generous 236 yards (216 m), and your crate will include two skeins - ample yarn to bring your conservatory-inspired projects to life.

A constant in every garden, terracotta pots line shelves in haphazard stacks. The brightness of a new addition inspires this happy, fresh color.
