Knit & Crochet Club + Sock Club Theme
This month’s Indulge theme is all about treating yourself to the luxurious yarn that you deserve so that you can immerse yourself in squishy fiber decadence. Our designs this month are the perfect mix of sophisticated and comfortable that are sure to fly off your needles and hooks. Take the time to spoil yourself and engage in some self-care, because you’re worth it. And what better way to indulge than with a few new skeins of yarn?
KnitCrate Knit & Crochet Club
It’s time to indulge yourself with our decadent yet comfortable yarn this month. You’ll love the cozy elegance of Audine Wools Mellow, a squishy mix of 80% Alpaca and 20% Tencel that comes in two rich and velvety colorways. Each skein is 125 yds (114 m)/100g of bulky yarn to plump up your yarn stash and delightfully create your next projects.

Members will receive 2 matching skeins in one of these 2 colorways.

Mimosa: The crisp, bubbly taste of a mimosa comes to life with this taupe colorway with muted orange undertones, sure to delight you from the very first sip – or stitch.
Please Note: In an effort to work with our partner mill to move up production for future months, some of our originally planned colorways are not being produced. You may see pattern samples made in some of these not-produced colorways.
