We’re warming up the season with this month’s clubs! Check out what to expect in your June club crates.
Meet the yarns and our themes in this month’s full crate reveal on YouTube.
Knit & Crochet Club Theme
A yarn store glimmers in the distance. As you get closer, you can make out shades of green, blue, red, and gray – which one will be right for your next project? The good thing about this mirage, though, is that it doesn’t disappear as you get closer. All of the yarn is at your fingertips, ready to be knitted or crocheted into your next creation. As the desert sun slips beneath the horizon, make yourself a cozy scarf or shawl to keep away the cold as the wind blows across the sand. We know you’ll love this month’s yarn and projects that call to mind a beautiful desert mirage.
For our Knit & crochet club this month, we are featuring some of your favorite knit and crochet artists from Spain! Special thanks to Clara Mateo who helped us coordinate the designs for this month as well as shared her talented photography with us.

This month’s yarn is the luxurious Vidalana Oasis, a mix of 50% Alpaca Wool, 25% Peruvian Highland/Merino Wool, and 25% Suri Alpaca. These three kinds of wool blend perfectly to create a yarn with beautiful drape that is oh-so-soft to the touch. Your crate comes with two matching skeins of DK weight yarn, each with 250 yds (229 m) / 100g. You won’t be able to resist including these silky-smooth fibers in your next project.
