March Membership Crate Update

Due to major delays with one of our partner mills, we are unable to send out the Audine Wools Romance yarn originally scheduled for our March 2021 Membership crates. In its place, we will be sending the yarns detailed below. For more information about this and other recent changes at KnitCrate, please see this post.

And now…the yarns!

Our heads turn to the skies this month to watch the celestial show as moonlight gives us our theme. Wispy clouds and contrasting hues gather and shift through texture and openwork reminiscent of stars pinpricking the heavens.

Heavenly bodies are the inspiration behind Vidalana Celestial, a divine blend of 90% Alpaca and 10% Tencel. This worsted weight blend comes in 100g skeins, each with 150 yds (137m) for your accessories and garments. Your Membership Crate will arrive with 2 matching skeins this month.

This month, if you choose either the Energize Me and Chill Out color vibes, you will receive two identical skeins of one of the vibe’s featured colorways. All colorways will be available for individual sale during our Double Down sale. If you order multiple crates and would like them to be the same colorway, please email us using the HELP button at the top of our website. While we cannot guaranteed that matching colorways will be sent with multiple crates, we will make every effort to do so.

Energize Me Colorways

Members choosing this vibe will receive 2 matching skeins in one of these three colorways.

image

Europa: This bright, rusty orange reminds us of the reddish tones found on Europa, the icy moon of Jupiter.

image

Amalthea: Jupiter’s deep red moon. Amalthea, gives its name to this colorway with both orange and bright pink undertones.

image

Deimos: The dark red tones of Mars’ second moon, Deimos, cast a pink hue on its surface. Along with orange undertones, we’ve captured the shade of the moon in this colorway by the same name.

Chill Out Colorways

Members choosing this vibe will receive 2 matching skeins in one of these three colorways.

image

Callisto: The icy surface of Jupiter’s eighth moon calls to mind this deep turquoise shade that is the darkest of this month’s Chill Out vibe.

image

Titan: This lighter turquoise shade has us thinking of the icy surface and bodies of water found on Saturn’s largest moon.  

image

Phobos: This warm purple shade is inspired by the combination of gray and red tones found on the first moon of Mars, Phobos.

image


All Natural Colorway

Members choosing this vibe will receive 2 matching skeins in this colorway.

image

Ganymede: A dark gray that compliments our other colorways well, this colorway celebrates the deep stone grays with hints of blue found on this Jupiter moon.
