NOTE: These changes will not take effect until April 3, 2018
Knitologie Sock becomes Membership Sock
We have a few announcements to make! First, the name of our Knitologie Socks crate is changing to Membership Sock. Expect to still get fantastic Knitologie branded sock yarns, but also a variety of other sock yarns from our in-house brands, similar to Membership Crate. This kit is $19.95 per month and includes a skein of custom milled yarn and an exclusively designed pattern.
Sock Crate becomes Sock Artisan Crate
Our beloved Sock Crate is getting a name change! In order to group it into the Artisan Crate family, it’s being renamed ‘Sock Artisan Crate’. It will still feature a skein of yarn from small or independent yarn companies or dyers, extras, and an exclusively designed pattern.
Pricing Increases on both Artisan & Sock Artisan Crates
New subscribers as of April 3 will pay a new rate for Artisan Crate and Sock Artisan Crate (formerly Sock Crate). These slight pricing increases are due to a few different factors (shipping increased this year, the cost of some of our materials have gone up a little), but the big one, and most important reason for this change, is so that we can continue to treat our dyers fairly when negotiating the awesome deals that we secure for you month after month.
Wool, and superwash wool in particular, has increased in cost in the past few years. Previously, we were asking our dyers to give us a small amount off their standard wholesale price, but with the increase in wool cost, we had to ask for larger discounts to stay within the pricing of each crate. This just didn’t seem fair – our dyers work really hard and deserve to be paid accordingly. While we will continue to give our members a great deal, this pricing increase allows more dyers to participate in our crates.
Here are the details
Current Subscribers will receive April at the old price & May at the new prices.
New subscribers (April 3 forward), will be billed at these new prices.
will increase from $34.99 to $39.99
Note: the retail value of this crate is $65.50
(formerly Socks Crate) will increase from $23.99 to $27.99
Note: the retail value of this crate is $36.50
While we hope that all of our members will be okay with these slight changes, we know that budgets are tight. That’s why we continue to offer our Membership Crate and have recently changed Knitologie Sock to Membership Sock. Both of these crates are great for knitters and crocheters on a budget: Membership Crate is only $24.99 and Membership Sock is only $19.99.
Again, our current subscribers will have one more month at the old pricing before they need to decide. This gives you all of April to choose if you want to continue or change your subscription. New subscriptions from April 3rd forward will be billed at these new prices.
We love sending you beautiful yarn every month, and thank each and every one of you for allowing us to share our passion for fiber and crafts with you! If you have any questions at all, feel free to join us for discussion in the Ravelry thread dedicated to this topic.
