To begin the celebration of summer, we teamed up with Michele Costa of Stitch and Hustle! Not only is Michele a designer in knit and crochet, but she is also the host and organizer of the nationwide fiber fun retreat series, Stitch Up! Whether it be through the events that bring our fiber community together or the countless free patterns on her blog, Michele is a light in our fiber community. This month she not only helped design each colorway, she also designed both featured membership patterns- a real treat for our subscribers! 

July’s theme is Color Splash - Red-hot poppy, bubblegum pink, dark magenta, silver, and teal find a home in this fun, exciting palette.​

During our Early Preview, we only show you the yarn that is coming in the next crate, and not the patterns or extras, so that you can make decisions about changing your color vibe or adding a crate for the new month! If you need help changing your vibe, you can watch the video below for more details or contact us by clicking here.

Remember: The option to swap your color vibe is only open between June 15-28 for these crates.


Now let’s squish the yarn!

This month’s featured Membership yarn is our URU.YARN Cotton Basic, a 100% Unmercerized Organic Pima Cotton. This yarn is a DK weight and each hank is 275 yards in length at 100g. The cotton is spun and plied in a 3 ply construction resulting in a very sturdy and breathable fabric.

This colorway is inspired by one of Michele’s favorite colors. With a melange tonal effect, this colorway perfectly represents all of Michele’s favorite shades of pink!

Chill Out: Stardust

A deep and tonal navy that reminds us of the dark night sky.

This multi tone gray is a nod to the busy streets and sidewalks that make up Michele’s favorite cities.
