October 2019 Early Preview

Take a sneak peek at what's coming in next month's crates! Our Early Preview showcases the upcoming month's yarn but does not reveal the patterns or extras included in your crate. 

Remember that if you join today (or any day up until October 1), you will begin with the September Subscription Crate.

As of today we are in the Early Preview window until September 25th, and you may also edit your colorway vibe at this time! Here is a video to help you do so. 

The theme this month is Journey to Peru. For those of you who may not know, one of our mill partners is in Peru and we love working with them--they have a wonderful textile history and are always making waves in textile production and manufacturing in regards to fair trade, human rights, and environmental protections! Peru is also a beautiful country with astounding landscapes and architectural treasures. We're celebrating it all with this month's colorways, yarns, and extras, and every dollar that you spend with KnitCrate also supports the work of the many Peruvian mill workers who manufacture, dye, label, and ship our yarns.

Membership Crate

This month's yarn base is new from Vidalana. Vidalana Ascendance is a 100% Fine Peruvian Highland Woool, spun to sport weight with 328 yards, that can be knit comfortably at both DK and worsted weight gauges for a more open, lightweight, and lofty fabric. Each crate contains 2 skeins of one of these colorways.

Vibe: All Natural // Colorway: Broken Stones

Vibe: Energize Me // Colorway: Ancient Ruin

Vibe: Chill Out // Colorway: Tassel

Sock Membership Crate

This month's sock base is new from Knitologie. Knitologie Cabled Sock is another cable plied sock yarn (our newest obsession for durability and hard wearing socks), but this time in 75% Superwash Merino Wool, and 25% Nylon for a more 'traditional' base than last month's yarn. Each skein is fingering weight with 440 yards. Each crate contains 1 skein of one of these colorways.
