I know there are a million yarn clubs and subscription boxes out there, but there’s nothing like this! I’m combining art, writing, teaching, patterns, and surprises for you all in one box.

Vermont Yarn Club - Lithuanian Folktales 17

Some of the designs, especially when used in particular combinations and in certain colors, are uniquely Lithuanian, while other patterns are ubiquitous, found wherever stranded color knitting is made. Although many designs may seem to be arbitrary or purely abstract, the shapes actually have meaning in the context of Lithuanian folk art dating back to the Stone Age.

I hope you’ll join me in my quest to make beautiful designs.

Can I choose my fibers?

Unfortunately you can not choose which yarn you receive in your box. All yarn will be 100% sheep yarn. Montadale Cross | Dorsett/Finn | East Friesian | Romney | Some yarn may be blended with Alpaca.

“I told my husband that your stuff is so wonderful.The yarn is beautiful. The kits are so wonderfully thought out, and presented so beautifully plus all the hard work you put into the instructions and booklets. Your kits teach us about the world. And the Zoom class. No one does that. You make sure we knitters know what we are doing so we don’t have a closet or plastic boxes full of zip lock bags with yarn in them. You help us! “

– Denise, New York
