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.

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, NY –

Folktales in Lithuania

About This Years Club

Folktales in Lithuania Yarn Club

Lithuania (Eastern Europe) is rich in textiles. Over the years, we brought fellow knitters and designers to Lithuania with our bus tours. Since the pandemic hit in the year 2020, we have cancelled our tours for at least two years. We wanted to recreate some of the experience in a box as best we could. Each box will include a “gift” made and created in Lithuania from our fellow designers in Lithuania.

Folktales include: Frogs, Mermaids, Witches, Birds, Snakes

Each year we pick a theme for our Yarn Club. We change our themes in March of each year. Your subscription continues into the next theme until you cancel. We will notify your when we begin the change of themes and what they will be about. Cancel anytime.

With Knitting Designer, Donna Druchunas
Now in our 3rd year

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.

  1. 1
    Can I choose my fibers?

    Unfortunately you can not choose which yarn you receive in your box. All yarn will be 100% sheep yarn.
