A monthly delivery of a range of fabulous non-nylon sock yarns, hand-dyed by us in West Wales in a range of colourways and dyeing styles. Subscriptions can run for 3, 6 or 12 months, and as with all Triskelion yarn clubs, they can be paused, restarted or cancelled at any time.
The current yarn bases are Peruvian Highland and Corriedale with plans for organic Merino, but we’re always on the lookout for new bases. In the past wool fibres have included BFL, Gotland and Masham, along with other fibres such as alpaca, mohair, bamboo, cotton and linen. We expect to include some of these again as they become available.
Most of the yarns will be a 2- or 3-fold sock weight construction (2/7Nm and 2/8Nm, i.e. 4-ply/fingering/sport range), some with a high twist, with a DK or two thrown in for decent boot socks. A couple will probably be luxury-type sock yarns for lounging around in at home, and we have plans for a bamboo yarn and a wonderful organic cotton and linen yarn for lightweight summer socks.
All of these will be hand-dyed here in Talog in a range of colourways, some semi-solids and some variegateds, using low-impact acid dyes.
Subscriptions can run for 3, 6 or 12 months, and as with all Triskelion yarn clubs, they can be paused, restarted or cancelled at any time. You can pay via PayPal or Stripe at the checkout, but we highly recommend using Stripe, as it gives you far greater control over your payment times and dates. Payments made in one calendar month will be for the delivery in the next calendar month (e.g. July’s payment will be for August’s yarn) and delivery is usually at the end of the second week of the month. You can put your subscription on pause at any time by going to the My Account page on the Triskelion website and following the instructions, or restart or cancel a subscription in the same manner. If you pay via Stripe, you can also change the day of the month when your subscription payment is made.
