We are excited to partner with Kelbourne Woolens on the launch of their 2020 Year of Gifts, featuring a new kit each month with yarn, pattern and notions to complete a small project perfect for gifting (to yourself or someone else!).
Each month Kelbourne Woolens will release a new design and project kit that features one of the six current yarns in the Kelbourne Woolens collection. The 12 designs will range from hats to socks to home goods. Each project will call for 100 grams of yarn or less. Kits will include the pattern and supplies needed to create the project, as well as notions specific to each project.
Northfield Yarn will receive a limited number of project kits each month, but we don't find out what the month's design will be until the month begins, so there will be some mystery throughout the year! Individual patterns will go on sale to the public on Ravelry on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. Project kits, which contain all the supplies, plus a pattern code to download the pattern, will go on sale as soon as we receive them in the shop.
Pre-orders are now available for the January Year of Gifts kit to make the Snowdrop Hat, a new two-color pattern featuring one of our favorite KW yarns, Andorra. Snowdrop Hat kits will be available in the shop for pick-up on or after January 21st.
What's included in the Snowdrop Hat project kit?
- 1 skein of Andorra in Snow White
- 1 skein of Andorra in Ink Black
- 1 custom leather Kelbourne Woolens hat tag
- 2 Perennial windings (natural and black)
- Year of Gifts (YOG) logo sticker
- Postcard with individual pattern download code. The code allows you to download the pattern for FREE after its release on January 21st.
We are also offering a 6-month subscription to the Year of Gifts. Subscribers get early notification of kit releases and may choose their favorite six of the twelve 2020 kits, including the January kit. Pay for five kits and get the sixth free, a $40 savings!
Why purchase a 6-month subscription?
- Guaranteed a kit for six of the twelve projects. As a subscriber, you will have prepaid for 6 designs of your choice from the Year of Gifts.**
- Six kits for the price of five! Individual kits will retail for approximately $40, so by purchasing a 6-month subscription you are receiving six kits for the price of five!
- Early notification of new designs. Each month, you will receive early notification about the design that will be released that month. You will then have the option to take that month's kit as one of your 6, or wait for the next design to be announced.
What's included in the project kits?
- A printed postcard with a free pattern download code for that month's pattern.
- Kelbourne Woolens yarn for completing the project.
- Unique notions that are specific to each project. Notions will vary from month to month, but will include such items as stitch markers, a Kelbourne custom leather tag, woven label, and Soak wool wash.
- A muslin project bag to hold your project supplies.
