The folks at Darn Good Yarn asked me if I wanted to test out their Yarn of the Month Subscription Box. Obviously I said yes, who says no to opportunities like that?
If you’re not familiar with the darn Good Yarn Subscription Box, here’s some info from their website:
“Not only is your yarn club subscription curated with unique eco-friendly yarn, but it also provides sustainable employment to over 100 women in India who hand-spin and hand-dye each and every skein of yarn.”
Awesome right? Wait, there’s more:
“If your knitting & crochet subscription box wasn’t already doing enough good in the world, your box helps employ a group of adults with developmental disabilities who package each yarn subscription box.”
So in addition to getting a box of Yarn Goodies every month you’re helping Darn Good Yarn empower a lot of people.
What’s in the Box?
- A skein of eco-friendly yarn made from recycled fibres
- A mystery gift (mine was a set of 5mm knitting needles and a crochet hook)
- A knitting and crochet pattern suitable for the yarn you receive
I didn’t receive any patterns in my box, I also couldn’t locate anything on their website that was specific to the Yarn of the Month Club. I’m not sure where to locate those patterns so I can’t say what they’re like.
What was the Yarn Like:
The pro, The yarn in my box was beautifully dyed, there’s nothing I love more than brightly coloured yarn. The con, there isn’t much of it. I made myself a cup cozy, I don’t know what else I could possibly make with 75 yards of yarn.
The Mystery Gift:
My Box included a set of 5mm knitting needles and a 5mm crochet hook in purple ombre They’re pretty and they work nicely, you can never have to many tools right?
The Yarn of the Month Subscription Box is a fun monthly surprise and it helps employ people that need employment. At $10 a month (if you sign up for the year) I think it’s worth the price tag. I definitely recommend checking them out, you can find their website here.
The folks at Darn Good Yarn have given me a a discount code good for 15% off your entire purchase, use BLACKROSESTITCHES15 at checkout to apply the discount.
