I’ve long been a follower and newsletter subscriber of Speckled Finch Studios. Nina, the dyer behind the studio, is such an amazing artist with a keen eye for color. Many, many times, I’ve come so close to ordering yarn from her. Recently, I just couldn’t resist a purchase… Nina introduced the Yarn Bliss Box a little over a month ago and I just had to finally take the plunge….
What It Is
The Speckled Finch Studios Yarn Bliss Box is a monthly yarn subscription. Each month you get one, or two (your choice), skeins of yarn and some goodies. Also included in the box is a discount code for Nina’s shop, just in case you need more yarn.
The colorways in the Yarn Bliss Box are exclusive and won’t be dyed by Nina for a year.
Generally, I like to pick out my own yarn, instead of subscribing to such services. But since you can cancel anytime, I chose to try it for a few months. Because…why not?!
The April edition of the Yarn Bliss Box arrived just around the first of the month and was a delight to open. The theme: April Showers.
First off, the yarn. Oh my! I was so ecstatic with this colorway – muted pinks and greens…. I love this color combination and, as always, Nina has such a light, lovely touch with her dyeing. This is a lovely colorway.
The other goodies were rain drop stitch markers and a progress keeper….in the form of an umbrella!! These adorable markers were made by Firefly Notes Online. Also in the box was a beautiful sticker and a seed bomb – plant it and you’ll get some lovely wildflowers! How adorable is that?! (This was from Free Mountain Designs.)
I’ve already kept my subscription for May because, how can I not? Sure, I don’t need more yarn but yarn doesn’t expire and I’ll use it all eventually… Hopefully I live a long time and can just sit and knit away in my old age…. I digress.
There’s currently a wait list for the Yarn Bliss Box. If you’re at all interested, I suggest you join the wait list because I cannot wait to see what Nina comes up with in the coming months!
