It’s Officially Official

Play at Life Fiber Arts, Tyrannosaurus Knits & Shameless Twist announce the launch of Tripping Yarn Balls – a collaborative sock yarn club with a Zodiac theme.

How does a collaborative yarn club work?

Like most yarn clubs, each month you’ll receive one sock yarn dyed in an exclusive colorway designed around a chosen theme (the Zodiac!) In a collaborative club, members get the chance to check out yarn from several dyers. We’ll use our own bases and dye methods and you get a great variety of yarns for a whole year!

Meet the Dyers!

Shameless Twist – Jodi uses a multitude of bases at Shameless Twist. Her most popular being the sturdy Obedience base, she’ll be kettle dyeing 4 exclusive colourways on this base for this club.

Tyrannosaurus Knits – Erin is a little obsessed with dinosaurs and will be contributing hand painted colorways on her dinosaur-themed bases – Oviraptor, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus and Ferocious.

Play at Life Fiber Arts – Chrystee is known for her Maki yarns dyed in long color repeats. She’ll be contributing Sockie Maki sets and other self-striping yarns on her Jest, Boundless and Jumping Joy bases.

Spots open on June 1 and stay open until June 30 or until spots are full. 12 and 6 months subscription options will be available. Instalments will be begin shipping in August and continue every month for a full year. The cost is $35 monthly including shipping to anywhere in the world.

Join our mailing list and we’ll let you know when spots are open!

    Hi – Have never joined a sock club before…do you just provide yarns, or are there patterns too? (I’m basically a toe-up sock knitter, so would only be interested in that style of pattern.) Thanks for any additional info you can provide – look forward to hearing from you!

      We absolutely do. Unfortunately, our sign ups are closed for the next 6 months, until we release the remaining 6 month spots for the second half of the year. Hope to see you then!
