What better way to kick off the fall than with a cozy sock knitting project? We teamed up with Violette Yarn Co. to treat our subscribers to a beautiful peacock-inspired sock yarn, and designed a lace-and-cable sock to show the yarn off to its fullest! To top it all off, we stuffed the boxes full of lots of fantastic extras. Our subscribers scored $48.97 worth of yarn + goodies!

The Yarn

We were proud to feature True North Strong Sock from Violette Yarn Co., a blend of 80% Bluefaced Leicester wool and 20% nylon, in our September box. This strong, lustrous blend is easy to care for and ideal for socks. Violette Yarn Co. developed this colorway exclusively for Yarn Crush so that it pairs perfectly with this month’s peacock-inspired knitting pattern. Retail value: $20.00
