Welcome to SPIN?ALONG, Spin?Off’s fiber club—designed especially for having fun, learning stuff, and making yarn.
Enclosed you will find 4 ounces of fiber from distant realms:
You’ll also find an old-fashioned hanging letter scale, once used for weighing airmail letters (so as not to exceed the postal limits). Since most international mail today is sent via the internet rather than in those exciting pale blue tissue-thin stationery sheets with the red and white borders, you will have to think of other uses for your letter scale. Surely it will be useful for weighing an ounce of fiber! Plus, it’s cute.
You’ll also find some tempting coupons from a few of our loyal manufacturers.
Order today because supplies are limited! These will go fast so you don't want to miss your chance to get this great offer!
We wonder what you will do with your fiber. You could wax philosophical about blending the world into perfect harmony; you could make a memorial to the Falkland Island war, in which the Islands and Britain joined forces against Argentina (except that we didn’t give you any Argentine fiber); you could just have fun with the textures and subtle colors, and add other favorites from your stash at will. You could create a little pouch for your passport. You can do anything you want to!
Whatever you do, be sure to share. You will find a special forum on Spinning Daily. Just go towww.spinningdaily.com/forums/101.aspx. Post your comments, read what your fellow spinners are doing, post photos of your yarn or your finished (or half-finished) project. Of course, you can post on Ravelry or Pinterest or whatever you please, too. We’re saving a page in the Summer issue of Spin?Off to present some of the more interesting results (deadline March 31—yes, that’s right!)
What is the SPIN?ALONG Fiber Club?
Every 3-4 months we will bring you a brand new batch of fibers to try out ranging from sheep wool to alpaca to mohair to silk. This is the perfect opportunity to try out fibers you have been hesitant about or may have never heard of!
This is currently not a subscription based club*, so when you purchase the kit you are not signing up for any sort of long-term commitment. However, if you buy the kit now, you will be one of the first to learn about the next kit and will get first opportunity to order.
The next SPIN?ALONG package will be ready in about three months, and it will be completely different from this one. We hope you will stay with us. We do.
*Please note that we can in the future become a subscription based club, where you would be regularly charged for our kits and automatically sent the next kit when it is available. We are not set-up to do that at the moment. If we do move to a subscription based club we will have clear messaging to inform you. Any kit purchase before the subscription is put into place does not mean you will be automatically added to the subscription. You will be notified and will have the option of signing up at that time.
