Monument Valley National Park

Mystery Sock Club
Colorway 1 Inspiration

Monument Valley is located near the Utah-Arizona border.  The butte on the left is known as West Mitten Butte, and the one in the middle of the photo is East Mitten Butte.  Seems appropriate for a yarn business to base a colorway on.   

Heather has lived in "the west" a few times in her life, and even bicycled through parts of it.  Brenda has always loved "the west" and longs to return there.  No matter where our festival travels take us, "the west" calls to Brenda when she is driving, and our conversations go like this:


Heather: Turn west.
Brenda: I always like going west.

-or-

Heather: Turn east.
Brenda: But I want to go west!

CLUB DETAILS

 

How the club works:

  • We will be releasing a colorway every other month starting in July 2020. 

    • Initial Run releases will be July/September/November​

  • Each colorway will be a set of matching, 50-gram skeins

    • Dyed at the same time to create identical socks.​​

    • Dyed as skeins, not blanks.

  • 2 Buy-In options (both include shipping costs):

    • 1: You can pre-purchase all 3 colorways in 2020 for $99 

    • 2: You can pre-purchase 1 month at time for $36 a month

  • The colorway will be kept secret until it is shipped to those who have pre-purchased, we will give a teaser about our inspiration though. 

  • Extra skeins of each month's colorway can be ordered at a discount. Once you join you will be sent a link for ordering extra skeins.   

  • If you do not pre-purchase, there is no guarantee that additional skeins will be available. 

  • Those who pre-purchase all three colors in advance will also be given a code for 10% off additional online yarn purchases for the rest of the year. 

  • Brenda's Basic Toe-Up and Heather's Top-Down sock patterns will be used as the suggested patterns for this club due to the very active colorways. All participants will get free copies of these patterns. 

  • Yarns used will be our Kraken, Tuff Toes, Light Foot, or TargHeel.  We will dye each colorway on only 1 base.  It will depend on what is available at the time and what we think the colorway would work best on. 

The sample shown here is our “Meadow Sock” and was the inspiration for starting a club based on a matching set concept. 

Why just 3 colorways? 

That's just to start.  We want people to decide if they like the mystery part, or if we need to adapt the club to fit a different model (maybe shawl skeins too, but for now we're just doing matching 50/50 sets).
