Please join us for a year of Colors and Cowls; inspired by the beautiful Arizona Flora!

Working in collaboration with the very talented Sandi Kramer of SR Pepper Studios and designer Linette Grayum (knitwithlinette); we are pleased to announce Grandma's Mystery Subscription Prescription is back! We want to thank everyone who participated in our inaugural run, and thank you all so much for your feedback and support.

Inspired by the beautiful and unique flowers of the Southwest, our in-house dyer Sandi Kramer has created a series of hand dyed yarns and fibers that celebrate the hidden beauty that is only found in the Sonoran Desert. From flora to fauna, Sandi uses her many years of experience as an artist in both Maryland and Tucson to bring the colors of the Southwest to life. 

Linette is a recent full time transplant to Tucson, but she has been a familiar face in the shop for the last several years as a winter visitor. Originally from Germany, Linette has 6 years of experience as a published designer and has a full collection of patterns available on An avid mountain climber, Linette has blended her love of the outdoors with her newfound love of the desert to create three beautiful and unique patterns that are good for knitters and crocheters of all levels. 

In each box, Sandi will merge her love of the Southwest and dyeing into a beautiful, one of a kind vision that is sure to delight every palate. Each box will contain one full skein of yarn, a pattern code and a carefully curated selection of local goodies.

We will be offering 4 boxes over a 9 month time period, starting in March. The boxes will ship on the first Tuesday of the month, and the subscription option will close the Sunday before the boxes ship.

We will be offering two different yarn subscription levels, and for our spinners a fiber subscription! 

The quarterly  fiber subscription option will be $35 and will include a 4oz braid of hand dyed 50/50 Merino/Silk blend.

For our yarn people, we know that there are those of you who love to design your own patterns so we are offering the choice of one skein of hand dyed fingering weight for $35. This box also contains a one time use coupon for 10% off one of Linette's patterns on Ravelry.

The other choice is $55 for a hand dyed fingering weight skein, a Ravelry code for Linette's knit and crochet patterns, a project bag and a thoughtfully curated selection of regional goodies that changes with every box. 

Each box will also include some local goodies that will vary month to month. We are so excited to be working together to bring our love of the Southwest and our desert to our customers!

"I discovered Grandma's Spinning Wheel yarn store when I moved to Tucson two years ago.  I have always wanted to try a yarn subscription and thought that "Grandma's Mystery Prescription Subscription" would be the perfect opportunity.  I can't praise this subscription enough with words!  Every other month I receive the most beautifully hand-dyed yarn, a free pattern, and other lovely yarny gifts.  I highly recommend checking out Grandma's Spinning Wheel, the local candy shop for yarn aficionados!"- Rachel Wisdom
