Working in collaboration with the very talented Sandi Kramer of SR Pepper Studios, designers Linette Grayum and Susan Sellers; we are pleased to announce the first ever Grandma's Mystery Dye Subscription! Inspired by the beautiful and unique insects 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 butterflies to beetles, Sandi uses her many years of experience as an artist in both Maryland and Tucson to bring the colors of the Southwest to life.
Each month 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 & one mini skein as well as a selection of local goodies that changes each month Initially; we will be offering 3 boxes over a 6 month time period, however depending on the popularity of the project we will also be exploring extending our subscription run. The boxes will ship on the first Monday of the month, and the subscription option will close the Sunday before the boxes ship.
We will be offering three different yarn subscription levels, and for our spinners a fiber subscription!
There will be two different yarn weight options and a crocheting / knitting option.
The bi-monthly 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 fingering weight + a mini skein, or one skein of worsted weight + a mini skein for $35. This box also contains a one time use coupon for 10% off one of Linette's patterns on Ravelry. Our second yarn option will be for $45, and includes either a skein of fingering weight + a mini skein or a skein of worsted weight + a mini skein, and your choice of either our exclusive knit pattern or crochet pattern. The third choice is $55 for either a fingering weight skein + a mini skein or a skein of worsted weight yarn + a mini skein, your choice of either the knit or crochet patterns (or both), a project bag and a pair of Mindful Scissors from Knitter's Pride. Each box will also include some mystery local goodies that will vary month to month. We are so excited to be working together to bring our love of the Southwest to our customers!

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
