A Year of Socks [Preorder]

We are so thrilled to launch our first ever Sock Box Subscription - just in time for Socktober! Subscribe today if you love knitting socks (as we do!) and can't wait to get your hands on some of the most stunning all-natural sock yarns (and notions!) out there. When you subscribe, you'll get four boxes: October, January, April, and July.

Each Sock Box includes 100g sustainable sock yarn, a set of stitch markers or progress keepers, a surprise haberdashery / joy-bringing item, and a pattern inspiration email.

For our October Sock Box, we've worked with...

  • ... Saskia from Ovis Et Cetera who has dyed up a stunning exclusive sock set (yes, you heard that right - it's the first box, so you get a bit more than our usual 100g of sustainable yarn in your Sock Box!)
  • ... Clara from Studio C Yarn who has created a beautiful set of stitch markers
  • ... Raissa from Raissa's Artworks, a Hamburg-based artist (and I'm not saying more because it would spoil the surprise!)

All the beautiful products in this first box were based on our inspiration story for October:

From Hanna Lisa: "Last fall, we went on a beautiful, calm fall walk through Lübars, a small village on the outskirts of Berlin. It sits in the middle of fields and a nature reserve, and the golden stalks of wheat and fountain grass were swaying in the wind.

The sky was a brilliant blue, almost translucent. On our way back through the village center, we admired the cobble stones and the old inn with its huge chestnut trees, the leaves just starting to turn.

When I first played with the idea of doing sock boxes, I knew that I wanted the fall one to reflect these colors, and the sense of calm and spaciousness I felt on that walk."

The exact products will be a surprise, but you can get a feeling for the color palette we're going for with the photos you see in this listing. Lastly - all the artists we've worked with are absolutely amazing, and you do not want to miss out on this box!

This is a preorder. All October Sock Boxes will ship out by the end of September.

PS: If you prefer to not use silk, we would recommend skipping the October Sock Box and keeping an eye out for our January one.

Do you have questions about our A Year of Socks [Preorder]?

We currently offer two different payment options for the Year of Socks Subscription:

1) Full 1-year payment with a 10% discount - you purchase the full year subscription (all four boxes) right away. This is great if you love knitting socks and getting to know new non-superwash, no-nylon yarns!

2) Quarterly payments without a discount - you reserve your box, but you can also pause or cancel the subscription up to 3 months before the shipping date. Payment renewals will be in October (for the January box), January (for the April box), and April (for the July box). Why so much in advance? Because all the items we're including in the boxes are made-to-order by small-batch artisans, and they (and we) need to plan and order materials.

If you have chosen the quarterly payment option, yes! You can pause or cancel the subscription up to 3 months before the shipping date.

We aim to ship out the boxes so that they arrive with you at the beginning of the "box month", i.e. October, January, April, and July. Unfortunately, shipping is still a bit unpredictable - if you're unsure about where your box is, please do get in touch with us!
