*This is a pre order. Please order separately as this box will ship at the beginning of June. All orders placed at the same time will ship with the summer box.**

This year feels like a return to a kind of normality. All of the usual markers throughout the year are here again. Flower shows, sports events, festivals and local celebrations.

For us, one of the big events of the year that we always look forward to is Wimbledon fortnight. It means summer. The pop of the ball on the racquet, the ease of long summer days, blue skies, strawberries and long, cool drinks.

This year we are putting together a yarn box to celebrate summer. The Vintage Midsummer Yarn Box will have a vintage twist. So if you love yarn and you love vintage, you'll love this celebration of summer box!

The idea is that you will begin opening your box at the beginning of the Wimbledon Championships on June 27th and continue opening a parcel a day until finals day on July 10th. 

Each day you will open a numbered parcel. So you can pour yourself a cup of tea, a long cool drink or perhaps a Pimm's and sit down to relax and open a parcel a day over the Wimbledon fortnight.

The yarn colourways will reflect the joys of summer.

There is the option to add on a small drawstring pouch. There will be a limited number of hand embroidered drawstring pouches. 

The box contains the following:

  • 100g skein 
  • 8 x 20g mini skeins  
  • lavender bag
  • 3 small vintage parcels
  • French soap

Please see notes below on shipping and packaging

100g skein on our Platinum sock base.

8 x 20g mini skeins - each individually wrapped in tissue, then put into a little numbered fabric pouch

Sweet lavender pouch. 

125g bar of La Savonnette Marseillaise soap.  Vegan and cruelty free. Paraben-free, silicon-free, pigment-free and enriched with organic shea butter.

Three vintage parcels containing some vintage fabric perfect for slow stitching and some vintage china.

Your goodies will come in a sturdy gift box made from eco friendly materials and recyclable although you'll want to keep it for a project or for storing precious bits and pieces.

A little note about packaging...we take great care to ensure that our packaging is as environmentally friendly as we can make it while ensuring that your purchase arrives with you in perfect condition. Our tissue paper in the box is printed with soy based inks on FSC certified paper and is fully compostable, recyclable and made from recycled materials. Our stickers are also printed on acid free paper using soy-based inks, and are FSC certified. The packaging in the box is fully recyclable. The eco sellotape that we use that is plant based, contains no plastic and is fully compostable. The packing bag is fully recyclable as is the gift box. The bubble wrap that we use to protect your box is also recyclable but why not reuse it?
