Downside Up: A yarn club

June 16, 2015

With the Indie Shelf Project came a lot of requests from our not-so-local customers: could we somehow share the love?

Which sparked an idea. For a long time i've wanted to take part in amazing yarn clubs but found the international shipping to be a bit crazy. And so, just for our NZ & Australian yarnies: our very own. 

It goes on sale at 10am Thursday 9 July. There are strictly limited spaces, so be sure to put a reminder in your calendar!

The details:

Downside Up is a very special yarn club. We've recruited three amazing dyers from North America to kick things off. To follow, three special NZ dyers, all with exclusive colour ways just for us. You can sign up for either the Northern dyers or the local ones, or go all in and register for both. Each parcel will contain:

  • 100g approx of 4ply / fingering weight yarn dyed especially for us in an exclusive colour way
  • special treats worth at least $10

    Sign up options & prices:


    the first 3 months, all North American dyers
    NZ - $150 including shipping
    Australia - $154 including shipping 

    North & South

    all 6 months, North American dyers followed by NZ dyers
    NZ - $300 including shipping
    Australia - $308 including shipping

    Any leftover spots for South will go on sale in late September.

    The shipping dates are:
    (the North American yarns)

    • late July / early August
    • first week of September
    • first week of October

    (the NZ yarns)

    • first week of November
    • first week of December
    • second week of January

     Here's that link again. We wanted to give you lots of notice so you can start saving. If you have any questions, just give us a shout.

    Yippie Let the saving begin, how exciting I love all the yarn I see on podcasts and blogs but shipping is crazy. A european one would be fantastic too!

    Will there be any spots for just South? As a recent immigrant to NZ I would love to have some southern hemishere yarns.
