A Fiber of the Month Club

Each month, from January to October, you will receive 2-6 ounces (57-170g) of either hand dyed or natural colored fiber PLUS a pattern.

Many fibers will be luxurious and hand dyed in new colorways** (or if a standard colorway then the dyed fiber is not usually available). Some fibers will be left undyed so you can enjoy their natural beauty.

All patterns will be chosen as a complement with the particular month's fiber &/or especially created for this club. How to join.

" ...was browsing and saw all the fibers for Fondle This! and subscribed. That is the kind of fiber club for me! New and different things that I might have considered ordering, but would easily talk myself out of. I like also that you send a project's worth of fiber. Most of the other fiber clubs really require double-dosing in order to get anything worthwhile from them. I'm hoping to convince some of my spinning friends to subscribe too, because that would be more fun for me." Shelley W

"I want you to know that I absolutely love your fiber club. Its my fave of all my clubs. I love that you include a pattern and I love that its affordable. I also love that its monthly. I just love everything about it! You have a customer for life with me! "Linda

"Your club is my 'luxury' treat each month ;). I prep lots of fiber for myself, but I love yours to just mindlessly spin. And I send the knitting patterns onto a friend since I still haven't progressed past cell phone holders and scarves ;)." Heather
