The Spectral Collection is a monthly hand dyed yarn collection that celebrates the lives and stories of current and historic women authors from the horror, speculative fiction, and science fiction genres.

This listing is for Carson DK: 100% Superwash Merino; 250 yards / 115 grams per skein

November's author is known largely for her remarkable poetry, but dig a little further and you will find a speculative/utopian feminist novel which explores gender, class, and racial and social hierarchies: Marge Piercy's "The Woman on the Edge of Time." 

Piercy is another prolific (yet underrated!) author, feminist, and activist who has written historical fiction, poetry, essays, and speculative and science fiction. Her work explores topics such as social and class issues, gender, environmentalism, and Jewish mysticism. 

To get in the mood for this month's club, try: "The Woman on the Edge of Time," "He, She and It" or "The Moon is Always Female"

How the Yarn Club Works

Each month a different author is highlighted with a mood board that will guide the limited, surprise colorway. 

Choose your yarn base from three options: Sock (Solnit)DK (Carson) or dark & dramatic Yak Sock (Ursula).

A little themed surprise will be included each month, and you're encouraged to read along with the month's author (whether you participate in the yarn portion or not!)

Sign-ups occur for one week and ship early next month.

When Do I Get My Club?

Your club package will ship (or be ready for pick up) the week of November 9th.

Signups will close when all slots are full, or, at 11:59pm EST October 22, 2020.

The Book Club!

All are welcome to discuss each month’s author and stories, WIPs, or any other little bookish yarny thing in the virtual book club meetup held after the club is released. Details on how to join will go to all newsletter subscribers.

Sliding Scale

Yarn and needlecrafts are therapeutic and should be accessible to all. If you are experiencing financial hardship, the following discount codes offer a sliding scale for the club if you need it - no questions asked.

SPECTRAL10 to receive the club at 90% of regular price
SPECTRAL20 to receive the club at 80% of regular price

Pittsburgh Pick Up

If you'd like to pick up your yarn club instead of receiving it in the mail, use code PGHPORCH at check out, and I'll reach out when it's ready to to coordinate a pick up time with you (in Greenfield, between Squirrel Hill and Hazelwood!) 

NOTE: There's an issue with the cart where you can only apply one code. If you're using another code for pricing and would also like to pick up, you can enter PGHPORCH in the Notes field instead, and I'll refund the shipping fee. Thank you!
