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 Solnit Sock: 75% Merino; 25% Nylon 463 yards / 100 grams per skein

September's inspiration comes from the life and work of British author, feminist, lesbian, and pacifist Violet Paget, who published haunting and supernatural tales under the pen name Vernon Lee while preferring to wear men's clothing over women's Victorian fashion.

Suggested titles to get in the mood: "A Phantom Lover," "The Virgin of the Seven Daggers," or any anthology of her ghost stories. If you're feeling more experimental, try out "Satan the Waster: A Philosophic War Trilogy" written in response to the rise of nationalism before World War I. 

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 September 6th.

Signups will close when all slots are full, or, at 11:59pm EST August 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 in September (more details TBA!)

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!
