Monthly Mystery Yarns are back in a new way!
For $12/month ($11 for the Worsted option!) plus shipping, get two mini skeins for your colorwork, scrappy, or striped projects!
Shipping for the 3 and 6 month option is cheaper for you since we discount the 3rd month cost for the 3 month listing and the 4th-6th months for the 6 month listing are free. Shipping will be shown as Priority Mail during checkout for the 3 and 6 month options but will be shipped First Class with tracking. Priority Mail is only shown in order to correctly charge the rate.
One mini skein with be exclusive to the month, the other will be a recreatable colorway that will be added to the shop the following month and you'll get a special $5 off coupon for your future purchase of 1 or more full skeins! (Coupon won't be applicable to last chance, clearance, sales, clubs, or subscriptions.)
Make sure you're following @shipwreckedsheep on Instagram so you'll know when it opens each month or purchase the 3 or 6 month option to ensure you don't miss out on the limited quantities.
These will have limited quantities of each base due to yarn supply chain issues, to ensure we can deliver on time.
This is not an auto renewal subscription.
**Any in stock or dye to order yarns bought in the same order will ship at the same time. If you wish for in stock yarns to ship earlier, please place a separate order.**
February mini skeins will be available until February 10 and will ship February 15, 2021.
Currently the 6 month listing includes February through July.

Recommended washing instructions: Hand wash with cool water and wool wash. Lay flat to dry.
All Shipwrecked Sheep yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes. I do my absolute best to rinse all yarns multiple times so that no excess dye remains in the yarn before drying. You may still notice a small amount of color bleeding the first couple of times you wash your project, despite all measures taken to prevent this.
Due to the way hand dyed yarn is made, no two skeins of the same colorway are exactly the same and different yarn bases take dye differently. If your project requires using more than one skein of the same colorway, I recommend alternating skeins.
I use a professional camera and natural or professional lighting to capture colors as accurately as possible, as well as editing software to make minor color adjustments to make sure the photo is as close as possible to the actual yarn, but due to the differences in every person's monitor, the yarn may appear slightly different.
All yarns are hand dyed in a smoke-free and pet-friendly home. Pets are not allowed near the yarn, dyeing or drying areas, or storage or packing areas. I do my absolute best to keep my inventory safe from random pet hairs, but I cannot entirely guarantee they will be.
