Introducing the City Charm Yarn Club - Membership Extended through June 24th


Introducing the City Charm Yarn Club from A Yarn Less Raveled

After quite a bit of undercover planning, we are thrilled to announce our first yarn club, City Charm.  What makes this club special?  

  • Each custom variegated yarn color will be inspired by photos from our local area - Danville, Pleasanton, Walnut Creek, San Ramon, Dublin, Castro Valley, Livermore, and we’ll expand from there.  Each club package will feature a different local city and neighborhood where our community lives.

  • Ready to register?  Read the details below, then click here to purchase your membership online, or call or visit the shop.  Registration has been extended to June 24th.
  • It’s called City Charm because:

    • We’ve tried to capture the beautiful gifts of each city in our area, reflecting our diverse and loving community, in each variegated colorway.  

    • With each package of yarn, you’ll receive a unique, custom charm on a progress keeper, and you’ll be able to build a necklace of charms linked to our area.  You’ll receive your necklace in the first package, with your first charm.

    • The charms may be simple, whimsical, elegant, and all will have a link to our area. When you’re knitting or crocheting, you’ll always have a marker close by.

    • You may also find extra surprises in your package.

  • We are partnering with SpaceCadet Yarns, a popular yarn company that offers lovely yarns in an array of colors.  Stephanie and her team are creative in their color choices, and your yarn will be custom dyed and exclusive for our club members.  Your custom necklace and charms will be provided by LO & Behold Designs.

  • A limited number of spaces will be available in our inaugural offering of this Yarn Club, so you’ll be in on something very special.  

    • We will open the registration on Saturday, June 9 at 10am, and close registration at the end of the day on Sunday, June 24, or as soon as the initial spaces are filled.  Click here to purchase your membership online, or call or visit the shop.

    • Once filled, we will review and open a limited number of spaces again in December.  If you are already a member, you’ll be the first offered the opportunity to renew!

    • You won’t want to miss a package of this wonderful combination of City Charm yarns, charms, and treats, expanding your yarn inspiration, your local charm collection, and your community connection.

    • Consider sharing this club with family and friends who’ve moved away and still love the Bay Area!  It’s a great gift for a birthday, Mother’s Day, the winter holidays, and just because!

  • In each package, along with your custom yarn and charm, you’ll receive a card sharing our inspiration for that colorway and charm, dyer’s notes, and some pattern suggestions to spark your inspiration.

  • The longer you participate in the City Charm Club, the more locally-inspired yarn and charms you’ll collect.  You won’t want to miss a package!


How Will the City Charm Yarn Club Work?

Custom variegated colors and charms will be designed especially for you every two months.  You may either pick up your `package at the shop, or we can ship them to you anywhere in the United States (we are not shipping internationally at this time).

Each registration period will cover six months of membership, with three packages (every two months).  For this first club offering, you’ll receive your packages in July, September, and November 2018.  We’ll open the next registration period in December, just in time for holiday gifts!

You will have several choices to customize your City Charm club membership.  Your final cost will be based on this combination of options, so you can choose an option that works for you.  Click here to purchase your membership.

  1. Yarn Weight - you may choose all Fingering/Sock weight yarns (you’ll receive a variety of bases, all with Merino wool, some blended with other fibers such as bamboo, cashmere, or nylon), or a Sport/DK weight option, where the packages will alternate between these two weights, both in a Superwash Merino.  

    1. Yardage for fingering weights: range from 350 to 490 yds per skein.  

    2. Yardage for Sport: 270 yds per skein.  

    3. Yardage for DK: 230 yds per skein.

  2. Number of Skeins per Package - you may choose to receive one, two, or three skeins per package.  

    1. Consider what you might make - shawls, socks, hats, sweaters, etc., and order enough to work with.  

    2. If you want more than three skeins per package, sign up for two memberships.  

    3. Remember, these yarn colorways will not be available again, though we may offer complementary colors in the same yarn base (at an additional cost) to supplement your package.  Let us know if that’s something you’d like.

  3. Pick up or Ship - you’ll let us know whether you’ll want to pick up your packages at the shop or have them shipped to you anywhere in the US.  We will offer special pick-up times for members to get together, sharing your excitement for the newest package!

The Fine Print

We are investing time and creativity into selecting an array of color combinations and charms based on our local area, and hope you’ll love every package.  We want you to be aware of your commitment to this process:

  • Yarn Club pricing is based on your selections above and current retail yarn and charm pricing.  We will not increase fees during your paid membership period, even if our costs increase.

  • Yarn Club membership is non-refundable and non-exchangeable for the duration of your six-month membership.  

    • If your yarn color doesn’t excite you, perhaps it will excite a dear friend or family member and can become a lovely gift.

    • If an item in your package has a manufacturer’s defect, we will replace the item.

  • Yarn Club products are final sale.

  • If you signed up for the option to ship your package and would like to pick it up instead, we will give you a store credit for your shipping fees. 

  • If you usually pick up your package and would like it shipped to you, we will request payment of shipping fees at the current shipping rate before sending it to you.
