Is there a pattern I receive each month with the yarn?
There will not be a dedicated pattern each month. Everyone loves to knit socks differently, and we wouldn’t want to waste your money on something you may or may not use. However, we have put together bundles on our Ravelry group giving suggestions for sock patterns. We will be adding to these bundles throughout the year!
Is there other fun notions that will go in these packages?
While we love stitch markers, pins, tins, and all the other knitting goodies, our theme for this sock squad is simple and affordable. Adding something each month raises the cost by almost $10, and that can change the price point for many people to be not so budget friendly. If you join for the yearly subscription you will receive a print of our beautiful drawing created by Ashley Jackson. And who knows, we may make something later in the year for a small additional charge for those who want it!
What type of yarns will we be getting?
You will be receiving 10 different types of yarn to try out. Two months have repeats but we promise to make those a little different. All yarns will be at least 100g and all will have some nylon content, except one month when we try out a non super wash yarn for super plush and cozy socks. This will be a great way for you to explore the difference between twists and fiber content. At least 2 yarns per quarter will have a coordinating mini skein.
What colorways can we expect?
All new ones! Each month we will be creating a new colorway specific to the yarn we will be using. You can expect seasonal colors and throughout the year we will be sticking with our earthy nostalgic vibe! Most months will be multi colored, but there are a few that will be dynamic semi solids.
Prizes? Did somebody say prizes?!
Oh the prizes we will have! Every quarter we will have a drawing for six prize winners, each worth $100! At the end of the year, we will be drawing one grand prize winner for a $500 Farmer’s Daughter Fibers gift card!
So how do I enter to win?
To enter you must finish all of your socks for that quarter, posting them all together on the Ravlery group thread. At the end of the year, we will have a separate thread for the grand prize where you will show off all 12 socks!
Can I participate in entering to win prizes with different yarns?
Prize entries are only for yarns from the Sock Squad subscription. However you can use other yarns for heals, toes, and stripes.
I just ordered some FDF, can I combine shipping with my sock squad yarn?
Unfortunately, no. We are small business with limited resources, this means that shipping and handling is done by one to two people. Having extra add on’s complicates things beyond what we can manage. So sorry!
I live in Canada or outside of the US. How much will shipping be?
Because we know we will be just sending one skein of yarn, we have been able to lower shipping costs for the sock squad to out of the US. Please choose the ‘Sock Squad International Shipping' for a rate of $8 Canadian and $12 otherwise.
Why yearly and quarterly subscriptions?
Yearly is going to get you the best deal, plus you will have the opportunity to enter to win the grand prize at the end of the year if you finish all of your socks! Quarterly subscriptions are for those who might be a little hesitant to commit for an entire year.
I have moved, how do I changed my address?
Any changes you need to make on your account (address, credit cards) you can do through ‘My Account’.
How can I manage or cancel my subscription?
Log into your account, click ‘My Account’ and then ‘Subscriptions’.
We can wait to see you in the Sock Squad!
