The FDF Sock Squad is a subscription based sock yarn club. The week before each month begins you will receive a limited edition hand dyed sock yarn that is carefully curated by us. We have 2 different types of subscriptions this year, our regular Sock Squad and the Farm to Needle Sock Squad. Read about both below.
Sock Squad Sign Ups start November 13th and goes until November 30th.
Quarterly Sign Ups Are the Following Dates:
Q2 February 21st to February 27th
Q3 May 23rd to May 29th
Q4 August 22nd to August 28th
You will receive your yarn about a week before the month starts, that way you can cast on right away!
Important note about billing: PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE READ Because we want to send out yarns right before the first of the month, billing will begin in November of 2020. This means, in November you will be paying for January, then in December you will be paying for February, and so on! The billing for yearly subscriptions will end in October of 2021 but you will receive yarns through December. So yes, you will have paid 2 months before receiving your first yarn, this is the only way we can plan, dye, and ship Sock Squad out.
Sock Squad will be hosted on The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers Ravelry Group ‘The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers Sisterhood’! You can ask the group questions, chat with other Sock Squad members, share your projects, but mostly enter to win prizes! Oh yes, we wouldn’t have a year of the sock without prizes! See the FAQ for more info. On Instagram you can use hashtag #fdfsocksquad_2021
Sock Squad (Regular Subscription)
This year for Sock Squad we will be rotating through 3 different yarn types and EACH month you will be getting a mini skein! We wanted to slim down the selection so just in case you didn't make it to the socks, you would have 4 yarns that are the same base and a better selection in your stash. Each color is one-of-a-kind and we love to get creative with what we are offering. Sometimes earthy, sometimes flashy! Here are the yarns we will be using:
Pinlter Sock :: Sturdy, easy to knit with, and long lasting!
75% Merino (super wash) and 25% Nylon, 4 ply
463 yards/100g :: Minis 92 yards/20g
Highwood Sock :: Soft, cushy, and beautiful twist!
80% Merino (super wash) and 20% Nylon, 2 ply
400 yards/100g :: Minis 80 yards/20g
Bear Paw Sock :: Sturdy, Perfect Stitch Definition, and Yak Provides Rich Colors
70% Merino (super wash), 20% Yak, and 10% Nylon, 3 ply
437 yards/100g :: Minis 87 yards/20g
Price for Sock Squad Regular :: $24 per month for a yearly subscription or $31 per month for a quarterly subscription (the value of a hand dyed sock yarn + mini skeins is $37)
Sock Squad (Farm to Needle)
We know that not every yarn fits everyone's taste. So this year we wanted to offer a Farm to Needle Sock Yarn! This means all of these yarns are grown and/or milled in the USA! Each month will be a new type of yarn. Some will be non-Superwash, some will be Superwash. Some will have nylon, others won't. But they will all be incredibly special yarns, hand dyed by us! You can expect anything that is non-Superwash to be dyed in tonal solids. Less speckles and more of that earthy look. This subscription is extra special, so space is limited!
Price for Sock Squad Farm To Needle is $34 per month for a yearly subscription, no quarterly subscription will be offered at this time.
You will be charged on the first day that you sign up, and after that your recurring payment will happen the 25th of each month. Make sure to sign up for our FDF Tokens to earn rewards + our Newsletter to stay up to date!
