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. A Yearly* 2022 Sock Subscription includes 1 Sock Yarn and 1 Mini Skein each month, a full-size 12 month calendar illustrated by Courtney Blazon (this is in a black and white coloring book style so no surprises on colors!) and a sock pattern by Dawn Harrell called 'Tenderfoot' which helps you fit a toe-up sock perfect for YOU!
*Quarterly Subscriptions do not include the Calendar or Sock Pattern (you can purchase these seperately in January), only yarn!
Sock Squad Sign Ups start November 18th through November 30th
Quarterly Sign Ups are the Following Dates:
Q2 February 24th to February 27th
Q3 May 26th to May 29th
Q4 August 25th 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 2021. 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 2022, 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, and enter to win prizes! Oh yes, we wouldn’t have another year of the sock without prizes! See the FAQ for more info. On Instagram you can use hashtag #fdfsocksquad_2022
Sock Squad Yarns
Throughout the year we will be rotating through 3 different yarn types and EACH month you will be getting a free coordinating 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. While we are using different Big Sky plants, animals, and landscapes for our inspiration you will get a variety of hues. Most will be earthy but expect a few flashy yarns!
Here are the yarns we will be using:
Pintler Sock :: Sturdy, easy to knit with, and long lasting!
75% Merino (super wash) and 25% Nylon, 4 ply
