Love mini skeins? Me too! I seem to collect them at every yarn show I go to, as sort of a momento. So since we aren't going to physical yarn shows, I thought I'd open up a new club

So, I've decided, as I've been crocheting a simple granny stripe blanket, to organise a mini club. I thought how nice it would be to have a little treat coming through the post each month, or to send a mini skein to brighten up someone's day. 

So - welcome to botanical yarn's mini skein club. You can sign up in advance, or you can pay month by month, whichever is best for you.

Once a month, a little eco friendly cardboard box will fall through your letterbox - so not collecting it from the delivery office, and there is the option to have it sent 2nd class royal mail signed for, or not signed for, the choice is yours. 

Clubs will dispatch around the 15th of every month. The price shown includes UK postage, but you can add as an extra signed for postage at the checkout. For international postage, please see the information at the checkout regarding the pricing to ship internationally. 

Fussy on your yarn choices? Me too. You can choose between four yarn bases:

It will be a 20g skein, so 

- 100% Bluefaced Leicester 4ply - 80m per 20g Hank 

- 75% Superwash Merino 25% Nylon 4ply  - 85m per 20g Hank

- 100% Superwash Merino DK - 50m per 20g Hank

- 75% Superwash Merino 25% Nylon DK - 45m per 20g Hank

I've put some ravelry links below for blanket patterns - but of course you could use the mini skeins for colourwork in a jumper/hat/gloves - or you could use it for heels and toes on socks..
