April 2020 KnitCrate Review – This squishy, superwash merino wool yarn has a touch of silver sparkle! Plus, don’t miss this exclusive coupon code, just for my readers.


KnitCrate is a monthly yarn subscription service, delivering high-quality, hand-dyed yarn to your doorstep.  They offer several different crates, with different types of yarn and projects. The crate shown in the video above is the KnitCrate Membership, which includes 2 skeins of premium yarn in the featured colorway, and 2 exclusive patterns (1 knitting pattern, 1 crochet pattern). All KnitCrates ship worldwide with free shipping and handling. Members also receive reward points and discounts towards future purchases.

Use Coupon Code “YAYFORYARN20” for 20% off your first KnitCrate.

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme is “Luminous”.  There are three different colorways available in the KnitCrate Membership for April: “Ruby”, “Lapis”, or “Diamond”, which I received.  It’s a solid colored yarn, in a warm, grey / beige color, with a bit of sparkle!

The yarn is URU.Yarns Sugared Sport, a soft, smooth, sport-weight blend of Superwash Merino Wool, Nylon, and Stellina, which gives the yarn a touch of sparkle.  I love how the sparkly silver filament glistens in the light.

KnitCrate Extras

All KnitCrate subscriptions include an extra, bonus item, and this month, it’s a packet of Soak Wash.  This no-rinse wash is perfect for delicate knitwear / crocheted items, especially yarns that are made of cashmere, wool, and cotton.  I have not tried this product yet, but I’m interested to see how it works.

The crate normally includes a small pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate.  This month, however, they weren’t able to get the booklets printed in time, so the patterns for the crate are available as a digital download.  The April crate includes 1 crochet pattern (Net Result Top) and 1 knitting pattern (Mic Drop Top) for the Membership crate.  For the Sock crate, there’s a sock knitting pattern (Crisscrossed Socks) and a crochet sock pattern (Hearth Socks).

I love the yarn in this crate, and I can’t wait to find the perfect project for it.  Stay tuned to see what I’ll make!

Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
