I love this thick, squishy heathered yarn that I got in my KnitCrate this month!
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 at least 2 exclusive patterns (at least 1 knitting pattern, at least 1 crochet pattern). All KnitCrates ship worldwide with free shipping and handling. Members also receive reward points and discounts towards future purchases.

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme features festive, wintery colors. In the KnitCrate Membership for December, the crate includes 2 skeins of one of four different colorways: “Blue Spruce”, “Clementine”, “Black Cherry”, or “Triple Lux”, which I received.
The yarn is Vidalana “Heathered Chunky”, a Chunky weight Peruvian Highland Wool, hand-dyed in the beautiful heathered colorways featured. The colorway I received is a blend of soft grays and periwinkle blues. The texture is smooth, dense, and almost rope-like, but still soft and pliable.
This month, the crate included a small pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate. This booklet contains 1 crochet pattern (Snow Bonnet by Abbey Swanson), 1 knitting pattern, (Breaks in the Lines Cowl by Tina Tse), and a sock knitting pattern (Holiday Candy Socks by Myla Vayner). I love all of the beautiful photos and patterns in the booklet, but I am most excited about the extra bonus in this crate! Normally, the crate just includes the yarn and patterns, but this month, it included an adorable enamel pin that looks like a yarn ball with knitting needles through it! (Hint: it’s actually the KnitCrate Logo) How cute!
I can’t wait to make something from this beautiful yarn! I think I will make the Breaks in the Lines Cowl from the pattern booklet.
Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
Happy Yarning! 🙂
