This blue and lavender speckled hand-dyed yarn is so pretty! Plus, don’t miss this exclusive coupon code, just for my readers.
Hand-dyed speckles are my favorite!
I love just about any hand-dyed yarn, but I am particularly fond of speckles. The gentle sprinkling of color is so delicate and pretty!
These speckles are my favorite thing about the new yarn I got in my KnitCrate Subscription this month. All of the blues and purples remind me of violets and forget-me-nots!

Each month’s crate has a theme, and this month’s theme is “Once Upon A Yarn”. The yarns for this crate showcase lots of spring colors. All of the yarns for the membership crate are speckle-dyed, on a creamy-white base yarn. There are three colorways available, including one with orchid, pink, and orange speckles, and one with sage, khaki, and brown speckles. I got the “Sky” colorway, with cobalt, purple, and sky blue speckles.
The yarn is Audine Wools Shine Sport, a smooth, squishy, sport weight blend of Superwash Merino Wool and Tencel. It has a lovely softness, with a little bit of sheen from the Tencel fiber. The yarns were designed in collaboration with Creative Grandma, a popular yarn-themed YouTube channel.
The extra item I received for February is this large, handmade button. This button is made by women in South Africa, and feels like it is made from some kind of clay or ceramic. It is hand painted with a pretty fruit tree design.
The crate includes a small pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate. This booklet contains 2 crochet patterns (Nora Toque and Fingerless Gloves) and 2 knitting patterns (Sand Dunes Hat and Handwarmers) for the Membership crate. For the Sock crate, there’s a sock knitting pattern (Cloudchaser Socks) and a crochet sock pattern (Melon Sorbet Socks). The Creative Grandma also designed a crochet pattern for this crate, the Dreamscape Scarf, available for download here.
I’m not sure what I’ll make with these yarns yet, but I can’t wait to see how these speckles look worked into knitted or crocheted fabric!
Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review!
