February 2021 KnitCrate Review – This Wool, Mohair, and Silk blend yarn is heathered and fuzzy! 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 at least 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.

Each month’s crate has a theme, and the theme for February is “Unwind”. There are usually three colorways available, but in the February crate, there are eight! Instead of choosing a specific colorway, you choose which color category you want, and you get two skeins of one color from that category. I received a lighter, heathered shade of navy, with subtle tonal variations blended in.
The yarn is Audine Wools Calm, a soft, fuzzy, DK-weight blend of wool, mohair, and silk. It’s spun with a two-ply construction. The wool gives it structure, but the mohair adds just the right amount of fuzz. That touch of silk adds a slight sheen, which really highlights the texture of the yarn. It feels so luxurious!
All KnitCrate subscriptions include a bonus item, and this month, it’s a heart-shaped retractable measuring tape. It has a cord attached, so you can wear it as a necklace or tie it to your bag so it won’t get lost.
The crate also includes a digital pattern booklet, including the patterns from the Membership crate and Sock Membership Crate. These patterns are designed to work perfectly with the yarns in the crate. The February booklet includes 1 crochet pattern (Overnight Twist Cowl) and 1 knitting pattern (Restful Fingerless Mitts) for the Membership yarns. For the Sock crate, there’s a sock knitting pattern (Trellis Socks) and a crochet sock pattern (Shooting Stars Socks).
Thanks so much to KnitCrate for sending me this crate to review! I’m excited to see how this yarn works up in a project. 🙂
