Have you ever wanted to experience new yarn without committing to an entire skein? There are so many beautiful yarns out in the world, and not enough time to try them all. I wish all of us were able to spend our days surrounded by yarn and get the opportunity to test and play with new yarns all the time. As much as I would love to spend my days lounging in a pile of fluffy yarn, I’m sadly unable to.
I do spend most of my working day in front of a computer or my iPhone, and this is how I get introduced to new yarn. I would say 90% of the time I’m introduced to new yarn, it’s because of a great photo on Instagram. The first thought I have when I see new yarn is, “I wonder what the yarn feels like?”, followed by wishing I could sample the yarn. Being able to try out yarn without having to commit to an entire skein has been something I’ve dreamt of. Knit Purl Minis came out earlier this year, and my dream became a reality.
For those that are new to Knit Purl Minis, they are a way to experience new yarn without commitments. Be warned though — our Minis include yarn you will want to purchase in bulk. Our first edition of Knit Purl Minis included North Light Fibers Water Street, which is some of the softest cashmere/merino yarn. I’ve committed multiple times to Water Street and don’t plan on ever stopping. We are now onto our second edition of Knit Purl Minis which includes the following:
- 20 yards of Illimani Royal I and 20 yards of Civility Worsted
- Swatch instructions that bring out the best in each yarn
- A coupon for 10% off your first purchase of Illimani Royal I and Civility Worsted
How can one collect Knit Purl Minis? Well, you can either purchase them for $8, or we will gift them to you with any order $75 or more (while supplies last). I know it’s a little early to bring up, but the holidays are already on my mind. For those that are in need of gift ideas, Knit Purl Minis will make a great stocking stuffer!
