This Tuesday, August 28th, we will introduce mini- skeins of Bugga! Weighing only one ounce and 96 yards each, they will first be available as a set of 20 Constant Companions (that’s all the Constants minus Rhinoceros Beetle) called our “Squidlet Kit.”
It looks like a box of crayons to me.
Starting the following Thursday (August 30th) we will start selling pre-made palettes of 4 or 6 skeins. These will be variety packs we’ve hand-selected to coordinate with each other. For example, a set of 6 might be a rainbow or a melange of neutrals, a set of 4 might be several cool blue tones that look lovely together or a few of the really special speckled colors that look really nice but maybe you don’t want to commit to a whole skein of each.
Each mini skein weighs 1 ounce and yields 96 yards. The Squidlet Kit of 20 Constant Companions will be $160, smaller palettes of 4 mini skeins will be $32 and palettes of 6 will be $48. At this time, our palettes will be pre-selected and photographed for you to choose from on the site. We don't currently have any plans to allow choose-your-own palettes, though that might change down the line depending on how we’re able to keep up with demand!
Mini skeins are perfect for colorwork, small projects, or testing out a bunch of colors to see what you like and what works best together. For the price and yardage of one skein of Bugga!, now you'll be able to get four colors. We're super excited to be doing this - it's unlike anything we've tried before, and we'd love to hear what you think of it!
Join us in our mini skein thread on Ravelry to give us some combination recommendations or just to chatter about the new palettes!
We're so excited to release these- they've been long in planning, and we're thrilled to finally let the cat out of the bag. We can't wait to hear what you think!
