There’s nothing better than getting yarn in the mail! Every time I order yarn, or get sent some, I wait with anticipation at the door in hopes that soon I’ll get to play with it. Once it arrives, I squeal with delight, and get so excited when I get to squish it and marvel over the pretty colors. Well, if you get excited about getting yarn in the mail like I do, then I have an exciting subscription yarn box to tell you about! My friend Ashley, from Leither Collection, has created a special monthly crochet subscription box specifically designed for crocheters. How awesome is that?!
The Leither Collection crochet subscription box was started by Ashley and her husband to provide a fun quality craft subscription box for crocheters. Ashley dyes beautiful yarns to go in the boxes, and her husband carves amazing ergonomic crochet hooks out of wood. With the yarn that Ashley creates, she designs a crochet pattern that uses that yarn, and includes the pattern in the box so you can create it too! Together, it creates a beautiful collection of yarn goodies that you can get each month!
So how does this crochet subscription box work? Each month there is a new yarn, hook, and pattern created specifically for that month that the box includes. The boxes are then shipped out each month around the 15th, so you’ll get your box towards the end of the month. When you sign up to get one of the boxes, you’ll have a few different options for what type of box you can get. There are 5 different box options are:
I was asked by Ashley to do a review of the June box, so she sent me the Natural Deluxe crochet subscription box to share my thoughts on it. First off, the packaging for the box is beautiful. From the tissue paper colors, to the card, and the labels on the products, everything is so carefully coordinated to create a lovely aesthetic. For just $34 for the deluxe box, the amount of products that you are getting for it is a steal. Usually hand dyed yarn costs around $27 a skein, and a hand carved crochet hook alone costs anywhere from $30-50. So to be able to get these high quality products at the amazing prices they give you is wonderful!
When I opened the box and saw the beautiful yarn in it, I was so excited that I get to work with it. The colors of the hand dyed yarn skein go together so well, and create a beautiful fabric when they are worked up. The yarn itself is superwash merino wool, which makes it super soft and provides a great squish to the yarn. I kept wanting to touch it and start working it up right away! There is also a substantial amount of yarn in the skein, so you know that you can use it to make a project without having to worry about more.
My first thought when I saw the hand carved hook was one word: wow! Right away you can see the quality of the carving on this hook, and the wood handle is so smooth. It’s carved to be an ergonomic crochet hook, which gives it a nice balance and grip in order to prevent you from holding it too tight. The ergonomic design also helps you to be able to crochet for longer periods of time due to the handle design helping decrease hand pain. All in all, it crochets like a dream, and I can see myself using it all the time!
The pattern for the month is an adorable llama lovey, made with the beautiful hand dyed yarn skein. It’s such a cute pattern! I can see it being the perfect gift for a baby or toddler who loves llamas. In the deluxe box, you also get the stuffing, thread, and safety eyes to make the head of the llama. They really thought of everything you’d need so that way you don’t have to worry about getting it yourself! The other boxes just include the pattern, but all of the items you’d need are very easy to find.
My overall thoughts on this crochet subscription box are that I love it. With some subscription boxes, you don’t get the same amount of quality products for the price you pay, which leaves you not wanting to go back. I would definitely get another box from Leither Collection, because there products are absolutely beautiful. You can tell that Ashley and her husband love what they do, and that they care about creating lovely boxes for their subscribers each month. It would be such a fun box to get in the mail each month! If you like getting special yarn in the mail each month, then I would definitely recommend getting a Leither Collection crochet subscription!
If signing up for this subscription box sounds like something that you’d love to do, then you can head to their website, and check out the different options that they have. You then choose one of the 5 options I mentioned above, and then you’ll get your box shipped out around the 15th or 20th of the month. Use the code ECLAIREMAKERY to get 15% off of your first box! If you want to just start out with one of the more basic boxes, you can always change your subscription to be upgraded to another box. Be sure to do your changes before the 19th though, because subscription plans renew on the 20th!
I hope that you enjoyed this review of this fun crochet craft subscription box from Leither Collection. It’s such a fun yarn box to get in the mail! Be sure to use the code ECLAIREMAKERY when you check out to get 15% off of your first box!
