Sign-ups are now available for shipments starting in June (if ordered by June 10). Batts ship on the 25th of the month. The monthly Knit Spin Farm batt club is a shipment of a full sized batt, or set of minis, weighing at least 3 oz. A double club is also available and will include two batts (or sets of minis). You can sign up for a one-time shipment, or subscribe for monthly recurring charges (the cost is the same for either option). You can pause or cancel your subscription at any time.

Batts are made with a mix of wools, including Corriedale, Cheviot, Falkland, Polwarth, Targhee, Rambouillet, and others. They may also include sparkle, silk, sari silk, and silk noil.  (If you'd like to avoid any of those add-ins, please leave a note in your cart at check out, or email me at jsmoskal@gmail.com)

There are four themes available for batt club. You can choose a single theme or the option to rotate through the themes. 

    • Bold Batts (theme rotates every 6 months) - The theme for May 24-October 24 is Contrast. Contrasting colors and blends of light and dark will be explored for these six months. Some batts will focus on the way colors contrast (perhaps a gradient from yellow to its complementary color purple), and others on how depth of color changes work in spinning (for example, a batt with both very deep navy, and very pale aqua; or a dark batt with lots of light sari silk and silk noil). All batts will be bold and will make a strong statement!
    • Chill Batts (theme rotates every 6 months) - The theme for May 24-October 24 is Grimy with colors blended with a range of earthy greens, blues, and browns. For six months there will be a variety of colors, but all will be blended with some form of a dirty neutral and could be combined for bigger projects. 
    • Celebrations and Seasons - do you want reds and browns in fall, bright colors for Halloween, and something floral in the spring? This theme will help your spinning match your calendar. 
    • 3 month color run - Every 3 months I'll pick a color which will appear in each batt. The three shipments will be different, but will contain the color listed below, dyed with the same formula each month. The colors for the next few months are:
      May, June, July - Gentle Vanilla
      August, September, October - Pale Pink
  • Rotate Theme - can't decide on a theme? Choose "Rotate theme" as your option, and you'll get a random shipment each month. This is a great option for undecided and adventurous knitters, as well as anyone who wants to make up their own theme. If you pick this option, you can send me an email (jsmoskal@gmail.com) and request something different, such as "cool colors" or "boldest batts with the most texture" or whatever makes you happiest. Each month I will do my best to send you the batt that matches or is closest to your preferences. If you have no preferences, that's ok too!

A note on 6 oz/Double clubs! First, thanks for indulging and loving wool as much as I do! Second - you can choose to either have two of the same batts/minis in each shipment, or choose two separate themes. This listing is set up for a double dose of the same theme, but if you'd like two different themes, please choose the option "6 oz/Double Club, Mixed Themes" and send me an email (jsmoskal@gmail.com) to let me know which themes you'd like. I'm really glad to provide this option, it's just too complex to create in this listing. 

If you choose the subscription option, your first charge for the club will occur the day you sign up. After that you will be charged monthly for the club on the 5th of the month. Fiber will ship around the 25th of each month starting with the month indicated at the top of this listing. You control the length of your subscription and can cancel at any time. Details are provided in your confirmation email when you complete your order and you can email me anytime at jsmoskal@gmail.com.
