The Rivers of London Yarn Club
purchase before 2 July and get a free handprinted drawstring tote
Subscriptions for our Rivers of London yarn club are now open. This time we have decided to go for a themed club, and we hope it will be the first of many!
The theme for this club is 'Rivers of London'. It seems a fitting theme, as our shop is based in London so close to the River Thames. Colourways will be inspired by the River Thames and the hidden, mysterious, subterranean rivers that run out of the city and beneath the streets of London. I wonder if one runs beneath our shop?
A celebration of London and the magical River Thames - in yarn form!
You will get a gorgeous parcel of knitting goodies through your door every month. Your yarn subscription will include at least a 100g skein of I Knit or Dye yarn in a specially dyed River Thames inspired, Limited Edition colour way AND a matching project bag to store your latest project in, plus a little extra special gift.
Yarn bases will vary each month but will all be I Knit or Dye natural fibre sock/4ply, approx 400m per 100g... It's all part of the surprise.
All subscribers will receive a different style of handmade I Knit or Dye project bag every month and a discount code to be used on our online shop!
The club will run for 3 months, with parcels being sent out in July, August and September. You can choose a one, two or three month subscription.

Colourways and their inspiration
Old Father Thames - A nickname for the river Thames but also the name of the river god associated with the Thames and its tributaries. Depictions of Old Father Thames can be found along the Embankment, at Nine Elms and also at Ham House, Somerset House, Hammersmith Town Hall and Kew Bridge.
Ophelia - Inspired by one of my (Coral's) favourite paintings, Ophelia by Sir John Everett Millais. The location for this beautiful painting was at Hogsmill River. Hogsmill is one of many tributaries of the Thames; it rises in Ewell, Surrey and meets the Thames at Kingston-upon-Thames.
The Lost River Effra - Hidden beneath the streets of London is a secret waterway. The River Effra, an ancient river now lost from sight. It once flowed from Norwood down through Herne Hill, Brixton and Stockwell before joining the Thames at Vauxhall.
