Title: Mystery Bag

- +

This is a PREORDER listing for a Fantail Mystery Bag. This is our gorgeous new merino + silk sock yarn. Please allow 4 - 6 weeks for your yarn to be lovingly hand-dyed. 

Whether you have trouble deciding or just love a surprise the Mystery bag is a great way to sample Augustbird yarns.

You will receive 2 x 100g skeins of Augustbird Fantail yarn in two different colourways. You could receive a classic Augustbird colourway, a one of a kind colourway, a past club colourway or something new. The colourways are chosen at random so you never know what you'll get until you open the bag. How exciting!

Mystery bags are perfect for gift giving too.

Got some of the new sock yarn and can’t believe how shiny and soft it is. As always Rebecca’s dyeing is beautiful and I cannot wait to a start my adventures in plastic free socks begin.

Hey Skye that’s wonderful to hear! I must say I’m pretty excited about this new base too. Hurrah for nylon free socks. I hope you have fun knitting your socks. Thank you for your order and review. Rx

A tangled mess

The wool itself is very beautiful, and the colours great - I received light blue and very light mauve/grey. The packaging was really nice, especially the personal touch with the card, very enjoyable, thank you !
The light grey skein took me 6 evenings to untangle and wind into a ball, and at times I was quite ready to bin it. Frustrating in the extreme, what kept me going was the beauty of the yarn itself. Hopefully this was a once-off experience (I never had problems with my previous purchases).

Oh no Irena I’m so sorry to hear this has happened! I will email you right now. Warmly Rebecca

Exquisite Yarn

I love a surprise! I received two beautiful skeins of yarn in my Fantail Mystery Bag. The yarn is so soft and gorgeous.

Mystery Bag sock wool

The two skeins are delightful and I will be making mittens for a friend with the blue on. I appreciated the greeting card that was included

Michelle Jenks
Gorgeous yarn

The yarn is gorgeous and so soft to touch - can’t wait to finish my socks

Hey Michelle thank you so much for your order and your kind review. Yay! I'm chuffed that you like the new Songlark sock blend! I would love to see the socks that you make with it. I'm planning to make a pair with some pink that I dyed with avocado skins but I haven't settled on a pattern yet.. too many pretty ones to choose from. Let me know if you have any recommendations for patterns. Warmly, Rebecca x
