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.

I aspire to be a leader in self-care and creativity, providing yarns that inspire you to connect with nature, express yourself, and find solace in the meditative rhythm of knitting. My vision extends beyond yarn – I aim to be a beacon of support and knowledge, empowering knitters and makers to embrace a mindful lifestyle. Through my commitment to kindness, creativity, and sustainability, I envision Augustbird as a trusted companion on every knitter's path, weaving more happiness and self acceptance into the fabric of their lives.

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

Such gorgeous yarn and spectacular colors. I’m hoarding them for my next pair of lace socks!

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
