Selvedge – August Color Of The Month!

And just like that it’s August and the color of the month is…. Selvedge!

Selvedge. The color of blue jeans. I know jeans are the basis for 90% of my wardrobe so it seems appropriate that Selvedge could be a great launch pad for knit garments and accessories (all those cute colorwork wraps, hats, mitts and sock oh my!) – all one color or colorwork! Because, what doesn’t look great with a pair of jeans?!!?

So let’s kick of this last (‘sniff sniff) month of Summer with an eye toward Fall. TomorrowTuesday, August 1st there will be a pre-order update featuring Selvedge and friends! The update will begin and end on the 7’s! 7:00 a.m. EDT to 7:00 p.m. EDT to accommodate as many of you as possible! And, just for fun (and because mysteries are so fun) we will be offering three skein mystery kits from this update. Leave us a message in the notes of your order and we will do our best to accommodate your wishes!

Like Toad-ally! Update

I know that’s not a toad, we’re just using some artistic license here 😉

 

 

We’re Like, Toad-ally in Love!!

If there is one thing you should know about me when it comes to yarn (besides my undying love for all things gray), it’s that I completely adore neutrals with a twist, and green comes in at a very close second to my love of gray!  So, you can imagine how much I love, really LOVELike, Toad-ally!  It’s all I can do not to cast on everything with this beauty, including colorwork!  I love this earthy, deep, broody neutral with delicate colors like Plie’, or with brights like Keep It Classy!  Along with Like, Toad-ally, we have a line-up of brand new colors that we can’t get enough of!!

 



 

Beginning with this update, we are delighted to offer a new service!  We will be providing (posting to Ravelry and the Plucky Instagram feed) pictures of new colorways, not only on Primo, but also on some of the bases that can change the colors up a bit…think Snugs, Cashmere, Oxford/Scholars/Crews.  Not only will there be a picture of it in skein form, but also a knitted swatch so you can really see the nuances. We hope you love it and find it to be helpful!

See examples of swatches below…

  • Cachet
  • Crew

It’s Sign-up Time! – Plucky Classics & Plucky Luxe Club

It’s that time!  Time for a new round of both Plucky Classics and Plucky Luxe!

Sign-ups begin right here on the Plucky Blog beginning with Classics on Monday, July 24 – Wednesday, July 26, 2017 followed by Plucky Luxe, Thursday, July 27 – Friday, July 28, 2017.

We are super excited to open up our subscription clubs!  This time we’re starting afresh with the ability to use the new My Account feature on our website. We want to give everyone a chance to sign-up for something new or give Plucky Classics or Luxe a whirl for the very first time!

We’re saying goodbye to a few bases from the previous rounds but we’ve rounded out the options between the clubs with new bases that have quickly become Plucky favorites.

 

For those who may be contemplating Plucky Classics, let me give you a little background. Hayley and I love old movies. The Classics. Or, at least those that we consider to be classics! Our idea of a perfect evening is to slip an old movie into the DVD player, make some popcorn, sit back with our knitting and lose ourselves in a movie. But, it’s not just the oldies that we consider Classics. Who doesn’t love a cheesy 80’s or a 90’s disaster movie?  Our tastes are eclectic, to say the least.  And, it’s from our personal list of classic movies that we draw our inspiration for the Classics subscription colorways.

Sign up for your Plucky Classics in July and payments will automatically continue, every-other-month. Your first shipment will be sent by the end of August. Payments and shipments will continue in this manner until cancelled.

 

 

And what about Plucky Luxe? Does it work the same as Classics? Well, yes…and no! Plucky Luxe gives you an opportunity to have regularly scheduled doses of luxury cashmere and special cashmere blend bases arriving at your door, but on a budget plan!

How does that work you ask?! Upon enrollment, a first payment (half of the total subscription cost) will be deducted from your PayPal account or charged to your credit card. The second half will then be processed on the same date in the following month.

Your Luxe subscription will then ship in the beginning of the month following the second payment of each 2-month cycle (i.e.: Payment in July, payment in August, shipment in early September).Your Plucky Luxe subscription will continue on this payment plan and shipping schedule until cancelled.

Here is how the Plucky subscription sign-ups for Classics and Luxe will work:

  1. Sign-ups go live on Monday, July 24 for Classics, and continue through Wednesday, July 26, or until spots remain available.  Luxe sign-ups will be live on Thursday, July 27and continue through Friday, July 28, or again, until spots remain available.  Both sign-ups will be on the Plucky Blog.
  2. Upon enrollment, your first payment will be deducted from your Paypal account or charged to your credit card. Subsequent payments will continue to be deducted as follows:
    • Classics – the same date of every-other-month
    • Luxe – the same date of every month
    Subscription payments will repeat on this same schedule until the subscription is cancelled, which you will now be able to manage using the ‘My Account’ feature on our website!
  3. By the end of every month following the subscription payment, your Classics order will be shipped to you. You will continue to receive yarn, every other month, as long as payment processes and your subscription remains active. For example, subscriptions paid in July will ship by end of August. Luxe will ship the beginning of the month following the second payment of each 2-month cycle. Example: 1st subscription payment in July, 2nd payment in August, shipment in early September.
  4. The base and quantity you choose will be your subscription until you cancel your subscription. You may cancel your subscription at any time however, you may not change your subscription mid-term or sign-up for a new subscription until sign-ups open again!
  5. Bases available:
    • Classics: Bulky, Cachet, Cambridge 2.0, Cashmere, Cozy, Crew, Crewbie, Feet, Lodge Fingering, Lodge Worsted, Nifty, Oxford 2.0, Primo Aran, Primo Fingering, Primo Sport, Primo Worsted, Scholar 2.0, Sweater, Sweater Aran, Trusty
    • Luxe: Cachet, Cashmere, Groovy, Groovy, Baby!, Spiffy, Halo
  6. Pricing will be our standard per skein yarn price plus shipping to your location.
  7. You can have multiple subscriptions in ONE signup!
  8. Here is a YouTube video to show you how sign-ups work! CLICK HERE TO WATCH

Plucky Classics is a great (and fun!) way to ensure you get a regular dose of Plucky yarn, especially if you find it difficult to make the updates (time zones, work schedules, etc.). Plucky Luxe allows an opportunity to indulge in the luxury of cashmere without breaking the bank!  Sign-up and yarn will magically appear in your mailbox. Easy Peasy!

Please note: Subscriptions will be sent as they are ordered.  If you have extenuating circumstances or questions, please email us at pluckycustomerservice@gmail.com at any time with questions and we will be happy to assist you!
