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! 

 

Plucky Classics, A Yarn Club

It’s Sign-Up Time!

A Brand New Round of Plucky Classics

Sign-ups begin Sunday, November 20th at 9:00 a.m. EST, right here on the Plucky Blog!
We are super excited to open up the Plucky Classics subscription program for another round. We want to give everyone a chance to sign-up for something new, add to their existing subscription, or give the Classics program a whirl for the very first time!

We’ll be saying goodbye to Rustic and Sweater but rounding out the Traveler line-up with Traveler DK and Aran.

There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and Traveler. These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing. And they will be inspired by the same ‘Classic’.

For those who aren’t really sure why we call it 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 cheezy 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 colors. We hope you will watch and knit with us!

Here is how the Plucky Classics subscription works:

If you are already a Classics subscriber, and you don’t want to change a thing with your current selections, you are golden and don’t need to do anything! Your subscription will continue on in the same manner.  If your subscription included one of the bases that are not featured in this round of Classics, you will have already received correspondence from customer service about your subscription.

  1. Sign-ups go live Sunday, November 20 at 9:00 a.m. EST on the Plucky Blog and will remain open as long as spots remain available.
  2. Upon enrollment (the date you subscribe, beginning Sunday, November 20), you will have the payment for your yarn deducted from your Paypal account. Subsequent payments will continue to be deducted, on the same date every other month, until you cancel your subscription.
  3. At the end of every month following the deduction (December), your Classics order will be shipped to you. You will continue to receive yarn, every other month, until you cancel your subscription (February, April, June and so on).
  4. The base and quantity you choose will be your subscription until you (or we) cancel your subscription. You may cancel your subscription at any time.
  5. Bases available are: Primo Aran, Primo Fingering, Primo Sport, Primo Worsted, Bello, Bello Worsted, Single, Feet, Trusty, SNUG Worsted, SNUG Fingering, SNUG (bulky), Crew, Oxford (original), Scholar (original), Sophisticate, Traveler (sport), Traveler DK, Traveler Aran and Plucky Cashmere and Cachet! A quick run-down of yarn details can be found on our website here.
  6. The Classics color each month is a surprise colorway and may be the same across all bases.There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and the Travelers! These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing.
  7. If you would like a subscription for more than one base, you will need to make an additional subscription.
  8. Pricing, including shipping costs can be viewed here.  Please be sure to choose the appropriate selection (U.S. or International) based on your shipping address.

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.). Sign-up and yarn will magically appear in your mailbox every other month. Easy Peasy!

Please note: multiple orders will be combined for shipping, domestic and international.
Values for customs documents will be completed in accordance with the pricing shown on your PayPal receipt (i.e. One skein Primo Worsted shipped internationally will reflect a value of $33.00, etc. for customs). Again, thank you!

LUXE CLUB

A Subscription To Luxury

Does the thought of cashmere regularly arriving at your door appeal to your longing for a bit of luxury now and then? Do you wish you had chosen cashmere as an option for your Classics subscription? Would your budget love a “set it and forget it” payment plan?

Subscriptions for the Plucky Luxe Club will open on Sunday, November 20 at 9:00 am EST here on the Plucky blog and will remain open until subscription spots remain.  Upon subscribing, you will be billed every month for one half of the total amount of your subscription*. Approximately 15 days after your second payment, your yarn will be shipped to you. This will result in six bi-monthly shipments, featuring a brand new color for each installment, and twelve monthly payments.

Let’s use November as our example. If you subscribe for three skeins of Cachet (US subscription), and using the chart below, your total cost for those three skeins will be $226. On the day you sign up (for example, November 20th), your PayPal account will automatically be billed for one half of your total, $113. On December 20th, your PayPal account will automatically be billed for the second half your of your total. And then on/about January 4th, you will be sent all three skeins of your Cachet in the brand new mystery Luxe color. This color will be exclusive to the Luxe Club and will not be available on any other base. And, Hayley and I will be sure to post pattern suggestions in the Luxe Club Spoiler thread, sharing ideas and chatting about what we think will look terrific in the newest color! You can be sure that each mystery color will positively sing on cashmere!

LUXE Subs
*All applicable postage/shipping fees will be reflected in your subscription total.

This is a subscription only club, with a one-time signup event. Your current subscription will continue, with no changes, until you (or Plucky) cancel. If you wish to modify your order, adding or subtracting skeins of Cashmere (sport) or Cachet to your subscription, you may do so now by cancelling your current subscription in PayPal or by choosing a new subscription during this sign-up event. If you are currently enjoying a Luxe Club subscription (for which you subscribed to last May), you can sit back and relax, knowing that you will continue to receive your regularly scheduled delivery of cashmere! If you are new to The Luxe Club, welcome! We are delighted to bring you this opportunity for a bit of every day luxury.

If cashmere is calling your name, sign ups are below! We will continue to hold the market open while supplies last. Thank you so much for your continued support for all things Plucky! Whether you sign up for one skein or a sweater quantity, everybody deserves a little cashmere in their life!

Please note that if you are currently receiving cashmere in your Classics subscription, your Classics will continue to be sent in the Classics color. The Luxe Club is separate and will be the only way to receive the exclusive Luxe Club colors.

Fondly,
Plucky-Sig-USE

Plucky Playlist Club

PluckyPlaylist-LOGO

Friday, August 5th at Noon EDT
& Sunday, August 7th at 8:00 p.m. EDT on the Blog

 

Mixed tapes. Remember those? If you’re a child of the 80’s they were huge! Back in the day, if you were anything like me, you’d wait by the radio for hours at a time waiting with bated breath for your favorite songs to come on, hit record and hope no one made any sudden loud noises to ruin your recording!

Fast forward to today, and you can download your favorite tunes and save them to a playlist.  The possibilities are endless. Do your tastes run to top 40, R&B, oldies, classic rock, and country mixed with a dash of hip-hop? Or maybe you prefer a little Waylon and Elton paired with some Prince, P!NK and a dash of Seger?  Come to think of it, this is beginning to sound a little bit like my personal playlist and knitting! Mixing those bases and colors adds spice to my knitting – it’s my knitting playlist!

Please join us on Friday, August 5th at Noon EDT and again on Sunday, August 7th at 8:00 p.m. EDT as we put together our Plucky Playlist Club.  Just like a mixed tape, you will find a “Side A” mystery color and a “Side B” mystery color.  This means you will have four choices.  You can select only Side A, or only Side B, or both Side A and AND Side B, or you could select the entire cassette tape, containing both mystery colors and a third color that will coordinate with both SIDE A and SIDE B. If you choose the cassette, you will receive one skein of each mystery color and one skein (from the existing Plucky color catalogue) that will coordinate/accent both Side Aand Side B.   Mix it up!  Dare to mix the bases.  There are no rules here!

WHAT: PLUCKY PLAYLIST CLUB
Your choice!

  1. A single track (A or B); One skein of either SIDE A or SIDE B, on the base you select
  2. Both tracks (side A and side B); One skein of SIDE A on the base(s) of your choiceand one skein of SIDE B on the base(s) of your choice,
  3. Bonus Track; Two brand new, coordinating mystery colors, with a third color that will coordinate/accent with both mystery colors.  Mix it up!

WHERE: On the Plucky Blog
WHEN:  Friday, August 5th at Noon EDT and again at Sunday, August 7th at 8:00 p.m. EDT

Plucky Fellas Club

PluckyFellas-2016-CLUB-LOGO

 

It’s time for the next installment of the Plucky Fellas Club!

All the Plucky Fellas colors are fella/guy/tomboy inspired, perfect for socks, sweaters or accessories we neutral loving guys and gals just love to wear.

~What will you find? Loads of neutrals with a kick, all on your choice of base(s) available below. And, we always spice it up a bit with a few special colors that will help the Fellas sing!

~This time, however – since we usually say “you’re not invited” to what some might consider more girly colors – we are going to add a few of our favorite lights and brights, as well as three colorways of our new Small Batch collection to accent the Fellas existing colorways, AND the new Fellas mystery colorway!

~If a Small Batch color is on your ‘must’ list, you will be able to order it as a single skein in your chosen amount. We have built a collage for each so that you can see the colors that we think pair beautifully with each. All the colorways shown will be sold as individual skeins.

All colorways available in this update are shown in the collages below:

It’s Sign-Up Time!

A Brand New Plucky Classics

This time it’s different!

Sign-ups begin Thursday, May 5 at 9:00 a.m. EDT, right here on the Plucky Blog
We are super excited to open up the Plucky Classics subscription program for another round. We want to give everyone a chance to sign-up for something new, add to their existing subscription, or give the Classics program a whirl for the very first time!

It’s an exciting round to join as we’re changing up Classics, in a VERY big way!

Although we are saying farewell to Sweater from the line-up, we’re bringing in Crew, Oxford (original), Rustic, Scholar (original), SNUG (bulky), Sophisticate, AND Traveler (sport).  Phew!!  We’ve never had this big of a shake-up to Classics and we hope you are as excited about it as we are!

There may be months where we choose to draw from the same inspiration, but an entirely different colorway specifically for the bases of Crew, Oxford, Scholar, and Traveler. These four bases due to their unique fiber content/properties, take the dye differently than the others but you can be assured we’ll choose a colorway that make their uniqueness positively sing.

For The Love Of Scum

SCUMMY-Logo

There’s nothing like a brand new CLUB to launch a brand new year!

I know it’s hard to believe, but there might be a few people out there who think we are all talking about a thin layer of pond algae when we profess our love for scum. But, no way, not us. We are talking about those warm, earthy colors that only nature could suggest. These colors are the moss that grow on the shady side of trees and the mushrooms that smell of the earth. Scummy colors happen when you take any color and bring it into the dusky afternoon of a forest, shaded from the brightest lights.

Which side of the coin best describes you? Are you like Hayley who absolutely glows when wearing colors like Fiona, Triple Crown, Joe Banks or Ogre right up against her face? Or are you more like me who needs to place a cooler buffer between your face and the scum’s? While Hayley looks terrific wearing something knit entirely in warm, earthy colors, I use those same colors as the accent to help my brighter, cooler and neutral colors pop.

ScummyLove-Collage-2-AScummyLove-Collage-2-BScummyLove-Collage-2-C

Please join us on Friday morning, January 8th at 9:00 am EST and again on Sunday evening, January 10th at 8:00 pm EST, as we launch our For The Love of Scum club. We will be featuring a brand new scummy mystery color that promises to be gorgeous as a stand-alone color or paired with a multitude of other Plucky colors. In addition to the mystery color, we will include lots of your favorite scummy colors and a great selection of brights and neutrals that play beautifully with their scummy color friends. A note about the Scum club…please don’t expect just versions of greens or yellows with this club – these colors come in many varieties and hues of all sorts!

The above collage and the list of bases below is a taste of what to expect for this update, but remember; the lists aren’t finished just yet! As always, we invite you to post your wishes in our Wishlist thread and be sure to keep an eye on the Update News & Announcement thread in our Ravelry Group.  Hayley and I will be posting some of our favorite mixes and combos, all focusing on scummy colors. This is also where you will find the final listings of colors and bases that will be offered in this For The Love Of Scum club update.
