Head on over to the Plucky Reserve for some sweet treats today! 🥧 day!!!
We’re making a little extra room!
As we turn the page on January and look ahead to some exciting new things coming up here at the Plucky barn, we find it necessary to make a bit of room, and well, that adds up to some great deals for you! So, just consider this a friendly little PSA. Here are the bases that are hitting the Reserve now through tomorrow at the discounted price of $22/skein:
• Lodge Fingering
• Sweater Aran
You’ll also find a fabulous selection of Primo Sport (regular price) in sweater and shawl quantities. Please join us while supplies last!!
Gift Certificates are here!!
Yep, you heard that right, gifting for that special knitter in your life has been made simple! Of course, this means you, too! (family and friend requests made easy!)
We are absolutely thrilled to offer this service, and, starting TODAY you will find a gift certificate button on our Reserve shopping page! Once selected, you will be given the opportunity set any amount and can choose to either send a receipt directly to the recipient, with a note from you, or send it to yourself for gifting in person!
We truly hope you are as excited about this as we are! There will, of course, be a bit of fine print (i.e. they cannot be exchanged for cash, etc) that you will find listed on the product page. As always, if your questions are not answered there you can email us at email@example.com and we will be more than happy to help!
Well…we made it back to the barn after what was the most ah-mazing weekend! We truly can’t thank all of you enough for traveling far and wide to help us celebrate Plucky’s 10thAnniversary!! But, you know us…we couldn’t let the party stop there! The truck is unloaded and the boxes are unpacked. It’s time to keep the party going on Reserve!
Boy, oh boy, did we unpack some fantastic things! For starters…Shooter sets in 3 brand new color combos (along with some old favorites)! With the purchase of a Shooter set, we are delighted to offer a code for our brand new shawl pattern, The Shooters Shawl! This shawl uses 2 skeins of your favorite fingering weight base as the main color with 1 shooter set. We introduced a slew of new colorways at the Shindig, and yep, you guessed it, some of them will be making their way onto Reserve across bases, too.
And now, for the really big news!! We are over the moon to present you with 2 of the 3 brand new bases that made their debut this past weekend! Introducing, Trusty Fingering…yep, Trusty’s little sister (375 yards 100% Merino SW) and Snazzy (195 yards, 80.20 Merino. Cashmere)…Aran weight and oh, so squishable! While it’s true that a sampling came back home with us, you can be sure they will all be coming out to play at a Blog update soon!
In addition to all of this, keep your eyes peeled for Riverview mixed base Mystery Kits and some One Hit Wonders!!
1. Please join us, in the Plucky Reserve starting Friday, November 3rd at 9:00 AM EDT.
2. This update will ship according to our Reserve guidelines, within 4 business days.
3. If there is a mystery kit in your order, please note, the entire order will not ship until the week of November 13th.
4. Important: Due to the quick nature of sales on Reserve, it is possible that items may oversell. If your order oversells, you will be issued a refund. Thank you for understanding!
A BIT OF HOUSEKEEPING:
Yarn available in an IG (Instant Gratification) update is on hand and ready to ship. This means we are not be able to accommodate changes to orders once they have been placed. Likewise, we would respectfully ask that you not place an order then request it to be canceled. IG’s happen in real time and if you have removed an item from the sale, it is no longer available for someone else.
Due to the nature of IG update’s (yarn we have on hand and that is ready to ship) it may be possible that multiple skein orders will not match as closely as those that are dyed to order. We will do our best, but please know that if ordering several of the same skeins, there is a chance of receiving different dye lots.
One last note! Unfortunately, there is a possibility that we may make an error in counting, entering and packaging these orders. If we do, please know that we will refund that item immediately upon discovery and/or will be sure to let you know if we might be able to offer a substitution!
Don’t we all love a bit of instant gratification once in a while?! Well, this Friday, August 11th is your chance to get Plucky in an instant! You might be wondering how is this different from shopping the Reserve any other time – well, for starters, it’s more interactive. I will be taking requests and adding things in (as I am able – inventory permitting) in real time as we go through the morning and early afternoon. It’s so fun! The inspiration we all get from each other and, well, for sure you guys inspire me with you endlessly creative ideas on how and where to use your Plucky! How festive is that?!?
There is sure to be something for everyone with this sale! We’ve been setting aside a fantastic array of choices, and there will be everything from onesies and twosies across the bases, to sweater quantities, to mystery kits – What the Fade anybody!?! We even have a few of the bases that have not been able to come out and play at the last few updates…Sophisticate, Bello, Bello Worsted and Cashmere, we are talking about you!!!
A BIT OF HOUSEKEEPING:
Bye, bye Tuscadero, and Hello, Loch!
Phew! We’ve made it through February! Why is it that the shortest month of the year somehow seems to last the longest? I, for one, could not be more thrilled to be turning the calendar page over to March. To celebrate, let’s say we have a little party in Reserve! For starters, we’ll be having one last hoorah for Tuscadero, PLUS; we will be offering Loch on special for a limited time, too!

We’ve made it halfway through February, and as far as we’re concerned, that’s worth celebrating!! So, how about, we have some fun in Reserve?! We just couldn’t resist putting together a whole new palette that we adore with Tuscadero, and there’s a little something for everyone here.

A very happy Friday of Super Bowl weekend to one and all! I have something kind of exciting to share with you!
First things first. Reserve will be getting a little maintenance (this being the first step in an ongoing process) early next week, so we will be shutting the doors for a few days starting Monday.
But, before that happens, we have something pretty fabulous to share with you this weekend! Bungalow is in the house…..think sweater quantities across the colors, woohoo!! We adore this special, limited edition yarn. Reserve will be stocked this weekend with Bungalow, while supplies last. Anyone thinking spring knits? Get your Bungalow!
Now. Drumrolll!!! We are unveiling something BRAND NEW this weekend on Reserve….introducing, Yakpaca!! This 50.50 yak/alpaca worsted weight yarn (our swatches produced 5sts/inch on a size US 8 needle) is really special.
Yakpaca. It’s pretty much everything, and more! Light, lofty and breathable with a fabulous hand and next to skin softness. It’s absolute perfection for sweaters, shawls, wraps, and smaller accessories like hats and mitts.
Hayley has already cast on for Loulou with it, and I am totally smitten with my Corner Brook! Yakpaca plays so nicely when it’s time to mix those bases! I’m mixing Yakpaca with Groovy for my Corner Brook and it’s just.so.good.
Yakpaca ($29 per 250 yards per skein) is available in the following palette of natural colors: Beatnik (black! Still needs photo), Pinstripe, Nailhead, Going Gray, Paneling, Band Wagon, Bobbin, and Pitchfork. FYI. These colorways are exclusive to Yakpaca only. Thank you!
Happy Friday friends,
In our neck of the woods, that means winter is not going away any time soon…ugh. So, we thought a dose of bright, fun whimsy was just what the Dr. ordered for February’s color of the month!
Drum roll, please…Tuscadero will be 17% off all month long!! It’s an oldie, but a goodie (and yes, named after the one and only Pinky Tuscadero) with gorgeous shades of hot pink and fuschia. It is, of course, wonderfully zippy on the clearer bases like Primo, but it does amazing things to the Travelers, Scholars, Crew and Lodge(s) too!
We have put together a cohesive palette of complimentary colors that make Tuscadero sing!! We will be stocking the Reserve with these beauties starting TODAY, February 1st and they will be available while supplies last.

Have you had an opportunity to take look at the Plucky Reserve lately? It’s getting really interesting over there! And, it promises to be a VERY lively place over the next few days!
As the yarn and all the remaining swag from Glamping arrives back in the barn (we subscribe to the ‘go big or go home’ and the ‘all that and the kitchen sink’ mentality when prepping for a show), we are inventorying and stocking it into the Reserve. We hope you will check regularly because this is going to be a constantly changing scene! Here you will find your favorite scummies, brights, tonals, greys, and SBs across so many of the Plucky bases. But, keep looking because there will also be mystery kits, project bags, Fringe Field bags, coffee mugs, pens, and on and on! About the only thing you won’t find will be a little black and white dog named Ox! He’s not leaving my side, nor I his. So glad to be home with my pups!
Please remember, items from the Reserve Shop are all ready to ship. Your Plucktober/vember project might be right there, waiting for you!
We’ve been busy!
As promised when we first launched the Plucky App, we are continually working behind the scenes to bring greater ease and more information into the app. This is an ongoing project!
In the coming days, look for an updated menu screen with direct access to announcements and to the shop (Reserve and Swag! Yes, we’re bringing more Swag back!).
You will also find a new layout for Ox’s Mystery Matches as well as additional information on the bases shown in photos. You can expect to see more variety in Ox’s matches that will include patterns featuring 2, 4, 6, and up to 8 different colorways. Ox will be noting the preferred Plucky base for each match, too! He’s particular that way 😉
We are continually working to make the Plucky App your most valuable planning tool. More updates to come in the near future.
We are so excited and grateful that only weeks after introducing Plucky Reserve, our new online yarn shop, it has been received with such enthusiasm! We take pride in listening to you and are so pleased to provide you with another buying style for Plucky yarn. One of our greatest priorities has been to find a way to reach those of you who might find the blog updates inconvenient or fast-paced Etsy sales a little too invigorating. And, to all of you…sometimes you just want a skein of insert your favorite base or color here. All these things led us to the addition of Plucky Reserve!, and we thank you for giving it such a warm welcome!
As you’re seeing, part of the fun of Plucky Reserve is that is ever-changing! The quantities, bases, and colorways available are regularly refreshed – you never know what hidden gems you may find in the shop! We are restocking the shop as inventory permits and our hope is that you continue to check back often to see what we have posted. Who knows what surprises you’ll find!
A few important items to keep in mind…
Thank you, again, for shopping in Plucky Reserve. We are so excited to bring you another way to experience Plucky!
