Yarn Cartel

If you’ve been searching for a yarn box that is subversive but shouldn’t be hidden, let me introduce you to YARN CARTEL by Countess Ablaze.

Our postie Goldie refused to believe that the sackfuls of online order each day were nothing more than hand-dyed yarn.

“Are you selling drugs? I’m being serious?” he quietly asked.
I had a wry smile on my face as I refused to properly answer.
“I respectfully decline to answer because I honestly believe my answer might tend to incriminate me,” I replied.

Goldie began to call me Pablo Yarnscobar. The sackfuls of yarn orders built up daily and he’d make jokes as he collected them. You should have seen his face when he saw our 80-kilo delivery of citric acid arrive. A picture, a beautifully hilarious picture. I kept my stony resolve and didn’t admit that it was merely a fixing agent for dye.

My dear Goldie, you are correct. I am Pablo Yarnscobar and my drug of choice is yarn. Yarn that is bright, yarn that is moody, yarn that is so full of promise that you do not want to hide it in your stash.

As a yarn mule, you’ll receive your themed box every other month, beginning with Prohibition.

You won’t be overloaded with yarn monthly.

You’ll actually have time to make something with it. To savour it. To indulge.
