Thank you for your patience with April's Churro Club! Over the last few weeks we have had some major changes in the business. All is going to be good soon, but it's going to take us a few more weeks to get on our feet again. (I will be getting an email out to everyone soon, explaining what has been going on here.)
We hope you love April's colors! This was my (Teresa's) first month dyeing Churro Club by myself and I couldn't help but lean towards off-whites and off-greys. I have always loved how the smallest of dye can change a natural yarn into something totally different.
You can see in the photo above what I mean. On the left is "Storm" the darker of the two grays you received in April's box. On the right is "Cattail"... and nestled in the middle is the Natural Light Grey Churro both of these where dyed over. If you put the skeins from your box up to other yarns you have collected over the years, you will see how each of these two "off-greys" will either enhance or contrast with other skeins in your stash. If you have a skein (or sample) of the Natural Light Grey Churro, put it up to those same stash colors and you will see how much of a difference a little dye can make.
This time of year, the weather is so wild here, including wind storms (we have seriously had days with 70mph gusts), warm days with frosty nights... it could be hot, freezing, snowy, rainy, sunny, windy or just beautiful... and often it is all of these in one day. The plants are trying to put out new growth (light versions of the more intense colors we will be experiencing in a month or so), the dust in the sky "mutes" so many of the bright colors we usually experience here. So, there you have it, the inspiration for April's Box. I hope you love the colors!

About your discount
We offer 10% off all Churro Club yarn orders! Just enter the code (TCC24) during checkout.
If you don't enter the code, not to worry! We will can apply the discount on our end.
The skein in your monthly box will be a different dyelot than bulk orders. This means that color may vary slightly.
Every bulk order will contain the same dyelot. However, if you order a dyelot on the 1st and we ship it and then you order more of that same color on the 15th, there is a very good chance that each shipment will be a different dyelot.
We have a few dyelots of these colors dyed up and ready to ship. Once these are gone, we will wait until we have enough orders to use up a dyelot.
This is why we have a cutoff date. Once we reach that cutoff date, we will know how much more we need to dye and do one more run. This will happen shortly after the cutoff date and ship once it dries.
