Indie-dyed yarn looks so nice in online pictures, doesn't it? Photos are carefully posed with props, lighted just right, and post-edited to look perfect on e-commerce websites and Instagram. Every yarn, it seems, is "bouncy", "lofty", "soft", and "perfect for next to skin wear". 

But how can you be expected to lay out significant sums for something whose value relies entirely upon how it looks and feels to your eyes and in your hands, if you can't see and touch it directly? 

Alley Cat Yarns now offers sample sets to help address this problem!

Purchase a sample set--which includes a small sample of each of our core yarns--for just $10. Your sample set will arrive with a gift certificate in the total amount of your purchase, including shipping costs (if applicable)*. You can then use your gift certificate toward any item at Alley Cat Yarns.

Your set will include a micro skein of the following yarn bases:

  • Leo BFL Sock
  • Smooth Sock
  • Minou 3-ply merino/cashmere/silk fingering
  • Minette single-ply merino/cashmere/silk fingering
  • Polwarth DK 
  • Silk Yak DK
  • Moggie DK/Worsted 100% superwash merino
  • Duchess DK/Worsted BFL/silk/cashmere 

Please allow 2 weeks for production of your sample set.

Limit of one sample set per customer, please.

*Shipping cost included only if your order included no other items to which shipping applies. Sample yarns vary based on current regular stock, which is subject to change at any time.
