The Yarn Club // Subscribe, or one-time

- 0%
  • £21.00


Cut off for the June club is 01/06/23 23:59 BST, order between now and then to have your order shipped between the middle to end of June.   Orders placed after 01/06/23 23:59 BST will be part of the July club.

Have I decided to do a club again...? Yes, I have!

So, my neon friends... in The Club, you will be choosing what your heart most desires, which will either be a bundle of 5 x 20g minis in 4ply or DK, or a 100g skein of 4ply, DK, or Aran.

It's £21 for all options as a one-off, or £20 for a recurring monthly subscription. You can edit your subscription to change the yarn option you'll receive each month if you fancy swapping, and you can edit the charge date (which will otherwise repeat at the same time of the month as your first order) as well as delivery details etc. 

Cut off for both one-off and subscriptions will be the end of the 1st day of the month, after which I will get to dyeing. The Clubs will be shipped as soon as they are ready, which will depend on the volume of sign ups each month, but will be by the end of the month at the latest (if I have any unexpected issues such as illness, I will be in touch to advise of the delay).

It's really important that you understand the cycle timing, so you don't expect me to send your club too soon if you ordered after the cut off has been and gone. The billing cycle runs 2nd of the month until the 1st of the following month and thereafter I will start dyeing the orders - here are some examples to help clarify:

  • Order anytime between 2nd Jan 00:00 - 1st Feb 23:59 (always GMT/BST), receive your order towards end of Feb

  • Order anytime between 2nd Feb 00:00 - 1st Mar 23:59, receive your order towards end of Mar

  • Order anytime between 2nd Mar 00:00 - 1st Apr 23:59, receive your order towards end of Apr... etc. for all of the other months!


All colourways are a surprise, and will be new colourways. You will not see them until the parcel has arrived at your door. 


Options will be as follows (subject to change each month, I may add more or other options as we move forwards with this):

Please do note, none of the options will be dyed to intentionally fade into the following month - they are standalone colourways or bundles.

5 x 20g minis in 4ply or DK:

  • Semi-solid gradient bundle, i.e. one semi-solid colour in an increasing saturation for each of the five skeins, going from 20% up to 100% (e.g. one month may be a blue gradient, then the following month a pink one, then a yellow one, etc. - they are not going to be designed to fade into one another from month to month)

  • Variegated ‘fade’, i.e. five skeins which will be a mix of semi-solid/tonal sections and speckles, all mingled up in the skein, that should fade into one another if you work them in order (for that month only - this is not a fade that will intentionally fade into the next month)

100g skeins in 4ply, DK, or Aran:

  • A Neon Heart variant (for the die-hard NH fans) - this will be a new Neon Heart variant, not one I’ve dyed in the past. Please note the colourways won’t intentionally fade into one another like the old NH Fade Club used to

  • A handpainted colourway - this means the colourway is likely to colour-pool as the dye is applied by me in set sections, so as you work with it those colours will line up to create ‘pooling’. The ‘old’ Lumina colourways and Saturised/Pastelised are examples. No fading from one colourway to the next each month, they'll all be completely different

  • A variegated/speckled colourway - this will be a mix of semi-solid/tonal sections and speckles, all mingled up in the skein. Again, this will not intentionally fade from one month to the next, they are standalone colourways!

Details of the yarn bases I may use are as follows:

4ply 100% BFL Superwash 100g, approx. 400m.   

DK 100% BFL Superwash 100g, approx. 225m.  

Aran 100% BFL Superwash 100g, approx. 166m.

4ply 85% Merino / 15% Nylon Superwash 100g, approx. 400m.

DK 85% Merino / 15% Nylon Superwash 100g, approx. 225m.

Aran 85% Merino / 15% Nylon Superwash 100g, approx. 180m.


Please do not request a particular base; I may not be able to accommodate you due to my yarn stock, and I will have planned the colourways on a particular base already. BFL is my preference as usual, but from time to time I may use Merino/Nylon, e.g. if BFL is out of stock with my wholesaler and I don't have enough to hand, or if I am short on spoons due to my health issues I may choose to buy Merino/Nylon minis so I can save the energy that I would have otherwise used making BFL minis by hand (I cannot get BFL minis from my usual wholesaler, I re-skein all of them when I do offer them).


Dyed with professional acid dyes and rinsed thoroughly. Any neon dyes I use are UV reactive.

Shades between batches may vary. As standard, colours may vary between device screens.



Order processing times (delivery cost info below, scroll down)

Current lead times

The current lead time for shipping yarn which is Dyed To Order is 2-3 weeks (unless a more specific preorder date was stated on the product listing).

Please note, if I hit order capacity, I will close the dyed to order listings down early as there is only a certain amount I can dye due to disabilities ❤️ 

Anything you have purchased which is Ready To Ship doesn't mean immediate despatch, but it does mean I'll usually get them posted within a week or so for you depending on my order volumes.

Please do allow me some 'wiggle room' with processing your order, for ADHD and chronic health issues (more info below).

Pattern purchases

After ordering, you will receive the PDF via email manually from me. You must ensure the email address you are using is valid as I will be using it to send you the PDF. I will be emailing them at least once a day, except for whenever I'm on holiday.


Important additional info

Upcoming holidays which may impact orders 

No substantial time off is planned at the moment, aside from a day off here and there which won't impact on orders.

Potential health delays to orders

Please do note that I have chronic neurological and musculoskeletal health issues alongside ADHD (what a killer combo! 🫠), which makes running a business a bit more tricky at times, so I occasionally need flexibility in lead time expectations ❤️ As I'm only human, I may also catch a bug now and again and need a couple of unexpected sick days!

I will regularly communicate my expected order processing times if I'm having difficulties and I'm pushing into what I consider 'overdue' territory (usually 3-4 weeks since you placed the order), but if you're unsure what's happening with your order, please do just email me to ask.

Always remember, I am just the one person working on What Mustard Made, and I do my best at all times to work through what I can every working day (unless I'm taking a sick day), always trying to move forwards.

Please check your junk folder for the shipping confirmation before getting in touch about an overdue order, as some email providers like to put me there.



Customers are responsible for all customs VAT/duties fees on receipt of Goods. 

None of my prices include VAT, so you may be charged VAT by your country's customs authorities before the parcel will be released to you, according to the goods value threshold in your country. I am not in control of this, and I do not control the admin fees you may incur on top of the VAT charges. Please take this into account when ordering.

Care instructions

I would always recommend hand-washing in cool water to keep your finished items in good condition for as long as possible, though with any Superwash yarn you can of course pop it into the washing machine if required (I have washed my socks on occasion in the washing machine, they're still looking good colour-wise, but I only do it maybe once or twice a year, doing hand-washes for the most part).

Bleeding and crocking

Before we begin, bleeding and crocking are totally normal (though don't necessarily happen with every colourway or every skein) and can occur with both hand dyed and commercially dyed yarns. They happen when loose dye particles which couldn't heat set into the already-saturated yarn come out in water (bleeding), or onto your hands as you're working with it (crocking).

I rinse as many excess dye particles out of my yarn after it has finished the heat setting process as I can, but due to the way some dye particles behave, there could always be some left behind that will release during the lifetime of the yarn. They may not always come out in that first rinse, despite thorough rinsing before it leaves me and gets to you ❤️

Bleeding: I don't usually encounter any bleeding when I block my yarn swatches, or any finished objects I actually complete in my yarn (using a light amount of Soak, always in cold water), but due to the nature and behaviour of some dyes, and other variables such as the hardness of your water compared to mine, you might find some bleeding may occur when soaking.

You can use a colour-catcher when you are soaking your finished item to try to catch loose dye particles which may bleed out of the yarn. 

Crocking: I also don't usually encounter any crocking, but this is said to vary for each crocheter/knitter as per the pH on your hands (and if you've recently used any hand cream). Any dye transferred onto your hands while working with any yarn will wash off with soap.

Sheep welfare

The yarn wholesalers I use are committed to sourcing all of their wool from farms which comply with high animal welfare standards.

My main yarn base - BFL, Bluefaced Leicester - is a British breed of sheep and is all sourced from individual farms in the UK by the British Wool Marketing Board, and graded to ensure its high quality.

Any Merino I use is certified as mulesing free, mainly from Australia, and they source the remainder from South America and South Africa where mulesing is not practiced. Their Kid Mohair is sourced from South Africa, and Alpaca is from Peru from small family owned smallholdings.


The Superwash yarns I use are treated using the Hercosett process, and my wholesalers only use reputable companies to superwash their fibres, who hold ISO14001 accreditation and/or engage in best practice with regard to environmental performance and waste water treatment and re-use.
