After successfully putting out a Sox Box (not only for socks but was always sock weight yarn!) every quarter (well almost!) for 4 years, I felt it was time for a change in the format.

Following this pandemic of Covid-19 and the crash in the South African economy, I feel it is now more important than ever to support South African businesses, especially our yarn industry as we have come to realise how much we need and rely on yarn for our sanity!

ColourSpun Pure Cotton Sock Happies

Local is Lekker box number 5 contains 10 mini cakes of 10 grams each, hand dyed in 10 of the over 400 colours available from ColourSpun. Each 10 grams is approximately 31 metres, and can be used for small amigurumi projects, or where you need stripes of a colour. The box is also an interesting way to test out the yarn and to make some samples.

Included is a Project Journal Card for your crochet or knitting journal file, and if you have collected the other 4 boxes, you can add to your other cards.

Special Offer

In addition, we have a special offer running, the Local is Lekker box 4 is on special if bought with box 5:

DIY Dye Your Own Speckle

Local is Lekker Box number Four is a little different from the others in that YOU have some DIY to do! Rita Trafford has been running an extremely successful natural dyeing workshop online, during this pandemic which forced many of us to do things differently. I thoroughly enjoyed her class, and asked if if she could create a boxed version for Be Inspired. Rita has taken it to another level, and included everything you need to dye a speckled skein of yarn, as well as a special mini hand dyed by her.

Box includes:

100 gram undyed skein of superwash merino

a mini skein naturally dyed by Rita

a Fijn Botanicals natural conditioner for your yarn

components for the dye process

3 different plant materials for the dye process

step by step project card

a discount code for Rita’s online dye class

 

Please choose the option you want using the drop down – Just the Happies (ColourSpun box) or the Special offer which includes the DIY Dye box.

The first twenty boxes ordered and paid for (One special bag per person) will receive a beautiful cotton drawstring Be Inspired Kit bag.

PLEASE NOTE: EACH OF THE BOXES COLOURS WILL VARY. IF YOU ORDER TWO HAPPIES BOXES I WILL TRY TO PACK TWO DIFFERENT “COLOURWAYS”.
