Each month a parcel of blended fibre, designed by me, will pop through your letter box, accompanied by an email letter explaining my inspiration for the fibre.
Colours have symbolism, they showed political allegiance, social status, some colours have changed the world.
Maybe we’ll travel down the Nile with Queen Nefertiti, or take a walk down Carnaby Street in the Swinging Sixties, the world is our oyster, who knows where and when we'll end up.
The fibre itself will be a blended combed top, just like the Silk Road, & Nordic Collections.
The fibre content every month will change depending on what colours I decide to use, and the fibres that I feel are appropriate. I promise no Angora, but everything else might be used. (including sparkle). Any Merino is from non-mulsed flocks.
Your fibre will be posted out in the month following your payment.
This payment in October covers the parcel that will be shipped in November.
Uncertainties with supply chains have meant it's not possible to give an exact shipping date. It may be that you will make 2 payments before your first parcel is shipped.
When your parcel is posted you will get a shipping confirmation email, and will also be sent a separate email with your inspiration letter. In addition you can also access the Time Travellers Club Space in The Fellowship of Yarn to discuss all things related to the club.
Each month I also help you to get the most from your club parcel by posting Spinning Hints and Tips. These give you advice on spinning methods, yarn weights, and also how to combine your club fibres to give you larger quantities of yarn.
This is a rolling club membership. You sign up, and each month the same amount is automatically taken from your account on the anniversary of your first. You keep your space in the club until you cancel the payment.
You can manage your Hilltop Cloud subscriptions by logging in here, this allows you to cancel, edit your address, and update your payment card.
If you don't want to sign up to a subscription you can also choose to make a one-off payment. You'll be sent a parcel next month, but won't be committing to a regular payment.
If you purchase any other items alongside this club then your whole order will be posted when the club is ready to be sent.
