Welcome to Jimmy's Micro-Brewed Yarn Subscription Page!


Micro-Brewed Yarn Subscriptions

We love working with independent hand-dye companies to create gorgeous special edition colorways, but we realize that in the "Indie" dyer world, there is a huge leap between the Lorna's and Tosh's of the bunch (who we also love to pieces), and the "Micro" dyers who dye yarn on their kitchen stove or in their garage.

Each month of this year, we'll introduce you to the work of one new "Micro-Brewer" if you will, with one of their lovely yarns dyed just for us!

Treat yourself to an ongoing monthly subscription or pre-pay for 3, 6, or 12-month gift subscriptions. Micro-Brewed Yarn Subscriptions also make great gifts for the yarn-lovers in your life! You can opt out any time, but we don't think you'll want to!

To sign up, simply choose from the options below. An ongoing subscription is just $30 per month (or $40 for our international customers)!

If you have any questions about our subscriptions, please feel free to contact us, or check out our Jimmy's Micro-Brewed Yarn Subscription FAQS!
