November - Sinterklaas Kapoentje
General Information regarding the Wolbeest Sock Club 2020
This year there will also be a themed sock club throughout 2020. There will be two series: Beatrix Potter and Fiep Westendorp.
The Beatrix Potter Sock club is inspired by the beautiful drawings of Beatrix Potter: Mrs Tiggy, Peter, The Mice, Mr Tod, Jemima and many other of her characters. The skeins of this series will be dyed in a mix of soft(er) colours, tonals with some speckles and the odd dark base colour. Leading will be one of the beautiful watercoloured drawings from the stories in her books; every month a different character.
The other themed series is inspired by Fiep Westendorp, a Dutch illustrator of childrens books which is well known in The Netherlands. The drawings of Floddertje, Pluk, de Stampertjes, Jip en Janneke and many more of the characters of Annie M.G. Smidt immediately come to my mind. This series will be dyed in brighter colours, contrasting colours with speckles etc.
The monthly sock club contains the following:
- Sock yarn of your choice which can be the standard package of 50 gr. skein of sock yarn: 75% sw merino – 25% polyamide
Or a 100gr skein 75% sw merino – 25% polyamide (EXTRA COST)
Or a 100gr skein 75% sw BFL (Blue Faced Leicester) – 25% polyamide (EXTRA COSTS)
- 20 gr. mini in matching colour
- Doping 😊 (tea bag & sweets)
Instead of the standard 50gr skein 75% sw merino – 25% polyamide it is possible to order a 100gr sw merino skein or a 100gr BFL skein. The mini will have the same base as the main skein.
There will also be a sock knitting pattern made available at the start of the series. This pattern can be downloaded by the participants of the sock club by means of a code which will be in the accompanying letter.
Cost of the standard 50gr. sock club is €25,00 incl. postage within the Netherlands, mini etc.
Cost of the 100gr merino sock club is €28.50 incl. postage within the Netherlands, mini etc.
Cost of the 100gr BFL sock club €29.00 incl. postage within the Netherlands, mini etc.
When will the sock clubs be sent?
In the last week of the month unless stated otherwise. UPDATE: Due to COVID-19 delivery of ordered goodies from abroad take longer to arrive. The aim is to sent the sock clubs at the latest around the 15th of the subsequent month.
