Do you love getting surprises in the mail? How about boxes full of gorgeous, hand-dyed artisan colorways on luscious bases? If this sounds like something you’d enjoy, we’ve got the perfect solution: the ZenKnitBox!
Subscription boxes are all the rage, and ZenKnitBox is our yarn-tastic version for knitters and crocheters. Creating each bimonthly ZenKnitBox allows us to keep the creativity flowing (and the dye pots full!!) as we create new themes and colourways to delight our subscribers.
Depending on which thematic option you sign up for, we’ll design new colourways every other month and send them out to you. The colours you receive in each shipment will be on the same base, and will be designed to coordinate beautifully. All you’ll need to do is find the perfect pattern, add some needles and knit (or crochet)! Check out our current options and choose the one that suits your style.
Variety and colour is the spice of life. Treat yourself to luxury yarn blends in spicy rich colourways!
For the Spice of Life box, every other month you will be treated to (2) skeins from our Serenity line (Serenity 20, Serenity DK or Serenity Worsted), our merino/silk/cashmere base that customers love. We won’t include a pattern in the subscription, but your skeins are designed to coordinate and/or contrast so they can be used together in a project.
The colours will be a surprise until you open up your package but we will be showing you a hint of the theme for the box before we ship! Be sure to join us on Facebook for these teasers.
We've been dyeing ART WALK colourways since 2007 and we thought it time for a remix! Each box in this subscription will include an ART WALK mixed semi solid one of a kind colourway along with its complementary splatter colourway. These colourways are designed to be used together in larger project - we’ve taken the hassle out of trying to find two colours that work together in a single project!
Each bimonthly installment you’ll be treated to (2) skeins on on the same base from our Serenity line (Serenity 20, Serenity Silk Single, Serenity Silk +, Serenity DK and Serenity Worsted). Patterns aren’t included in your subscription but be sure to join us on Facebook to discuss pattern ideas!
The colourways will be a surprise until you open up your package but we will be showing you a hint of the art piece for the box before we ship. Make sure you join our Facebook group for teasers!
If you love yarn and surprises in your mailbox, the ZenKnitBox is a must on your wishlist! We can’t wait to see what you make.

A few of our recent patterns use brioche knitting techniques to create a lofty, reversible, ribbed fabric that's oh-so-squishy. Brioche may look complicated, but it's actually quite simple - all you have to do is slip stitches to create yarnovers in one row that are then knit together with stitches in the following rows.
Many patterns use two colours of yarn, which can be easier when you’re first starting out, but you can also knit 1-colour brioche as well.
Creating and working with yarn is such a labor of love for all of us in the fiber community.
That’s why we believe that it’s so incredibly important to employ the most environmentally-friendly practices throughout the production process, every step of the way. To us, honoring the planet that nurtures the gorgeous animals we get our fiber from, conserving the water we use to dye with, and using as little energy as possible is one of our top priorities.
