RAWR! Take Two

RAWRasaur

The Second installment of RAWR! is available for sale at Tiny Dino Studios on etsy!

For the inaugural installment, I offered a 6-month subscription. I didn’t have any takers. I understand why, the fee was just a little steep. That’s why this time, I am only offering a 3-month club. However, I now offer two ways to pay. I am offering the good old simple one-time payment option here. But if $92 is just a little bit too much for you plunk down in one go, beacuse I know it is for me sometimes, I am now offering a month-to-month payment plan, which averages to just about $30 a month. You purchase the month-to month option on etsy, paying for your first month and the shipping charges, then I will bill you via paypal for the two consecutive months the same day I ship your order. You can find the month-to-month option right here.

Join in on the fun! You won’t regret it! Here’s a look at what you get!

What is RAWR?

RAWR is a brand new sock yarn club from Tiny Dino Studios!

Purchasing this product entitles you to a 3-month subscription of Tiny Dino Studios sock yarn dyed in an exclusive color way each month. That means will you receive three unique skeins of sock yarn in your very own mail box over three months. This club begins in April 2013 and runs through June 2013. Your subscription will ship on the 15th of each month.

Bases may vary in any variation of the following throughout the three months:
Protoceratops: 100% Merino 3-ply sock yarn
T-Rex: 80% Merino 20% Nylon super-tight 2-ply sock yarn
Apatosaurus: 100% BFL 4-ply sock yarn
Velociraptor MCN 80% Superwash Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Nylon sock yarn

Yarns will be dyed using my signature, bright, saturated style, but you don’t just get yarn with this yarn club. Each shipment will also include 1 skein of hand dyed yarn, 2 hand-made stitch markers, two links to sock pattern suggestions–1 free, 1 paid– that I think will coordinate with your yarn. And two links to non-sock patterns if socks don’t float your boat.
