Quickly, a verse from our VG Twelve Days of Deals:
On the second, third and fourth days of deals, the elves bring to you.....20% off yarn purchases from tomorrow, Friday, December 6th through Sunday, December 8th. Huzzah! You won't need to enter any codes, everything intended to be on sale will have the discounted price in place.
For our update this coming Monday, December 9th beginning at 10:00 am EST through Tuesday, December 10th at about 5:00 pm EST, we are running a special custom dye offering for many of the past club colours. These colours are now officially able to go public, so you do not need to have been a club member to order in this update.
There are four listings: Club Custom Dye - Bugga!, Club Custom Dye - Eidos, Club Custom Dye - Traveller and Club Custom Dye - Mondegreen. You may order any quantity for each base, just please be sure to indicate in the comment section the colours you want and how many of each. Each listing has the names of the colours—as well as referencing the original club colour name—for your convenience at the time of ordering.
Please note that because this is a custom dye, it may take up to two weeks to dye and ship.
Ready for the glamour shots?
But first, a disclaimer: Unfortunately we are not able to provide photos of each colour on each base, so please note that colourways will differ across bases from what you see in the Bugga! pics here.
For example, all previous Codex Club colours have a sheen because of the silk content, and will not have quite the same luster in other bases. Also, most of the colourways we are offering have not been dyed in Mondegreen, and generally, Mondegreen colourways are more gentle and may not have the same intensity or variegation.
