Podcast Episode 319: Behind the Scenes – Eco Yarns and Subscription Boxes

Today we take a trip behind the scenes at Knit Picks to talk about two of our popular programs! We’re busy adding to and refining our subscription boxes and eco yarn offerings throughout the year and wanted to share some of the stories and highlights from both. 

First up, Alison and Hannah talk about their history of developing new eco yarns. From past favorites like Full Circle to our recent Upcycled yarn launch, we’re proud of what we’ve been able to source and are always looking for new yarns to add to our collections.

Next, Erica and Kate share some insights into our subscription box program. Carefully curated boxes arrive at your door every month, full of lovely yarns and favorite patterns. We’ve recently relaunched our program with new boxes and are always working on new ways to surprise and delight our super fans. Find out who is on Team Hawthorne and who is on Team Stroll. 

 If you are someone who gets a subscription box, use the hashtag #KPSubscriptionsuperstar  #KPHandpicked and share your experience.

As always, happy knitting
