Yarn Update: Ellie Kits, & Other Goodness!!

Club Sign Ups

Okay, so now that the New Year frenzy has calmed down a bit, we thought it would be a good time to update the kits to let you know what’s new in stock!

Also, as an extra option, we will be offering a new pricing level that will include hand-made Artisan Buttons!

Ellie kits

Want an Ellie Kit in a specific colour?  Email us at orders AT indigodragonfly.ca and we’ll put your request in our dye queue and contact you when it’s ready!

(note: the colourways pictured are exclusively available at Shall We Knit? in Waterloo ON)

Ellie kits contain:

  • enough yarn to knit either the short or long version (coming soon!)
  • Ellie pattern in your choice of hard copy (short only) or PDF (will receive pattern updates)
  • 4 Standard or Artisan buttons, chosen specifically for your yarn (let us choose coordinating buttons)

Pricing (with Standard Buttons):

Merino Sock – Short: $22.45      MCN Sock – Short: $26.95
Merino Sock – Long: $33.95      MCN Sock – Long: $40.95

Pricing (with hand-made Artisan Buttons):

Merino Sock – Short: $26.45      MCN Sock – Short: $30.95
Merino Sock – Long: $37.95      MCN Sock – Long: $44.95

Standard Buttons:


Hand-Made Artisan Buttons:
We commissioned these lampwork glass buttons specifically for the Ellie kits. No two sets…in fact, no two buttons are exactly alike.  They are slightly larger than buttons we’ve previously offered and will turn your Ellie mitts into a statement piece.


To order:

Email orders AT indigodragonfly.ca (NOT .com) and tell us:
1) what you’d like to order
2) where you live (country or province if you live in Canada)
3) your Ravelry name, so we know where to deliver your pattern!

We will confirm your order and send a paypal invoice to you.  All prices are in Canadian funds.  Currency conversion will happen in Paypal.

***PLEASE NOTE: Both the MCN Sock and Merino Sock skeins being posted today are available for the Ellie kits, but not the skeins in the other bases! As well, the full skeins of MCN Sock and Merino Sock being made available today are to be sold as full skeins only, and are not available to being made into half skeins. Also, all of the MCN Sock and Merino Sock skeins being listed today are also available for sale by themselves and not part of an Ellie kit, at the prices listed.***


Email orders to: orders@indigodragonfly.ca to place all orders.  Let us know: 1)  what you would like to purchase, 2) where you live (state/province/country), and 3) whether you would like us to wind your yarn into cakes (charge of $1 per skein with proceeds going to our Otis Houndation).  A PayPal invoice will be mailed to you that includes airmail shipping (or surface mail if you’re in Ontario).  Please allow approx. 1 – 2 weeks for delivery in Canada, 1 – 3 weeks for deliveries to the United States, and 2 – 8 weeks for international shipping (and possibly a bit longer depending on where you are). For further information, see the bottom of this post.

To purchase any of the above yarn, please send me an email at orders AT indigodragonfly.ca (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which colours(s) you would like, as well as where you live. First email request for each yarn/fibre secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 1-5 business days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $7.80. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so a shipping quote will be sent as part of your invoice for your approval. You are welcome to cancel the order at that time. Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders for regular colourways are always welcome – just email me with what you have in mind.


One thought on “Yarn Update: Ellie Kits, & Other Goodness!!

  1. Its such as you read my mind! You seem to
    know so much about this, such as you wrote the book
    in it or something. I feel that you simply could do with some percent to drive
    the message home a bit, but other than that, that is magnificent blog.
    A fantastic read. I will definitely be back.
