What is Camp Loopy?
It’s a virtual summer program where you make monthly projects according to challenges and you can earn prizes for getting them done. Along the way, we’ll have fun project discussions, contests, and special events for anyone who’d like to participate!
There is no fee to join, and you can participate for one month, two months, or all three months.
Each month we will have a designated Camp Store Week where you can get 15% off of the yarn for the next month’s Camp project. This gives us time to ship it to you before the project start date of the first of the month.
Camp Store Week for June Project: May 12-19
Camp Store Week for July Project: June 11-18
Camp Store Week for August Project: July 10-17
2020 Camp Rewards
This summer, the prize for completing the different months is a Camp Kit – and you determine how much comes in your kit by how many months of Camp you complete!
For completing one month of Camp, your kit will include: our new, exclusive Loopy Science Code pattern
For completing two months of Camp, your kit will include: the pattern plus two of our favorite notions
For completing all three months of Camp, your kit will include: the pattern, the two notions, and a skein of our Wollmeise Specials in Pure (574 yds. fingering weight) to use for the Loopy Science Code pattern (or whatever you want to use it for!)
We will email patterns and ship out the Camp Kits sometime after the first week in September (when we’ve had a chance to do all of the photo approvals and can see what your kit needs to include).
Camp Store Week: May 12-19 (supplies for your June Project).
To get the discount, leave us an order note and tell us which yarn will be used in your June project and we’ll apply the discount on our end.
If you are going for free shipping in the U.S., please make sure the discount won’t take your order below the $100 level or the website will add the postage cost back onto your order.
Camp discount cannot be combined with other discounts, or used on Last Call yarn.

Loopy Kids Version
We would love for your kids/grandkids/nieces/nephews/neighbor kids to join in on the Loopy Camp fun again this summer. They can choose to do half the yardage requirements (a 200 yard project for June) and will earn a fun knitting notion for each month they get marked as complete. Please help them make their own Loopy Account so we can track their purchases, photos and points.
To celebrate Camp Loopy this summer, you’ll find:
Camp t-shirts available
Camp Project Bag Tags

All Camp orders will receive a free 2020 Camp Pin, while supplies last. Be sure to leave us that order note, so we know you’re participating in Camp!

The Color Lab (for people mixing colors for their June challenge)
The Material Lab (for people mixing yarn bases or beads for their June challenge)
