Anti-fat tax discount
In an effort to be more inclusive to makers of all sizes, Viking Fiber Company will be trying out an anti-"fat tax" discount for our upcoming Hygge Collection.
We understand that plus size crafters have to spend more on materials to make the same thing as everyone else. We want these projects to be accessible to everyone.
We trust our friends in the fiber community, but also don't want to take a risk of putting out a discount code that just anyone could use. So for now, if you're buying a SQ and you need 7+ skeins, we'll give a 10% discount to the yarn purchased.
To receive this discount, we ask that you make your purchase and then email us with your order number, and we'll credit you the amount.
We understand it's just one more step, but this is also a way to make this type of (possibly) uncomfortable transaction a little more personal and caring. A way for us to connect with you rather than just giving a discount code.
We hope this will be an acceptable way to help makers of all sizes. And know that we can always adjust and make changes if this process isn't working. We'll find a way to make it work for everyone.
Thank you all for your understanding and support of us and of everyone in this wonderful fiber community.
A special thanks to @cesiumyarn for bringing this idea to light and to all the other makers out there who are taking the same steps to help our fiber community be more inclusive.
(This discount will be available on a SQ of yarn that requires a larger size of 7 or more skeins. For example, if you need 8 skeins of DK for your sweater and also order 2 skeins of worsted for another project, you will be discounted for the DK weight only.)
