Mini Skein Yarn Advent Calendar 2109 - 25 Surprise Mini Skeins - PRE-ORDER Now!

$185.00




The 2019 PLYarn Mini Skein Advent Calendar is here! Pre-order now to receive in mid-November (with plenty of time to start opening December 1st). These are limited edition, so order now to be sure to get one - last year they sold out! I have already begun to receive requests to pre-order, so here we go!

Each day of December until Christmas, you will get to open a surprise mini skein of yarn (with other adorable holiday or fiber related goodies added in here and there)! Each day's gift is individually wrapped - what could be more fun for a knitter or fiber crafter?! (If you would like to order this yarn set without any wrapping, please contact me - it would be $10 less).

Photos above show last year's 2018 calendar and other examples of my minis. I'm super excited because now you have your choice of 5 base yarns! This year we also have some new add-ons. There is a surprise special project bag for the 2019 Advent Calendar as well as the option to add a coordinating full size skein in your chosen yarn base.

The 2019 collection will be a surprise - a beautiful flow and fade of color consisting of speckles and semi-solids which can be combined as they are unwrapped or used in a modular project or in many other ways (see the photo of the shawl above from last year using all the 2018 skeins).
NOTE: I am including a "DK" option for the base yarn. DK is not recommended if you plan to join an Advent Knit-Along, as most of those patterns are fingering/sock weight. However, the DK option is great for all the gorgeous color-work sweaters that are so popular now.

My advent calendar is inspired by my participation for the past 2 years in the wildly popular ADVENT Knit-Along on Ravelry by Ambah O'Brien. Each year, she creates a pattern for a beautiful shawl or scarf that uses 24-25 Mini Skeins. Each new yarn is opened in the morning and a few rows are knit using the yarn of the day. There is a fun (huge) social group for sharing on Ravelry and it is so much fun! This year she is creating a new one, The ADVENT 2019 KAL, so check it out the information to join below : https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/ambah/3918427/1-25 . There are also loads of other projects specially designed for Advent and Mini Sets on Ravelry. The DK option is great for all the gorgeous color-work sweaters that are so popular now.

All yarns are hand dyed by Pancake and Lulu / PLYarn with professional, permanent and light fast acid fiber dyes. The sheep that supply us with our wool are 100% non-mulesed. We believe that mulesing is a cruel practice to the animals for the benefit of the wool farmer. You can be confident that PLY yarn and fiber is mulesing-free.

A note about color and monitors:
I try hard to make sure my photos capture the color of my items accurately. I also describe the colors in the description for a richer sense of the look of the item. That said, monitors do differ, sometimes brightness is turned up or down and this may account for a difference in the photo and the actual item.

My yarn and fiber is hand dyed individually by me. I don't have "dye lots" in the traditional sense. I do create several skeins at a time which can be used seamlessly in a large project. You will receive matching skeins when you order multiple skeins of the same name in a single order. However, if you order skeins with the same color name at different times, on different days, the skeins may not match exactly. It is a good practice to work rows alternating from 2 balls to even out any color variations if that is the look you desire (this is a good technique to use with all hand dyed yarn). And, as with all yarn, it is best to make sure you purchase enough for your project in the beginning.

Many of my handspun and hand dyed yarns are created "to order". While I have created careful color recipes, each batch of yarn can vary a little from the original photograph. Please be aware that your yarn may not look *exactly* as in the photograph! These variations are an intrinsic part of all hand dyed and handmade items. Rest assured, you are free to return or exchange any item (see refund section above) if you are unhappy for any reason with your purchase. The item just needs to be in original condition. Just let me know asap and I will re-do the yarn, you can choose another or I can refund your payment after I receive the return.

The sheep that supply us with our wool are 100% non-mulesed. We believe that mulesing is a cruel practice to the animals for the benefit of the wool farmer. You can be confident that PLY yarn and fiber is mulesing-free.

Gifts:
Let me know if your order is a gift. I will leave out the invoice and include your personal message to the recipient. Gift wrapping, for a small fee, is also an option at checkout.

Thank you and have a lovely day!!
