  • Details
    Introducing the 2018 PLYarn Mini Skein Advent Calendar! Pre-order now to receive by December 1st. These are limited edition, so order now to be sure to get one!

    Each day of December until Christmas, you will get to open a surprise mini skein of yarn (plus some other holiday or fiber related goodies)! What could be more fun for a knitter or fiber crafter?! Each mini skein is 87 yards (20 gms) of hand dyed fingering weight yarn. You can use these as you open them for a special Advent project or just collect them for your stash. The colors will be a combination of speckle and semi solids to create a beautiful flow of color which can be combined as they are opened or used in a modular project or in many other ways. The total amount of yarn is enough for 5 pairs of socks, a nice size shawl or many other projects. The yarn bases will be a selection of any of my available minis: either 100% merino wool, merino nylon or sparkle merino.

    IMPORTANT: All Advent Calendars will all ship out by 3rd week of November, so you will have yours in time for December 1st.

    My advent calendar is inspired by my participation in last year's ADVENTUROUS Wrap a Knit-Along by Ambah O'Brien. She created a pattern for a beautiful shawl that used 24 Mini Skeins, each yarn was opened in the morning and a few rows were knit using the yarn of the day. It was so much fun! This year she is creating a new one, The ADVENTurer 2018 KAL, so check it out the information to join below :
    There are also loads of other projects specially designed for advent and minis on Ravelry.

    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 handpainted 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.

    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!!
