This is a PREORDER listing for this year's advent calender. Please read the full listing before purchasing. This listing will remain active until end of June 2023 OR until I have reached capacity. 
I am really excited to start dyeing this year's advent calendar! This year's theme is The Poison Garden and will be a moody, fairly dark offering of colourways, each one created for this advent, themed on the poisonous plants and berries that can be found growing in our gardens. They will be arranged to fade/flow from one to the next. The mood board should give you some idea of the colours I'm thinking about
The daily advent contains 25 individually wrapped mini skeins as well as a couple of carefully chosen themed extras* and a handmade project bag using themed fabric picked especially for this advent. All of the above comes in a lovely presentation box which can be reused afterwards.
*extras may be edible or scented, please advise of any allergies
There are 3 different yarn base options to chose from. The lovely 'smooth' sock, the 'soft twisty' sock and the 'smooth' DK. There are different sizes of mini skeins available. Both sock options are available in 5g, 10g, 20g and 50g skeins and the DK base is available in 10g, 20g and 50g skeins.

Due to the hand dyed nature of hand dyed yarns, no two skeins are exactly identical, even when dyed together at the same time within the same dye lot.

Yarn is thoroughly rinsed in plain water, (we do not use soaps or soaks, scented or otherwise) but a small amount of colour run may occur during the first wash, especially if a soap or soak is used. Although this yarn is superwash and can be machine washed on a wool setting, hand washing is recommended in cool/lukewarm water then lay flat to dry.

Each skein has been hand dyed using professional grade colourfast dyes. All yarn bases have been ethically sourced and are cruelty free (non-mulesing).

We always try to accurately represent yarn colours but due to monitor variations the colours may vary slightly. Our photos are taken in natural light

We are a smokefree, pet friendly household. All of our yarns are stored away from the pets and every care is taken to ensure our pets do not come into contact with the yarn.
