++PRE-ORDER++ The Shire - December Advent Countdown Kit
December Yarn Countdown Kit: The Shire
This colorway, The Shire, is based on The Lord of the Rings and will contain plenty of earth tones such as greens, browns, golds, blues, and more. Colors will be arranged in a pleasing order, which may include a fade, but not in a "rainbow" order. There will be some speckling.
Your kit includes 24 skeins of fingering weight or DK yarn in named and repeatable colors, in your choice of yarn and skein size.
++++ ABOUT THE KITS ++++
Our December Countdown advent-style calendars are available now for pre-order. We have made the kit packaging "non-denominational" this year to include everyone (and make administration a little easier!).
++++ FULL SIZE SKEINS AND EXTRA GOODIES ++++
Full-size skeins are available to coordinate with your kit; you can find them here. All kits will include a few small surprises, and our new tote-style coordinating project bags are available now. You can add extras to your box at any time, without additional shipping costs.

1) Priority shipping is included for the US! See Shipping Notes Below!

++++ KIT PACKAGING ++++
Wrapped calendars are packaged like a traditional Advent Calendar, with skeins of yarn individually wrapped and dated. This is a good option if you want to be surprised each day, and knit in the order we have determined.
Unwrapped Calendars are packaged with the yarn immediately visible. This is a good option if you would like to see all of the colors at once and arrange them in your own order. (Unwrapped skeins come numbered with small tags so you can put them in the order we have chosen.)

++++ SHIPPING NOTES ++++
International customers will be charged the average difference between US shipping and shipping to your country. This will be $8 for Canada and $12 for international. Packages will be sent International First Class mail. Please contact me if you would like to make other arrangements.
If you were around for our 2020 countdown kits, you may remember that we ran into COVID-related USPS shipping delays, as well as a local post office delay. The issues which we have any amount of control over have been solved, and the 2021 kits will be going out in stages to prevent overwhelming the post office.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions! :)
