What is a yarn advent kit?

Good question! Traditional advent calendars have small doors or chocolates to open each day in December leading up to Christmas.

Advent calendars for adults have become more popular over the past years including ones for tea, wine, chocolate, and even beauty products. You can have one containing your favorite thing - yarn! Each day will reveal a mini skein, 24 in total.

Please read all of the information below before making your selections.

+++

Your set includes 24 skeins of fingering weight, DK, or worsted weight yarn in your chosen color theme and skein size. See the details of each yarn option below.

The Full size calendar includes 24 mini skeins of yarn, 20g each.
The Mini size calendar includes 24 micro skeins of yarn, 10g each. 

++++ Set PACKAGING ++++
Wrapped sets come packaged like a traditional Advent Calendar with small, dated packages of individual skeins to be opened each day, December 1st-24th.

This is a good option if you want to be surprised daily and knit in the order we have determined.

Unwrapped sets  are packaged with the skeins immediately accessible. This is a  good option if you would like to see all of the colors at once.

Unwrapped skeins come with numbered tags so you can put them in the order we have chosen - or design your own.

 

++++ Is this just too many choices? Decision fatigue is real! Click here to buy a pre-selected set - you only need to pick your theme.

 

+++Deluxe Sets+++
There are a very small number of deluxe advent sets available this year. They contain the advent yarn set plus a Christmas-sized pile of gifts picked just for you. Find out more about them here.

++++ SNEAK PEEKS ++++
