I’m excited to announce that you can now sign-up to be guaranteed the chance to order a British Yarn Advent Calendar or a non-Christmas alternative. I’m doing this so everyone who’s interested can officially register to make sure an Advent Calendar or alternative is available for them without having to worry about them going out of stock. All you have to do is fill in the form on this page and I will make sure there’s one available for you as long as you order it before the end of August.
The form will be available until ordering is opened, which I’m aiming to be Friday 10th July. I will send you an email once ordering has opened, and once a week before the end of August to remind you if you haven’t placed your order.
This year’s options:
Falkland Corriedale 4ply/Fingering
This yarn has been spun with socks in mind. Its high twist and non-superwash, meaning it is durable enough for socks, while also being great for other projects. It has 400m per 100g.
- 25 x 10g mini-skeins (£65)
- 25 x 20g mini-skeins (£95)
- 25 x 100g skeins (£450 – UK Only)

British Bluefaced Leicester DK
This is a gorgeously soft. non-superwash yarn with a wide variety of uses. It has 225m per 100g.
- 25 x 10g mini-skeins (£58)
- 25 x 20g mini-skeins (£88)

British Selection Light DK/Sport
This box is a little different in that it contains five skeins each of five British bases: Whitefaced Woodland, Dorset Horn, Romney, Wensleydale & Teeswater. Each has 300m per 100g so they can all be used together, although they do each have different characteristics. None of them have been superwash treated. I will be dyeing them so that each set of five works well together.
- 25 x 10g mini-skeins (£48)
- 25 x 20g mini-skeins (£78)
- 25 x 100g skeins (£320 – UK Only)
Every box will also have the following options:
- Christmas themed packaging – Each skein will be individually wrapped and numbered in the style of an Advent Calendar. Extras will be Christmas themed.
- Non-Christmas themed packaging – Each skein will be individually wrapped. Extras will not be Christmas themed.
- Low packaging – The skeins will be loose in their box or bag with a single layer of tissue paper to protect in transit. Extras can be either Christmas or non-Christmas themed. There will be a discount of around £5 (depending on yarn chosen) for this option.
UK postage is included. International postage will be extra when ordering. The 25 x 100g skein option is only available to order within the UK.
