This listing is for the Bluefaced Leicester DK British Yarn Advent Calendar. You can view the other Advent Calendar and Yarn Box options here.
British Bluefaced Leicester DK Advent Calendar
The Bluefaced Leicester DK British Advent Calendar contains a choice of 25 x 10g or 20g hand-dyed mini-skeins of non-superwash British Bluefaced Leicester DK yarn. The yarn is plump and squishy with a subtle lustre. It is great for garments and accessories and is soft enough for most people to wear against sensitive skin such as their neck. It is not suitable for socks. It has 225m per 100g. As it has not been superwash treated it requires hand washing. You can read more about the Bluefaced Leicester yarn base on the blog.
You can also choose to add one or two full skeins of yarn to your order in either a semi-solid colour designed to compliment the mini-skein colours, or undyed.
The mini-skeins will be dyed using a range of techniques (semi-solid, tonal, variegated) with a minimum of five skeins of each.
There will be a few small extras included, some of which may be food based. For this reason if you have any allergies/intolerances please let me know.
There are two packaging options available. Both are available as Christmas themed or non-Christmas themed.
- Advent (Individually wrapped) – This is the traditional option for an Advent calendar. Each mini-skein is individually wrapped and numbered.
- Low packaging – The skeins are unwrapped. This is the perfect option for filling your own refillable Advent Calendar.
The packaging for the Advent Calendars is fully recyclable. Please note that that the yarn Advent calendars aren’t packaged like a traditional boxed Advent Calendar. The box the mini-skeins arrive in will be plain.
You can choose whether to pay the full cost up-front or spread the cost over four months. Payment will be due by the 14th of each month. Reminder emails will be sent three days before payment is due.
The total price includes tracked UK shipping. International orders will be sent tracked and the cost of this will be calculated on checkout. I am currently unable to ship to the EU due to tax changes on 1st July. I hope to be able to open up EU orders again once this has been sorted.
Orders will begin to be shipped from 11th October 2021, with international orders being sent first. All international orders will be posted by Friday 28th October, and all UK orders will be posted by Friday November 12th.
