Please fill in the form at the bottom of this page if you would like to sign up for a Yarn Advent Calendar or the non-Christmas-themed alternative. This will guarantee there will be a yarn box available for you to buy any time before the end of August. I will email you a link to do this once ordering has opened. If you change your mind after you’ve sent me the form, that’s fine, just drop me a message and I can make your box available for somebody else.
Please Note: While every effort will be made to create a box to your exact specifications this cannot be 100% guaranteed. Last year I had problems ordering one of the yarn bases. I will make it clear when ordering if this has happened and will make it clear what the substitution is. It will be your decision whether you continue with your order and you will not be penalised if you choose not to.
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)
- 12 x 20g mini-skeins (£62)
- 12 x 50g skeins (£120)
- 12 x 100g skeins (£220)
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)
- 25 x 100g skeins (£420 – UK Only)
- 12 x 20g mini-skeins (£56)
- 12 x 50g skeins (£100)
- 12 x 100g skeins (£195)
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:
- Advent 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.
Yarn Advent Calendar & Yarn Treat Box Sign-Up Form
I will email you once ordering has opened, and one week before the end of August if you haven’t placed an order. If I don’t receive your order by the end of August and you haven’t sent me a message, your box will be made available to anyone wishing to order it.
