If you would like to see the new 2020 Surprise Advent Kit based on The Unicorn Tapestries, it is here. 

This kit can be ordered for Ready to Ship now or as an Advent Kit and shipped September with each skein separately wrapped and numbered, which provides a three month cushion for Advent for international customers.  Unless the "Wrapped and Shipped as an Advent Kit" option is chosen, it is shipped unwrapped in a nice kit package.  There may be a day or two delay on shipping for the Ready to Ship option.  The yarn is all ready, but since there are so many options, the kit is not assembled until it is ordered.

This listing is for a set of 25 skeins of 20 gram mini skeins (a total of 500 grams, each skein approximately 87/88 yards) in Aussie Extra Fine Fingering 4 ply yarn in colors dyed to play well together, especially for Ambah's ADVENTuous Wrap, ADVENTurer Wrap, the 2019 Advent Wrap or any other pattern that calls for 25 colors.  All of the 25 individual mini skein packages will be shipped together in a trackable package.  If you'd like a listing of the colors included, please email me. These are all normally stocked Amanda Hope Yarn colors, so it's a great introduction to the Amanda Hope Yarn aesthetic.

If you'd like a full skein to go with this kit, I recommend  Charcoal or or Naked (click on color to go there) in Aussie Extra Fine Fingering, 4 ply.  Neither of these colors is in this kit.

Thank you to customer Cindy L. for the pic of her gorgeous Adventurer Wrap.  The striped wrap is the Adventuring Wrap.  Both are by designer Ambah O'Brien and are available on Ravelry.com.

As always, your yarn will ship within the U.S. for just $3.  Please check our other listing for sock minis if you'd like to do socks with mini skeins.  These skeins are a bit too soft and delicate for sock toes or heels.

If you're outside of the US,  I will ship your kit for $9.  Please  determine that there is no difficulty with the US post office shipping your yarn internationally due to the current pandemic.  If you select this as an Advent Kit, please email me to let me know when you would like it shipped for it to arrive in time for Advent (the default is September 30). Any customs, duties, or other fees that your country charges will be your responsibility, so please be familiar with the fees that might be imposed by your government before you order.
