The I Love Neutrals Advent Kit is Ready to Ship now!
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 or Aussie Extra Fine Sock w/Nylon (same base as the Unicorn Tapestries Advent Kit ) in colors dyed to play well together in a neutral palette. All of the 25 individual mini skein packages will be shipped together in a trackable package. These are all normally stocked Amanda Hope Yarn colors, so it's a great introduction to the Amanda Hope Yarn aesthetic. The skeins will be individually wrapped and numbered for you to open on December 1 - 25.
If you'd like a list of the colors download it here. That way if you only need a partial kit, you can chose your own minis. This is the listing that is included in the kit (just in case you purchase the kit, but misplace your list!)
If you'd like a full skein to go with this kit, for Aussie Extra Fine Sock with Nylon, I recommend Charcoal as a full skein. It is here.
If you're not sure you want to weave in 50 ends, Casapinka has indicated 4 skeins will work for her design, so check out the Quartets listed under Kits here. They are all listed as Dyed to Order, but many are actually in stock and will ship right away if so. There are too many choices to set aside inventory in kits at this time of year (sweater weather!:) ).
If you'd like mohair for the Radvent Throw by Amabah O'Brien, the pattern calls for 5- 6 skeins. I suggest you use it in its natural color ("undyed") so that muting of the mini colors is limited (and a little more budget friendly), but of course, any neutral will work. You may have to order it "Dye Any Repeatable Colorway" due to the number of skeins needed.
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 or you can order a Deep South Fiber printed copy of the pattern with a Ravelry download code as an option in this listing.
As always, your yarn will ship within the U.S. for just $3.
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. 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.
