- +


Ambah O'Brien's ADVENTurer KAL Kit:

3 Full Skeins of Taupe
PLUS 12 Minis in Colorways:

Pecan, Denim, Cashmere Pearl, Chartreuse, Frozen, Copper, Chambray, Barely Gray, Electrum, Peachy Tan, Violet Mints and Wisteria

(This kit has the same colors as the Cashmere Pearl kit, with the exception that the Taupe and Cashmere Pearl full/mini skeins are switched )

This listing is for a set of 12 skeins of 20 gram mini skeins (a total of 240 grams, each skein approximately 87/88 yards) in Aussie Extra Fine Fingering SINGLE ply yarn in colors dyed to play well together, especially for Ambah's ADVENTurer Wrap PLUS 3 whole skeins in a coordinating neutral. The skeins will be individually wrapped and numbered, in the color order we suggest you use for Ambah's pattern.  Each of the 12 individual mini skein packages and the 3 full size skeins will be shipped together in a trackable package (either US Postal Priority Mail or UPS).  As always, your yarn will ship within the U.S. for just $3.  

If you'd like an idea of how the pattern will knit up using a neutral plus mini skeins, see Ambah's latest newsletter.  There's a picture of the scarf version (a smaller version of the shawl) done in a solid neutral plus minis.  This kit is for the full size version, the ADVENTurer shawl.  You will use the full size skein for the odd number colors (1, 3, 5, etc.) and will start and end with it.  The mini skeins will be used for the even number colors.

Your price is $7.25/mini skein, the actual retail price of the minis plus $26 per full skein (regular price).   You will actually have a total of 540 grams, 40 grams more than the 25 mini skein kits.  As a gift to you, you will find a few little things from us for your Advent celebration.

Ambah's ADVENTurer KAL starts in her Ravelry group on December 1, 2018 and your Advent Calendar yarns will ship now (beginning Tuesday, 11/20) and depending upon how close you are to Texas, you will get it in time for you to have the yarn for the beginning of the KAL.  Generally your yarn should arrive in 2 to 3 business days.  Please know that if you order after 3 pm CST, I cannot guarantee that it will ship the same day.

Or, if somehow you resist Ambah's ADVENTurer shawl, these skeins can be used in many different patterns.  Many other designers are using minis in their patterns. Or you can always do Ambah's ADVENTous shawl from last year's KAL.  We do not recommend this yarn for socks as the extra fine merino is a bit delicate to withstand the wear and tear of socks.  Please check our other listing for sock minis if you'd like to do socks with mini skeins.

You will receive an email once the package ships.

If you're outside of the US, please email me at  I will ship your kit for $9 USD, but since there's extra paperwork and this is a more expensive item that may trigger duty, we should explore the best way to ship your yarn.  It likely will NOT arrive in time for the beginning of the KAL.  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.
