Who doesn't love little surprise packages at the holidays? For the first time ever, Amanda Hope Yarn is doing a yarn Advent Calendar kit.   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 Single yarn in colors dyed to play well together, especially for Ambah's ADVENTurer Wrap (and we know because we've seen a picture of the wrap ... it's gorgeous!)  The skeins will be individually wrapped and numbered, in the color order we suggest you use for Ambah's pattern.  On some days, there will be an extra goody included your wrapped mini skein package (mostly knitting notions).  All of the 25 individual wrapped mini skein packages will be shipped together in a trackable package.  As always, your yarn will ship within the U.S. for just $3.

You will have to trust us on the colors, that's part of the thrill.  You can be sure they will be in Amanda Hope Yarn's normal style of sophisticated, wearable colors.  No neon's here, nothing jarring, and not holiday colors.  Your colors will be wearable year around.  Some of the colors will be repeatable colors you've seen before, sometimes tweaked to blend with others better; others will be new colors developed to play well with the palette.  All colors will be labeled and repeatable, so if you love them and must have a full skein, you'll have the information you need.

Ambah's ADVENTurer KAL  starts in her Ravelry group on December 1, 2018 and your Advent Calendar yarns will ship between November 5 and 15, 2018, in time for you to have the yarn for the KAL.

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 Advent package ships in November.  If your address changes, please email prior to November 1, 2018, so there will be time to change your address.

If you would like to order any additional yarn, please email me first so I can send you a code for free shipping (US only) for your additional items, unless you are willing to wait until November for your other items so they can be shipped together with your Advent kit.  I will send everything together unless I hear from you.

Only US customers should order here.  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.  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.
