Who doesn't love little surprise packages at the holidays?  This listing is for a set of 24 skeins of 20 gram mini skeins (a total of 480 grams, each skein approximately 87/88 yards) in Aussie Extra Fine Sock yarn in colors dyed to play well together, especially for Ambah's ADVENT KAL.  The skeins will be individually wrapped and numbered, as a fade, in the color order we suggest you use for Ambah's pattern.  The skeins will include multi colored, tonal, and speckled colorways. 

If you'd like add  a coordinating FULL SKEIN to go with your kit, you have that option for an additional $27, just select.

According to Ambah, the pattern that uses the a coordinating full skein will also have an option to use optional kidsilk/mohair.  That option will be added once the yardage is known.  If you order before the yardage is known, you can later add the kidsilk/mohair without paying additional shipping.

You will have to trust us on the colors, that's part of the thrill.  However, if you want to see the inspiration, view the art included in this listing, or do a little research on The Unicorn Tapestries (also called The Hunt of the Unicorn).  There are 7 tapestries, which you can learn about here.

You can be sure the colors 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.   Most, if not all, 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 ADVENT KAL starts in her Ravelry group on December 1, 2020.

All of the 24 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.

If you are sending the kit as a gift, please email me and I'll disguise the return address and not include the invoice showing the amount paid.

If you're outside of the US, please email me at if you have any concerns about international shipping from the US.  I will ship your kit for $9 USD through the US Post Office.  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.  If you would like your package shipped another way, or insured, please email me before you order so I can figure out the additional charge.
