Sorry, but the mini skeins are sold out, but this listing is still up for those who purchased kits to add an additional skein or mohair once they've chosen their Advent pattern.  Please check out the I Love Neutrals Advent kit HERE.  

Have you been to the Cloisters in New York City (a part of the Met) to see The Unicorn Tapestries aka the Hunt of the Unicorn?  It's a series of beautiful medieval tapestries, one of my favorites.  The setting is gorgeous.  The tapestries are indescribable. 

Who doesn't love little surprise packages at the holidays?  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 Sock yarn in colors dyed to play well together.  The skeins will be individually wrapped and numbered, as a fade, in the color order we suggest.  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 $25 ($2 savings), just select it from the drop down menu.  Or if you've already ordered and realize you forgot your extra skein, chose in the drop down.  If you're not sure, the colorway will be available in the online shop in December.  

If you'd like a skein  or 2 of  Superkid Mohair/Silk, it is in the same color as the additional skein or in natural (undyed).  Chose it in the drop down.  Remember the mohair will mute the multi colors, but it is yummy.  Don't rush to order it if you're not sure; it will be available in December.  Use code Advent2020 for  $3 discount, which pays for shipping on your skein if ordered separately from your kit. 

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.  Casapina and Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade also offer patterns especially for  20 gram Advent mini skeins.

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.

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 wendy@amandahopeyarn.com 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.
