If you would like to see the new 2020 Surprise Advent Kit based on The Unicorn Tapestries, it is here. 

This kit can be ordered for Ready to Ship now or as an Advent Kit and shipped September 30, 2020 with each skein separately wrapped and numbered, which provides a cushion for Advent for international customers.  Unless the "Wrapped and Shipped as an Advent Kit" option is chosen, it is shipped unwrapped in a nice kit package.  There may be a day or two delay on shipping for the Ready to Ship option.  The yarn is all ready, but since there are so many options, the kit is not assembled until it is ordered.

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.  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.

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.  The same color is available in Aussie Extra Fine Fingering here.

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.  If you select this as an Advent Kit, please email me to let me know when you would like it shipped for it to arrive in time for Advent (the default is September 30). 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.
