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 Fingering 4 ply yarn in colors dyed to play well together, especially for Ambah's ADVENTurer Wrap. The skeins will be individually wrapped and numbered, in the color order we suggest you use for Ambah's pattern.  All of the 25 individual mini skein packages will be shipped together in a trackable package.  As always, your yarn will ship within the U.S. for just $3.  

This is NOT the same kit as the original Surprise Advent Kit, and will not include the extra little surprises, but your price is $7.25/skein, the actual retail price of the minis.  (Sorry, the Surprise Advent Calendar Kits with gifts are sold out, but there might be a few little somethings in your kit).

Ambah's ADVENTurer KAL starts in her Ravelry group on December 1, 2018 and your Advent Calendar yarns will ship between now and November 5, 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 package ships.

If you're outside of the US, please email me at wendy@amandahopeyarn.com.  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.
