The Amanda Hope Yarn Advent Kit for 2022 will be based on Musee Cluny:  The Lady and the Unicorn and will be mostly tonals.  This is yet another set of unicorn tapestries that I love.  There have been so many requests to re-dye the 2020 Unicorn Tapestries Advent Kit, which was based on the tapestries hanging at the Cloisters of the Met in NYC, that I declined, but which convinced me that my customers share my fascination with Medieval Art and colors and unicorns!  I estimate that it will be available to PreOrder on July 15, 2022, BUT IT MAY BE LATER. If you're an email subscriber you will get advance notice.

Here's a link to a You Tube Video on the renovation of the Musee Cluny, which will give you a sense of the richness of the colors if you've never visited the museum in Paris.   My visit was several years ago and I still have haunting memories of the gorgeous tapestries and other antiquities in the museum.  It will be a rich source of inspiration for the mini colors.

Newsletter subscribers will learn first of the PreOrder.  This year's kit will include a full skein, rather than it having it optional as most ordered the full skein with their set.

⚜️ Just added a few more kits as of 11/25.  Please note that it cannot be guaranteed that your Van Gogh minis or the extra skein will arrive prior to December 1.  The plan is for everything to ship Thanksgiving week (this is the second batch/re-dyeing of the minis), but with the new pandemic shipping reality, please be patient.  Most kits are shipped UPS as it is usually projected to be the quickest shipping. Shipping is $3 flat rate for US; $19 for Canada.  Sorry, but this kit is not offered to other international destinations due to timing. ⚜️

Fingering weight 4 ply Superwash 85% 19.5 micron Extra Fine Australian Merino 15% Nylon (Aussie Extra Fine Sock w/Nylon)

Minis are 20 grams/87 yards.  Kit is for the 25 minis, each individually wrapped and numbered 1-25.. 

If you'd like the optional full skein, use the pull down menu to order it for an additional $27.  100 grams/400 meters/437 yards for OPTIONAL full skein. 

Again, the Full skein is not included in the main kit of 25 minis.  It will be available to order in January 2022 if you don't order it with your kit, so no worries if you don't know if your pattern will require a full skein or how many you'll need. The color is planned to be a regularly dyed color in our lineup.
