Van Gogh Advent Yarn Kit of 25 mini skeins, 20 grams each (approx. 88 yards) Ships November


- +


"I dream my painting and then I paint my dream."  Vincent Van Gogh

This is for a PREORDER to ship the first week of November 2021.  It is planned as a "Surprise" and packaged in 25 individual bags, numbered 1-25 as an "Advent" kit.  The colorways will be arranged in a pleasing order, but not strictly as a fade.  There will be both tonals and a few speckles/multicolors, arranged to illicit the feeling of Van Gogh's art.  Look to Van Gogh's art to imagine the lovely colors that will be included.  You will also find a few knitting related surprises from us.

Shipping for this kit is only $3.  Please order it separately from anything else you order.

The mini skeins are 20 gram mini skeins (a total of 500 grams, each skein approximately 87/88 yards) in Aussie Extra Fine Sock w/Nylon, which is a very versatile yarn, appropriate for shawls, socks, garments, etc.   It is still soft due to the extra fine merino, but the addition of a mere 15% nylon gives it extra strength.  You can use this yarn in projects combining the same base or Aussie Extra Fine 4 ply and you won't be able to tell the difference. 

Each skein will be individually labeled and numbered for you. 

If you'd like a full skein in a to go with this kit, add it from the pull down menu.  The full skein will be a tonal.

And don't forget to check out Ambah O'Brien's Advent patterns.  She also hosts an Advent KAL on Ravelry every December.
