2021 Yarn Advent Calendar - Tropics/Beach
This is my first ever time doing yarn advent calendars. I am both super excited and very nervous. Spots are limited as I don’t want to overwhelm myself the first year.
The theme is tropics with an emphasis on beaches, sand and discoveries one can make at the beach. Come with me as I explore sand colors, sea glass, seashells and tropical flowers. Expect an emphasis of blues and greens with pinks, yellows, reds and purples thrown in. This will not fade but everything will go together cohesively. You can expect both tonals and variegates with the occasional speckled colorway. (When I say speckles, I mean a variegated colorway with speckles in it.)
The yarn advent will consist of 24 20-gram minis on your choice of base, each individually packaged and numbered for daily opening, and a full skein of the same base for Christmas Day. Additional treats with awesome collaborators have also been lined up to open along the way. These may include tea, markers, hand cream and more.
These orders are non-refundable and will be mailed mid-to-end of October in an effort to avoid any holiday shipping delays in the mailing system. Shipping is included for domestic United States.
Yarn Base Options:
Boardwalk Sock: 75% Superwash Merino wool, 25% Nylon - 4ply - 92yds/20g // 463 yds/100g
Boardwalk DK: 75% Superwash Merino wool, 25% Nylon - 4 ply // 49yds/20g // 245yds/100g
Yarn is soaked in a yuzu scented wool wash before being rinsed until the water runs clear. Some color bleeding for the first few washes may be possible. It is advised to wash your makes separately.
Additionally, I recommend washing handmade items with a mild detergent and laying flat to dry. Superwash items can possible be machine washing on gentle cycle but I can not be held responsible for any mishaps. Non-Superwash items should DEFINITELY be hand washed.
All yarn comes from a pet friendly home, specifically cats as the dog has zero access to my studio. Twisted and labeled yarn is kept from up and away from possible kitty snuggles but please keep this information in mind when purchasing.
