This years advent calendar theme is based on the enchanted forest... think poison apples, mossy forest floors, magic potions and all the rest. The colours will be a fade of rich, deep colours with plenty of speckles and subtle variegated tones. This listing is for the 100g optional skein for the 25th of December only. 

There are eight options for the yarn base as follows, please be aware that the NSW fingering, yak sock and Donegal tweed sock will take the dyes differently so the final advent will look quite different if you order any of those bases.

The first yarn is our classic merino sock base, making it perfect for all projects. It is 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. Beautifully soft but also hard-wearing, this yarn is suitable for any project. 85m per 20g mini skein.

The second yarn is our luxe sock base. This sock base has to be my favourite - 75% 19.5micron Superwash Merino and 25% nylon - twisted into a beautiful 3ply yarn. Slightly more twisted than our usual merino sock, this yarn is wonderfully soft and perfect for wearing against your skin. It takes dye beautifully and speckles really pop with the nature of the twist of the yarn. This yarn is perfect for any project, from socks to shawls and sweaters too. 85m per 20g mini.

The third yarn is our Gold Twinkle Sock base. 

This sparkly yarn is a blend of 75% superwash merino, 20% nylon and 5% stellina. The sparkle in this yarn is subtle and gives the finished fabric such a lovely lustre which looks amazing in the light. The nylon content makes this yarn hardwearing so it is ideal for all projects from socks to garments. 75m per 20g mini skein.

The fourth option is our Merino singles base. 

This fingering weight yarn is 100% merino wool. The single ply gives this yarn a silky looking finish that makes the colours shine. Due to the single ply and lack of nylon, this yarn isn’t durable enough for socks. However it makes stunning shawls as it has a lovely drape and a beautiful stitch definition which works particularly well for brioche and lace patterns. It also pairs wonderfully with either of our fluffy laceweight yarns. 72m per 20g mini.

The fifth yarn base is our NSW fingering base. This yarn is perfect for those of you who prefer non superwash. It is 100% 20.5 micron non superwash merino, making it super soft and perfect for garment and shawl knitting. 80m per 20g mini.

The sixth yarn base is our Donegal Tweed Sock. 

This beautiful fingering weight base is 85% Superwash Merino and 15% Donegal Neps. The Donegal neps are black, brown and white and give a lovely tweed effect. Ideal for all projects from socks to sweaters. 80m per 20g mini.

The seventh yarn base is our Yak sock. 

Our Yak and Merino fingering base is composed of 70% superwash merino, 20% yak and 10% nylon. The natural colour of the yak makes the dye colours so rich and opulent. The finished fabric is beautifully soft and the nylon makes it robust enough for any project. 80m per 20g mini.

The eighth and final yarn base option is our Merino Nylon DK. This base is made up of 75% superwash merino and 25% Nylon. It's beautifully soft and squishy, while also being durable due to the nylon content. This yarn is ideal for all projects from socks to garments. 45m per 20g mini skein.

This is a pre order, and will be dyed and shipped by the middle of October. Shipping has been calculated based on the weight of the advent only. Please do not add anything else to your order for your advent, as it will not ship until the advent does. All kits will be sent on a tracked and signed for service. I have worked out the shipping charges based on current Royal Mail prices, if these prices increase dramatically between now and October, there may be a small surcharge to pay.

There are two payment options: pay in full or in instalments. Please make sure you supply me with your correct email address, so that I can invoice you correctly for the further two instalments this summer. In the event that these two instalments are not paid, the advent calendar will not be supplied and the initial deposit will not be refunded.
