Advent Calendars are so much fun but why let just the kids have all that fun! With these Special Edition Yarnoholics 2017 Advent calendars you can join in on the lead up to Christmas with a little something special each day just for yourself.
Every day from December 1st through December 25th there will be an individually wrapped and numbered gift for you to open. They are a surprise of course but an indication of what those gifts might be is listed below under the options available.
The Advent Calendars are for PRE-ORDER and will be shipped at the beginning of November to Australian Yarnoholics and mid October to International destinations, to arrive in time for you to begin the fun on 1st December.
What can you do with only 10 grams of sock yarns? A quick Ravelry search has bought up so many ideas and options. Of course there is always the option to a make a larger project in beautiful stripes or motifs or add to your memory blankets and mood scarves or temperature themed knits.

For our Naturally dyed yarns please note that they tend to fade gently with time, washing and wear and this is a normal occurence. However we take extreme care and used traditional tried and true methods when dyeing with natural ingredients to infuse the dye as much as possible. We use mordants which help the yarn retain colour for as long as possible as well.
