Please note! Whilst I am still happy to take orders for these, depending on where you live in the world I CAN NO LONGER GUARANTEE delivery in time for 1 December. But I will get out to you as soon as I can. Please convo me for more information. Yarn advents also may be still available by special request.
After much planning I am now unveiling my themes for the Christmas 2017 yarn and art batt advents that I am selling. There are two sizes available.
Each of the varieties tells a story and the colors are complex and varied.
You will receive a delicious, luxury fabric advent calendar to hang on the wall which has 26 pockets... one for each day in December and one extra .... my Christmas gift to you! The pockets are not numbered but one starts at the top and works down so it is reusable all year around and is refillable in subsequent years. The fabrics range from luxury silk, satin, sparkle organza and deep rich velvets and soft linen. The calendar hangs up with pretty ribbon.
Each pocket has a gift wrapped mini art batt with charm which is 40g in weight. That's 1000g of fibre alone in total and you will also open on 25 December the bonus pocket which contains a mega sized 200g batt! So 1200g of fibre all told in each advent calendar.
The colours are wonderfully complex with the colours progressively telling a story. Photographs will be available soon but I'm not revealing the colourways as they are all brand new and created especially for this project and unique to each advent theme. If you would like a rough idea please convo me and I can give you an idea of the colours used. There will be luxury merino, silk, glitter, beads charms ribbon and much more. All the batts are soft and luxurious to touch.
Each day there is a little piece of card with the description of what the mini batt is about.... like the white rabbit mini skein from the wonderland theme which has seven different white and cream shades, silk, silver sparkle and a bit of gold to represent his pocket watch. There's also a few red slubs for his pocket handkerchief.
If you or your gift recipient likes any colourway in particular then in January I am opening orders for extra amounts of any of the colourways in any quantity. So if you want to save a mini skein or batt for a special project you will be able to buy as much as you need. Do also look at the mini yarn advent calendar which has the same themes and colourways just in handspun yarn.
This is an ideal gift for oneself or the creative in your life. Unlike most advent preorders these will be shipped within 2 weeks of preorder..... just no peeking until December!! There will be limited numbers as they are made with a lot of love and even more time so there are only so many available.
Thank you for looking at my shop and if you have any questions please get in touch. I am happy to make yarn in any colour or combination of colours.
The colour is baby safe and non toxic.
I love this Advent Calendar. The batts are wonderful and the whole package has been created so nicely even including some fabric so one can turn this into a wall hanging quite easily. Unpacking the fibre of the day soothes my soul after a busy workday and the fibre and the colours are soul food much better than chocolate.
