Joy skein wooden box engraved advent calander gift

Our 2020 advent calendars come in a wooden box – great storage for projects or tools once you’ve worked through all 24 mini skeins. We’re happy to add the recipients name at no extra cost, making this an extra special gift.

So what’s in the box? We’ve dyed our gorgeous Blue Faced Leicester, mulberry silk and baby alpaca yarn in a 24 shade colourwheel and you’ll get 10 grams (40 meters) of each colour.

That gives you 240 grams and 960 meters of yarn – plenty for a generous shawl or lots of colourwork in a special sweater.

We’re very aware that increasing rates of Covid-19 could make deliveries slower – so our advent calendars will be ready to post from Tuesday 13th October. Orders after that date will have a 48 turnaround as we’re laser cutting the boxes to order.We’re using tracked and signed for post (that’s included in the price), so if there are any delays you’ll be able to see where your parcel is for added peace of mind.

The advent calenders come with a welcome letter and a postcard showing each colour and what number it is. That means that you can choose to work though the colours in any order without having to open all of the parcels. This card is sealed in an envelope marked colour spoiler so the recipient can choose to wait and be surprised or open the envelope and start planning.

We haven’t included extra treats and decorations in the box as we wanted to allow you the chance to keep things simple. If you’d like to add a little something more the there’s space to tuck in a needle gauge, some stitch markers and a sewing needle.

Each mini skein is individually wrapped in a brown paper bag and has a shiny red number on it – so all you have to do is open a skein a day and enjoy the yarn.
