  • includes tote bag and project bag
  • personalise the project bag tag

What’s better than lots of colour? Even more colour. Our 2021 advent calendar gives you 24 colours to play with. The colours make up a stunning colour wheel. It’s up to you if you choose to work with them in order for a glorious gradient or mix them up for stunning stripes.

Our advent calendar comes in a cotton tote bag which is embroidered with an original design which will delight yarn lovers. We're also including a zipped cotton pouch with a matching design. To help make this extra special we're able to add a name or short message to the wooden tag on the pouch - fewer than 20 letters is ideal, but if you need to say more please let us know and we'll do our best.

Each of the 24 mini skeins will be individually wrapped  and numbered – and we’ll make it easy for you to be sure that you can open the skeins in the order you want to work them by including a  postcard showing which colour is in which parcel. The images shown are of one of the 2020 advent calendars - so these won't be the colours you receive, but it lets you see how the postcard makes it easy to plan your project. The card comes in a envelope, so you can choose not to open this if you'd prefer to keep the colours a surprise.

As well as yarn, tote bag and project bag we’ll include six decorations and lots of extra treats too. None of the treats will be edible. Advent calendars will be posted at the start of November and will be sent by tracked and signed for post.

We’re offering two yarn choices for your advent calendar.

Our much loved Britsock base is a gorgeous 4ply or fingering weight yarn which works beautifully for garments and shawls, and is ideal for socks. Britsock is 40% British Blue Faced Leicester, 20% British Masham, 20% British Alpaca and 20% nylon. The wools have not been superwash treated.

Our Blue Faced Leicester and nylon 4py is perfect for you if you'd like a yarn that's superwash. This yarn is a real star - hard wearing enough to make socks that last, yet gentle next to your skin.

Both advent calendars contains 24 x 10 gram skeins (240 grams and 960 meters in total)

All versions come in a tote bag and contain the same decorations and treats. Buying everything in the advent calendar separately would cost more than £220 (or £160 if you wanted the 10g skeins). Buying this as a bundle and paying upfront saves you more than 30%. The extra things that go into this advent calendar mean we can make a maximum of 60 of them. Once these sell we may consider a version without all the extras, but this won't offer close to the same level of discount.

Advent calendar prices include tracked and signed for postage – so you’ll be asked to select where the parcel is going.  Currently the post office are advising that tracked and signed for delivery takes 5-7 days for USA, Australia and New Zealand. Parcels will be posted on Monday 1st November. We hope that giving parcels a month to arrive will be plenty of time however we can’t guarantee delivery by a given date. Overseas postage costs are slightly below what it will cost to send the parcel and reflect the higher prices we’re now being charged. If prices rise again between now and when we post your parcel we’ll cover that cost. Given the uncertain times we're living in we'll aim to have all parcels ready to post by the start of October, so we can offer you the option of having your parcel arrive sooner.

We appreciate that not everyone wants to pay for an advent calendar in one go. If you'd prefer to pay in 4 equal installments you can do so here.

We need to know
