Pre-order your 2022 Advent Yarn Kit now! This year's theme: Mad for Plaid!

Plaid, or the correct terminology, tartan, has a rich history woven both in wool fiber and historical context. Irish and Scottish clans historically had unique and individual tartans. Through years of war and control by the English monarchy, tartans have been both suppressed and celebrated. Let's go on a fiber and historical journey together this Advent season! Each skein will be a surprise colorway inspired by a specific tartan.

This year we're offering two options: 25 (20g) minis or 5 (100g) full skeins. Both are 80% Superwash merino, 20% nylon; fingering weight. 

Both boxes will include an extra full skein for Boxing Day! Additionally, both options include a project bag, and LOTS of bonus goodies. Each skein will be individually wrapped and numbered, to be opened (should you choose) each day of December from the 1st to the 26th! Each surprise colorway will come with an information card, providing historical context of the tartan which inspired its colorway, along with some other tartan related history. There is an optional add-on* of Suri alpaca/silk or kid mohair/silk.

Boxes will ship mid-November.

*To add-on more than one skein of either suri or mohair (Fuzzy Add-On Option section): click on the fuzz factor(s) you wish to include with your Advent box; then go to your cart. Select the Fuzzy Add-On Option line item you want to more of. It will take you a page for that item. Click add to cart. It will then take you to your cart and you should see your Advent Box, Fuzzy Add-On, and then another line item of Fuzzy Add-On. Email us if you need help with this: m1yarnsinfo@gmail.com
