 Advent calendar 2022: Brown paper packages tied up with string.

Please check out your Advent calendar separately to any other purchases.

This is the sixth year of the Rose Hip Island Advent Calendar. I am happy to introduce a new yarn base this year, the amazing merino silk from White Gum Wool here in Tasmania. Due to the different properties of this yarn (compared to superwash wool/nylon bases) this Advent set will naturally have a different look to my previous years. With all natural non-superwash fibres the colourways will be more subtle. 

With a more luxurious base and a generous meterage per 100g the minis will this year be 10g. I believe this will result in a good amount of yarn at an affordable price.

The Calendar includes 25 * 10g mini skeins all individually packaged and numbered 1-25.  The minis that are included in the set are all new OOAK (one of a kind) tonal,  variegated and speckled colourways. They will all work well together for a large project or in smaller subsets for smaller items.

White Gum Wool merino/silk- 70% Tasmanian merino and 30% silk base with approx. 472m/100gram. Fingering weight. Reinforced twist on twist spin.

The minis can be used for any garment, accessory, blanket etc. The total metres of yarn is 1180m, with each mini having close to 50m each.

I would like to make a note that these minis will be secret colourways and if you have a particular project in mind to make I can't guarantee that the colourways or order of opening will be what you find the most appropriate for your project. 

There will be some small surprises. 

Shipping: Calendars will be sent out early November to reach their destination in time for December 1st 2022. I ship with Australia Post and will include tracking for a bit more security. Shipping is added at check out.

Open to Australian shipping addresses only.
