Advent Calendar 2023
24 x 20gr skeins of naturally dyed Bluefaced Leicester/Shetland/Alpaca, an additional full undyed skein, and goodies from local makers
Celebrate December with us!
We’re dreaming of our own homestead. The ability to grow our own food, keep our own animals and being self-sufficient is something that has been close to my heart for many years! I find it so important to teach our children to be conscious about where their food comes from, and how they can grow their own. How to fix and reuse things instead of just buying new. All this adds up to becoming more caring for our planet in my opinion.
I wanted to dedicate this year’s advent box to this mindset and share with you the cozy feelings I get just thinking about home-baked pies, freshly laid eggs, and maybe our own fleeces with legs? Who knows 🙂
Inside the box, you will find 24x20gr mini-skeins, which you can open starting December 1st. This way, by Christmas Eve you will have a full set of beautiful skeins! There is also a full 100gr undyed skein for you to combine with the minis.
The yarn base we use this year is our wonderful Bluefaced Leicester/Shetland/Alpaca. A beautiful heathered fingering weight yarn.
Bluefaced Leicester wool is soft and silky, making it a great choice for knitting a next-to-skin garment like a sweater or shawl. The drape is amazing!
The added Shetland fibers make this yarn sturdy and hardwearing, while the Alpaca adds to the drape and softness.
I love working with heathered yarn, it gives so much depth to colors, making the natural dyes seem even more alive and luxurious.
The yarn also has great stitch definition, so definitely suitable for patterns featuring drapey cables or moss stitch.
To complete the Advent Calendar 2023, I collected goodies from some local makers
This will be a surprise of course 🙂
We love to package as sustainably as possible! We love using recycled boxes, and if we have to use plastic, we make sure it’s compostable.
All skeins will be wrapped individually with love and each skein is numbered.
The Advent Calendars are coming your way in early November to ensure it arrives on time to start unwrapping 🙂
