Wolbeest Yarn Advent Calendar 2022

Welcome to the annual Wolbeest Yarn Advent Calendar!

What is a yarn calendar?

An advent calendar is a countdown calendar until christmas day, a fun way to spend the time before christmas by opening a package every day. There will be 12 of 24 exclusively hand dyed mini-skeins, individually wrapped and numered and on some days there's something extra like a stitch marker or some tea and a sweet.

What’s different from last year?

First of all, there are 12 days yarn advents and 24 days this year. The 12 days advents are inclusive a 100grs skein in the same quality yarn as the mini-skeins.

Second, I will start shipping the advents in September, which means that all orders will arrive ahead of time and this wil mean less stress!

And last, I have added the option 'Dyer's Choice' if you want to order an extra 100grs skein with your yarn advent and have trouble chosing. Lots of people find it hard to choose a colour for the extra skein to match with the mini's. For those of you who like to determine the colour yourself, there are lots of colour options to choose from.

There are 8 different themes/moodboards to choose from this year:

  1. Lime & Mint (12 and 24 days!)
  2. Soft Tones
  3. Blues and Greens
  4. Speckles
  5. Brown, Beige and a bit of Blue (12 days)
  6. Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland
  7. Lord of The Rings
  8. Purple (12 days)

 

What’s included?

There will be a new package (individually wrapped) to open every day of Advent, starting from December 1st until Christmas Day. In this package will be a hand dyed mini skein (yarn of your choice) and on some days there will be an extra surprise!  

Each mini skein will be hand dyed in an exclusive colourway. You can expect solids, semi solids, variegated or speckled skeins.The skeins will be dyed in a fade, so you can start knitting right away. The colours can be knitted in the order they are opened or you can mix them in different ways.

  • 24 mini skeins (20gr.) individually wrapped and numbered;
  • goodies;
  • 2 knitting patterns, designed specially for this year’s Advent Calendar

You can choose different yarns:

All of them are very soft and can be worn on the skin.

  • Wolbeest super sock (75% sw merino – 25% nylon); 20gr./85m. or 50gr./210m.
  • Wolbeest super BFL sock (75% sw BFL – 25% nylon); 20gr./85m. 
  • Wolbeest glitter sock (75% sw merino - 20% nylon - 5% zilver Stellina); 20gr./80m.
  • Wolbeest singles (100% sw merino); 20gr./73.2m.

There is an option to order extra 100gr skeins (at additional cost) in addition to the Advent calendar, so that you have enough yarn to use for a bigger project, such as a sweater, cardigan or a bigger shawl. This extra skein will be the same quality as the mini-skeins of your calendar. This year you can also order a mohair-silk skein, fun to knit together with the mini-skeins as it creates a lovely halo or you can use it to combine with the other yarn.

If you don’t want to order an extra skein, click ‘none’ in the dropdown list otherwise the programme won’t let you continue.

Payment and price:

There is a special price for everyone who buys a calendar before the 16 of April, a special early bird discount of 5%! You can use the code: EARLYBIRD2022 at the checkout. It is possible to pay for the calendar in 2 installments (no early bird discount). If you would like to pay in installments, please send me an e-mail: info@hetwolbeest.nl.

Once purchased, I will begin ordering supplies straight away. I’m afraid I cannot accept cancellations.

Shipment:

Europe and The Netherlands: orders will be shipped starting September 2022.

Canada and the USA: orders will be shipped starting September 2022.

NOTE! Once purchased, your yarn advent box will not ship until September 2022!!!
*After the item is shipped I am not responsible for any postal delays or the lost of packages. As soon as it is shipped you will receive a t&t.

IF YOU ORDER OTHER ITEMS TOGETHER WITH THE ADVENT CALENDAR, THEN THESE WILL SHIP AT THE SAME TIME/TOGETHER. Should you want to receive these items earlier, then order these items separately please.

Until what date can I order?

This advent is a pre-order and I will keep this open until the 15th of June 2021.

There is also a beautiful, Christmas themed projectbag that you can buy, big enough to keep all your mini-skeins nice and snug (or 2 sockknitting projects)!

Thank you so much for your order and for supporting of my shop!
