This is the pre order for The Plant-Based Advent Calendar 2024 

This Advent Calendar is the perfect gift for any yarn lover this holiday season. Each day unwrap a surprise mini skein. There is no better way to countdown to Christmas Day than to slow down and knit(or crochet!) your way through the holidays!

The calendars will contain 24 mini skeins in a whole range of colours and dyeing techniques so each day will be a surprise. All these colourways will complement each other really well, and the full skein opened on christmas day will bind all the colorways together making this collection of yarn ideal for a single project should you wish.

The pictures shown are just examples and the colorways in the calander are a surprice

About our Mini Skein Advent Calendars:

- Your calendar will ship in early November to allow plenty of time for it to arrive to you by December 1st..

- Each Calendar includes 24 individually wrapped (in cute gingerhouse boxes) and labeled mini skeins to be opened every day from December 1st to 24th and on Christmas Day you will get to open a full 100 g skein. So the calendars comes with a total yardage of 2,537 yards (2320 m)!

You can also add an extra full skein if you would like one.

  • Each mini skein is 20g/80m (87 yards) of tencel or 20g/80m (87 yards) of bamboo (read about the different bases down below)

    Tencel is one of the most eco-friendly fibres around, made from sustainably harvested eucalyptus trees. Embrace mother nature in all her glory with this miracle material.

    Advantages of Tencel Fiber:

    1. Eco Print:
    Made from the natural cellulose found in wood pulp. The fiber is economical in its use of energy and natural resources, and is fully biodegradable.

    2. Moisture Absorbent:
    This fiber has natural breathability and 50% greater moisture absorption than cotton.

    3. Heat Capacity and Thermoregulation:
    Water has a high heat capacity. Therefore, fibers which contain water will also have a high heat capacity. This can be used to help the human body’s temperature regulation. On the water vapor absorption isotherm we have seen that tencel fibre always contains water.

    4. Anti-bacterial:
    Due to its moisture management, Tencel is also anti-bacterial. Tencel has an extremely smooth, soft surface that drapes beautifully to flatter every figure.

    5. Great for Sensitive Skin:
    Tencel’s smooth fiber surface feels soft and supple against the skin and its incredible wicking abilities keep the skin dry, making tencel a great fabric for sensitive skin. Fibers with poor water absorption capacity result in textiles which cling to the skin when they are wet. Wet skin is much more sensible to irritation than dry skin. The coarseness, the stiffness and the surface character of the fibers will also have an impact on the skin’s sensory perception.

    6. Durable:
    This super fiber can hold up to a beating when both we and dry, and is most conveniently resistant to wrinkles.

    Bamboo
    Bamboo yarn has become increasingly popular among knitters in recent years due to its eco-friendly properties and luxuriously soft texture. It comes from the Asian bamboo tree and can be harvested without actually killing the plant, making it a sustainable option.

    Bamboo has plenty of other great qualities; not only is it renewable and biodegradable, it also has hypoallergenic and UV protection properties. It has the ability to evaporate moisture, making it suitable for cool, breezy garments like shawls.

    The durability and flexibility of this yarn make it a preferred material among many knitters. Its natural elasticity and softness mean it’s ideal for creating summer garments and items for babies and toddlers too.

Supplies will be purchased directly following your purchase and as a result calendars are non-refundable.  No exceptions.

I CANNOT ACCEPT RETURNS ON ADVENT ORDERS

The advents take so much time to complete - they are truly a labor of love! I really want to spread out the process over the year, so I can work on them throughout and make this the best year yet!

If paying in instalments, a non-refundable deposit plus postage will be taken upon placing the order, two additional payments will be requested on August 1 st and October 1st via PayPal - please make sure that you include your e-mail address when you order so that I can send you the invoice for the balance. Please note that this is a pre-order and that the calendar will not be sent out until full payment is received.
