Advent, Days 5-8

Advent, Days 5-8

I hope you enjoyed your advent calendar! Or if you didn't get one, I hope you enjoyed watching each new colorway! I have LOVED watching! I hugely underestimated how much time/work would be required to make this yarn advent happen, so now finally being able to see people enjoy it makes my day! It has been such a light in my day. Thank you for that!

I purposely kept 25 skeins of each colorway just in case anyone wanted more of a specific colorway(s) or if anyone else wanted to make a fun striped beanie or something. DK weight minis aren't as common (usually minis are in sock/fingering weight) but I like to knit or crochet with DK because its the Goldilocks weight -- not to thick and not too thin.

Each colorway is listed individually so you can buy just one mini skein or multiple. These minis will be shipped like regular skeins - not as part of an advent.

Day 5 colors: Plum, golden yellow, rusty orange, some white possible
Day 6 colors: shades of orange, white
Day 7 colors: shades of gray
Day 8 colors: forest green, yellow, brown, some white possible
Yards: +\- 24 (10 grams)
Weight: Percy DK
Fiber: 75% superwash merino, 25% nylon
Care instructions: Superwash wool will not felt in a washing machine (do NOT dry in a dryer). However, I still suggest hand washing, lay flat and shape to dry.

NOTE: Most tap water has a higher than desirable (for hand-dyed wool) pH level. You can neutralize this by simply adding 2 tablespoons, per gallon of water, of white vinegar to your wash water. That will neutralize the pH levels and help maintain the vibrant colors.
