Because of the quantities needed to purchase of EACH fiber for this calendar, we're running this as a MOQ (minimum order quantity) sale. This means if we don't meet the minimum ordered, all orders will be cancelled.
We will have 20 of these available, but the minimum to do them is 8. If we do not receive 8 orders of this calendar, it will be cancelled and refunded. We fully expect to meet this goal, but it's important we tell you up front that this is the way it will work.
2018 Fiber Advent Calendar is now available! Here's the lowdown:
Each advent calendar comes with 24 colorfully blended rolags (at least 1/2 oz each) and one 4 oz braid of colorfully dyed merino top. You'll be receiving at least a full pound of fiber overall, perfect for spinning, felting, weaving, or whatever your preferred fiber craft! Each day's fiber will be packaged individually cellophane inside a cute paper bag. The 4 oz braid will be in special wrapping paper for you to open on the 25th day of advent (whether this be Christmas, Yule, or whatever you celebrate during the winter holiday season!)
Fibers that will be included in your calendar (unless you choose an exclusion option, for common allergies): Merino, Corriedale, Cheviot, Cashmere, Silk, Alpaca, Yak, Nettles/Ramie, Rose Fiber, Milk Fiber, Angora, Soybean, and Linen. This sampler is going to be an absolute joy for you to work through!
All colorways will be NEW to this calendar & non-repeatable. That's right, 25 NEW colorways! Most of them, including the full braid, will be "non-holiday" themed, so you don't need to use them all right away, you can save them until Spring or whenever you like! There will be SIX holiday themed days throughout the month to celebrate special days for Jewish, Buddhist, Christian, Pagan, and Secular holidays of importance so that we can all celebrate with each other!
Coupons cannot be used on this item, but store credit can! PLEASE purchase this separately from other ready to ship yarns & clubs. If you purchase other ready to ship yarns with this, you won't get them until mid-November, and storing random skeins of purchased yarn until then would be a good bit more complicated that we'd like to make things.
This is not an auto renewal subscription.
Recommended washing instructions: Hand wash with cool water and wool wash. Lay flat to dry.
All Bayou City Yarn Co. yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes. I do my absolute best to rinse all yarns multiple times so that no excess dye remains in the yarn before drying. You may still notice a small amount of color bleeding the first couple of times you wash your project, despite all measures taken to prevent this.
Due to the way hand dyed yarn is made, no two skeins of the same colorway are exactly the same and different yarn bases take dye differently. If your project requires using more than one skein of the same colorway, I recommend alternating skeins.
I use a professional camera and natural or professional lighting to capture colors as accurately as possible, as well as editing software to make minor color adjustments to make sure the photo is as close as possible to the actual yarn, but due to the differences in every person's monitor, the yarn may appear slightly different.
All yarns are hand dyed in a smoke-free and pet-friendly home. Pets are not allowed near the yarn, dyeing or drying areas, or storage or packing areas. I do my absolute best to keep my inventory safe from random pet hairs, but I cannot entirely guaratee they will be.
