2018 Advent Calendar is now available! Here's the lowdown:
Each advent calendar comes with 24 mini skeins and 1 full skein. They'll be packaged individually in little kraft paper boxes for the mini skeins and the full skein 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!)
There are several calendar options to choose from, including 10 and 20 gram mini skein options; our 2ply high twist merino/nylon Squish Sock, our sparkley merino/nylon/lurex Jazz Sock, and soft and squishy MCN Soft Kitty DK! Just check the list once or twice and choose which one will be the most fun for you!
All colorways will be NEW to this calendar. That's right, 25 NEW colorways! Most of them, including the full skein, 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 mini skeins 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!
Stitch them into your favorite scrap blanket, make a beautiful memory shawl, some scrappy socks, or whatever your heart desires! Not all of the colorways will be released into the shop, but some might be released as shop colorways beginning January 1, 2019. Some (I imagine around 40% of them) will maintain exclusivity to this box and will not be repeated. The full size skein will be exclusive to this box.
Coupons cannot be used on this item, but store credit can! PLEASE purchase this separately from other ready to ship yarns. 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.
