Cookston Crafts Advent Calendar 24 x Hand Dyed Mini Skeins with lots of options (Pre Order) ships in Nov


Shipping to United States: $18.87

The Cookston Crafts Advent Calendar is returning!

This year the theme will be ‘Must Have Toys!’

We’ve all been there, trying desperately to get our hands on that elusive must have xmas toy. Each mini skein will represent those toys from the last 30 years, so think - Care Bears, Cabbage Patch Dolls, Tracy Island, Buzz Lightyear.....

I’m going to give a few different options.

1 - 4 ply 10g mini skeins yarn only
2 - Double Knit 10g mini skeins yarn only
3 - 4 ply 10g mini skeins with extras
4 - Double Knit 10g mini skeins with extras

If you’d like to add an additional semi solid colour of the same base then add on one of the advent pre order semi solids listed separately.

If you’ve selected extras please let me know if you have any allergies or dietary requirements.

All advents will be sent tracked and signed for and will ship at the beginning of November to ensure they arrive in time for December.

The images provided were of last year’s super successful calendar. It contained various 4ply merino nylon minis with a rainbow theme and lots of extras from small scottish producers.

All the yarn will been hand dyed by myself, Claire Bentley at Cookston Crafts in Aberdeenshire. It will be packaged in a box similar to the one pictured and will be in the skein rather than wound like last year. (Hours and hours went into those!)

24 x 10 grams
4ply - 42 metres approx per mini skein
Double Knit - 22 metres approx per mini skein
All 75% Superwash Merino / 25% Nylon

This yarn will be dyed to give a variegated effect using various colours of professional acid dye.

Yarn is washed, rinsed and line dried.

The yarn has been rinsed until the water runs clear, however some bleeding MAY occur and handwashing in a lukewarm solution with wool detergent would be recommended. Do not soak or wring. Do not tumble dry.
