The 2020 PLYarn Mini Skein Advent Calendar Pre-Order is here! These are limited edition, so order now to be sure to get one - last year they sold out early. US Shipping is Free!

Each day of December until Christmas, you will get to open a surprise mini skein of yarn (with other adorable holiday or fiber related goodies added in here and there)! Each day's gift is individually wrapped - what could be more fun for a knitter or fiber crafter?!
Again this year, you have your choice of 5 base yarns and we also have some fun optional add-ons. There is a surprise special project bag for the 2020 Advent Calendar as well as the option to add a coordinating full size skein in your chosen yarn base.

The 2020 collection will be a surprise - a beautiful flow and fade of color consisting of speckles and semi-solids which can be combined as they are unwrapped or used in a modular project or in many other ways (see the photos of the shawls above from previous years using all the skeins).
NOTE: I am including a "DK" option for the base yarn. DK is not recommended if you plan to join an Advent Knit-Along, as most of those patterns are fingering/sock weight. However, the DK option is great for all the gorgeous color-work sweaters that are so popular now.

My advent calendar is inspired by my participation for the past 3 years in the wildly popular ADVENT Knit-Along on Ravelry by Ambah O'Brien. Each year, she creates a pattern for a beautiful shawl or scarf that uses 24-25 Mini Skeins with an optional full skein. Each new yarn is opened in the morning and a few rows are knit using the yarn of the day. There is a fun (huge) social group for sharing on Ravelry and it is so much fun. Also there are lots of prizes to win! This year she is creating a new one, The ADVENT 2020 KAL, so check it out the information to join here : https://www.ravelry.com/discuss/ambah/4027644/1-25 . There are also loads of other projects specially designed for Advent and Mini Sets on Ravelry. The DK option is great for all the gorgeous color-work sweaters that are so popular now.

All yarns are hand dyed by Pancake and Lulu / PLYarn with professional, permanent and light fast acid fiber dyes. You can be confident that PLY yarn and fiber is ethically sourced and mulesing-free.
