Once again this year, I have made Twelve Days of Christmas mini-skein sets.
These make a fabulous gift for the yarn-lovers in your life, and they are also a great way to step away from the busyness of the wonderful Christmas season and enjoy a little time to crochet, knit, or weave for yourself.
How It Works
Each day starting with Christmas Day, you or the person you give it to will get to unwrap a beautiful little box containing a hand-dyed 20 gram mini skein. The boxes will be numbered for each of the twelve days of Christmas.
What Is Included
Each 20 gram mini skein is 80 yards long, and I dyed them in a gradient that goes from barely-there speckles all the way to solid in a gradual multi-colored gradient. These will NOT be Christmas-colored just because I want you or the person you give the set to to be able to use the finished object all year long.
The minis are made of a lovely soft 2-ply yarn base made of 80% superwash merino and 20% nylon, so they are great for everything from head to foot.
The total quantity of yarn is 960 yards, and I'll be including a list with some great pattern ideas for knitting and crochet. That is enough for a medium-sized shawl, poncho, or cropped sweater.
Please note that these colorways are the same as the ones I used for this year's Advent Calendars.
If you would like to make it even more special or you would like to use these for a larger project, you can choose to add a full-sized skein in any of my sock-weight yarn bases. That would make it so you can start with the full-sized skein on Christmas Day and open the last mini skein on the Feast of Epiphany.
While any of the sock-weight bases will work nicely with the Twelve Days of Christmas minis, I would especially recommend So Silky Sock in any of the following colorways:Alpaca Lace Cloud in any of the rose, blue, or purple colorways.
If you will be giving this as a gift, please let me know so I don't include the packing slip. Also, feel free to include a note in the "Notes to Seller" section, and I'll include your note with the set.
All the yarn is already dyed and just has to be packaged up. Please allow one week from your order date for me to do that.
My Gift to You
I will also be including a special handmade gift that should be of use to anyone who knits or crochets.
Caking Your Yarn
Due to time constraints, I'm afraid I will not be able to wind these into yarn cakes for you.
