The time has come for me to offer my Fifth Annual Spinner's Advent Calendar!
This calendar will consist of 24 small morsels of fiber, all hand dyed by myself and pulled from braids of combed top or roving. They will be mixed in breed content, but will be mostly wool, with nylon, silk, or other common accents, both superwash and non-superwash. The amount will not be weighed, but will be approximately the amount that I use in my fiber morsels - 10-20 grams per piece. and enough to spin each day and ply into a mini skein. Breeds will not be labeled this year, sorry!
This calendar will not be color coordinated!
There will be no extras with this calendar.
This calendar will also come with the option of receiving a full braid for an extra cost.
PLEASE PURCHASE SEPARATELY FROM OTHER ITEMS! Thank you!
THE COLORS WILL NOT NECESSARILY BE CHRISTMAS/HOLIDAY THEMED!! There's only so much I can do with red and green.
Each day's fiber will come packaged so that it's a surprise to open, you will not be able to see what's inside (unless you peek).
Some ideas for spinning/projects:
- Spin mini skeins and start a handspun scrap blanket.
- Make a "frankenskein" by traditionally spinning and plying the singles however you want.
- Blend the fibers together on a blending board, carders, or drum carder. Keep in mind this may muddy the colors, so keep like color families together.
- Spin minis to give to your non-spinner knitting friends - maybe they'll convert.
This listing will mail at the beginning of November. If you purchase and have any questions between now and then, feel free to ask! I will update with precise shipping times closer to the date on my Instagram account or through Etsy message.
If you are allergic to ANY fiber, please let me know so that I can replace the offensive fiber for you!
