Our fifth and final round of pre-orders for our 2023 Wild Advent Collection will begin on Thursday May 9th at 10:00 am MT and remain open until Saturday May 11th at 10:00 am MT. This is a 5 week pre-order, orders will begin to ship out on June 13th 2024. 

This pre-order is only available in 100g skeins. The mini skeins in this collection are exclusive to the advent calendar and will not be available for purchase as a full 24 skein collection again. The pictures in this listing show the colorways from our advent calendar on mini skeins for color reference only. In this listing you are purchasing full 100g skeins of each color. No mini skeins are included. 

A note about recreating Advent colorways:

The same techniques and formulas will be applied to our full skeins during the dyeing process as were originally applied to the mini skeins in our 2023 Wild Advent Calendar. However, the full skeins will not be identical to the mini skeins. While a batch of 20 mini skeins and a batch of 4 full skeins both equal 400 g, the mini skeins overlap one another a lot more in the pan creating a unique distribution of color, not all minis get the same treatment within each batch. Each mini takes on its own unique look based on its position in the pan. When dyeing full skeins, each skein is much larger and has more surface area to absorb the many different colors used in the formula. The colors used will typically be distibuted more evenly on all 4 skeins creating a slightly different look than the minis using the same formulas and techniques. The full skein colorways always turn out beautifully and very similar to the mini skeins, but don't expect them to be exactly the same. 

In the full Advent colorway collection photo, Day 1 begins on the top row to the right and moves to the left to Day 12. The bottom row begins with Day 13 on the left ending with Day 24 on the bottom right.

All 24 colorways pictured are not sold together, January’s fade only includes of Day 1-5, February includes Day 6-10, March includes Day 11-15, April includes Day 16-20 and May includes Day 21-24. Day 25, Phantom of the North will be available for pre-order each month as well.
