RockPool - 2021 Yarn Advent / Countdown Calendar on Choufunga Sock
Please read the description and choose your options carefully. Due to their bespoke nature, all countdown set purchases are final.
Shipping will include tracking and you will receive a notification once your countdown set is on its way.
This year’s Countdown/Advent set is inspired by rock pools. From colourful anemones, urchins and starfish to a gorgeous array of wracks and kelps, this new set of colourways is sure to delight. The set will be a complimentary mix of twenty five new colourways. Speckled and variegated, the set will be wrapped in an order that is suitable for creating a beautiful piece of work using each day as it comes, or feel free to grab random days from the set for your own unique order.
Although the set is ideal for use as an Advent, it is definitely not just for Christmas, as the colourways, wrapping and add-ons are not holiday themed, making the set a perfect countdown calendar that can be used as a special yarny treat to enhance any occasion throughout the year.
All options will include 25 individually wrapped and numbered mini skeins all on Choufunga, a 75/25 superwash merino and nylon sock weight base. Sets are available in different mini skein size options to suit.
Option 1 – Yarn Only - 25 x 5g (23 yards / 21 meters ea.)
Option 2 - Yarn Only - 25 x 10g (46 yards / 42 meters ea.)
Option 3 – Yarn Only - 25 x 20g (93 yards / 85 meters ea.)

Stitch markers are made with a silver coloured metal alloy charms and come on 14mm lobster clasps, which can be clipped on to your work wherever needed or will comfortably slide on to knitting needles 4mm/Size 6 (US) or smaller.
All wool is hand dyed in single or small batches then washed and dried ready to be knit up into your own unique creation.
Suitable for machine washing but hand washing is preferable. Dry flat.
Due to the nature of hand dyeing, colour saturation and placement may vary between different skeins of the same colourway. If you are using more than one to skein to complete your project I recommend alternating between the skeins for the best overall colour matching.
Ever had a wash load turn pink because of one tiny red sock? Although all wool has been washed thoroughly after dyeing, it is advisable to wash your creations separately the first time, in case any residual dye remains. The vibrancy of your wool will not be affected in the rare event that there is any run off. I don't expect the dyes to run, but I make mention out of caution as I would hate for my wool to be the 'red sock'!
