I'm offering my second Pre Order Advent Yarn Club ... Bigger and a bit better than last year!
It should be a lot of fun!
Since I had my trip to Alaska cancelled I'm basing it around my local landscape - there's a lot of beautiful things to see here in Australia. I hope the story board gives you a little feel of what's in store... softer and more subtle than last years, with a gentle flow of colours taking you from the Reef to the Bush. I even have an optional new sock yarn called Bush to celebrate!
I will aim to ship the skeins in one shipment early October to give you a chance to select a pattern and get yourself organised. Earlier this year to allow the postage time to reach you.
There are a number of patterns you could use - Ambah O'Brian (on Ravelry) has quite a few beautiful patterns suitable for an advent knits. I'll be letting you know of any more I find along the way.
I'm offering the club in three different yarns. All will be wound into 20gms skeins by Green Tea Yarns (these are not purchased in 20gm skeins)! For this reason places are strictly limited to 5 places per base.
White Cloud: - Non superwash and delicously soft and beautiful. One of my premium yarns. See Base Information page for more information about this gorgeous yarn
Darjeeling: My best selling sock yarn. Soft and durable too.
Billy 4- an all 4 ply Australian merino - super soft and plump feeling. It runs a bit on the thin side for a 4 ply but would be perfect for a wrap or light weight blanket. Non Superwash and no nylon either.
Slightly fussy to dye but everything everyone who used it last year turned out absolutely stunningly.
There is one lot of postage to be paid on each shipment. The packages end up being heavy and quite big.
Depending on numbers and people participating I will set up a group of us on Messenger. It will be called "Green Tea Yarns Advent 2020". It is not essential you join but makes it easier for me (and you) to communicate any information that there may be about the yarn, progress, games, etc. Please feel free to remove yourself from the group if it's not what you want.
From Reef to Bush - Advent Kit 2020
Billy 4 is an all Australian Merino yarn - 4 plies and very soft just as merino can be. It's non superwash and has no processing other than it's scouring and spinning which is done in New Zealand.
