Winter in the Desert

A month’s worth of beautiful, festive colorways inspired by wintertime in the Mojave Desert, sent to you in time for December and the advent of the Christmas holiday.

The Fiber for the People™ advent calendar will include 25 mini skeins of 20 grams each and one limited edition full skein of 100 grams, individually wrapped, numbered, and in colorways inspired by some of my favorite things about winter in the desert. A bundle of warm, wooly goodness and other special bits and bobs to see you cozy and cheery all the way through the month.  (Does not include a pattern.)

  • The colorways featured in this advent calendar will be dyed on either the Loft base (75% SW Merino/25% Nylon; 463 yds/100 g {93yds/20g mini}; fingering) or Tayler’s Favorite (80% SW Merino/20% Nylon; 400 yds/100 g {80yds/20g mini}; fingering).

  • Listings will close on Friday, August 31st.

  • All advent calendar sales are final.

  • All yarn will ship in one package.

  • Shipping costs are included in the price.

Hand-dyed yarn tends to vary slightly both between and within dye lots due to the nature of the dying process.  If you are planning on working up a larger project which requires more than one skein, be sure to alternate skeins every two or three rows.  This helps to hide any variation between skeins.

After each skein is dyed and cooled to room temperature, they are gently rinsed in lukewarm water to remove any excess dye and soaked in Eucalan wool soak prior to being spun and hung to dry.  The Eucalan soak is a leave-in treatment, as it were, providing a conditioning infusion of lanolin back into the fiber, as well as a gentle wash.  I take extra care of my yarn babies before they come to live with you.

Please be sure to hand-wash all of your knitted items in cool water with a gentle wash.  Superwash, smooperwash!  It's best to use your hands the old fashioned way. And if a little bit of bleeding occurs on the first wash, never fear!  It happens.
