Mini Skeins / 400 Yards / Hand Dyed Christmas MYSTERY Mini Skeins Alluree Fingering MCN Weight

$37.00
- +

Mini skeins in mystery colors, hand dyed and hand selected for the holidays, based on much loved Christmas movies.

These minis are just 80 (or so) yards per skein, hand dyed in select Phydeaux colourways. You choose the collection, inspired by three Christmas standard, from very vintage to much newer:  A Charlie Brown Christmas, Polar Express, and It's A Wonderful Life.

I choose the colors, based on the movie collection(s) you choose.  Here are some possibilities (but don't count on your actual collection matching these exactly):

A Charlie Brown Christmas:  saturated 60's color, from the few needles on the saddest Christmas tree in the world to Snoopy's first prize light display, to the iconic colors worn - or carried - by the Peanuts gang.

Polar Express:  midnight blues, ice and snow, glowing lights: all the classic colors of a Christmas Eve night.  Think gold, brass, navy, the tallest Christmas tree ever, and twinkly lights everywhere.  

It's A Wonderful Life:  So much to love and inspire here, despite its black and white film!  Clarence's wings, "and dance by the light of the moon," ringing Christmas tree bells, Mary hiding in the bushes sans robe, too many moments to count!  I can't see dyeing this set without tears - I have yet to make it through this wonderful film with a full on cry fest.

Colourways, again, will be mysteries, but will include brand new color and one of a kind / unrepeatable colors. 

Your set(s) will also include a pattern (PDF digital download) suitable for one set of fingering weight mini skeins (shawl or infinity scarf), retail value $6.  AND a special Christmas/holiday surprise, retail value $10-15.

Alluree fingering weight base yarn 

▶ Three-ply fingering weight
▶ 80 yds (73 m) each skein, 400 yds (365 m) total
▶ 75% superwash merino wool, 15% cashmere, 10% nylon
▶ Hand wash cool/cold water, dry flat strongly recommended

 

I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. I take great care to dye yarn that is variegated throughout: no big pools or stripes of color. I also reskein all of my yarn after dyeing to ensure no tangles or knots.

Very soft and fluffy - perfect to wear next to your skin. Not itchy at all!

Preorder:  will ship end of November into early December 2017.
