Mini Skeins / 400 Yards / Hand Dyed Christmas Movie MYSTERY Mini Skeins Down Fingering or DK Weight

$40.00

Sorry, this product is sold out!

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 for the fingering weight minis, or 46 yards per skein for the DK weight minis, hand dyed in select Phydeaux colourways.  You choose the collection:  A Christmas Carol, Elf, and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.

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):

A Christmas Carol:  color inspired by Victorian England and Dickens' classic tale (and the many movies also inspired by Dickens). Brass door knockers. Mistletoe and holly from the Ghost of Christmas Past. Family, love and lilttle Tim from the Ghost of Christmas Present. Dark, sooty, cobwebby bleakness from the Ghost of Christmas Future. Bells ringing and the largest goose in the corner shop for Scrooge's second chance at Christmas ... and life.

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer:  There is only ONE Rudolph for me each Christmas:  Rankin and Bass' classic stop motion animated tale with Rudolph, Hermey the Elf, Yukon Cornelius and his team of "huskies," Bumbles who bounce, The Isle of Misfit Toys, Sam the Snowman.  Saturated Christmas colors, snow, fog, silver and gold, this will be the collection of "classic" and slightly vintage Christmas colors

Elf:  Modern Christmas magic!  It's hard to imagine Christmas baking, tree decorating, gift wrapping, etc. without watching Buddy the Elf's adventures in New York.  Think sugar (and maple syrup and gum and sugar and candy and more sugar), Santa Land at Gimbel's, Santa's turbo charged sleigh, singing with Jovie, tinsel and snowflakes and Christmas lights and Buddy's green elf outfit and ... if you love Elf, also, you know what I'm talking about.  :)

Colourways 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 or two sets of DK weight mini skeins (shawl or infinity scarf), retail value $6-8.  AND a special Christmas/holiday surprise, retail value $20-30.

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!

The first run sold out, but due to popular demand, I'll dye another run, which will ship during December 10th-21st.
