Next week, we officially open up our 2023 Winter Solstice Kits for pre-orders. Unsure about what a Winter Solstice Kit is? Think of it as a yarn countdown calendar where each yarn is wrapped up as a surprise present to the opener! It is a limited edition, artfully handspun, creative fiber treat created to bring a little extra joy into your life or into the life of someone that you care about. What the short video below for more details.

This year I designed two different color combinations, one in bright, rainbow neons with pops of sparkle and the other in deep, rustic jewel tones with hints of sparkle but a bit more subtle. Each Winter Solstice Calendar will come with 12 handspun mini skeins that are completely unique, never-been-made before yarns. Each mini kit will be thoughtfully wrapped in vintage Indian wrapping paper and numbered so you know which yarn present to open first and so on. I'm going to be a little secretive about details but here is what I will say....


While in India last February, I worked on these yarns for DAYS (and days...!) and designed them as a gradient collection where one color flows into the next seamlessly. If you decide to knit or crochet them in order, you'll have a finished project that subtly changes color with each mini skein. Each 12 mini skein kit is comprised of 6 mini skeins in a yarn we currently run (but all new colors) and 6 mini skeins in a yarn we do not currently run (all new colors but I can say no more because it's a secret!).


Each colorway of each yarn is a never before produced yarn that will never be produced again. These are super special and available only by pre-order for one week. We have a certain capacity we can make in order to get the yarn here in time, if we hit that early then we may not leave ordering open for the entire week.


We've created mood boards to represent each colorway to give you a feeling of what magical yarn assortments each calendar may hold. Check them out at the links below! There are some clues in these mood boards but that's all I can say!

Each mini skein will be carefully wrapped up in beautiful Indian wrapping paper that I sourced on my last trip. They are vintage prints and super pretty. I recommend saving this and reusing it for your own gifting!


Pre-orders being on June 13th at 10am ET. Please let me know in the comments if you have any questions or feel free to reach out to Amy at anytime.
