This is our very first Advent Calendar, we’ve been eager to make one since we started our own yarn production, for many reasons, from celebrating childhood memories to making a very special color collection inspired by winter and Christmastime… but truly in this so troubled and scary year we wanted even more to celebrate and share some sheer joy, and this seems quite the perfect treasure to make and to give.
We’ve had tons of ideas to theme this special event, but at last we thought that yarn had to be the focus, our hand-dyed colors had to tell our story, and a few treats had to be the fun and extra delight. So we worked on a bundle of hand-dyed shades to cheer up winter days, and bless both the snowy skies and cozy fireplaces; we got inspired by the atmosphere of simple bliss and intimate happiness that we feel gathering with our loved ones, just for the sake of staying together and enjoying the moment.
We chose to use A Chic Blend for the yarn base, which is our most iconic perhaps, fluffy and warm on one side, and carrying a quite good yardage to be used in plenty of patterns requiring color playing.
For the treats included, we worked again with the talented Carla of @laboratorioindie to make the cutest stitch markers we’ve ever handled, all molded and engraved by hand, in shiny metal, inspired by the mood that will accompany this whole bundle.
