Yarn Therapy & the Magical Moth Midyear Solstice Calendar!

Welcome to the 2023 Midyear Solstice Calendar preorder! Preorders close at the end of February or when sold out!

This solstice calendar is going to be a bit special. It is inspired by moths — the part of the family Lepidoptera who are shamelessly in love with lightbulbs, dance in the air at night, and who are exquisitely adorned in the most glorious tones, hues and patterns. This will be a Yarn Therapy palette with complex colourways creating a cohesive fade, featuring exclusive colourways nobody has seen before! There will be speckles, variegated and tonal skeins. And they’ll play beautifully together, both as a fade, or reordered to create contrast!

As always, everything will be lovingly hand dyed in my little solar-powered dye studio in small town Aotearoa New Zealand, before making its way to your doorstep.

It will comprise:
~20x 20g mini skeins that have been carefully and lovingly handdyed by Jo.
~1x 100g skein, also lovingly handdyed by Jo, that coordinates with the minis and makes the whole collection sing!
~A handmade linen project bag — strictly exclusive to this solstice calendar
~A couple of quality surprises scattered throughout

The images here are merely to give you an idea of some of my inspiration, and some examples of previous solstice calendars for an idea of what you might expect… you’ll have to order the calendar to see what’s included this year!! The full-sized skein will coordinate with the minis and be in the same base yarn.

Each skein will come individually wrapped and numbered so you can play along and open a mini skein each day until the full-sized skein to celebrate the midyear Solstice on the 21st… or you can open them all at once, or whenever and in whatever order you like — it’s your calendar and your business!!
