Advent Calendar Sign-ups: Round 2!

A frosted cake decorated with a sprig of holly, with the words Earl Grey Fiber Co. Advent Calendar.

The second round of Advent Calendar signups will open this Saturday, May 25, at 10 a.m. PDT!

This year’s calendar will be a mash up of our Great British Baking Show yarn and charm club and our Afternoon Tea Collection. Think: baked goods, warm wintery colors, and tea-inspired colorways.

Each calendar will have 24 20g minis and one 100g skein of yarn, all on our Darjeeling Sock base (75/25 Superwash Merino/nylon), and will be accompanied by three patterns written just for this year’s calendar, something special from Pinecone Ceramics and a few extra goodies thrown in for good measure. You’ll have the choice of either knit, crochet, or both if you’d like so that the patterns are geared toward your fiber craft of choice!

Shop Update, Advent Calendar sign-ups, Goods for Good, and new Collection colorways!

This Saturday, April 20 at 10 a.m. PDT we’ll be having a shop update where you’ll find lots of squishy sock yarn and brand new Afternoon Tea and The Office Collection sock sets!

You’ll also find a brand new section of our website called “Goods for Good,” where you can find all of the items we create that have a designated percentage donated to various organizations. Included in that section are our latest creations, “Winter Is Coming,” a colorway created to help raise money for the Southern Poverty Law Center, and “Rainbow Unicorn Balloons,” a colorway created to help raise money for the Children’s Heart Foundation.

And last but not least, you’ll find sign-ups for this year’s Advent Calendar, which will be a delicious mashup of our Great British Bake Off yarn club and our Afternoon Tea Collection. The calendar will include lots of yarn, patterns designed just for the calendar, with a knit and a crochet option, and some incredible handmade goods created by artists just for the calendar as well!
