Dye House Yarns

2020 Yarn Advent Calendar




This year’s Advent Calendar is all about choosing your favourite favourites! 12 or 24 mini skeins (20g each), in the colourway that you like best, on your preferred yarn base. Added to this I have selected some of my favourite things, specially curated from amazing local artists and creatives, Uzwelo Bags, Amy Ayanda, Polynesia_za, A Little Twisted and Skoon Skincare. Extra special pieces to brighten up your festive season.

Orders open until 10 September 2020 only.


Colour Options:

Silent Night: Muted natural tones fading into earthy neutrals,

JIngle Bells: Bright sugar pops, summer days and a kaleidoscope of colour.

4 ply – fingering weight 100% Superwash Merino (approx 80m/20g)

Add a full sized skein:

Due to customer demand I have included the option to add a co-ordinating full sized skein in the same yarn base as your mini’s to open up more project options for using the set.


Instalment Payments:

2020 has been a bit of a kicker year for us all. In light of this I am offering the opinion of reserving your Advent Calendar by paying a 50% deposit upfront. I will then invoice you for two separate 25% payments at the end of the following 2 months. All payments are non-refundable and must be completed in full prior to posting. Due to high bank fees when converting foreign currency, this option is only available to customers paying from a South African bank account.



Parcels will ship early October for international customers, and mid-November for local customers.

Shipping and insurance is included for South African Residents, please select the 2020 Yarn Advent Calendar option at checkout to receive free shipping. The Courier Guy will be delivering your parcel.

International shipping costs will be displayed once your address is completed in the relevant section. International orders will be shipped via EMS Postal Services, delivery 7-10 business days and also includes insurance, It excludes any duties or customs fee payable at your country of origin.

Please do not include other shop items on the same order as they will not fit in the packaging with the Advent Calendar, the box is full up! If you are an international customer and would like to include other items, or ship more than one Advent Calendar in a parcel, please email me first at and let me know all that you are wanting to include and I will get a quote on a larger box for you.


Advent Calendars are not refundable nor returnable.
