Star Sign Birthday Countdown Kit - mini skeins & self striping yarn

Stripey Cat Yarns

Regular price £55.00

Tax included.

I've been dyeing and packaging the advents lately & I had a brain wave.. how amazing would a birthday countdown advent be?


Begin opening 6 days before your birthday with 20g one of a kind mini skeins for 6 days & then 100g self striping yarn to open on your birthday. The colourway will be dyed inspired by your star sign..

Each mini skein will be packaged individually and the self striping will be too so it'll be a beautiful surprise 💕

Please allow sufficient time for me to dye the yarn & have it arrive with you in time for your birthday.. turnaround for custom orders is usually between  3-6 weeks.

Please add a comment at checkout with your star sign & birthday info (just the date & month) 😊 If you're ordering for a friend then please add their details.

Available to order on the following yarn bases:

100g 75% superwash merino 25% nylon (100g/400m fingering weight)

100g 75% sw bfl 25% nylon (100g/400m fingering weight)

100g 80% sw merino 20% nylon high twist (100g/365m)

100g sparkle sock 75% sw merino 20% nylon 5% silver stellina (100g/400m fingering weight)

There's an option of adding a 20g peach semi solid skein to knit contrasting heels, toes & cuffs. This will be sent to you on the same base as the main skein.

Based on gauge of 10 stitches per inch you will get 2-3 rows per stripe. I used a 2.5mm needle & knitted my sock using the 75% sw merino/25% nylon base.

The yarn is hand dyed in small batches with professional dyes in a smoke-free environment. 

All yarns are sent out in a skein/hank. 

Though this yarn is washable, I recommend hand-washing your finished object with a wool wash such as euculan. Minimal colour bleeding may occur during the first few washes, so please wash apart from other items.
