Kwanzaa begins Monday, December 26, 2022 and runs through Sunday, January 1, 2023. The Fourth Annual Kwanzaa Box is now available for sale! I can’t wait for you to see what this box contains!
In 2023, my emphasis in dyeing, as well as box offerings, is going to be sweaters, large wraps and large shawls; very cohesive offerings that blend well together or separately. In that vein, I am starting this journey with my 4th Annual Kwanzaa Box. As always, this box contains a minimum of 7 skeins of yarn and clocks in at a minimum of 3,000 yards. The colorways contained in the box can be used to create a “fade” project or to use individually or collectively in any other project you so desire. Yarn weight will be a combination of fingering and DK, with enough of both bases to create a fade project should you so desire. Fiber content will be blends. All the fingering weight yarn will be one blend and all the DK yarn in the box will be one blend. The blends will not be your typical sock blends, but something scrumptious. You can certainly use the fingering for socks, if you want, but those will be some luxurious socks!!
This year, I’m also including a really nice baseball T-shirt in the box. I have found a fantastic BIPOC Maker that lives right here in the DFW Metroplex who designs the cutest T-shirts. Her t-shirts are extremely high quality. She is designing some Kwanzaa/fiber arts T-shirts to be included in this box. So please, make sure that you choose the size T-shirt you would like. These T-shirts run true to size. The sleeve color may vary from the black and white image attached to the size descriptions.
Each skein of yarn is individually wrapped and one skein is to be opened each day of Kwanzaa. Keeping in the spirit of Kwanzaa, each box contains a special gift from me to you!
To sum it up, each box contains:
- A minimum of 7 skeins of yarn, a minimum of 3,000 yards
- A project bag to hold your yarn
- A knitting pattern
- A crochet pattern
- Your choice to include a T-shirt
This box ships during the week of the 15th of December to arrive in time to begin opening on December 26.
And BTW, if you are purchasing as a gift for your fiber friends or for a significant other, you can utilize our gift wrapping services! We will gift wrap your box, include a nice card stating who is the gift is from and include a packing slip (without the price, of course)! The tracking information will go to the purchaser.
