The worlds first embroidery yarn advent calendar offering you the chance to pick your favourite choice of thread from silk, wool and cotton, is back for its 5th year! Behind each door you will find a beautiful spool of thread just waiting for your next project to start.
Our packaging is made from sustainably sourced materials, its fully recyclable, Eco-friendly and made in the UK.
How it works:
Pick which type of embroidery thread you would like to be included in your advent calendar from the choices in the drop down list, either your favourite thread or perhaps a new thread you haven't tried before:

Fast delivery, packing was beautiful but my daughter found the Stars a bit too much with her cotton set.. 😅.
My silk thread selection from day 1-5 so far has been absolutely beautiful selection. I hv been using some of my selection already into my work. The thread is beautiful no fault in them , all I can say it is a delight to work with them as they are so smooth to work with.
