7 Best Yarn Advent Calendars 2022

Yarn advent calendars are full of fabulous surprises!

Whether you’re looking for a crochet advent calendar or you’re a knitter looking for a treat, in this collection I’ve found a variety of advents that I think you will love.

Be aware that the best yarn advent calendars get snapped up quickly! There’s usually new ones being listed up until late September/early October. You still have time to get saving for your Christmas countdown treat.

I’m so excited to have found yarn advent calendars are a thing! 

Last year I was treated to the Macmillan Beauty Advent which was great but I wanted something a little different going forward and stumbled across yarn advent calendars.

A yarn advent calendar usually has lots of goodies. In this collection, you’ll find luxurious hand dyed yarn (eco friendly).

These are often fibres we wouldn’t usually get to work with so a real treat for the crafter! You might find stitch markers and often a treat or two as well.

Out of necessity (because obviously opening the advent calendar is a surprise) images from the independent sellers are ‘holding’ images and not of the products.

I would recommend you read through the reviews to check whether a seller is what you are looking for.

Wondering what you’ll make with the yarn? Some advents will have mini skeins that match and include a pattern for a finished project. Others have colour schemes that match but leave it to you for how you’ll use the yarn.

I have a collection of crochet Christmas ideas that might help too.

If you’re addicted to yarn (like me!) or know someone who loves fibres and colours, I think a yarn advent calendar would be perfect!

We’re all in need of a surprise to make us smile and lift our spirits.  This might be just the added sparkle we need!
