About the knitting project
It's of course all very hush-hush, as we cannot tell you exactly what the Fair Isle project looks like. But what we can tell you is:  

  • The project can be knitted by all knitters, who are experienced with or want to try Fair Isle knitting. 
  • You knit from a diagram and everything is carefully explained
  • If you knit around 1 hour a day most days we estimate that an intermediate knitter can finish the project before Christmas
  • You'll be knitting with Önling No 20 Shetland Wool
  • You can choose from 12 colour kits and please be aware that there limited amounts of kits in each colot
  • Please make sure you have circular knitting needles US size 2,5 / 3 mm (16 or 32" // 40 or 80 cm) ready. Needles are not included. 

About the gifts
Yet again, Katrine Hannibal has made a great effort to design and choose a handful of really nice gifts for the Advent calendar. They are handpicked for knitters and we believe they will bring joy and spread coziness throughout december. 

Some gifts are specially produced for the Advent calendar and will not be released until 2023.  

Colours: 12 beautiful Danish yarn kits with yarn from Scotland
The project is knitted in Önling no 20 100% Shetland Wool. You get a nice, warm scarf designed for wearing outdoors. 

12 beautiful yarn kits have been curated with inspiration from Danish towns and landscapes. You'll find the moors in Jutland in #4 Viborg, the apple orchards of Fyn in #5 Bogense and the characteristic colours of historical, Danish buildings in #9 Ribe and #10 Svaneke.

The pictures of yarn swatches are inspiration that give you a clear indication of the colour scheme. The shown yarn balls are main colours. The pictures don't show what the project actually looks like - they are intended as inspiration for your colour choice. 

Please be aware that there are limited amounts of each color combination...  

We have to keep some secrets, right? The final measurements of the scarf is a surprise but we can tell you it's a one-size medium-sized project designed for outdoor use.

Presentation of knitwear designer Ruth Soerensen
Fair Isle stems from the Shetland islands and is famous for the colour knitting technique. Ruth Soerensen designs knitwear within the fair Isle tradition, which means it's not just 'stranded knitting', but also with a strong consideration of colour combinations, symbols and a certain variation throughout the pattern.

Washing instructions for your knitwear
Wool can last for years, but it requires good care. Washing is tough on your woolen garments and in general wool needs to be washed much less than other materials as it has a self-cleaning effect. Often it is enough to hang your woolen sweater / garment outside in the humid weather or bring it with you into the bathroom, when you take a long, hot shower - the steam will often be enough to freshen it up it and remove any unwanted odors.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Everyday Kit
Neither Önling No 12 nor No 13, is pre-washed when you receive it on cones. You get the best result if you soak your finished knitted garment in lukewarm water for approx. 2 hours. Then wash the garment as you would otherwise with washing detergent for wool, either by hand or on a wool program in your washing machine. Dry it by laying it flat.

Specifically for knitwear knitted in Önling's Silk kit
As the Silk Kit from Önling contains 3 different qualities (linen, wool and silk), we recommend that you always wash your silk sweater / garment by hand, to avoid it changing shape or appearance during wash. The three qualities will react differently to water, temperatures, etc. Önling can not take responsibility for the result if you wash your silk sweater in the washing machine. Your garment made from the silk kit should NOT be spun or tumble dried. Instead, dry it by laying it flat.
