Jane Eyre - 2023 Advent Calendar
INTERNATIONAL ORDERS - We cannot guarantee that Advents ordered after Nov 1st will arrive in time for Dec 1st. Please note that by ordering after this date, you are accepting this.
This advent season I invite you to share with us the simple joys of a classic tale as we explore together the story of Jane Eyre, journeying across the Yorkshire Moors to meet her at the beautiful, gothic Thornfield Hall. Expect heathered moolands colours with muted putples, stormy greys and gentle greens.
Our six moodboards will help you to discover the colour families we'll be passing through, in order. Each one represents approximately 4 of our 24 minis and one of our 6 stitch markers, though the colours will fade seamlessly from one moodboard to the next. The advent as a whole will tend towards the midtones, with a few paler and richer colours popping in along the way.
We begin the advent season in the heathered Yorkshire moors, with gentle purples, skewing first to the rich burgundies before cooling off into indigo greys. Imagine fields of heather, and purple-toned stormy skies. Next we'll be leaning a little more into the gothic Victorian, as we meld from our indigos into muted navy blues before moving into greens. We could hardly visit Jane's Yorkshire without it! We'll pass through some lovely blue-toned greens, before heading into the more golden hues of the endless grasses. Inspired by Jane's love for reading and those washed out neutrals of the moorland, we'll next be visiting golden neutrals and stonewashed hues, which will seamlessly fade into muted pinks, and subtle peaches, again these will be toned down, with plenty of pretty speckles. Finally, we reach warm greys. This colour colour reminds me of everything Jane: her plain dresses; the weathered stone walls at both Lowood School and Northfield; the stormy Yorkshire skies, and her beautiful charcoal sketches. Expect these last few colourways to be beautifully subtle, with gentle variation and soft speckles.
Add on a 100g Christmas Day skein and you'll get a variagated colourway that summarises the advent as a whole, so expect lilacs and stone, with hints of the other colours. Day 25 is always designed to match perfectly with the Christmas Eve mini so as to form a perfect Christmas sock cast on!
We'll also be reading the classic novel (which is in the public domain and therefore free online) along the way, with a chapter a day, starting Friday November 17th, and finishing on Christmas Eve. Why not find an audiobook version to listen to whilst you yarncraft with your beautiful Jane Eyre yarn? I'll also be putting lots of pattern suggestions for knit and crochet on my Instagram along the way.
Advent Calendar includes:
- 24 mini skeins individually wrapped and numbered to form a fade.
- Your choice of Luxe Sock or Luxe DK (with nylon) in 20g minis
- Option to upgrade to a Luxe Sock 50g calendar so as to get plenty of yardage for larger projects
- Option to add on a 100g skein extra for Christmas Day and/or exclusive project bag, handmade by Cyndra Arts.
- Lovely extras, including 6 of my handmade polymer clay stitch markers, to match the theme.
- Pattern suggestions and a Jane Eyre read along (starting 17th Nov!)
- Commemorative presentation box and themed packaging.
- Please note that this is a preorder, and all advents will ship in October 2023, therefore please don't order anything else at the same time, otherwise you'll be waiting for it for a while!
- If you are ordering multiple advents, unfortunately due to their weight, you will need to pay postage for each one individually, therefore we recommend you place separate orders for multiple calendars, or we can invoice the extra postage afterwards.

Pay in Instalments Info (READ ME!)
I know advents are a big outlay so I have set up options for you to pay in instalments and spread out the cost by using our subscription options. The system will automatically charge you the same amount as your initial payment on the same date of the month until the full balance is paid. This will be done using the same payment details that you entered when you placed your order, so please make sure this is suitable for that purpose.
To ensure that all payments are complete before advents ship, the 6 month payment plan option with close on April 30th, and 3 month payment plan on 30th June.
Please note that, because my system would automatically charge you postage every single month for this, (and nobody wants or needs to pay 6 lots of postage!) you will need to use the code ‘POSTAGEINVOICE’ to negate this. I will then invoice you separately, via email, for the correct postage amount for your region. (£8 UK, £28 international) so please double check your email inputted is correct. Please note that advents cannot ship until all payments are made in full, including postage, so this code is only for pay-in-instalments use.
Terms and Conditions: All payments are considered non-refundable deposits as this is a custom order item, subject to a 14 day cooling off period, as this money is immediately used to buy materials for your advent. This does not affect your statutory consumer rights.
