Contrast for Sherlock Holmes Advent Kit

  • $28.00

Please note that this listing MUST be purchased separately from all other listings so that shipping calculates properly. Any combined purchases will be cancelled. If you have ordered a Sherlock advent kit I will do my best to ship your contrast skein WITH your advent kit, but sometimes I miss multiple orders in the advent kit shipping frenzy, so there is a chance your contrast skeins will ship separate from your advent kit.

This is the suggested contrast for my advent kit inspired by the Sherlock Holmes novels of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; depending on the pattern you choose for your advent kit you may or may not need a contrast color...


The suggested contrast color for my Sherlock advent kit is LONDON FOG. This color will compliment and contrast with the 25 colors in this set.
