Hats and Mittens Fair Isle Advent Calendar is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 103.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ageless I bought this advent calendar several years ago and it has become a tradition. My eight year old son still gets excited when he sees me hanging this along our staircase banister every December 1st. Friends and family always comment on how cute it is and several have bought one of their own. If you don't have kids you could fill it with little notes to your hubby!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Lovely & Sweet! I have been eyeing this advent calendar for the last two Christmas seasons, by the time I decided to order it last year it was out of stock. I ordered it this year as soon as it became available! It is so lovely, soft handmade wool mittens and hats just the right size to stuff with little sweets and small gifts. I was concerned about the color mentioned by other reviewers, but the colors are the same as shown in the catalog, very "natural dye" looking. I would equate it to a carpet made of natural fibers using natural dyes as opposed to synthetic fibers and dyes. I am thrilled with it! I can hardly wait to surprise my little ones on December 1st. They will be delighted as they count down the days! Don't miss out like I did last year, order it already! You'll be so glad you did.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Way Too Cute! I ordered this and absolutely loved it when it arrived. It is even more adorable in person and is very well made. We hung it up in the hallway and my two year old loved to get up each morning to find a little treat in one of the mittens or hats.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great over the Bed Garland I enjoy decorating my bedroom for the holidays, with the red dot flannel sheets and comforter on the bed. When I added this as a garland hung over the bed, the room looked so cheerful and inviting!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favs! My sisters and I had all eyed this for some time and when it became available for the holiday presale I jumped on it. It's a great holiday decoration, unique, warm, fun, etc.. Like some of the other reviews, I would agree that the colors a bit different scheme than what appears in the picture (a bit deeper), but great nonetheless. Do purchase, you will have it for years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have been eyeing this in the catalog for two years and finally indulged myself this year. I wish I had done it earlier! I love the way this string of mittens looks hanging from my fireplace mantle. It is so charming and sweet and is by far one of the best holiday decorations I own. I got compliments on it the entire time it was displayed and can't wait for next December!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dual Purpose Unlike many advent calendars that take up space and don't fit the decor... this adorable and beautifully made advent calendar adds to the decor and gives the kids a treat to look forward to every day! Simply precious!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the wait! I was lucky enough to order this item when it was featured as the Sale of the Day and couldn't be more pleased with it. The colors are a bit muted, but it blends perfectly with my decor and makes such a cheery addition to our mantle. I'm looking forward to making this a tradition at our house and can't wait to start stuffing the mittens with little treats during next year's holiday season!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Love It! I had my eye on this advent calendar for two years before I bought it, and I'm so glad I finally did. Granted the colors aren't nearly as bright as the were in the catalog, but I still love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Advent Calendar I just love this advent calendar! Adressing the color concerns mentioned in the other reviews, my advent is exactly the same as the one photographed here. The colors are teal (not royal blue), mustard, brick red, cream, dusty pink and green. The colors are very "earthy" and not your typical primary colors. I love them and they fit in well with my decor. It is a great size & stretches the entire length of my mantel. The mittens and "hats" are a great size to tuck things (not too small that you can only do candy!). To give you an idea of size, the mittens would actually fit a toddler! Beautiful, it is hand-made and it looks it. It does not appear mass produced. It truly is a family heirloom that I am glad I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the holidays You will be pleased with the quaility of this product. Not only is it adorable, but it is usable for stuffing the mittens with treats, gift cards, and small toys for your children or husband/ wife. :^)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice quality I tried ordering this item last year, but they ran out. The hats and mittens are bigger than I expected. The colors are not as pictured in the catalog and online. However, they are still beautiful, just more muted. This advent calendar is a treasure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My sons love it Last year my sons found this hanging in between two windows overnight, filled with tiny presents and messages and they were so excited that they designed the family Christmas card around the hats and mittens, holding the two ends and dancing with it in the garden. They already started to mention it wondering what will it contain this year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Heirloom We bought this advent calendar 2 years ago for our grandson. He was a baby and last year it was hard finding toddler safe items that fit in the hats and mittens. This year he's 2 1/2 and I have already started finding items. Much easier this year! The quality is such that he'll have it as an heirloom to pass on to his children. It looks great draped across our mantle. We're lucky to have him close enough that he can visit each day to get a treat.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from even nicer in person I bought this last year because they were all out of the advent elf I wanted. This turned out to be better. It was adorable hung on my fireplace, and really nicely made. The colors are beautiful and varied enough to go with most decors. We love it. Skip the old fashioned candy, though. Sold by the box last year, it was stale.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is adorable! I can't wait until the holidays when I can display it! I'm shopping around looking for little goodies to put in the hats & mittens. It's just adorable-I keep taking it out and looking at it, holding it up, wandering around deciding where I'm going to put it, etc. It will be enjoyed for many years and handed down to the next generation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must Have Advent Calendar Wonderful decoration, cherished item, lots of fun, easily refillable w/ candy or kid's mini erasers, etc. Colorful, cute, pretty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Advent Calendar This is absolutely a holiday keepsake. I have always admired knit handcrafts and that is what this is. The opening of the hats and mittens are generous enough to get a small jewelry sized box inside. I think the picture in the Winter Wishes catalog page 6 & 7 does it justice. You really get a sense of how substantive it is. This is a holiday heirloom that you will look forward to using year after year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well made, not quite as I imagined. I’d been looking at this Advent garland since last year. It had great reviews. I find it it a bit disappointing. Colors are not very bright and mitten openings are small. If I hang it high, my grandkids can’t reach and it’s length makes hanging low awkward. It is pretty! I’ll try to find a better way to hang it next year!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but too long This is very well made and super cute. But it's very long. I did not have any place to hang it. Sadly I had to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Such a unique piece! After watching this item sell out 2 or 3 years in a row, this year I made sure to order early. I love it’s whimsy, chunky appeal. The red is a bit more of an orange red than I expected, but beautiful quality. It would t are forever to make one of my own. Buy it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute Very cute idea, but the mittens are larger than I was expecting. Pay attention to the dimensions- assuming they are listed.
Date published: 2017-12-04
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for my Grandchild! Item was beautifully made. the size is great because it can hold good sized items. It is decorative and can stay up during holidays even when emptied. It was a little costly, but worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Advent Mittens This item is just adorable. I would have given it 5 stars but I think the pricie is a little high.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful This item is adorable - I do agree that the colors are more muted then they appear online but this is a keeper and will be a very welcome addition to our family holiday tradition. I liked it so much I bought another one for my sister.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not exactly what I had hoped As noted in other reviews, the colors of the mittens were not what I had hoped. The red is especially muted. The mittens and hats are also smaller than I had expected. I kept the garland because the quality is good, I especially like the fair isle pattern.
Date published: 2012-11-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pointy Mittens I returned the Hat and Mitten Advent Calendar because the hands of the mittens are knitted into a point. I did not care for the looks of it. The quality was fine, however.

Same question- are they decorated AND numbered on both sides? Love the garland, but do t want it as an advent calendar. I'd like to keep it up through part of the winter. 

Asked by: nicbrown
They are numbered and decorated on the front side only.

Hello, are the mittens numbered and decorated on both sides?

Asked by: Happy Clergy
Each hat or mitten is hand-embroidered with numbers from 1 to 24.

want to send this to my daughter studying abroad. Will hats/mittens hang straight if I fill in advance & send to her? (will they tilt/spill?)

Am just trying to figure out how realistic it is to make this a special treat as the semester drags on for her far away from home. they look wonderful & have great reviews, but no one talks about any tricks to actually keeping giftees in the little hats and mittens--maybe only lightweight things work? something else? I was going to send with command hooks, as she can't use nails or tape. does that sound sensible/effective? thanks v much!
Asked by: Meemola
We would recommend lightweight items to stuff the hats and mittens. The hats/mittens may not hang straight depending on what is in them. It sounds like a great idea to add a little festivity to her dorm room.

Are the dimensions accurate? Are they really 7" high? all of them? that seems really big!

Asked by: Meemola
Each one is unique & crafted by hand. The sizes vary from 3" to 7".
