What's in the Box?! - Halloween Edition - Pre-order

(Available for Pre-Order)

Regular price

€123.97

This product ships in late August 2020!



In my not so humble opinion, Halloween is (chopped off) hands down the best holiday there is.
So let's count down to Halloween in 2020 with a special Edition of the 'What's in the Box'-Box!

There are 2 versions of the box and we have 5 yarn bases to choose from.

Yarn Only: (retail value: € 90+ incl. VAT)

  • 13 macabre mini skeins* of yarn in the base you pick (260 grams total);
  • 1 Tote Bag.

Yarn & More: (retail value: € 160+ incl. VAT)

  • 13 macabre mini skeins* of yarn in the base you pick (260 grams total);
  • 1 Tote Bag;
  • 13 ghoulish goodies to aid in your stitchcraft and gloom up your day.

When you start opening your packages on the 19th of October, you should unwrap your last gift on the 31st.

Alternatively you could open all of it as soon as the box arrives, save the box until your birthday or be like me and put it away, forget about it because life is hectic, and find it when you're Marie Kondo-ing your house in 2 years time... 


Questions & Answers

What is included in this box?

Both boxes will feature 13 skeins of hand dyed yarn that weigh 20 grams each, totaling up to 260 grams. You also get a tote bag to carry your swag around in, or take out trick or treating with you.

The Yarn & More box has the 13 mini skeins, tote bag and includes (at least) 13 gifts to aid you in your fiber crafts. You can probably imagine I want to keep the exact contents a secret right now, but I can assure them they will be as awesome as you are.

Is everything in the Box going to be Halloween themed?

Everything in the Box will be uniquely 'Undercover Otter' flavored (aka: creepy and weird, just like we are). There will be some Halloween themed items in it, but we want to make sure that there is a good variety of items that can be used outside of a single season. So no, it's not just Jack-o-lantern's, orange and black.

What was in the 2018 Box?

The 2018 Box was themed around the movie 'Se7en' and the 7 deadly sins. It featured 7 mini skeins and a full skein of yarn. Next to the yarn, it featured goodies like chainsaw needle gauges, an enamel pin, wool-wash and other gadgetry. 

 

How does shipping work for this pre-order?

Shipping is calculated by destination and weight of the box.

The Boxes will be shipped out the last week of August, so they should arrive well in time for your 13 day countdown to Halloween to start. 

We really hope that around August the world has returned to a semblance of normal, and that postal services have found their feet in this new situation. However, we aren't clairvoyant. We will of course keep you updated on if the postal situation  around Covid-19 influences the shipping schedule of the 'What's in the Box'-Box. 

How is Tax handled?

Undercover Otter only charges taxes (Value Added Tax) to customers in the EEA (European Economic Area, well, and the UK for the duration of 2020). If you are shopping from outside the EEA, you do not pay these taxes.
Any and all taxes and import charges that occur at the border are the customer's responsibility.

Anything else I need to know about pre-orders?

We would like to ask you to not add any items other than this pre-order to your cart when ordering. If you do add other items, please be aware that this means those items will not ship until your box ships at the end of August!

Percentage based discount codes are not valid on this Pre-Order. If you have a discount code that comes from Creep Coins, you can however use it.
