March 24: I found 6 extra skeins hiding in a tub. These six will ship with a white mini skein, not a grey gradient. Thanks!
We've recently upgraded our dyeing process and did a lot of colour mixing tests to see how the colours play together. I posted a little about it here and here. There was such an enthusiastic response to these fun swatches that I decided to dye extras: here they are.
Each colour test kit is the same amount of yarn as one regular skein (115 g / 4 oz), divided into two parts:
Each kit is one-of-a-kind with variations as I tweaked and tested my dye recipes. Some are brighter, some are darker, some are muddier, some are cheerier. The photos show some of the differences in the rainbows and greys.
We sell regular and XL skeins:
115 g (4 oz) is a standard skein
170 g (6 oz) is 1.5 times a standard skein
More more detail, see our base yarns.
Our photos are intended to capture the overall feel of the colourway, but our dye lots do vary. Look here for more info about our yarn, including a description of our base yarns.
