Studio Seconds yarn

September 14: The purple gradient listed today is similar to the June club colourway, but the whole skein is one long gradient rather than two smaller gradients. It includes two shorted sections of pale contrast colour.

The yarns in this section are considered "seconds" and being sold at a 40% discount.  All seconds are final sale.

Skeins may be marked as seconds for various reasons, including:

  • uneven dyeing
  • knots or messy joins
  • underweight skeins
  • overweight skeins
  • experimental or small batch colourway
  • dye lot that didn't turn out as expected
  • last few skeins of a dye lot or colourway

We've grouped them into similar colour families and photographed them to give you some idea of what the skeins will look like, but each skein is different. We're unable to send photos or answer questions about specific skeins. 

Even though we're calling them seconds, each skein is still beautiful. We at Gauge almost always pull from the seconds bin when choosing yarn for our own personal projects.  

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
Our photos are intended to capture the overall feel of the colourway, but our dye lots do vary. More details on our base yarns are available here.
