This set of hand dyed fading mini skeins (aka mini hanks) is dyed to order. See the current shipping estimates at the bottom of this page.
Each mini skein is 20 grams/90 yards dyed on the Lovely base, a 75% superwash merino/25% nylon 4-ply yarn. There are 5 minis per set. As with all hand dyed yarns, each skein in each dye lot may be slightly lighter, darker, or have slightly different color distribution.
Each set of mini skeins is designed to allow the color to shift from one color to the next in a fading- or gradient-type pattern, yet are distinct enough to use in striping projects. To achieve a striping pattern simply knit until you are ready to change colors, cut the old yarn and attach the new yarn. To achieve a fade pattern work 1 row of the new color, 3 of the old, 2 of the new, 2 of the old, 3 of the new, 1 of the old at each transition point. See the pictures above for an example of both styles.
Looking for a larger kit for a shawl or sweater? Looking for a different base yarn? The mini skein set is only available on the Lovely base, but I am happy to do full size (3-skein) sets of this colorway on any of my other available yarn bases. Just ask!
Orders may not be cancelled once they are placed. Please see my policies for more information.
It takes slightly longer to prepare and dye these sets than my normal colorways. While many dyed-to-order items will ship out earlier than the estimate, please expect that these sets will take the full shipping time.
