This week is all about masses of colour.
For a long time we sold sock yarn mini skeins in sets of seven. It worked if you wanted several bits of colour to add to a project. If you wanted to knit socks you had to be quite careful about how much of each colour you used. If you wanted to make a shawl or scarf you needed more yarn.
The other thing that I wanted to do was have more colours in a set.
So mini skein sets will now have 12 x 10 g skeins in our 4ply British wool and nylon base. That gives you 120 g and 480 m of yarn per set. Plenty for socks. Plenty for scarves and shawl.
Lots more fun.
We’ve started the mini skein sets with a couple of colour wheels.
Printer Ink Colour Wheel – Hues
Printer Ink Colour Wheel – Shades
We also wanted the option of a really big colour wheel – so we’ve dyed up a 36 shade colour wheel and split it into three sets.
Pink towards Turquoise
Turquoise towards Gold
Gold towards Pink
I love the idea of a big project with all three sets, or a more subtle project using just one.
Finally for this week, a couple of sets based on a single colour. We’ll be adding more colours to this range, so let me know what you’d like to see.
Shades of Turquoise
Shades of Grey
Each mini skein set has 12 different colours, gives you 120g and 480 m of yarn and costs £20.50 including VAT.
The shop will open at 1900 on Friday 6th of April.
