Blue gradient miniskein set - 5 x 20g BFL & nylon minis + FREE PATTERN
This listing is for a set of five miniskeins of hand dyed sock/4ply/fingering weight yarn on my Happy Owl Sock base. This is a versatile base for socks, shawls, gloves or any other items which call for this weight of yarn, and is a pleasure to knit or crochet. Happy Owl Sock is 75% superwash Bluefaced Leicester and 25% nylon. Each mini weighs 20g and contains 80m/87 yards.
You will also get a free pdf download copy of my Avon Ripple Socks pattern. A download link will be available after you checkout. If you add your Ravelry username in the comments section at checkout I will also send it to you there.
Miniskeins are very popular right now for making colourwork shawls, modular blankets or even extravagantly stripy socks, as well as all the miniature things that can be made out of yarn.
These yarns are hand dyed with professional grade acid dyes and then rinsed after the dyeing process. They are machine washable on a cool wash, but it is preferable to hand wash to preserve the colour. Please be aware that there may be a small amount of dye bleeding out in the first wash (although this is unusual because I am very thorough with my rinsing). Drying in direct sunlight can also fade the colour over time, so where possible, please avoid.
Please bear in mind that I dye skeins in small batches through kettle dyeing and hand painting. This leads to small variations even between skeins in the same dye lot so if you have a large project in mind, please contact me so that I can make sure you get skeins as closely matching as possible or I can custom dye a specific quantity up for you. Also please bear in mind that whilst every effort is made to ensure the photograph accurately reflects the yarn colour monitors do vary.
If you choose standard shipping, your package will be sent by standard first class (UK) or standard airmail (overseas) and will only be insured up to a total of £20 (including postage). This is the amount that I will be able to refund you for your whole package if it gets lost in the mail. If your purchase comes to more than £20 I strongly recommend that you choose the option at the checkout to increase the postal insurance. There is an option to increase the insurance by choosing tracked or signed for post.
