100% Premium Blend Cotton
9 Hanks of 28gm - 47mts
Available on backorder
Made from an all-natural 100% Premium Blend cotton, the new Scheepjes SKIES yarns are so soft you’d think you were holding a cloud. Dyed using beautiful shades of Indigo; a textile dye dating back to 4000BC, these yarns feature subtle colour contrasts and a hand dyed appearance. Ranging from the pale blue of a partially overcast Spring morning, to the deep Indigo of a midday Summer sky, transforming then to the sinister olive greens which overcome grassy pastures in the midst of a storm, capture the beauty and volatility of our glorious atmosphere with SKIES.
The Scheepjes SKIES collection encompasses 2 lines of yarn; Scheepjes SKIES Heavy and Scheepjes SKIES Light. With each sharing the same fibre content and range of colours, their differentiating feature is their weight, being DK and fingering respectively. When washing for the first time, we highly recommend using a colour catcher as there may be small amounts of residual dye.
Scheepjes SKIES Heavy is available in hanks of 100 grams, as well as assorted packs of mini 28g hanks. These assorted packs of mini hanks contains one hank of all 9 colours. Scheepjes SKIES Heavy is DK weight (28g = 47m) and is suitable for needles sized 6.00 mm.
