Big Plug No. 6

13 July 2012

A number of the indie yarn dyers are now selling “mini skeins” – great for making blankets – and I’ve come across a couple of UK ones recently.

Willowknits has a Mini Skein Club which doesn’t start until September but applications are now open.  You’ll receive 5 x 20g skeins of an 8ply/worsted silk every month for three months.

And Chroma Yarns sell mini skein packs – either 13 x 10g skeins (in 13 colours), or 4 x 25g skeins (2 of each colour).  These are a 4ply sock yarn with a wool/nylon mix. 

And both companies ship to Australia.

Happy Shopping!

  1. Thanks for the links. I’m looking at the silk, but the wool keeps calling me. I may need to put them on hold for now, but not too long.
