Big Plug No. 613 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.
