These skeins have 54 yards/20g each. They are dyed with a professional dye that is heavy metal/chrome free and environmentally safe. The yarn is classified as a sport weight yarn, but after dyeing it plumped up almost to a DK weight. It is super soft, machine washable (in cold) and dryable (low heat). Terrific for those colorwork projects!! Note: These skeins are hand dyed and will have small variations in color but I have tried to portray the actual colors the best way possible.
