This is a mini skein of sock yarn which I have hand dyed using professional dyes. It is a mix of yellow with grey blue speckles. Mini skeins are ideal for sock heels and toes, blanket squares, scrappy or fading scarves and shawls, and they would also look wonderful along with a dark colour in fair isle or colour work.
This skein contains superwash wool which means it can be machine washed on a wool wash cycle but I recommend hand washing and drying flat to prevent felting and help extend the life of your finished product.
Although I have washed and rinsed this wool after dyeing to remove any excess dye, some may remain especially with darker colours and so hand washing separately will also help avoid colour transfer to another item.
While I have tried to depict the yarn colours as accurately as possible, please be aware that colours can vary between monitors, and that as each skein is hand dyed, even skeins from the same dye lot may vary a little.
Recommended Needle Size: 2.5 - 4mm needles Gauge (stocking stitch): 28sts x 36 rows over 10cm/4 inches on 3.25mm (US 3) needles

I was looking for a greeny-yellow mini skein to put in my granny square blanket and it is perfect!
