There is no other feeling like it; dyeing yarn with botanical dyes makes me feel good!
Most of these mini-skeins I dyed from plants I planted (from seed) last March in my greenhouse.
These mini skeins contain a certified organic superwash merino/Nylon (80/20) yarn and botanical dyes. The weight of each mini skein is 25 grams. Each set is 100 grams. The yarn is three-ply, and I recommend a needle size of 2mm to 2.5mm.
To care for your finished item, I recommend hand washing with a delicate soap like Eucalan Delicate or Unicorn Fibre wash and laying it flat to dry. I cannot guarantee that the colour will not shift if you use any other product to wash your yarn. Also, use only COLD WATER at all times. The big difference with using natural dyes instead of chemical dyes is how water can impact the colour of the yarn, so I cannot stress this enough to use cold water – dry flat.
I love knitting socks and invite you to join my Facebook group, Lets Knit Socks. We have had two KALs in 2023 so far, and I’m getting ready for another one starting May 16th. These mini skeins would be perfect for the KAL in a BIG MAGIC BALL. I love mini skeins for helical knitting as well. I have a few patterns on Ravelry that I think you will enjoy; some of them also come with videos. My second favourite thing to knit with mini skeins is blankets. Who doesn’t love a granny stripe blanket if you crochet or a mitered square blanket to knit up?
Thank you for reading about my organic sock yarn mini-skein sets. Make sure you favourite this shop so you don’t miss out on my next shop update. Not only will there be more mini-skein sets but I’m working hard to get other weights of yarn in as well!
