Made from an all-natural 100% Premium Blend cotton, the Scheepjes SKIES yarns are so soft you’d think you were holding a cloud. Dyed using beautiful shades of Indigo; a textile dye dating back to 4000BC, these yarns feature subtle colour contrasts and a hand dyed appearance. Ranging from the pale blue of a partially overcast Spring morning, to the deep Indigo of a midday Summer sky, transforming then to the sinister olive greens which overcome grassy pastures in the midst of a storm, capture the beauty and volatility of our glorious atmosphere with SKIES.
The Scheepjes SKIES collection encompasses 2 lines of yarn; Scheepjes SKIES Heavy and Scheepjes SKIES Light. With each sharing the same fibre content and range of colours, their differentiating feature is their weight, being DK and fingering respectively.
- When washing for the first time, we highly recommend using a colour catcher as there may be small amounts of residual dye.
- Combine SKIES Light with our Cotton 8 yarns for extended possibilities with colour as these yarns share the same weight and fibre content.
Beautifully boxed these 9 mini hanks of our SKIES yarn each contain either 47m of SKIES heavy or 96m of SKIES light. Dyed with a natural Indigo dye, this 100% premium yarn is a definite 'silver lining'.
