Made from an all-natural 100% Premium Blend Cotton, the new Scheepjes SKIES yarns are so soft you'd think you were holding a cloud. Hand-dyed using beautiful shades of Indigo; a natural textile dye dating back to 4000BC, ranging from the pale blue of an overcast spring morning, to the deep Indigo of a midday summer sky and sinister green of a storm that's brewing on the horizon.
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. Due to the natural dyes used to colour the yarn, prolonged exposure to sunlight may discolour the yarn slightly. Please note, the hank needs to be wound into a ball prior to use with help of an umbrella swift and yarn winder.
Scheepjes SKIES Heavy is DK weight (100g = 170m) and is suitable for needles sized 6.00mm.
