**This listing is for one (500 gram) Grande Skein of hand-dyed yarn. The majority of my yarn is ready to ship but, in order to make each colorway as available as possible, some colorways will be dyed to order. This is why you will see a 1-2 week shipping time on your order. I try to ship as early as possible but occasionally it may take up to two weeks. **
A Grande Skein is a large skein of continuous, hand-dyed yarn, or several skeins tied together before dyeing to create a large skein.
This Grande Skein was made by tying 5 skeins of DK weight yarn together before dyeing, which means you will have 4 knots within the body of the skein. Just make a cut before and after each knot when you come to them, then rejoin yarn to the project.
How wonderful would it be to knit or crochet a project without having to rotate skeins in order to eliminate pooling? A Grande Skein makes these projects so much easier!
Color: Gothic Purple
Biscotti DK Weight: This 4-ply DK Weight is 85% Superwash Merino Wool/15% Nylon. This is a soft, bouncy DK weight yarn made with 19 micron wool. The yarn takes up the dyes very well and creates wonderful stitch definition on your knitted and crocheted items. A 500 gram Grande Skein has 1225 yards of yarn.
This hand-dyed yarn is made by me! It was dyed using high-quality acid dyes. Each skein is truly a one-of-a-kind and is made in small batches. Because of the nature of hand-dyed yarn, you may receive a skein that looks slightly different than the skein pictured here.
I try my best to take photos to accurately represent the colors but since each computer/mobile device displays pictures slightly differently, colors may differ a little in person than what you see on your screen. if you have questions about color/photos, please send me a message. Thanks!
Washing: Machine washable (although, I always recommend hand-washing for best results), lie flat to dry.
