These 20g mini skeins pack a lot of fun and colour into a small amount of yarn! They are perfect for colourwork of all kinds, stripes, gradient and fade projects. They’re also great if you only need a small amount of yarn, such as for a toy, or the toes and heels of a pair of socks.
Like their Nene 4 Ply counterpart, the yarn is smooth, worsted-spun and plied, with a lot of lustre and great bounce! The Bluefaced Leicester breed produces wool that is strong and still manages to be next-to-skin soft, making it ideal for a wide range of projects. This yarn will work fantastically in hats, mittens, jumpers, and shawls. It’s also hardwearing enough for socks, especially when knitted at a tight gauge. It wears well over time and pills very little. The stitch definition is excellent, making it suitable for beautiful stocking stitch, textured knit-purl patterns or brioche, lace, colourwork, and well-defined cables.


We hand dye all our yarn in our studio in the Royal Ordnance Depot, Weedon, by the Grand Union Canal. Our yarn has been hand dyed in small batches, and the colour consistency between batches is very good but can’t be guaranteed, so we recommend that you buy enough skeins for your project. If your project uses more than one skein, we also recommend that you alternate / stripe the skeins throughout.
Please note that although all our photographs have been taken in daylight conditions with a digital SLR camera, computer monitors and other colour screen displays vary widely, so the colours may appear differently in real life to how they do on screen.


Caring for your yarn:
When it comes to blocking or washing your project, use lukewarm water with your favourite wool wash, and lay flat to dry. We take great care to thoroughly set the dye and rinse the yarn afterwards, but differing water temperatures and chemicals can cause some dye to bleed. If you’re using it in a multicoloured project, we recommend washing a swatch first to test for colour-fastness.

    Really lovely colours. If you need lots, I recommend you get it all at once, because different orders can vary in shades!

    Great to be able to buy the neutrals to go alongside the rainbow sets. I would have bought the full size skein if it had been available but these were a good alternative while the full size skein wasn’t available.

    Lovely quality + just the colour I was after.

    The mini skies are great for trialing colour combinations and patterns before committing to a larger quantity. And are also great for socks and colour work of course.
    Visiting the studio will make you want to to buy them all.

    Becci is really helpful picking the colours you need, thank you. I used the storm cloud in my socks. I just wish I lived nearer and could visit more.

    I got a very dark grey, almost black, to go with an intense blue. Wonderful!

    I love the super vibrant colours and the yarns are soft and gorgeous to work with. Very excited about next knitting/crochet project 😃
