Baby items would be great in this yarn, very, very soft, but not fuzzy.

I have yet to knit an item for myself from this yarn. When I do I am thinking it may be one of the very few shawls I try. Something lacy I think. I love the feel of this yarn when I am working with it. This is one of the softest yarns I dye on a regular basis.

I have seen a few small knit, triangle shawls that this amount would be sufficient to complete.
For the weavers in the crowd I would suggest this as a weft with a 100% merino warp. And again I would expect this amount to do a small to mid-size scarf. I seldom weave, but I know this yarn could not take the abrasion needed to be a warp.

Dyed with Professional dyes, vinegar setting agent and Glauber Salt leveling agent.
I work at home, everything is as environment and mammal friendly as I can make it...

There is only the amount listed available for each skein on offer. I am mainly a sock or other small project knitter. When I dye yarns I reel them off in usually 3.5 to 5 ounce skeins and then dye the skeins. Skeins are dipped, splashed, rolled, dropped or what catches my fancy at that moment, one at a time into each colour of dye pot in turn. I do not worry overmuch about colours mixing in the dyepots. I let serendipity have its way. Dyeing days are fibre play days for me. Closest I come to planning the colours is when I select what colours to place in the pots originally, how much yarn I intend to dye for today and what order each skein will go through each pot in. After that what happens happens.

All shipping is set at the highest rate I may have to pay for each country listed for the amount offered. Rates can vary widely from one area of a country to another for custom shipping, please email me your postal code or zip and I will give you a quote.

Shipping on multiple items can be combined to reduced cost everywhere possible.

Happy crafting!
