Rainbow Miniskein Sets

We have about a dozen rainbow miniskein options currently available in our shop. Most are sock weight but there are some colourful DK options too. Pictured is the gift set of ten brightly coloured rainbow mini skeins of soft smooth sock yarn, each weighing approximately 10g (just over 100g of yarn in total) plus one full size (100g) skein of pretty grey on the same yarn base. 200g yarn in total. Plenty of yarn for full size adults socks and then some . . . or for adding bright colour to any project. Both the miniskeins and the grey are also sold separately.

These are a superwash treated 4ply sock weight with 75% merino wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for strength and durability. It is suitable for approximately 2-3mm needles. About 42 metres per 10g skein, or 420 metres per 100g, adding up to 200g (840 metres) total for the gift set pictured.

If you love a hand-dyed sock yarn then take a look in our shop as we have some beautiful original colourways hand dyed with love in our West of Scotland family home. We specialise in rainbows, miniskeins and self striping yarn but also keep a large stock of other colourful designs.
