“Float” is a common term for the strand of yarn that runs along the back colorwork.

Aptly named, the Float Tote is made for your colorwork projects!

With three (or five!) detachable buckets, you can take your multi-skein project on the go. I like to put my buckets in a line on the table in front of me, then snap them back into place when I put my project away. Less space? You can also fold back the large bag and keep your little buckets inside, placing the whole thing on your lap.
