• 4 skeins in „Oatmeal“ , 165 g / 413 yds / 377 m used for sample
• 3 skeins in „Tibetan Sky“, 106 g / 265 yds / 242 m used for sample
• 2 skeins in „Mustard“, 73 g / 183 yds / 167 m used for sample
Note: Most skeins have a little extra yardage. I actually only needed 3 skeins of Oatmeal and 2 skeins of Tibetan Sky, but it was very close. It’s safer to get the extra skein.
