Beautifully boxed, these 9 mini hanks of our SKIES yarn each contain 47m of SKIES heavy. Dyed with a natural Indigo dye, this 100% premium yarn is a definite ‘silver lining’.

Made from an all-natural 100% Premium Blend cotton, the new Scheepjes SKIES yarns are so soft you’d think you were holding a cloud. Dyed using beautiful shades of Indigo; a textile dye dating back to 4000BC, these yarns feature subtle colour contrasts and a hand dyed appearance. Ranging from the pale blue of a partially overcast Spring morning, to the deep Indigo of a midday Summer sky, transforming then to the sinister olive greens which overcome grassy pastures in the midst of a storm, capture the beauty and volatility of our glorious atmosphere with SKIES.

The Scheepjes SKIES collection encompasses 2 lines of yarn; Scheepjes SKIES Heavy and Scheepjes SKIES Light. With each sharing the same fibre content and range of colours, their differentiating feature is their weight, being aran and fingering respectively. When washing for the first time, we highly recommend using a colour catcher as there may be small amounts of residual dye.
