There is something about Mini-Skeins that just feels like such a treat, so we dyed some special, never-to-be-repeated colourways and put them together by the half-dozen for a perfect holiday gift!
Presented in a lovely gift box, each Mini-Skein is tucked into a sweet velveteen pouch and all wrapped in tissue. The perfect introduction to Mini-Skeins or to Spacecadet's beautiful colours, these little collections make a wonderful holiday gift.
Each set of Mini-Skeins is dyed in one of three colour families:
- cool blues and purples in the Cold Night Sky Collection
- warm rusts and reds in the Fireside Collection
- and the rich greens and browns of the Evergreen Collection.
Each set is unique and will vary from the samples pictured here, but each is beautifully coordinated within those three colour families.
Each Holiday Mini-Skein Collection is comprised of six 20g mini-skeins in a variety of individual colourways within a colour family, on assorted SpaceCadet fingering weight bases. Total yardage depends on the type of yarn in each set but ranges between 475 - 525 yards per set. Each set is one-of-a-kind and will vary from the yarns show here.
