If you purchase five (5) or more mini skeins, you may use code MINISET to reduce the price to that of a mini skein set ;)
For the first time online, you can purchase individual mini skeins from Laine & Lotus! Choose just one for a scrappy project, heels and toes of socks, edging for a shawl etc. OR put together your own mini skein set to create your own fade or fun colorwork project.
Each mini skein is approximately 92yds/20g of 75/25 Superwash Merino/Nylon Sock yarn
Have fun picking your colors!!
All yarn is hand dyed in small batches making each skein beautifully unique. Product photos are a representation of the skein that you will receive, but may not be the exact skein. Please note that even skeins in the same dye batch may vary in appearance. The colors of the skeins are represented as accurately as possible in these photos, however, actual colors may vary due to monitor settings, or lighting.
To keep consistency and avoid color pooling when knitting larger projects with hand dyed yarn, it is recommended that you alternate two separate skeins every row, or every two rows.
All yarns are dyed using professional acid dyes, or natural dyes when noted. Yarn is hand rinsed to the best of my ability, however, it is not uncommon for some light bleeding to occur during the first few washes, especially in darker or highly saturated colors. If bleeding is a concern, I recommend hand wash/rinsing your yarn according to the care instructions prior to beginning your project.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me prior to purchasing.
