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.
Beautifully boxed these 9 mini hanks of our SKIES yarn each contains 95m of SKIES light. Dyed with a natural Indigo dye, this 100% premium yarn is a definite 'silver lining'.
SKIES light can also be combined with Scheepjes Cotton 8 yarns.
This yarn assortment is featured in the Mountain Clouds Blanket crochet pattern by Christina Hadderingh, pattern available here.
