Adding to Knittique's growing Birthstone Collection (including hand-dyed yarns), my new Sapphire Scraplet Skeins start with light, sparkling blue hues with occasional hints of teal, getting subtly darker towards the end of each skein!

Weight: Approx. 8 oz.
PLEASE NOTE: All yarns will be wound into center-pull balls before shipping, so they'll arrive ready-to-use! If you'd rather your yarn was left in skein form (as shown here), you must let us know when you place your order. Thank you!
What are Scraplet Skeins™? Scraplet Skeins™ from Knittique are produced by hand-tying multiple strands of yarns together in a specific color sequence, creating multi-textured skeins that are truly unique; we rarely make more than 5 skeins of any one colorway, and of those, no 2 are ever exactly alike— the yarns that make up each skein vary considerably, although the color sequence will be consistent. Think of Scraplet Skeins™ as a multi-textural version of self-striping yarns!
MATERIALS: Each of our Scraplet Skeins™ incorporates a minimum of 20 different yarns, so each skein may contain any (or all) of the following fibers: wool, angora, cashmere, mohair, alpaca, viscose, cotton, silk, banana leaf fiber, soysilk, bamboo, acrylic, polyester, nylon, metallic. (The label will have the exact materials in your skeins clearly marked.)
COLORS: The sequence of colors on the color card is the same as in the skein; often when the yarn is wound into a skein, it can look as if one or more colors are more dominant than they actually are, so we include the color card photo to give you the most accurate color-sequence information. Please also note that when I offer more than 1 skein in the same colorway, the color sequence shown on the card will be the same, BUT your skein may not have all the exact yarns shown in the color card photo.
PATTERN SUGGESTIONS: You'll only need 1 skein* of this size (120 yds.) to make many of our Scraplet Skeins patterns, including the Garter-Stitch Pillow shown in the last photo.
*Please note that the yarn used to make the pillow sample is NOT exactly the same as these new Sapphire skeins. Also note that you may need coordinating yarn, including for the ruffled trim, to complete your pillow cover; see pattern description for more information.
And since there are 2 skeins available in this colorway, you could use them to make the Feather & Fan Wrap pattern— this would make a fabulous and luxurious gift!
Please note that this pattern is not included in this listing.
