We know that Knittique's Scraplet Skeins™ may be a little too, shall we say, exuberant for some lovely knitters, so we've created these special skeins to give you the same colorful, multi-textural experience, with a little dash of subtlety. Stranded Skeins™ are made to use either in combination with our Scraplet Skeins™ (see capelet photos), or to substitute for them— each 120-yd. Stranded Skein is the same yardage and gauge as the Scraplet Skeins™, so they're interchangeable in all Knittique Scraplet Skeins™ patterns!
Stranded Skeins™ are made by combining multiple strands of yarns together by hand, creating multi-textured skeins that are truly unique; no 2 skeins are ever exactly alike. They're even more unique because each Stranded Skein includes at least 1 yarn that was hand-painted exclusively for Knittique!
Because each skein is one-of-a-kind, the fiber content varies with each skein; please read the Materials list carefully.

MATERIALS in the Tidepool Stranded Skein: wool, nylon, polyester. From left to right in strands photo: hand-painted wool, variegated nylon ladder, variegated poly/nylon eyelash.
Weight: Approx. 8 oz.
Yards: Approx. 120
Gauge: The gauge of this specific swatch, made on a U.S. #15 needle, is 9 stitches/13 rows in 4"/10 cm. The swatch shown here is made with the exact combination of yarns as in the skein.
Color notes: the hand-painted wool has small areas with shades of brown; this is more visible in the skein photo than the swatch and strand photos. Also, the ladder yarn is subtly variegated pale green and lavender shades. Please note that the color used in the pillow is NOT this color.
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!
PATTERN SUGGESTION: The Garter-Stitch Pillow pattern, shown here in Scraplet Skeins™ color Sapphire, is a good choice for the Tidepool skein (although Tidepool can be used with any Scraplet Skeins™ patterns). Please note that to make this pillow, you will need coordinating yarn to finish the pillow backs; 1 Stranded Skein is enough for the pillow top plus at least part of one of the overlapping pillow backs. (See listing for this pattern for more information about materials needed for this project.)
