We recommend buying enough yarn to complete a project. If there is a great difference between skeins, or if you wish to avoid colour pooling, we recommend working two rows from one skein and two from another throughout the project to provide an overall blending effect.
"Quantity available" refers to the most recent dye lot in stock. In some cases, we may have additional balls in older dye lots.
