The box contains one 150g ball of super-soft, hand-knotted colour changing yarn (the colour change is produced by dyeing each colour separately and then hand tying set lengths of yarn together). The yarn is cleverly packaged to work straight from the box, meaning you can knit or crochet effortlessly, avoiding tangles!

  • 150g Ball
  • DK Weight
  • 600 Metres

The box includes two free scarf patterns - one knit, and one crochet. Each pattern requires one 150g ball of Evolution, so the box will provide enough yarn to make just one of the patterns.
