Scheepjes Skies Light Assortment (9 x 28g skeins) - Product Description

SKIES by Scheepjes are a collection of 2 yarns. Both dyed to the same colours using a natural Indigo dye, same fiber content but different yarn weights. SKIES Light is a fingering weight and SKIES Heavy is a DK weight. SKIES yarns are an all-natural fiber, 100% Premium Blend cotton, which are as soft as a cloud. Dyed with beautiful shades of Indigo dye, these yarns have a subtle variation in colour and a hand dyed look. The colours range from the pale blue of a sunny day, through a deep traditional Indigo blue to the green angry sky of a storm. All colours, including the greens are made with Indigo dye.

Indigo is one of the oldest textile dyes ever used. The oldest examples of Indigo dye being used dates back 6000 years ago in Peru. Many ancient civilizations adopted Indigo dyes for colouring cotton and silk in countries such as the Egypt, Mesopotamia and Greece. Indigo is mostly characterised by its rich blue colour.

The SKIES colours offer a beautiful fade effect when combined together.
SKIES heavy can also be combined with our Cahlista yarns.
SKIES light can also be combined with our Cotton 8 yarns.

*Note, we highly recommend using a colour catcher when washing this yarn for the first time, as there may be small amounts of residual dye.
