These skeins are perfectly normal. They have not been caked, reskeined or anything else of that sort.
They are just the skeins that I made the swatches from. To make swatches, I put the skein on an umbrella swift and knit/crochet directly from that. That means these skeins are still in the same exact order in which they were dyed, they just have a few yards missing.
I made sure I did my swatches in Fingering Weight as most sock knitters do not need an entire full 100gram skein to knit a pair of socks.
- Boardwalk Sock
- Fingering Weight - 4 ply
- 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon
- each skein is between 94 and 98 grams - I will label them
- a 100 gram skein is suppose to have 463 yards
I now offer a sweater quantity discount. Please see the chart below for the codes and corresponding discount.

Leave me a comment in the checkout notes and I’ll be more than happy to cake any skein up for you.
This listing is for a single skein. Please purchase your desired quantity using the quantity selector.
While I strive to take as accurate of a photo for each colorway, photos are a representation and your skein will not be exactly the one(s) in the photo(s). I hand dye/paint/speckle each individual skein and as is the nature of indie dyed yarn, every single skein is unique. I hope that we can all accept and be ok with that fact. To prevent color pooling in larger projects, it is recommended that you alternate skeins either every row or every other row.
I soak in an unscented (or minimally scented) soap and wash each skein until the water runs clear. Some color bleeding for the first few washes may be possible though so it is advised to wash separately.
Additionally, while superwash items are technically machine washable, for the longevity of your piece, it is recommended that all handmade items are hand washed and laid flat to dry.
