Knitted Wit yarns are lovingly hand dyed right here in Portland, Oregon and come in a vast palette of both variegated and semi-solid colors. Smarties are mini skeins of the exact same yarn used in Knitted Wit’s Victory Sock. It’s a smooth 4-ply fingering weight yarn made of 80% superwash merino wool and 20% nylon.
It’s ideal for hardwearing knits like socks and mittens, yet also dreamy for sweaters, shawls and other accessory items. Smarties are perfect for colorwork and small projects.
This yarn is dyed by hand and will vary from skein to skein and batch to batch. Your skein will differ from the one pictured. Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. To achieve the most even possible color distribution, consider alternating skeins while working your project.
Mini skeins don't make solid stable balls when wound on a regular ball winder - the ball core is simply too large in comparison to the final side walls of the ball. As a result, they will tend to fall apart and tangle during shipping. We strongly recommend winding mini skeins by hand just before you use them. If you want to risk it, though, you can add yarn winding to your order here. Just know we will worry and chew our fingernails.
