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.
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 and during use.
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.
This yarn is dyed by hand and will vary from skein to skein and batch to batch. Each one is an unique work of art full of subtle variation and beauty, so your skein will differ from the one pictured. To achieve the most even possible color distribution, consider alternating skeins while working your project.
Please buy enough for your entire project all at once. We will do our best to select skeins from the same dye lot or, if there is no dye lot, skeins that visually match. If you add multiple skeins of the same yarn to your cart you'll be prompted at checkout to select how to proceed if we have concerns about skeins matching.
While colors shown are accurate to the best of our ability, computer monitors and dye lots both vary so the skeins you receive may differ from what is shown.
