The first month of the Little Known Holidays Yarn Club (September, 2018) celebrated Earth Science Week, which is held annually in early October. It is the perfect week to watch clouds, search for fossils, and get outside to explore.

Four stripes, alternating thin and thick: Jade, Cumulus (light gray), Glacier, and Iridium Anomaly (the high concentration of iridium in rock layers likely from the meteor strike that led to the extinction of dinosaurs).  

Would you like your yarn cranked into a sock tube so you just have to add heels, toes and cuffs? Check out our cranking service!

These skeins are made by a mill that does not add knots when processing the yarn, but does splice together individual plies. If you encounter one of these splices, you can just continue working with the yarn without doing anything special to it. The splices are strong and usually not noticeable in the finished work.

Yarn is dyed and heat set with professional acid dyes. All effort is made to exhaust the dyes, but some color bleeding may occur on initial washings. Cold water is recommended.

Multiple skeins are available under this listing and, due to the nature of hand dying, colors may vary slightly from the yarn pictured.
