This is a listing for Canadiana skeins with mistakes in them. Please pay attention when purchasing. The listings are clearly marked for clarity.

Knot in skein:
This skein has a little mistake! It has a knot which is marked with blue tape. Once you come to the knot, cut it out and then you can easily weave in the ends and keep on knitting. It IS dyed in the striping sequence shown below. I’ve marked the price down $5.00.

A striping mix up:
This skein has a big mistake on one end, I mixed up the stripes. This end has two deep blue stripes, NO GOLDEN YELLOW STRIPE, and then a deep red and deep green stripe. It IS NOT dyed in the striping sequence shown below. If you knit two socks from this skein you will end up with mismatched socks. I’ve marked the price down $10.00.

Designed to look like the famous Hudson Bay blankets, indigenous to Canada;-) Each skein is dyed so that the knitter can knit a pair of natural colored socks with a stripe of Deep Blue, Golden Yellow, Deep Red, and Deep Green, just like the blankets, with a narrower stripe of natural between each stripe. It has been dyed with the stripes occurring at each end of the skein, with lots and lots of natural colored yarn in between. If you divide the skein in half you will two equal balls, one for each sock:-)

This colorway was designed and originally sold by Everything Old Crafts, here on Etsy. She has graciously given me the rights to sell this awesome colorway. We can all thank her for this awesome colorway.

Steadfast: 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon 2-ply high twist. 464 yards, 100 grams. This is the newest addition to our arsenal of yarn bases, and is very strong, yet soft to the touch. The two plies in this yarn plump together making this yarn so soft. Perfect for socks, mittens, hats, and more yardage for scarves and shawls.

The test sock was a plain vanilla sock pattern knit on US 1 needles over 64 stitches. Your stitch size may be different than mine so the stripes may be slightly narrower or wider than mine.

~400 yds, 100 grams
7-8 stitches = 1 inch on US 1-3

Colors may vary some due to different dye lots or your monitor.
