More Information

The yarn cakes are plied not twisted. We added some beads to the centre pull to prevent the yarn from splitting whilst you are working with it. If you want to start your project with the outside colour first, just simply change the beads to the outside end of the yarn cake.

The colour change is set at even rates and are secured with tiny slip knots, which will be small enough to not be noticed in your finished work.

The yarn weights and recommended hook sizes are as follows:

  • 3ply ~ 250m/50g (rec. hook size 2.5-3mm) (Fingering/Lace/0)
  • 4ply ~ 188m/50g (rec. hook size 3-3.5mm) (Sock/Superfine/1)
  • 5ply ~ 150m/50g (rec. hook size 3.5mm) (Sport/Fine/2)
  • 6ply ~ 125m/50g (rec. hook size 3.5-4mm) (Sport/Fine/2)

Did you know...

In 2007 the British car manufacturer Land Rover introduced Stornoway Grey as a colour choice for its vehicle line-up. In response, Stornoway’s councillor Angus Nicolson appealed to Land Rover to relabel the colour as Silvery Stornoway, fearing that the association of grey with dull and boring would hurt the image of the town with tourists.
