I love dyeing our Yak Sock base because its dark nature is perfect for the Banshee Yarns colourway so doing a set of minis is long overdue!
Each mini-skein set includes 6 20g minis, 120g of yarn, a total of 480 metres. Sets of 5 minis are very popular but I always find I'm a bit short for a shawl with only 100g which is why these sets are 120g.
Colour set 1 "Signature": Airgead, Shee, Priestess, Apocalypse, Atlantic & Fortune
More colours coming soon!
What to do with this set?
I'm currently working on a new version of my Down to the Sea shawl which was originally designed for 12 10g from The Knitting Goddess. You can follow along with me on Instagram.
You can also use these skeins individually with some of our full size Yak Sock skeins in the Slow Exposure Shawl, pattern available here. For this, you could use 2 100g skeins of Airgead, 5 of the yak minis and have your airgead mini left over for the cuffs & toes of the Moulin Rouge Socks!
These sets are also perfect for colourwork!

As with all handdyed yarns, some colour running may occur in the first washes. Don't leave your garment to soak unsupervised and remove the garment to refresh the water if there is colour run.
