7 DWARF MINI SKEIN SET from our Toad Hollow Fairy Tale collection, Snow White and the 7 Dwarves
In the Disney film, the dwarves were all named so we took those names and assigned colors -
Dopey - purple and yellow
Happy - bright blue
Sneezy - blue and pink
Doc - teal green
Grumpy - green and gold
Sleepy - red and pink
Bashful - orange and golden yellow
In 2020, our yarn focus will be Fairy Tales. For May, we chose Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. We always had in our minds that we wanted to do mini skeins for at least one of the fairy tales and what suits better than the dwarves? So for this month, we have tons of options. There is Snow White in full size skeins, a set of 7 mini skeins for each of the dwarves, and The Dwarves which is one skein with all the colors of the minis mixed in. We will also be offering the Dwarf mini skeins in full size versions.
For The 7 Dwarf Mini Skein Set, we took inspiration from the jewels the dwarves mined. Then we assigned each of the colors a dwarf. Cori Eichelberger from irocknits used this mini skein set with Snow White to make the Hi Ho Shawl.
There are 7 minis in this set - each mini is 20 grams of 80% Superwash Merino, 20% Nylon high twist yarn; 80 yards each.
Each of the colors is also available in full size skeins here.
Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.
This soft, squishy yarn is perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters or any project where you would use a Fingering weight.
Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.
As always, sweater quantities are available upon request. Please just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’d love to help you.
