Here at Midwinter HQ, we hate wasting yarn. Often, when we wind off the 100gr hanks of Lithuanian Linen for retail, we are left with small amounts on the cones. These go into our minihanks, and the empty cones are then sent to a woollen mill to be used again. Where possible, we group the mini hanks into themed colour sets. Sometimes, however, the colours just won't really group, but they are great colours nonetheless. So we are now introducing the Minihank Grab Bags:
20 minihanks of approx 50 metres each (1000m total) of colours picked entirely at random. We can't guarantee any of the colours in the pack, only that you will get twenty different colours in all, including ones that are not part of the usual Midwinter Yarns line-up.
The minis are perfect for multi-colour projects such as knitted stripes or crochet motifs, for embroidery or as accents in weaving.
Each mini hanks measures approx 50 meters
100% Lithuanian Linen in a heavy lace / light fingering weight
approx 1000m per pack - over 250gr of yarn
**PLEASE NOTE: the pictures are examples of the kind of mix you might get, but each pack will be picked at random and may differ from these***
For those not used to knitting with linen, it may appear stiff and stringy at first, but it softens in your hands as you work with it and will continue to soften for the many years that you wear it. Fantastically hard wearing, once blocked it also holds lace patterns beautifully without curling back up on itself and drapes very well.
