When all you need is just a little of a good thing…

Koigu Mini-Skeins

koigu_minis2

One-thousand Koigu Skeinettes landed in store yesterday and we’re so excited about the creative possibilities these little gems bring with them! The 10m/11yd mini-skeins come in myriad shades of Koigu’s hand-painted semi-solid and multi-colour palettes and are just $2.95 ea.  From pocket linings and turned hems on hats and sweaters in peek-a-boo contrast colours to colourwork projects, toys, and accent trims, mini-skeins provide an economical alternative to purchasing full skeins when all you need is a little.  We’ve been dreaming up all kinds of uses for these – here are just a few project ideas:
