Sknitches began in 2006 as a one-woman operation with the goal of bringing quality, hand-dyed yarns to knitters around the globe. All base yarns are fine quality wools and blends dyed with professional quality lightfast, colorfast dyes. Due to the nature of hand-dyeing, some variation batch to batch will occur. While the yarns are kept in a smoke-free, sanitary environment, please be advised if you have allergies to cats as this is a cat-friendly household. I hope you enjoy your experience with our colorful yarns!
