The Scheepjes Skies Collection encompasses two lines of yarn; Scheepjes Skies Heavy and Scheepjes Skies Light. The yarns are made from 100% Premium Blend cotton and dyed using beautiful shades of Indigo. With each sharing the same fibre content and range of colours, their differentiating feature is their weight.
Scheepjes Skies Heavy is a DK weight yarn whereas Scheepjes Skies Light is a fingering yarn. Skies yarn is an all-natural and a vegan-friendly yarn. Ideal for crochet and knitting garments, home decor projects, shawls, blankets, accessories and toys.

The yarn is darker than I expected, but for the baby blanket I am making it doesn't matter. It stained my needles and bleeds onto my fingers while I'm working with it. I hope thorough wash of completed baby will resolve it. I don't want it to stain the baby.
