Little Scorpion is written for 8 sizes, ranging from 32-74.25 in/81.5-188.5 cm finished bust, with a recommended positive ease of approx. 2-6 in/5-15 cm. The sample shows size 2 (38 in/96.5 cm), worn on a 33.5 in/85 cm bust, and the full schematic is included in the listing photo. If you have any questions regarding sizing, email me prior to placing your order.
Sizes are noted as 1 (2, 3, 4, 5) [6, 7, 8], and you can choose to swap the original MC and CC2 to create an inverted look! All options are photographed and available to select after you click add to cart. The sample was made with the original Ballentree Moor set.
Each kit contains the following:
Main Color (MC, pale green in sample) - 3 (3, 3, 4, 4) [5, 5, 6] skeins
Contrast Color 1 (CC1, orange in sample) - 1 skein for all sizes
Contrast Color 2 (CC2, dark brown in sample) - 1 (1, 1, 1, 1) [2, 2, 2] skeins
Cypress - 4-ply 100% Superwash Merino, 438 yds/400 m per 100-gram skein.
Please Note: Our yarn is hand-dyed in very small batches, so each skein (while using the same dye recipe, and even within the same dye bath) will be slightly unique due to the nature of the dyeing process. It is always recommended to alternate skeins for projects requiring more than 1 skein of a specific colorway. In addition, colors may vary from screen-to-screen and in person, but we do our best to accurately display each colorway. We are a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
A slight amount of bleeding in the first washes is normal, especially for vibrant and very saturated or speckled colorways. All of our colorways are left to set for several hours or overnight until the dye has exhausted, then rinsed and washed in unscented wool wash. If there is excessive bleeding, please contact us immediately so we can address and rectify the situation.
