One skein is usually enough for a pair of socks up to shoe-size 45/10,5/13 (EU/UK/US). A regular size sweater needs 450-500g.
If there is more than one skein in stock, they are all from the same dye-lot. Due to the nature of natural dyeing the skeins you purchase may vary slightly even within a dye lot.
It is commonly advised, that if you have purchased 2 or more skeins for a project and want to aim for a good colour transition, alternate the skeins every couple of rows/rounds or when starting a new skein alternate a few rows with the old skein.
Every attempt is made to ensure the colourway represented on screen is as close to the actual colourway as possible. However, colours may appear different due to variations in monitors and screen setting.
