Usually only available on 500g cones we have a limited amount of shades available in 1kg cones, this is equivalent to 40 balls of 2ply Jumper Weight and gives you a huge saving on purchasing on ball (This price is also a 25% saving on purchasing two 500g cones). The yarn is oiled so must be washed when you have finished your project but you can knit straight off the cone. It's perfect for making yokes or if you would use the colour for lots of projects.
