These skeins are perfectly usable just not perfect enough to make the cut. They may contain a slub or two, dye lot not right or be shorter than the rest of the batch we have some blends and end of day yarns that just didn't make the cut. Snatch these up as they go fast. Each skein is at least 150 yards most are 200 and range from Sport to Bulky. Come check out the bargain basket in person or we can do grab bag style if you are shopping on line or give us a call and we can send you a picture of whats in the basket for you to make your selections.
