Notice anything different about the skein of STR Lightweight that came with the May shipment?
Great color? As always.
100% superwash merino? Plied tight, just how we like it.
Yardage? Weight? Wait… stop the stitches!
Yup. You're reading the label correctly. This skein is approximately 405 yards / 370 meters and weighs in at a hefty 5.5 ounces /155 grams. The typical STR Lightweight skein is 360yds / 329m and 4.5oz / 127g. That's more yarn than you bargained for, eh?
For those who are interested in purchasing more of the Maia colourway in STR Lightweight, we're selling it in this larger skein size for $24.50. This way, you can purchase enough yarn for either of May's two incredible patterns. Keep in mind, Maia is only availble for purchase for 2011 RSC members.
As a larger-footed fella, I am thrilled by this. Are you?
