About our site

Wool2Dye4 manufactures and distributes undyed yarns intended for hand dyeing. Most of our yarns are presented on skeins (10 per kilo package). Almost all of our undyed yarns are sold by the kilo (2.2 pounds).  Our skeins weigh 100 grams, the industry standard for hand knitting yarns, and each kilo package contains ten skeins of 100 grams each.  It is important for new dyers to understand that we chose this skein weight so that our clients who dye for resale will always be on equal footing when compared to commercial yarns. Watch out, though, because the quality of your handdyes will immediately be equal to or nicer than the commercial yarns in the shops, so be prepared for your sales to grow and grow quickly and do your best job on these yarns.  They will make your work look gorgeous.

You can see inventory figures on every yarn on our website on the detail page of the individual yarn.  Click on the picture to go to the yarn's details page and look for the inventory figure above the price.

Skein Weight Exceptions:  We have a few yarns offered on 150gr skeins, and they are listed in their own category called 'Shawl weights."  We have many customers who use sock weight/fingering yarns to knit garments other than socks, and this 150gr skein is a perfect yardage for most shawls.   So, the package of ten skeins weighs 1.5 kilos, and the yardage will be quoted for the 150 gram skein. 

Also, please do not order yarns with the idea that you will return them if you want something thicker or thinner, or a different yarn altogether.   Ask for a sample if you are in doubt.  We are always happy to send you a sample of any yarn.

To locate the listing of yarns you are interested in, either enter any word of the yarn title in the Search box, or use the categories on the left of every page to drill down your choices.  First, use the 'Category' list to search for your yarns. A yarn may be listed in several categores -- by weight (Lace, Fingering, Sock weight, Sport, DK, Worsted/Aran, Bulky).  By fiber content: blends, Alpaca, Bluefaced Leicester, Cashmere, Falkland British Merino, Merino, Silk.  If this does not bring up the yarn you are interested, and you know it's name, enter the name in the search box which appears just below the banner on Home Page.  Please note that all prices are quoted in US dollars.

Yarns presented on cones are listed in the cone category, as well as by fiber. (See Superwash/Felting/Cones and click on Cones in the fly-out menu.)  Please be sure to read the information about cone weights on the Cone category page.
