Treasure Dust Minis are the same beautiful hand dyed & hand painted yarn as Treasure Dust Fingering, only in a mini skein! It is made up of three plies of superwash merino wool/nylon and spun with a ply of lurex for a soft, durable yarn with sparkle. There is enough lurex to add sparkle, without the scratchiness often associated with lurex yarns, and extra fine merino for a soft handle. Add nylon and you have durability too. Treasure Dust, both minis and fingering weight, knit up beautifully and so soft and snuggly. With minis, you have so many color combinations to make colorful shawls, socks with pizzaz or even striped hats or mittens! Choose from variegated, tonal, speckled and handpainted that are dyed bright or softer colors. Make sure to pick up a few skeins for your next knitting, crocheting or weaving project!

I do my very best to make sure there will be no bleeding of colors, but some colors are prone to bleeding and you should always wash handcrafted items separately. Even though this is made of a superwash wool, it is still wool and needs tender loving care.
I also take care in trying to represent true colors in the photos of my hand dyed yarns, but different devices can display colors differently. If for some reason you are not satisfied, please let me know so we can work something out.
I am willing to dye made to order colors and can always create a specific order amount if you need more than I have in stock, so don't hesitate to contact me!
