Vintage Gnome Theme Set (Dye to Order)
This palette collection is for the yarn lover of mostly neutral colors! The twist is the pairing with a beautiful rust color for a pop! Great for those shy Gnomes who like to move around under the radar (and of course, any color work project, too)!
My idea for this theme is to pair one or two mini skein colors with the rust colored full skein to make each gnome! But of course, that's just a suggestion. But play with the set as you wish! The lightest color can be used for the nose, beard, and hands OR as the third or fourth color, too. For more gnoming color play, add a second set of the mini skeins and away you go!
This gnome set includes 6 Posh Sock 20g mini skeins and 2 Posh Sock 115g skeins, enough to make about 5-6 Imagined Landscapes gnomes.
An option of adding a second set of the mini skeins available for even more gnomes!
An option of just purchasing the Minis.
Posh Sock full skeins are 80/20 superwash merino/nylon fingering weight, approx 425yards, 115g each.
Posh Sock Minis are 80/20 superwash merino/nylon fingering weight, approx 74 yards, 20g each.

Please order gnome sets SEPARATELY from Ready to Ship items unless you want all your items to ship at the same time. Your order will ship in 1-2 weeks from your order date.
If you have any questions or would like a different combination from the available curated sets, please message me!
Colorways may appear differently on each of the bases due to their fiber composition or yarn weight. The skeins photographed are a representation of the actual colorways. Different settings on digital devices may also show colors differently on your screen.
No two skeins are exactly the same... even in the same dyed batch! This makes artisanal hand dyed yarns so special.
The hand dyed yarn is in the form of a hank or skein. It must be wound into a cake or ball before it can be used to knit or crochet! I offer a Winding Service for 50g and 100g skeins for your convenience.
Hand wash completed items in cool to cold water with a gentle detergent. Lay flat and/or shape to dry.
The yarn bases I use are sourced from mills with best farming practices in Italy and South America, and are mulesing free.
