How much yarn do I need for my project?

Please keep in mind that heavily textured patterns such as all-over cables or oversized looks can easily require extra yarn (375-550 meters). When knitting with two or more colors, the total yardage will be greater to account for the yarns being carried across the back of the work.

Estimate generously, and if you have leftovers … well, they’re a designer’s best friend! Please be aware of the fact that this yarn is hand dyed: therefore it’s impossible to re-create a colorway.
