What is a Mystery TANGLED Oopsy Skein?
It can be any of our yarn bases or colors. It will arrive unlabeled. These are skeins that either arrive already flawed or get wonked out during the dye process.
•A skein that is tangled/tossled and will require a bit more time and love to wind into a ball
•A skein with a noticeable break/knot/blip in the yarn that will need to be cut and spliced
•A general boo boo in the skein
It's a total mystery but a great deal!
I love the oopsy skein option. My husband and I have a large blended family with 7 children so I don't always get to splurge on your full price skeins. With that being said, having the ability to buy less than perfect skeins still fills my need for quality, beautifully dyed yarn when the budget is a little tighter. I don't mind untangling a skein, and I don't mind yarn that didn't dye as well as the rest of the batch. My kids love having one of a kind beanies. And it just makes it that much better when the budget allows for your gorgeous full price yarn.
I ordered this on a whim and was glad I did. Beautiful yarn in a color I was curious about. It's really fun not knowing what is coming in the package. I'm thinking about doing it monthly as my own little yarn "subscription."
I love these. I like the surprise of not knowing what I'm going to get, and maybe its just me but I really enjoy de-tangling yarn. I would defiantly buy it again.
I have purchased these several time and have never been disappointed. This last one did take a bit more time to roll since it had to be done by hand, but it is still so beautiful! I made it into a prayer shawl for my cousin. It is gorgeous! This is really a great way to spend a little less money on these fabulous yarns if you don't need a specific color or weight for your project.
I purchased two of these, one I can't tell where the oops is, it's just beautiful yarn, the other is cream and reds/brown with light blue dye spotted over the cream, so not super great, but the yarn itself is beautiful and will make a lovely little scarf regardless. Will totally buy again
I love this offering and will be ordering this again!! The yarn and colors are wonderful and not knowing what you are getting until you open the package makes it that much more fun! Another inspiring offering from Chandi and the EFA family. Thanks for all you do!
Love the oopsies- great quality yarn and a surprise to boot. I knit and crochet so always nice to have a variety of colors and yarn weights.
I ordered 6 of these and I don't regret it. They're not as tangled/knotted as you would fear, or have as many dying blips. They look almost as perfect as the regular skeins. They do need some love to make into a workable ball, but it's worth it. The only thing that would make these better is if they came with some information on the tag. The tag says, "Mystery/Tangled Oopsy"; it would be good if these tags were to say the yarn gauge, i.e. worsted, fingering, dk, etc., yarn composition, and include washing and care instructions. Other than the lack of information on the tag. I love all of the colours and yarns I received and will definitely ordered these again.
I was very excited to receive the yarn in the mail! The yarn had only a few odd dyes on it , but the overall color (mine was orange) was quite beautiful! I recommend this for anyone who loves surprises!
I ordered the oopsey skein to try this yarn - keep seeing the lovely pictures but wasn't sure about ordering yet. I was glad I got purple for my color - was afraid I would get orange (not my favorite). The only thing that could make it better is to know yardage and fiber content.
