A surprise skein for you!
We'll select a random, full sized skein of yarn for you! (Most valued around US $23-$39). It could be any of our yarn bases and any color. We are unable to take requests.
These may have booboos or might not! Most skeins will simply be colors we decided not to add to our line (perhaps they look identical to another formula, for example) or they might have a flaw or two. Perhaps a speck of unintended dye color, or a slight mill error. They might have white spots where the dye didn't take, be a bit of a messy or tousled or tangled skein or just in general have a slight mistake or two.
Regardless, you'll get gorgeous, hand-dyed yarn at a fun and reasonable price, plus be completely surprised when you open your package!
These oopsy surprise skeins are non-returnable.
I love the three colors that I received and their quality is amazing. These are the first hand dyed yarns that I have ever bought and I can't figure out what I want to make with them. Also I got one of the camel silk skeins and OMG!!!! who knew camel was so soft
I got 3 of them, and I love them. I plan to use them in a project. Thank you so much, might buy more.
This “special” yarn was a pleasant surprise- the usual quality with the smallest spot of red pigment, barely visible. Well worth the reduced price.
Lovvvvve! I think these oopsy beauties are so fun. I’ve ordered a couple now. The second as beautiful as the first. Such a neat little bit of mystery and surprise to look forward to! Will probably order one with each purchase just ‘cuz.
I really enjoy adding one of these to every order, its fun to see what you get! In my experience, they try to match the yarn weight and color scheme of the rest of my order. If I've ordered lace weight, I get a lace or fingering surprise skein. Since all EFA yarns are gorgeous, it's a fun way to add to my yarn stash!
I was lucky enough to receive a black, grey and gold tone Gorgeous "Pearlescent " worsted skein. It arrived super quick and was beautifully packaged. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
Lovely. Perfect color to contrast with the Garnet
I love the 3 skeins, especially the camel/silk in a rich russet color. I was nicely surprised.
I LOVE! the Oopsy Surprise Skein. I loved being surprised by what was in my mailbox! I was so happy with it, that I ordered another one. Both skeins are beautiful and I can't wait to make something with them.
I LOVE! the Oopsy Surprise Skein - it's so much fun not knowing what I'm going to get; I love the surprise. I ordered another one because it was so much fun to get a surprise. Both times the yarn was beautiful and I can't wait to make something with them.
Wonderful surprise skein! I thought this was going to be a skein that sat in my stash for a while bit I ended up casting on right away (for the Briarpatch cowl).
Oh so beautiful. I was not expecting it to be so gorgeous, I received the dk alpaca silk not sure the color but it reminds me of the beach. I’m currently making a hat with it for my husband’s birthday. I have always used cheapish yarn and this was first splurge on expensive yarn. It is wonderful to work with.
I really wasn't sure what to expect from a mystery grab bag but all the yarn was so gorgeous I just had to dive in. I got three different yarns and they are all better than the one before. I could guess at the reasons they didn't make the cut, but one I couldn't at all, and they reasons they didn't won't matter to me once it is knitted or crocheted up so one HAPPY OOPSY! camper!
It’s a really nice yarn, I love the quality and colors, love it
It’s a really nice yarn, love the colors and quality! Love it!!!
love the yarn. it is beautiful. everything it was described.
I received the Yak Silk Lace in a grayish blue....or blueish Gray...either way it is so pretty. This is a type of yarn I hadn’t tried so I am excited to use it. Thinking about using it on the Wine country shawl with two other different yarns.
I took a risk and decided to try the mysterious oopsie yarn. Boy was I happy. Such pretty and soft fingering and lace skien. Now I just need more to match to make something lovely.
Very pleased with my purchase of this "Oopsy Surprise Skein". The "oopsy" is nearly invisible and the quality is top notch.
I didn't really like the color of the yarn. But then again it's an oopsy.
I loved this so much I bought another 5! As a beginner knitter I am not familiar with the world of yarn, but am now entranced with possibilities. Being able to feel how amazing different yarns feel and behave has been invaluable. That's why I bought another 5 of them. Knit on people!
This was my first order and I was so excited when I received them. The first was a beautiful shade of muted red wildflower. My second was an mix of beautiful donkey grays. I can not wait for my next order.
Fast shipping, super soft and beautiful! Can't wait to find a project for this skein, and wish I had bought more! Not sure what the "oops" was, but I love it
I really wasn't expecting much, boy was I pleasantly surprised. I ordered 3 oopsie skeins. All 3 were absolutely beautiful and excellent quality. Really couldn't find the oopsie.
I feel like I totally lucked out! The yarn I received is beautiful. The quality of the yarn itself and the color is gorgeous. I have wanted to buy yarn from you for a long time and you did not disappoint. I will definitely buy again! I can't wait to make something out of what I did get. Thank you!
I received a beautiful almond-latte/caramel colored yarn in Sincere fingering-weight. It's just as lovely as a "regular' skein of Sincere sock yarn.

I took a chance leaving a message on my order as to my loooove of a beautiful bright oopsy I’d received a day earlier. I know that there’s no way to make requests, but wow was my order worth it! Of the 4 I ordered this time, I got WAY better than I’d even hoped. Instead of figuring out what to pair that earlier skein to, I got enough to use it alone for a project (giddy dance) and another super bright, almost neon, aqua that will go WONDERFULLY with a couple skeins of a variegated color I’ve been holding on to. BTW....ALL Pearlescent Fingering, which is just magical in these colors!!! I have added an oopsy or two to my order 3-4 times, and this order for 4 of them, and no matter what I’ve received, I have NEVER been disappointed!!
I have ordered this twice so far. The first time I received 2 Resilient Sock in a soft denim-like colorway worth little splashes if deeper blue, and 2 skeins of a deep lavender Sincere Sock which is sooooo soft! The second time, I received a midnight blue Worsted weight and the MOST AMAZING sunfire orange Pearlescent Fingering I could have imagined! I would order 10 of these if I could!! Personally, I’ve had no flaws in mine.
I love the surprise of what yarn you get.
I recieved one two of the Oops skeins and OMGOODNESS are they AMAZING! I will always get my yarn from Here, ESPECIALLY for special projects that are important to me!
Loved being surprised by the Oopsy. Love the feel & weight of the yarn. I would buy an Oopsy again.
the oops surprise skein i got was a teal-ish/green / purple, 840 yds of wisp lace. i hope what i just ordered will blend with it to make something!
one of my 0opsy surprise skeins was 840 yds of wisp lace, teal-ish green and purple color. hoping what i ordered will blend with it to make something!
Beautiful Yarn! So soft and the colors are beautiful! Oopsy Skein? Not really!
it's a soft bulky skein, nice pale color. Have to figure out what wo knit with this weight
soft and like the color , have to figure out what to knit with a bulky weight.
When I order this I don’t what what to expect in the mail and to my surprise I love each and every skein I’ve gotten , you can’t go wrong no matter wha
I ordered 3 skeins, and got 2 colorways that will coordinate beautifully! Can't wait to get started!
Beautiful! Can't wait to use it!
I ended up needing one of the other colorways for a project and figured why not add this to my order. Love the colorway I ended up with. All yarn from this site is beautiful even the oopsy skeins :)
Only liked one out of 7.
I Ordered 3 Oopsy Skeins this time Around & Was THRILLED To Have Gotten 2 Skeins of DETERMINED That Were SLYGHTLY DARKER Than the Original ColorWaye Is. Also Got a Skein of HOLLY & IVY on Alpaca Silk DK That's Just Gorgeous. I've NEVER Been DisAppointed By/With Any Oopsy (or Regular) Skeins I've Ever Gotten.
In the words of Bob Ross, there are no mistakes, only happy accidents. These Oopsy skeins are just that! I have fallen in love with every mystery skein I've gotten- simply gorgeous - and you can't beat the price!
I ordered 6 skiens of mystery yarn and I can’t say I’m disappointed in any of them. Each one is delightfully different from a chunky to a really nice emerald green sport weight yarn to some fingering yarn, and glimmer and even a taj! I wouldn’t really call any of these imperfections, it’s just a unique hank of yarn with a unique personality trait, albeit a small dye mark or really nothing at all. Most of all I love the surprise of what I’m going to get! Super fun way to get some hand dyed yarn at a fraction of the cost. So really what do you have to loose? I will definitely be buying more of these in the future as a surprise treat to myself every once in a while.
I Am ALLWAYS Thrilled & Pleasantly Delighted with Anything Purchased from Chandi & Expression Fiber Arts. I Ordered 2 Oopsy Surprise Skeins This Time... #1 Is the Same As DETERMINED (Gorgeous Array of Shades of Orange) #2 is BeautyFull Greens-Greys-Deep Teal on the CashSilk Sock Base. I Am Absolutely THRILLED with My Purchase... And HOOKED (Pun Very Intentional Here) on This Yarn. THANK YOU To Chandi & Tim And EVERYONE Who Dyes These Gorgeous Skeins of Yarn.
I loved this yarn! I was so happy with the color ( a gorgeous peach) and the weight of the yarn (fingering), I started working with it right away! Overall an amazing purchase, and I will buy this again!
I'm always a bit hesitant when buying yarn online, as I'm very texture driven, so this was a fantastic opportunity to check out what the yarns were like. I got two skeins, one a red/maroon Cashsilk where the main oopsy seems to be a few areas where the dye didn't take properly and a slight tangle in the skein. It's not a colour I normally work with, so I'm very excited to play with it. The other skein I got was a skein of Alpaca Silk DK in what I think is the colour Tranquil. I swear, this is the softest, most beautiful fibre I have ever had the pleasure of owning in my life. The skein is quite messy but I don't even remotely care, I'm so excited to make this into something so I can carry the soft everywhere with me. In fact, I'm so in love with it that I just had to order some more :D All in all, a wonderful surprise and a great way to check out what the yarn is like before committing to a full priced skein
Received 2 skeins. First is Oasis Camel Sulk Fingering with beautiful deep & light shades of purples & browns. Second skein is Superwash Merlino Silk Pearlescent Fingering that is a creamy white with repeating touches of light blue in one section. Can't wait to see this one work up. I love them both
It is always such fun ordering surprise skeins from Expression Fiber Arts because there is no possible way to be disappointed. If you aren't concerned with having a specific color or yarn weight this is a great way to treat yourself to some luxury yarn without breaking the bank. Regardless which yarn is sent you're getting a fabulous deal, no less than $3 off per skein. As for these being "oopsy" skeins, well, only the dyer would know as every one of the dozen or so skeins purchased has seemed quite perfect. When color and weight aren't important and one skein will do this is this the perfect way for your project to have that bit of luxury at a bargain price.
I ad so much fun ordering 2 skeins, there was just an extra layer of excitement as I waited for my surprise to arrive and they are both gorgeous! one is a marsala color with some tiny white spots (that I plan to fill in with fabric markers) and the second is a Dewy DK in a dark emerald color and it looks perfect so the oopsy may be it wasn't the color they were aiming for. I will for sure order again!
My surprise is a worsted weight super wash merino silk in beautiful shades of pink. Can't wait to make my cowl. Feels so soft. Very pleased with my surprise.
love them would buy more anytime work great for my projects thank you.
I purchased two oopsy surprise skeins last week. Cant wait to see how the grey/black and blotchy blue knit up! Never used a merino silk blend before! soo soft !
I received cashsilk sock yarn and it is so beautiful and very soft. I will probably make a cowl with it. I think I will also be ordering more "surprise" skeins!
This 100% merino skein feels wonderful. And is in gorgeous shades of orange...unfortunately I despise orange, so can't get too excited about this yarn. But I was told the choices are completely random, so that's on me and now I know better.
This is absolutely lovely !! Perfect colours as well. I cannot wait to get my crochet hook into it!! :) Delivery to Canada was fantastic as well! I completely recommend this!
I love the skein I got, a beautiful medley of teals and eggplant purple - stunning! This whas such a great bargin and to be honest, it doesn’t look too tangled at all. I really recommend this product!
It was beautiful, it was a gift for my daughter. She loved it as well.
I loved the surprise yarn that i received. It actually turned out to be the weight that i mainly use. I cannot wait to figure out what project i will incorporate it into.
I decided to get myself a gift - so a surprise skein sounded fun to me! I got a yummy skein in blues and greys - it is so beautiful I don't know yet what to do with it - but for now it is so pretty and soft as it is I may just love on it for a while - LOL - doesn't everybody caress yarn that is so soft as this is?
I love my blue dk tester. Super soft, bright tonel & very fast shipping. I will be back for more soon.
My surprise skein was the Superwash Merino Silk Pearlescent worsted weight that was a tester in shades of pink. It's sooo soft and comfortable to work with.
I got a surprise skein just for the heck of it and I wasn't disappointed. It was a tester of a cream to golden brown DK weight. Very soft and very pretty! What's funny is that it actually contrasted beautifully with the dark blue I purchased at the same time - too bad they're different weights.
I always love every skein of yarn I get from you and this time is no different!! Beautiful!!!!
My surprise skein is a Tester that is light to medium blue in color. It's a Merino Wool Silk Pearlescent Worsted base. What makes it even more lovely is that the color matches wonderfully with the Sapphire skein I ordered at the same time. I am very pleased with my order.
It was a tester color similar to the June Alexandrite on Fingering Pearlescent Wool. Stunningly beautiful yarn. I love blues and jewel tones, this yarn really made me happy.
I ordered a surprise skein just for the fun of it. Happened to get a lovely purple and teal dewy dk that matched the project I was working on perfectly! Thanks EFA!
Lovely soft soft yarn colors a soft and blend exquisitely they are deep and they are very rich .the blues,the purples ,lavender are put together with a white which helps them exquisitely it is alovely test skein
My mother ordered this for me. I received a purple & burgundy Dewy DK tester skein. It was my first skein from EFA & I'm in love with it!! It's so soft and the colors are very vibrant.
Love the yarn it's beautiful and soft
This surprise skein was simply stunning. I can't wait to sink my hook into it!!!
I received a gorgeous, silky deep blue/green and brown skein. The surprise is half the fun!
I knew the yarn would be high quality, which it was. The best part was that it was it is shades of light blue, one of my go-to colors. I couldn't have gotten a prettier yarn if I had picked it out myself.
the quality as usual is excellent, but the color is just not very pretty. Disappointed but knew that could happen...will stash and maybe inspiration will pop in my head
My surprise skein arrived yesterday and what a surprise it was! Dewey DK in a gorgeous shades of maroon/red. How do you do it? It's perfect for my next project, a cowl with large cables... The yarn is sooo soft and beautiful, I just want to sit and hold it for awhile...Thank you Chandi, for this gorgeous surprise!
I couldn't be happier. The color way I received was gorgeous and the yarn itself was super soft and easy to work with
I had always been used to the bargain basement yarn when I did my crochet work. I took a long break for crocheting and when I returned to the crochet world I had the good fortune to meet up with Expression Fiber Arts. I thought the prices were a little steep for me, but now that I have made a few purchases, I find the quality is way above the pricing.
The surprise forced me out of my comfort zone color wise! I received a red color way and since I would never gave purchased red directly it was a surprise! Currently have it marked for a scarf just looking for the right pattern.
The skein I received was a wonderful surprise! It was soft and wonderful colors and truly me. Don't know how you knew. And what I liked best is that is was a colorway that I hadn't seen yet! Although I would have been just as happy with one of the wonderful ones I had seen. Getting unknown skeins helps me think outside my usual styles and ideas so I don't get boring.
The range of colors are spectacular. It's obvious great care and effort are put into each skein. I like crocheting with your products because of the way they feel.
Beautiful pink sock yarn ....love it.
Love it the colors are exquisite and will work well withe several of my planned projects now which one will it be? Love Lynda and thank you so much
I absolutely love my surprise skein! I love the yarn base (resilient sock) and the colors are perfect! Reminds me of a lighter version of Pensive :) super cute and squishy!
I have received some of the most vibrantly colored and uniquely textured skeins from earlier color lines this way. In this case, it was a silk yarn with sparkles in some of my most favorite colors ever. This deal is magnificent and I would always buy this again, not only for quality but also for the beautiful surprises received. This is really a bargain!
I received "Charcoal Enchantment" Cozy Silk Lace in purple, fuchsia, grey and pink shades, 800 yards. So soft with a sheen. It will be beautiful when knit. Could be a long gradient. What a surprise because it wasn't any of the choices in the current items for sale. NOT to mention that I lean toward these colors. :) Thank you Chandi.
