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'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!
