Anyone who has spent time downtown Hamilton in the past 40 years, likely has also visited Cheapies. Perusing their massive stock of CDs, DVDs, Vinyl (and lets be real….cassette tapes, VHS tapes too) was a weekend past-time! Not to mention filling up on nostalgia by picking through their 80s candy selection!
Sadly Cheapies is closing as of early 2020…so I took some inspiration from their storefront tiles to create these skeins!
Hamilton Hues are my colourways inspired by Hamilton, Ontario…in this case an awesome store that stood on King St for decades.
80% superwash merino 20% nylon
115g/420 yards per skein
NOTES RE HAND-DYED YARNS:
Be aware that colors may appear differently on different computer monitors, but every effort has been made to portray them as accurately as possible.
All of my yarns are hand dyed and, as much as I attempt to match, every batch is one-of-a-kind. Be sure to order what you need as matching future batches are not guaranteed.
When using hand-dyed yarns in a project that requires more than one skein, it is strongly recommended to alternate skeins every other row of knitting to even out any differences.
Lastly, as with any hand dyed yarn, please expect minor imperfections and some variation from skein to skein (even within the same batch), as each skein is individually hand painted.
If you live within the Hamilton (GTA) or you will be passing through and want to arrange a pickup, choose the “local pickup” option and message me to arrange a time and place.
