Full skeins are presented in up to 60″ / 152 cm twisted hanks, or center pull cakes – as you wish. Please select your preference from the boxed choices in the order area above, and we’ll be happy to send that to you. It’s also presented in quarter and mini skeins.

If your project calls for more than we have in stock, please write to us. We would be glad to dye some more especially for you.

Wherever you are in the world, you pay shipping only on the first skein; additional skeins and bobbins ship free.

If you use Ravelry, we’re Dave (Dave-B) and son Will (BrWhatsit), and we invite you to check out our Rav group. It’s called Meadowcroft Dyeworks. Also for fellow Ravelers; if you display your stash there, and you buy some of our yarns, you’re welcome to use any of our photos if you wish.


From a monitor that’s calibrated monthly, to quality photo lighting & camera equipment, and the best editing practices we know of, we put a lot of effort & time into reproducing the color of our yarns accurately in these photographs. We know, though, that monitors can vary, and you may not see the color with the accuracy we’re aiming. That’s part why we make returns easy.


We recommend hand washing in cool water with mild soap and laying flat to dry. You may also machine wash on the gentle cycle, but the life of the garment may be reduced. Please do not use a mechanical dryer.

Smoke free, dog friendly home.

This is also a good hat for using up small amounts of leftover yarns from which you’ve made other things. It calls for 7 vivid colors; the main color requires less than 75 yards while the other six require about 12- 15 yards of each. Our kits include plenty of extra of each color so that you can distribute the colors as you prefer.

These yarns are spun in 4 plies from incredibly fine, luxuriously soft 100% superwash merino. In worsted weight, gauge is 21 sts & 25 rows per 4″ / 10 cm using US #8 needles. You’ll need a 16″ / 40cm pair of US US #7 / 4.5mm circular needles, a pair of 16″ / 40cm #8 / 5.0mm circular needles, and a set of #8 / 5.0 dpns, or simply use long #7 & #8 circs with the magic loop technique. Yarns are beautifully presented as small, twisted hanks accompanied by a professionally printed cover page with a full color image of a completed hat, an insert with the names and descriptions of the included yarns, and packed in a heavy, recloseable poly bag.

This knits up fast, and it has no long patterns to remember. Owing to the elasticity of wool, and the vibrancy and ultimate softness of Meadowcroft yarns, this will be a favorite hat of whomever is lucky enough to be its recipient.

This stylish, colorful, fun-loving hat is currently available in several colorways with more coming. Your kit includes a little more of each color than you’ll actually need, about 130 grams / 280 yards of soft, soft, soft, brilliantly colored yarns.


Returns are simple.

  • You may return your purchase to us within 30 days of receipt for any reason.

  • If we are at fault, we pay shipping both ways.

  • It must be in the same condition in which you received it.

  • We would just request that you please write to us first.
