YGB couldn't be more excited than to announce that we are carrying Skein Tones by Lion Brand Yarn. This new addition is a product of the collaboration between Lion Brand and the Amigurumi Queen Anika Wilkerson from @my_kinda_thing!
"Skein Tones offers a modern neutral palette aiming to complement a wide spectrum of skin tones. The collection of colors is part of the Basic Stitch® Anti-Pilling family, a very versatile 100% acrylic CYC4. Makers who gravitate towards creating garments that will integrate into their wardrobes often turn to neutral colors, and many who choose colorwork projects need a neutral to balance the bolder hues. By having a 12-color palette of nuanced neutral options you no longer have to settle for an “almost” complement to your color selections." - Lion Brand
This yarn is a play on fiber and construction. The outside of the yarn is created in a tubular fashion using the soft viscose fiber. As the tube is created, soft cotton fiber is blown down the inside to spread the tube and add to the size of the finished yarn. This process makes the yarn appear bulky but it is in fact very light. The finished yarn is dyed deep rich shades in solid and print that highlights any and every stitch worked.

Scaha- the epitome of what makes a Trendsetter Yarn. One single skein comes with a enough yarn for a scarf and a hat... hence it's namesake Scaha! The chainette construction of this yarn keeps it lofty and light while giving you a generous 520 yards of fun and vibrant colors that transition from one to the next and one shade to another. Work your scarf until you reach a patch of undyed yarn that indicates the end of your scarf and the beginning of your hat.
This generous cake skein comes with a whopping 570 yards of thoughtful color and supple softness. Merino tops are spun into a DK weight and then dyed into short multi-color lengths that then transition to long lengths of shaded color before they transition back again. Each cake skein is identical to the next and allows the yarn to do the work for you.
