I am trying to decide whether to offer the new almost solid yarns in 100g skeins or in 50g skeins.
Both bonny and toddy have 420m/100g.
In the UK, a 100g skein is the conventional size and moving away from this is unusual.
100g means you have the flexibility to just knit away and it preserves any leftovers as a single length of yarn rather than as two small balls. It might be less convenient for anyone knitting larger garments though, leaving more ends to weave in.
50g skeins is more conventional in the US for some dyers like Koigu, but not for others such as STR.
It would give a ready divided yarn for those who like to knit two socks at once, and it means colourwork fans don't need to invest in more than they need. Offering yarn in 50g skeins means I will store them in pairs to give you two halves of one skein (if you need 100g) for the best colour matching.
In the past I have offered to do both and to divide skeins on request but this creates a delay because I can't prepare them in advance and have them ready to post.
So, I have put up a poll in the sidebar to your right (if you are reading this as an email or on feedburner please click here to go to the blog). It would be a great help if you would let me know your views.
Please add anything else you think would be helpful in the comments below.
There isn't an "I don't mind" option because I know that many of you would click that just because you are nice!
Thank you for helping with the research.
