This listing is for cranked yarn tubes. You as the customer will purchase spots according to the number of skeins you want cranked into tubes and then send me the yarn. I do not supply the yarn.
When the order is completed, you will receive an email with in 24 hours to the address you provided advising you where to send the yarn and technical details. Please be sure to fully read this email before sending yarn :)
Once the yarn is received, I will send you an email advising that I have the yarn. Counting from the day after the yarn is received, they will be returned to you with in 15 business days (Monday to Friday, minus US holiday). If i cannot make this deadline due to influx of orders or life circumstances, I will notify you.
One Long Tube--> This means that each skein that is sent will be cranked into its own individual tube save for the exception noted below. Each tube will have waste yarn at the start and end of the tube to prevent unravelling of the main yarn. The tag shipped with the yarn will be returned and placed in its own bag with the cranked tube.
These are unfinished sock tubes. By purchasing, it will be up to the customer to add cuffs, heels, and toes to make them into socks. If you need help separating the tubes, please refer to my downloadable guide HERE.
EXCEPTION: If you send 2 balls of 50 gram Felici yarn (or the like), that counts as one skein (total 100 grams). I can do "one long tube" cranked as such --> waste yarn, 1st 50 gram ball, 15-ish rows waste yarn, 2nd 50 gram ball, waste yarn <--. So in the end the two balls are separate but in one long tube. In this option, they will be cranked as is, no matching. :)
What to send:
*FINGERING weight yarn only. Please don't send lace, sport, worsted or Aran. Please also don't send singles. Due to the inconsistencies in yarn, this yarn is not the best for cranking. ----> If any other weight is sent, I will not crank those skeins and will return them to you with a refund for the cranking service. The cylinders I have really aren't meant for thicker yarns. To get the gauge people want for socks, they are incredibly stiff or really wide, so I've decided to not allow them anymore.
*100 gram skeins per spot ordered --- Yarn that comes in 150 gram skeins will only have 100 grams cranked and the remaining 50 grams will be sent back in a cake. If you send 2 skeins that are each 150, please purchase 3 spots and all 300 grams will be cranked. :)
NEW: I used to try to match gauge but with so many different types of yarn, this is not always possible.
My sock machine can knit most fingering weight yarns at 8.5 to 9 stitches per inch. Using the 64 stitch this will be approximately 7.11" circumference and with a 72 stitch count, about 8" circumference. Please choose the appropriate option for the size you will need. IF the yarn is a heavy fingering weight, this measurement may go up.

About Freckled Whimsy
Hello Friends! My name is Karrie Winters (owner) and I have been dying self striping yarn for over 5 years now. I love working with color and putting unexpected colors together to make beautiful self striping yarn. I also love doing club color ways. It pushes me to create several new palettes each month so it keeps my creativity fresh! Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you've found something special. :)
