Swatched Cakes are skeins of yarn that were used only to produce a sample swatch of the colorway. In most cases, the swatch is cut away and the yarn is rewound into a cake (using a heavy-duty, professional ball winder and swift), leaving no more than a ten-gram shortage. The number of grams in the cake is listed in the photo. The price reflects the reduction in weight.
NOTE: A full skein is typically 100 grams. See yarn information within each listing for weight comparison.
