How do I connect multiple skeins?

When you purchase more than 1 skein of the same color yarn, we will connect it for you! We know you want to start creating as soon as possible, so we are happy to make it as easy as possible. However, if you create a project with different colors or choose to purchase skeins at different times, you can simply sew the ends of two skeins together.
