What are CakeQuarters?
If you know anything about quilting, you know what 'fatquarters' are, if not read on... A fatquarter is a square quarter yard of fabric, if you buy four fatquarters you receive one whole, not four separate squares.
CakeQuarters work on the same basis - if you buy one 'quarter' you receive one 25g cake, two 'quarters' you receive one 50g cake, three 'quarters' you will receive one 75g cake and if you buy four 'quarters', you receive one 100g cake (not four x 25g cakes) and so on.
How big is the biggest cake?
The cakes come in a maximum weight of 300g. For example, if you order 14 CakeQuarters, which is 350g, you will receive one x 300g cake and one x 50g cake. I hope this is clear for you. Click on this table for number of CakeQuarters to order for your yarn weight.
If you are making a top or sweater requiring 350g how nice would it be to only join in the yarn after 300g of knitting? Well, now you can find out.
Why does WildWestDye sell in CakeQuarters?
I love colour... as I'm sure all yarn dyers, and you do too. I love to knit and wear colourwork accessories and clothes and there are so many beautiful multi-colour designs. But, are you sometimes put off from knitting something as it uses so many partial skeins? Because I am, and the beautiful design stays in my 'wish list' but never come to fruition.
I have a considerable stash and when I look through it, there are so many partial balls of left overs. I know there are designs that have been specifically created to help us yarn-lovers with our left overs, (I'm currently making the Beekeepers Quilt with my left over sock yarn) However, I always wished I had the option of buying the actual quantity I needed, and this is where the idea of CakeQuarters came to life.
Not only do CakeQuarters make colourwork more affordable and less wasteful, but it also allows you to buy to a higher degree of accuracy the requirement you need for any project. When it comes to accessories; a cowl, wristwarmers, a hat, maybe you only need 75g, three CakeQuarters. So instead of buying a 100g skein, with WildWestDye you can buy 75g, three CakeQuarters that you need.
