This sock/fingering weight neon mini skein set is a trip down memory lane for me – back to school days, when I used my highlighters on special words I needed to remember for tests. My favourite highlighter colour was neon yellow. Wait, it still is!

There are 5 glorious mini skeins in this set: violet, orange, blue, fuchsia pink and yellow. All colours apart from blue are UV-reactive.

Each mini skein is at least 70 meters, some going up to 72 meters. I’ve chosen to measure, instead of weighing, to ensure more length accuracy – this way you can make sure you have enough for your particular project.

The total weight for this neon mini skein set is approximately 100 grams, the same as one full skein or yarn. You can pair this set with another full skein for extra yardage if your knitting or crochet project calls for it.

At the time of writing I only  dyed this neon mini skein set in this particular base, but I can dye it to order in another base I have available. Feel free to contact me to place a custom order.

About Demeter Sock

Demeter is a very squishy and sturdy superwash BFL base with bits of black and white tweed mixed in.

Demeter Sock is, as the name suggests, a 4-ply/fingering weight yarn. More precisely, I would describe it as more on the heavy fingering weight scale.

Colour disclaimer

Although I have done my best to ensure my photos accurately reflect the colours of this rainbow mini skein set, please note that your monitor settings might differ from mine.

Fibre Content

Superwash BFL and tweed


  • Keep yarn in a dry room away from direct sunlight. Airtight boxes are recommended. Don’t place anything heavy on top of the skein to avoid squishing it.
  • I recommend adding lavender sachets to the storage container for pest prevention.
  • Hand wash your finished product separately using wool-specific detergents, dry flat. Hand dyed fibres may bleed a little in the first couple of washes.
