Think of Skein Coats as a solution for taming any yarn skein, ball or cake. They are lightweight, portable, reusable, they prevent tangles and keep your yarn clean and neat. It's fast, it's easy and it works. Just cover your yarn with a Skein Coat and throw it in your knitting bag. Your yarn always stays neat and clean no matter how many times you've pulled it out to knit. You can squish it in your bag for knitting on-the-go and best of all they don't break and aren't bulky.
