“Love the Skin You’re In”
From Crafty is Cool, a special limited edition set of AmiguruMe SkinTone yarns, hand dyed by Terra Mitchell of Mitchell’s Creations, in 9 realistic skin tones.
About the yarn: Each ball of yarn is 50g/109yd and is hand-dyed 100% superwash merino wool. It is worsted weight <4>. Because of the hand-dyed and natural fiber content, there may be variations in color, knots, or other minor variations. I recommend a hook size of D3.0mm/3.25mm for amigurumi.
There are 9 colors of yarn. Yarn colors are named for corresponding shades of the famously inclusive Fenty Beauty foundation.
100 - Very fair skin with neutral undertones
120 - Fair skin with neutral undertones
145 - Light skin with warm olive undertones
160 - Light skin with cool peach undertones
240 - Medium skin with warm yellow undertones
260 - Medium skin with neutral undertones
380 - Tan to Deep skin with cool undertones
445 - Deep skin with warm olive undertones
460 - Deep skin with cool red undertones
