  1. Does this take an entire skein of flutterby or could you get 2 cows out of it?

    1. So it depends... If you want to make two cows you will have to look at how much yarn is provided

  2. Depending on your tension, you could probably get 2 cows out of 1 skein. I use about half a skein per cow.
