Ordering Scale Mail Pouches

Here's a helpful guide to all the options when you're custom ordering scale mail pouches :D
All images can be clicked to see in full screen for much better detail!

Here are the things you'll need to consider in a suitable order:
1. Pouch Size
2. Scale Colour and Pattern
3. Yarn Colour

Each of these is gone through in detail here, so you know exactly what you're getting :) but don't forget that I always e-mail you about what I've interpreted for your order and how I'll be doing it, so you can correct me at any time! Orders do not have to stick to the original ordered description, as long as you reply to me with any changes when I ask ^_^
Got a request that's not covered here, like a custom size pouch? Ask me about your ideas for a more personalised order!

1. Pouch Size
Size (approx opening diameter)
Postage cost
Small (1.5 inches)


[image not yet available :( ]
Medium (2.5 inches)


Large (4 inches)



Since the images might not be exactly clear, here's an idea what they fit;
Small Pouch can hold one set of 7 RPG dice
Medium Pouch can hold 2-3 sets of RPG dice
Large Pouch can hold way more dice than I've ever found at one time to test

2. Scale Colour and Pattern
This is the most exciting part! There are a whole bunch
of colour options as you can seeI can make orders
that only require scales I already have quicker!
If you want a rush order please contact to see what my
current stock is - I try to have a good amount of every
colour, but it fluctuates a lot!
Available: RedOrangeGoldGreenBluePurple,
PinkSilvery-gold, Brushed Aluminium,
Mirror Aluminium, Black, Bronze

In addition to plain colours of those just mentioned you can choose to have several colours in a pattern, and all patterns can be adapted for any size of gloves :) any requests are welcome, so here are a few examples to help you imagine what your pattern might look like!
Flame - blue, gold, silver                         Zigzag - green/purpleii
         Flame - red, orange, black          Random rainbow - every colour scale
         Chevron; black, red                      Solid colour - brushed silver
If you would like to be sent a blank scale pattern chart to colour yourself for me to follow directly, just ask!

3. Yarn Colour
Now you know what colour scales you want it should be easy to decide which base colour matches best with your choices.
I have several variegated yarns (with subtle or contrasting variations in colour throughout) and one solid colour;
Solid: Black, White (both contain wool)
One-tone Variegated: Gray, Sky Blue*Green
Multi-tone Variegated: Purple/Black,  Purple/Blue/Turquoise/Green
All coloured yarns are 100% synthetic and suitable for people with wool allergies!
For an additional £1.50 I can get in any of thother colours in the MC Chunky range, ask about setting up a custom order on Etsy (currently not available anywhere else)
