Orient Express – offered on multiple yarn bases
Hand dyed in deep and very slightly orange leaning reds.
This colorway is offered on multiple bases. Shown left to right are Dragon Sock, Pixie, Bugga, Faerie, and Traveller.
Dragon Sock is a 2-ply, 100% superwash merino and very soft and springy with a nice, tight twist. Perfect for socks, mitts, scarves, and, of course, baby knitting! 390 yards per 4 oz skein with a gauge of 7-8 sts/inch on US 3-5 needles.
Pixie is a delightfully soft fingering weight yarn. This single-ply yarn has a silky sheen and takes color beautifully. Approx. 430 yards in a 4 oz skein of 100% superwash merino yarn that is a pleasure to knit and wear. Perfect for cowls, shawls, and hats. Gauge is 5-7 sts/inch on US 3-5 needles.
Bugga is as soft as kittens and knits up like a dream. Each approx. 4-oz/113-gm skein contains 364 yards of richly dyed sport-weight joy. Fiber content is 70% superwash merino, 20% cashmere, and 10% nylon for strength and durability. Gauge is 5.5-6.5 sts/inch on US 3-5 needles.
Faerie is a super fluffy and silky soft blend of 70% ultrafine kid mohair and 30% mulberry silk. The mohair takes up dye beautifully, resulting in vivid colors, and the silk gives it a lovely sheen. This lush lace weight yarn contains approximately 450 yards per 1.75 oz skein. Use big needles to produce a lofty fabric, and hold double with another of our yarns to create texture. Gauge is 8 sts/inch on US 3 needles.
This 100% superwash merino is so soft and takes up color like crazy! 280 yards in a 4 oz skein. Great for any pattern calling for a DK or light worsted weight. Gauge is 5-6 sts/inch on US 5-7 needles. Perfect for sweaters, kids cloths, hats, mittens, blankets.
Please note we have an approximately 2 week delay for Traveller due to shipping delays caused by the current lockdown. Turnaround time for our other bases is estimated to be 3-7 days.
All of our skeins are unique; we recommend you alternate skeins for best results.
