OUT WITH THE OLD IN WITH THE NEW SALE: I'm putting a bunch of older stock on 20% off to clear room for a bunch of new things I have to list. Sale items are being posted starting Friday Sept 28 and should all be installed at new prices in my Discount/Sale Yarn section by Sat Sept 29.

DISCOUNT: Was 24.00

This listing is for one 100gram/252yard skein of the yarn shown in the photos.

Oil Slick (Batch-B): Lovely shimmering oil slick colorway of browns, greens, aqua, lilac, purple, sky, moss. This one goes very well with Oil Slick (Batch-A) and Gator Hunting.

Yarn base is really lovely: It is a single spun (yes, one fat ply) of super soft and lux baby alpaca, wool, and silk. Nice on the hands, and I bet it knits up like Malabrigo, but with silk...and alpaca.

This yarn is NOT superwash.

40% Baby Alpaca/40% Wool/20% silk
100 grams/252 yards
22stitches=4" on 4.0mm needles
6st=1 inch on 3.25mm needles for socks

Hand wash gently in cool or lukewarm water. Lay flat to dry.

I hand-dye all my yarns one at a time, with care and attention to detail. I live in a non-smoking, dog/cat-free home.

Packages ship within three business days of receipt of payment. Please read my profile box for details on my policies.

I ship by Airmail to the US and Canada. Most packages arrive in one to two weeks.

**International/Overseas Buyers Only: Shipping rates listed are for Airmail. Surface/Ground takes two to three months, but Airmail typically takes one to three weeks. If you prefer the cheaper method of shipping and don't mind a really long wait, I can refund you the difference between Airmail and surface and ship it that way instead. Surface rates are usually the same as those listed to the US.
