I have a passion for peonies. I suppose that I inherited that love from my mother. In her memory, my garden has many herbaceous and tree peonies in just about all the basic colors and forms that are available. There are the over-exuberant hussies with more petals than one can count. There are also demure species with a small centers and just a few scented petals. And there are those with powder puff bosses and a beautiful ring of petals. This yarn reminds me of the bright pink peonies with golden yellow centers.

There are two yarns of the same color, but slightly different weights. This one (Pink Peonies) is 2115 yards per pound, the other (Pink Peonies, Too) is 1685 yards per pound. They can work together with some judicious planning, but do not buy them thinking they are identical yarns.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 3.1 oz., spun at an average of 2115 ypp (yards per pound), a fingering weight. These 410 yards wrap at approximately 19-22.

Falkland is a strong, soft fiber from the Falkland Islands in the Southern Atlantic. It is a 24 to 28 micron fiber with approximately a 5-inch staple. This is a very white wool that dyes beautifully and spins very nicely, but is not a specific breed, but rather grown to a specification and blended. There are Corriedale, Polwarth, Dohne Merino and other breeds on the island. Since there are no sheep diseases on the islands, the animals are never dipped so there are not any organo-phosphate or pyrothroid sheep dip residues on the wool.

See my Store Policy FAQs section for further knitting gauge suggestions for various yard weights and care instructions for different fibers.

My skeins are wound on a full 2-yard niddy-noddy. If you don’t have a large swift, let me know. Spun in a smoke-free, pet-friendly home.
