Capri has been famous as a resort island since Roman times. There is evidence of Neolithic occupation of the island, and it was later colonized by Greek traders. The emperor Tiberius lived there full-time for the last ten years of his reign. In more recent times, celebrities have been attracted there from all over the world. This roving is the brilliant blue of Capri's waters, with a touch of green.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 4.0 oz., spun at an average of 1600 ypp (yards per pound), a fine sport weight. These 400 yards wrap at approximately 15-18.

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, Done 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 organ-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.
