SPRING SALE! April is my anniversary month here at Etsy, and I am coming up on my sixth anniversary. I like to have a little spring sale to celebrate and to pass the savings onto you. All Spring Sale yarns are in the Spring Sale Section (on the left of my home page).

This yarn was: 23.95

This listing is for one 100g/400yd skein of the yarn shown in the photos and described below. Photos show the yarn before and after I rewind it. Either way, it is the same yarn. The rewound skein (looks more variegated than the others) is a better representation of what the yarn will look like knitted. I dyed a batch of four skeins (photo-5)

Tropical Fish: Pale clear aquas and sea-greens with ochre-browns, moss, chartreuse green, purples, pinks, bright sky, teal. Very pretty!

*This is the same yarn type I have offered in Merino/Nylon, but it is BFL instead of Merino. BFL is a soft but sturdy yarn that has a bit of a sheen. Perfect for socks.

Base yarn is a soft superwash BFL (Blue Face Leicester) and nylon blend. It has a very firm 2-ply twist. Perfect for socks, lacework, baby items, and anything you want to wear next to your skin. BFL is slightly less soft than merino, but it is stronger and has a bit of a sheen. More rugged for socks.

80% Superwash BFL/20% Nylon
7-9st=1" on US size 0-2 needles

Hand or machine wash gentle; lay flat (recommended) or tumble dry on low.

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.
