Shadowlands is the story of the late-in-life relationship between the British writer C.S. Lewis, and an American fa, Joy Gresham. It is based on Lewis's own memoir, A Grief Observed, which was adapted first as a television film, then a stage play, then a feature film. Lewis, who had never married, was surprised to find himself in love with Gresham. They were married, but she fell ill and died four years later. His grief at her loss overturned his ideas about how to deal with suffering. This yarn is a shadowy heather of green, brown, copper, gold, magenta and maroon, all tightly blended.

This listing is for one 2-ply skein, weighing 4.2 oz., spun at an average of 1695 ypp (yards per pound), a fingering weight. These 445 yards wrap at approximately 14-17.

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.
