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 33.00

This listing is for the exact skein of yarn in the photos. It is a lovely single-ply handspun sport weight (113grams/342yards).

This yarn will stripe gently as you knit through repeats of the colours.

I bought the roving from GreenwoodFiberworks here at Etsy. The roving was called Dragon Scales. I loved the name, so I decided to keep it.

I spun it up into this light sport weight yarn that is perfect for lacework or other fine-weight knitting. I don't recommend a single ply yarn for socks as it is not as well-wearing as a plied yarn, but you can knit what you like with it, of course.

Dragon Scales: Beautiful soft BFL wool with a nice sheen in greens, oranges, purples, reds. Yarn has a slightly heathered look. I've washed the yarn to set the spin.

100% Blue Face Leicester
Sport Weight: 24-28 stitches = 4" on 3.0-3.5 mm needles (or larger for lace)

This yarn WILL felt. Hand wash gently in cool water; lay flat to dry.

I hand-dye/spin 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 complete 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.
