Here's a really interesting Aran/heavy worsted weight yarn! It's usually billed as a "tweed," but it's actually a "twist." Two different types of Merino take up dye at different rates, making a "barber pole" effect. Varying shades of orange, brown, and black make up this colorway, which I have named "Admiral of the Fire."

Each 3.5 oz (100 g) skein is guaranteed to contain AT LEAST 170 yards (1555 m).

It is soft and lovely and would make great hats, headbands, or mittens.

Two full skeins will make a long, thick, warm scarf if you cast on 25 to 33 stitches.

The yarn is only part superwash and will felt, so handwashing in lukewarm water with minimal agitation, and laying your garment flat to dry, is recommended.

PLEASE NOTE: I do my utmost best to take pictures that represent the color of my items accurately, but each monitor is different. What you are purchasing may look quite different on your monitor from what it does on mine.

All items come from a non-smoking home.

No charge for shipping for US Customers! But for further information about methods used, etc., please see my policy page.


I am new to international shipping, therefore I am charging a flat shipping rate of US $10.00 for the first item, plus US $0.25 per each additional item. I realize this seems high, however, if your actual shipping cost is LESS than the amount paid, I will refund the difference via Pay Pal. It is my policy NOT to gouge on shipping costs for anyone, so please buy with confidence!

Thanks for looking!
