A Silkworm Walks Into A Bar…

I’m not quite sure how the joke goes, but the end of the punch-line is something like          “…and the sheep had sex with it anyway!”. Well, I’m pretty sure that’s not where Merino Silk Lace comes from, or at least, I hope…

Four interesting facts about silk:

1) Up until World War 1, silk was used to produce bulletproof vests and bicycle tires.

2) In Muslim tradition, men are supposedly forbidden to wear silk.

3) It’s shiny.

4) Did I mention it’s shiny?

Full of Gleamy Goodness, Tuff as a Discount Steakhouse T-bone, and Super-Pretty like a Girl, our Merino Silk Lace is a 50% Merino/50% Silk blend and like totally 100% off the ShimmerScale! Go ahead, embrace your inner sparkle demon – You know you want to!!!

Email indigodragonfly.K AT gmail.com to place all orders.  A PayPal invoice will be mailed to you that includes airmail shipping (or surface mail if you’re in Ontario).  For further information, see the bottom of this post.

One Year Anniversary Quiz: Today’s Question!

How many of our current colourways names reference Muppets and/or Sesame Street Characters, and can you name them all?

To purchase any of the products, please send me an email at indigodragonfly.K AT gmail.com (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which yarn(s)/gear you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre/project bag secures it. I will send you a paypal invoice for the full amount plus shipping and ship the packages off within 3-5 days. Shipping charges to the US will start at $5.44 for surface mail and $7.70 for air mail. Canada Post doesn’t make shipping charges for Canadian or International packages easy, so I will send you a shipping quote for your order for your approval.

Best attempts are made to photograph colours accurately, however colours do differ from monitor to monitor (I’ve checked). I’ve also described the colours…and hope that helps. Custom orders (including dyeing or overdyeing your own fibre or yarn) are always welcomed! Just email me with what you have in mind.

  1. So I’m guessing 8:
    Self-Elmolation (Elmo)
    One! One Purple Skein! Aa-Aa-Aa! (the count)
    Me want eat drums (Animal)
    That’s not Kermit; Kermit is dead!
    This is your Brain on Cookies (lightly toasted & well done) (Cookie Monster?)
    Groverkill (Grover)
    Ernieshirt (Ernie)

  2. In the interests of full disclosure, I totally checked:
    Self-Elmolation
    One! One Purple Skein! Aa-Aa-Aa!
    Me Want Eat Drums!
    That’s not Kermit; Kermit is Dead
    Groverkill
    Ernie Shirt

    So I got 6.

    This is Your Brain on Cookies also struck me as a possibility, but it’s not really Cookie Monster coloured, so I didn’t count it.

  3. Self-Elmolation
    One! One Purple Skein! Aa-Aa-Aa!
    Me Want Eat Drums!
    That’s Not Kermit; Kermit Is Dead!
    Groverkill
    One Dragonfly Ripple For The Frog
    Ernie Shirt
    This is Your Brain on Cookies

  4. I am in the eight group too!

    Self-Elmolation
    One! One Purple Skein! Aa-Aa-Aa!
    Me Want Eat Drums!
    That’s Not Kermit; Kermit Is Dead!
    Groverkill

    Ernie Shirt
    This is Your Brain on Cookies

  5. I say eight too.

    Self-Elmolation
    One! One Purple Skein! Aa-Aa-Aa!
    Me Want Eat Drums!
    That’s Not Kermit; Kermit Is Dead!
    Groverkill
    One Dragonfly Ripple For The Frog
    Ernie Shirt
    This is Your Brain on Cookies

    I think I need a skein of the merino/silk just trying to decide what color is difficult!

  6. I’m in the eight colourway acamp too…

    Self-Elmolation
