Yarn Trek 2: The Skein Of Khan

“Once a guy starts wearing silk pajamas it’s hard to get up early.” – Eddie Arcaro

“Notice that the stiffest tree is most easily cracked, while the bamboo or willow survives by bending with the wind.” – Bruce Lee

“Smiles, everyone… smiles!” – Mr. Roarke, Fantasy Island

Okay, so the last quote wasn’t about merino, but Ricardo Montalban’s (Mr. Roarke) real name is Ricardo Gonzalo Pedro Montalbán y Merino, so close enough…

Anyhoo, here’s this week’s newbies: A smashing Sock blend of 60% Merino, 15% Silk and 15% Bamboo, jus’ itchin’ to be knitted! Each skein is 396 yds, 100g, takes US 0 – 2 needles, and is a paltry $25!

A Wicked Extraordinary Hybrid – definitely not Da Plain! Da Plain!

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.
