Anyone up for some big honkin’ skeins??

Well, goody goody for you, here’s some DK Polwarth Silk rarin’ to go!!

Coming in at a pretty sweet 750 yards and 250 g. each, these beauties are so big honkin’-worthy we refer to them as “pelts” rather than “skeins”. And although we don’t have any actual pictures of a Polwarth Sheep, this is pretty close:

Polwarth Sheep(ish) – Carnivore’s rendition

Okay, technically that’s a Wheaton Terrier, but if you close your eyes and imagine him without a haircut for five years, then you kinda get the picture (also, with this photo we don’t have to pay royalties to a photographer or worry about copyright infringement, but it did cost us a few steaks, but was well worth it…).

Anyway, where wuz I? Uh, oh yeah, the yarn… Pictures, anyone?

Email orders AT indigodragonfly.ca to place all orders.  Let us know: 1)  what you would like to purchase, 2) where you live (state/province/country), and 3) whether you would like us to wind your yarn into cakes (charge of $1 per skein with proceeds going to our Otis Houndation).  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.

To purchase any of the above yarn, please send me an email at orders AT indigodragonfly.ca (replace AT with “@”, no spaces) indicating which colours(s) you would like, where you live and whether you want it shipped surface or air mail. First email request for each yarn/fibre 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.
