Just in time for OctoBOOOOer! This limited edition run is a gorgeous blend of greens, blues, purples with a blend of rusty red which is all inspired by this beautiful medieval manuscript image of a 15th-century dragon. The hodge-podge of colors is reminiscent of Frankenstein being a hodge-podge creation.
As an added bonus you get a mini skein that is a blended twist of teal and blue which creates a lovely green variegated skein. It's perfect for using as the heel or toe of socks or cuffs on sweater sleeves.
Each package contains one large skein and one mini skein.
Franken-Dragon: Each large skein is 75% merino and 25% nylon. Superwash sock weight in 4 ply. 400m (437y)/100g.
Dragon Scale: Each mini skein is 75% merino and 25% nylon. Superwash sock weight in 4 ply. 80m (87y)/20g.
Description: The merino gives natural elasticity which is boosted with the nylon so you get great movement and stretch but it will bounce back wonderfully into shape. The merino fibres are not itchy or scratchy on the skin. The yarn is perfect for socks but can equally can be knitted into scarves, shawls, bags, granny squares, tops, or baby garments which will feel soft next to the skin due to the fine merino used. As this is superwash, you can wash your finished product in a washing machine. Recommended not to use water hotter than 30°C.
Manuscript image is from: Biblia veteris et novi testamenti (Grillinger-Bibel) 1428 Clm 15701 Folio 70v
