These are Not-Quite-Orphan Skeins.
Yes, they are high-quality yarns that we have a limited quantity of. And with these, we cannot get any more -- once they are gone, poof! Gone.
We're not calling them exactly Orphans because as of right now we have a decent amount in stock.
So if you have a great idea for these, you will be able to get a goodly amount of yardage at a great price.
They are discounted significantly as we would like them to find a good home.
From Katia, Darling Rainbow has the same yardage and fiber composition as their better known Darling: 208 yards (190 meters) to each 50 gram ball. It is made of 60% of virgin wool and 40% polymide.
What is different about the Darling Rainbow is that the color runs are a bit shorter.
This colorway we got in doesn't have a name -- it is colorway #304 --- but it mirrors the colors you can see in the Darling #204, with a few additional hues that works very well with the rest. I could see using both in the same project for a striking combo of tones.
Again I'd call this a Valentine colorway --- let's call it Valentine Two. I see pink, rose, red, magenta, violet and even some black.
Really quite a lovely combination.
