These are Not-Quite-Orphan Skeins.
Our Orphan Yarns 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.
These we're not calling 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.
This is an interesting fingering weight wool blend from Louisa Harding called Luci. Of 41% Virgin Wool, 41% Acrylic, 18% Viscose, each pre-wound ball has 349 yards/ 100g.
It is categorized by KFI as fingering/ sock weight (6.75-8 sts = 1").
The yarn is plied and the colorways have lovely semi-long color runs, long enough to create great sections of color. You can get an idea of the look it creates by perusing these pattern pages.
This colorway is called Borealis, and is a blend of varying depths of brown with some dark reds and greys as well.
