This is a set of Not-Quite-Orphan skeins!
Here we offer skeins of high-quality yarn that we have in limited quantities. Right now we have a decent amount of Nordlys so I am calling them not-quite-orphans. You could get a good yardage for a project.
That is now, however, These yarns have been discontinued so once they are gone, that is it.
They are being offered at a superb price (at least 15% off) while supplies last.
A great opportunity to expand your yarn horizons, so to speak....
Nordlys is a fingering weight yarn, each skein having 100 grams (3.5 ounces) and 385 yards (350 meters) . Perfect for this design. It is 75% superwash wool and 25% nylon, and has a very soft and delightful hand.
If you would like an extra skein for "insurance," just contact us and we'll set it up with you.
We are listing three lovely colorways on this web page.
The colorways do not have names, just numbers. I will attempt to describe them here:
1. This is color #940 and I am going to name it Creamsicle. Do you remember the ice-cream-and-sherbert pops form childhood that combined orange sherbert with vanilla ice cream? Well this is not quite that but it reminds me of it.
Ranging from a soft pale apricot into peach and then a richer red-orange, it finishes off with a soft brown and then around to the beginning. Delicious!
2. Color #970, what we've been calling our Purples, this combines colors in the overall purple family, from rose to fuchsia to blue to purple and back to rose again. (Ooops! As of 8/25, there is only one of these left so I guess this particular colorway really is an Orphan Skein....)
3. Color #923, let's call Cloudy Skies -- the look of a summer sky with puffy cumulus floating across it. The colors run from cream into light blues gradually deepening in tone.
