Only one ball of yarn left of these -- one Fall Herbs (Sausalito). 

****

We just put together another set to offer in our Orphan Skeins series.  (Orphan Skeins are high-quality skeins of yarn we have left over from kits, usually only one or two of each -- and presented here at a great discount, at least 15%.)

******************************

These are all from Crystal Palace, a company that is no longer manufacturing yarn.  So these are all discontinued and once they are gone -- poof! -- they are truly gone.

Mini Mochi is 80% merino wool/ 20% nyulon, with 195 yards/ 50g ball.  Each colorway has looooooong color runs, that blend one into the next.  It is a single ply yarn and even though it is spun from superwash Australian Merino it still can felt if rubbed against itself in a loose or lace knit.

Sausilito is a cousin of Mini Mochi, with the same fiber content and a yardage of 198 yards/50g.  This is plied, again with long color runs which will give a slight tweedy effect as colors meet and diverge.  It knits up very soft. 

*****
