What are Orphan Skeins?
Basically they are any high-quality yarns leftover from kits and the like, of which we only have a few. And so they are discounted, at least 15%, in the hopes that they will find a new home.
I just found a new cache of single skeins of worsted weight yarns that we only have a few of. So we are putting up a few new sets of Orphan Skeins.
This yarn is from The Fibre Co, and is called Terra. This is 40% baby alpaca/ 40% wool/ 20% silk and it feels delicious.
These are an earlier put-up with only 98 yards/ 50g skein. The suggested gauge is 18 - 20sts to 4" on size 8 - 9 US Needles.
We have two colorways right now:
1. Woad Light is a lovely sky blue with lilac slubs.
2. African Violet is a matching lilac with some darker violet slubs.
