“Truly songs and tales fall utterly short of the reality, O Smaug the Chiefest and greatest of Calamities.” -J.R.R. Tolkien
"Airborn fire-breather, teeth like razors, claws like meat-hooks, extremely fond of precious metals–
Yes, I know what a dragon is."
-The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey
This colorway is inspired by my favorite childhood book, "The Hobbit." Old Smaug, red and orange and gold, coiled on top of his treasure heap.
This is a hand spun, hand dyed yarn. It started out as white, fluffy BFL roving which I hand painted with professional quality procion dyes, then spun into 117 yards of chain plyed, self stripping awesome. This yarn is a work of art!
The nature of hand spun yarn is slight imperfection. This is not a commercial product, it's just me and my spinning wheel behind this computer screen. My studio is pet free and smoke free.
I do my best to keep shipping costs down. I like to reuse shipping materials when possible. I use USPS as my shipper of choice, and usually use first class shipping, unless a flat rate box is the cheaper option. Shipping prices reflect the postage, the cost of materials, and my time.
No personal checks or payment via the mail. Payment will be made in full before orders are shipped on ready to ship items. In the case of custom orders, payment will be made in full before I begin work on the order.
