Fingering Weight
Handwash cold, dry flat.

Flicker Colorway – The flickers around our house are flashy birds, but I was particularly taken by the (unflashy) soft grays and browns of the females' heads. I want a sweater in exactly that color. Please see my website for the images that inspired this colorway: http://www.ravenridgefiber.com/.

This yarn was handpainted in small batches. Minor variations between and within dyelots are part of its charm. The yarn is perfect for livening up the simplest stitch pattern (stockinette, garter) or adding depth and richness to more complex designs. On my screen, the colors in the image closely match the colors in the fiber, but your screen may be different.

The yarn was dyed and stored in a smoke-free pet-friendly home.

Average review
This is a gorgeous soft yarn with subtle coloring. I am looking forward to knitting with it. Seller is customer friendly and, as requested, held off sending my package until I was back from a trip. Thank you!
