Here is general information about the scales
Anodized Aluminum dragon scales for jewelry, chain maille and knitting or crocheting. Scales in the small size which are 9/16 inch by 7/8 inch with a hole size of .22 inch. Scale count is approximate as the scales are bagged by weight. Thickness can vary slightly from .025 to .03 of an inch. You will sometimes find a rough edge on the scales, usually at the tip (seems to happen more often with the black ones, rare with the other colors).
10 Colors Available! See my other listings. Black are matte finish, the rest are bright and shiny. We do our best to accurately represent the colors, we include a dime to help with color matching to your monitor and for size.
Knit mitts shown as an example of how to use the scales. You are only purchasing the scales. Please see my other listings if you would like to purchase mitts. Color of scales in the mitts photograph are a more accurate representation of the actual color.
If using for knit gauntlets, most patterns require 2 bags for the fist sized mitts, 3 bags for the wrist length and 4 bags for the long length.
I am a professional knitter, fiber artist and pattern designer. I have finished dragon scale mitts for sale in a rainbow of colors. I also use the scales for jewelry and other crafts. I made my husband a quilted armored vest which is lots of fun at Sci-Fi, Renaissance and gaming events. Also fun for belly dancing and other costumes. Let your imagine go wild!
