We have a lot of this yarn. It is a type of yarn we are not familiar with and we really haven’t found anything on the net that we would be comfortable calling an equivalent. The name brand of this yarn is Paragon and has been known to be one of the best quality yarns in the business. It is a 3 ply Persian yarn, 100% wool. Each package contains 8.8 yards, close to what I found to be called a hank. It is made in England by Peri-L. It may be for use in crewel embroidery. We have taken great care with our pictures to give you the most accurate representation of each color that we can. We have no color names, just #’s. We understand the challenge of working with a variety of monitors that display every color differently. Therefore we’ve also assigned fitting color names to paint a more accurate description of each yarn. Although the photo appears pink, this yarn is violet or purple in color. Please feel free to e-mail us if you have any questions.
