Item details

Yarn, single Merino wool plied with glass and metal beads on rayon thread, hand spun, hand dyed, 185 yds., 16 wpi (not counting beads).

This is a one-off, one of a kind, get it before it goes away kind of item.

The name of the colorway, Manic Pixie Dream Girl, is in honor of those ladies who are so full of vivacious, creative energy that they can't help but inspire the rest of us to believe there's a little magic in the world. It is mostly lime green, with wisps of blue in the 100% Merino wool. A single strand of that is then plied with a shiny varigated blue rayon thread that has a lime green or turquoise glass bead every few inches. And there are also about two dozen silver star metal wire beads interspersed throughout. You really have to see it knit up to get the full effect (see swatch photo.) Please, someone make this into something beautiful and send me the pics when it's done!

A lot of loving care goes into my yarn. Each skein of yarn is spun by hand on a drop spindle (not a spinning wheel) and it took approximately 42 hours to spin the total of 3 skeins in this batch. And that's not counting the dying process.


FAQs

Yes, I can do custom orders. Please contact me to discuss details.

If you ordered a wool item, there should have been a paper enclosed that outlines care instructions. If you're missing that, the short version is hand wash, dry flat, and don't put the wool through much wringing or temperature shock. Be gentle! If not, your wool could turn to felt, shrink, stretch, or bring on the zombie sheep apocalypse. And nobody wants that to happen. For art, hang it up safe, dust it when it needs it, no cheesy fingerprints. A damp cloth in emergencies (it is acrylic), but try not to get to that point.

At this time, I am not able to offer a gift wrapping service with your order. I re-use packaging from shipments I've received whenever possible. Otherwise, your order will likely arrive in a manila envelope unless it is big enough to need a box. Please recycle if possible.

The nature of most of my wearable items is that one size fits most. Ex. women's gloves, adult knit hats, etc. Please contact me with concerns you might have about sizing or possible custom orders.
