Item details

**If you'd like a different quantity or base yarn than shown here, please convo me. I can customize nearly any of my colorways.

This listing is for one 100g/463yd skein of the red yarn as shown in photos and described below. This listing is for THIS EXACT BATCH (there are four available).

The library at Downton: Ever watch Downton Abbey? The library is filled with these colours: warm reds, wine reds, golden yellows, and library book greens, blues, purples, neutrals, browns...very pretty!

Base yarn is a soft and lovely blend of superwash merino and nylon to give strength and durability. This is a round 4-ply yarn similar to Opal or Trekking or other round sock yarns. Perfect for socks, lacework, baby items, and anything you want to wear next to your skin.

75% Superwash Merino/25% Nylon
7-9st=1" on US size 0-2 needles

Hand or machine wash gentle; lay flat (recommended) or tumble dry on low.

I hand-dye all my yarns one at a time, with care and attention to detail. I live in a non-smoking, dog/cat-free home.

Packages ship within three business days of receipt of payment. Please read my profile box for details on my policies.

I ship by Airmail to the US and Canada. Packages typically arrive in one to two weeks, depending on the time of year and mail service.

**International/Overseas Buyers Only: Shipping rates listed are for Airmail. Surface/Ground takes two to three months, but Airmail typically takes one to three weeks. If you prefer the cheaper method of shipping and don't mind a really long wait, I can refund you the difference between Airmail and surface and ship it that way instead. Surface rates are usually the same as those listed to the US.

Average review
The colors in this are so rich and lovely. I must wait to knit it until I have my knitting obligations met, so it is my reward for myself. In the meantime, I will just get it out and squish it and dream.

I ship within three business days of receipt of payment. I accept custom/special orders with about a week of turnaround time.

I am happy to combine shipping in order to get you the best deal.

***Shipping Rates/Charges***

I use the cheapest available shipping rate (Surface/Ground) for all packages going to Canada and the US. Your shipping includes postage and packaging. Most packages arrive in one to two weeks. If your package has not arrived in three weeks, I definitely want to know about it. I can refund or replace your order if it has not arrived within six weeks.

Yes, it does cost more to ship from Canada to Canada, than it does to ship from Canada to the US. Sad but true.

International/Overseas Destinations:

I used to charge surface/ground internationally, but I was finding my packages took two to three months to arrive, especially to Australia and the UK.

I have now changed all my International shipping rates to cover Airmail postage to all non Canada/US destinations. Packages arrive in one to three weeks.

If you prefer a cheaper method of shipping and don't mind a really long wait, I can refund you the difference between Airmail and surface and ship it that way instead.


I accept payment by Paypal. It is possible to pay by major credit card through Paypal, without having a Paypal account. If you need help figuring this out, please feel free to convo me.

Returns & exchanges

I do not have a standard return policy, but I am committed to keeping my clients happy. I like to deal with each situation individually. Please do contact me if you have any problems or disappointments with your order.

**If you do plan to return your yarn or any other product, I would like to know as soon as possible. Items, especially yarn, must be in their original condition, and buyer pays return shipping.
