    Wool Yarn de-stashing.

    Advertisements
    I love to dye it but don't know how to knit.
    All have been stored in a skein, not a cake.
    I can wind them into a center pull cake for you if you want before shipping.


    All dyed by me, with professional dyes.

    100% merino wool. 100 grams (3-1/2 ounces) 223 yards. 4''=20 stitches on size 7 needles. Suggested crochet hook: 7.

    oh these are gorgeous!!! Let me check and see what I could use

    Can you do any skeins in the Air Force ABU colors? DH has been hinting he'd like to have an afghan to take with him on his upcoming deployment, plus it would match my son's room!

    I'd also be interested in some in cream, maroon, and navy (old americana) if you can do that.

    How many skeins of the brown/blue do you have, and appx how many yards of yarn in one skein?

    I only have one skein of each and I'm not dying right now because of pregnancy...
    The yardage is 223 for the worsted weight and 440 for the sock yarn

    oh I completely understand that! I'd love to get some of these from you, so let me think a bit on what I could use.

    Do you plan to start dyeing again after baby is born?
    Also, have you ever tried your hand at fabric? I've been looking for some pretty hand-dyes to use in a batik-style quilt.

    Yeah I'll be back to dying after the babies are here
    I just can't be on my feet that long right now
    I've done fabric for other quilters! Tie dye and LWI dying as well... cotton- woven and knit- and flannels. Basically anything I can do on a tee I can do on fabric.

    I can't view it at work

    Please let me know though, when you are back up and running. Would you mind if I pass your link on to my quilting friends? Many of them are knitters too. Maybe I can send some business your way.

    Sure! I am in the process of switching servers while I'm on my pregnancy hiatus... my blog though is http://applepiebaby.wordpress.com/ and I'll announce there when my site is back up and running
