How’s the Craic-Dragonfly BFL-Super Fine-Ready to Ship
Yardage: approx. 462 yd./422 m.
Gauge: 7-8 stitches per 1” on US size 1-3 needles
Enjoying our vacation in Ireland with friends, we were slightly shocked to be asked by our bartender if our crack was good! No, he wasn’t asking about drugs...in Ireland “craic” (pronounced like crack) means the party, fun, spirited entertainment. Needless to say, we had a good laugh over our misunderstanding and continued to find ways to work the phrase “how’s the craic” into conversation.
Inspired by a lovely mossy pool filled with pebbles and rocks at the Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland, this yarn is like a party in a skein! Vivid lime green flows into dark charcoal gray with flashes of caramel and a little bright white. Hand painted in short color runs to resist striping and minimize pooling, this lovely colorway is a little dose of Ireland on your needles or hook!
Dragonfly BFL is an incredible blend of 75% Superwash Blue-Faced Leister wool and 25% nylon, giving you plenty of strength. Perfect for socks, sweaters, and any item that sees a lot of wear and abrasion, the BFL wool keeps it soft and decadent enough for next to the skin wear. For best results machine wash in cold on the gentle setting or hand wash and lay flat to dry.
I use professional quality acid dyes to ensure vivid colors that will last. No two skeins are identical: if you need more than one skein for your project, be sure to alternate rows to ensure variegation. Please note that each skein is a unique work of art and may not exactly match the photos, but will be very close. I may reskein your yarn before shipping to avoid tangles if necessary.
