Josephine’s Banana Peel-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
She’s a sensation, decked out in long strings of pearls. With fashionably tight cropped hair, exotic eyes, and dark skin, she dances across the stage wearing nothing but her pearls and a skirt made of bananas. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any more titillating, the skirt drops to the floor...
Inspired by the fabulous, daring Josephine Baker, an African-American dancer who took Paris by storm with her exotic burlesque routines, this skein is full of irreverent, sunny humor! Generous speckles of saffron and lemon splash across a white background in a busy blend of color that is complex enough to stand on it’s own, or look stunning adding a pop of color to another skein.
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.
