"Captain of our fairy band,
Helena is here at hand;
And the youth, mistook by me,
Pleading for a lover's fee.
Shall we their fond pageant see?
Lord, what fools these mortals be!"

As mischievous and spirited as the impish sprite, Puck, from Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, this speckle yarn will enliven any project! A dusting of cheerful gold, willow-y light green, soft hints of violet, and a sprinkling of bright pink play across the generous yardage of this skein. With plenty of white space to balance the bright speckles, this yarn looks great knit up on it's own, or combined with a semi-solid tonal.

Banshee Fingering is a bouncy, springy 4 ply yarn perfect for all kinds of projects! The smooth, round texture makes it ideal for sweaters, shawls, and accessories, and it's easy care makes it great for baby items! This yarn is sure to become one of your favorites due to it's strong durability...the tight ply structure makes it strong enough for socks without the need for nylon! Unbelievably soft, this yarn is heavenly when worn next to your skin.

Superwash merino makes this yarn an easy care machine washable option. Make sure to use cold water and the gentle setting on your machine. Tumble dry low, or lay flat to dry. Always test your washing instructions on a swatch!

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.
