PRAIRIE CROCUS - Sock Weight Yarn,
Mohair-Wool-Nylon Blend,
Mini-Skein Sets, 
Hand-Dyed, Gradient Colours.


A fantastic sock yarn!  This has all the beauty of mohair and wool, along with the added strength of nylon.  It has a slight halo and is likely to bloom a little after washing. 

These skeins were spun using the fleeces from our angora goats (adults). Their fleeces were blended with fine wool ( Charollais cross Dorset) for added memory to help your garments keep their shape and with nylon to add strength. 

We carefully chose these hand-dyed mini skeins, from lighter to darker colours, to match the different themes. 

What about knitting them into a lacy shawl or scarf with smooth colour transitions? These mini-skeins could be also used to add contrasts to any fingering-sock weight yarn (like our Prairie Crocus or Trillium yarns).

The possibilities are endless!

Details

  • Content: 60% Fine Adult Mohair, 20% Wool, 20% Nylon 
  • Ply: 2
  • Wraps Per Inch: 22
  • Set of five gorgeous mini skeins
  • Yardage of each mini-skein:  approx. 70 m (77 yds) per 20g (0.7 oz)

Please note: As of January 2018, there has been a change in this yarn.  Due to us having begun working with a new mill Prairie Crocus  has changed weight.  This is now the yardage you can expect in this lovely yarn, however, if you have worked with Prairie Crocus before please be very sure to check your gauge!

More about our dyeing process

We carefully hand dyed (kettle dye)  some of our skeins in small batches using professional acid dyes.  They were rinsed (until the water runs clear) and washed using Kookaburra Delicate ( a delicate wool wash with unique blend of Tea Tree Oil and Lavender Oil) . 

The colours are rich, vibrant and will be long lasting.

To minimize our environmental impact during the whole dyeing process, ( and when season permits it of course), we use water collected in our rain barrel instead of our well's water. 

Each skein is unique (even dyed together). Some skeins have more or less of each of the colours and some may be slightly uneven coloring due to the kettle dyeing process. This makes them special, one of a kind.

When working on a project that needs multiple skeins, please, purchase enough yarn from the same batch to complete your project, as difference may occur between dye lots.  We also recommend alternating those skeins to ensure an even blend of colours. 

Care Instructions:

  • Hand wash gently in cool water with a wool wash of your choice . Lay flat to dry


Note: We do our best to capture the true colours of our yarns. However, they may vary slightly depending on monitor/devices settings. We photograph all our yarns in natural light.
