This product is unavailable

Michelmas Fairy is a difficult color to dye. For two of our attempts, the ratio of mauve to silver was off and so we have some “mistakes”. These colors will not be dyed again.

The yarn is discounted but must be bought in the set.

We have two sets of Sweater Toad - 3 skeins in each One is a bit pinker than the other. We also have a set of 2 Sock Toad skeins in the slightly pinker color.

Like the petals of the michelmas daisy flower, this color is silver with just a hint of mauve.

Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.


This soft, squishy yarn is perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters or any project where you would use a Fingering weight.

Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.

Sweater quantities of yarn can be ordered - please message us for information.
