We name all our silk yarn bases after jackalopes from around the world. The Kreißl is a jackalope from the Bavarian region of Germany and is similar to the Wolpertinger. Whereas the Wolpertinger sports elk antlers, the Kreißl has smaller Bavarian Red Deer antlers. The Kreißl is known for its high-pitched call, much like the American Screech Owl. Like all jackalope species, the Kreißl is fond of good Bavarian schnapps created from the fruits and berries of its native region. The Kreißl’s feathers reflect the sunlight in spectacular displays during the mating season, hence their naming of our Sparkle Collection. The Brothers Grimm wrote about the Kreißl in their collected works from 1753.
