This is a small lot of hand-dyed silk yarn. Each one is unique and one-of-a-kind.
We name all our yarn bases for Jackalopes from around the world. The Wolpertinger hails from Bavaria are the fiercest of all jackalope species. They are the royalty of jackalopes, sporting pheasant wings, elk antlers, and elongated canine teeth reminiscent of sabertoothed cats. They are the preferred mount of Elfin and Fairy folk. Wolpertingers are noble beasts when treated with the deference they deserve (woe to those who take them for granted, though, their teeth are sharp!). The best way to meet a Wolpertinger is to have a drink (or several) of Bavarian beer, sitting on the slope of your favorite Alpine meadow. Don't forget to offer them a drink, too.
Our Wolpertinger base is spun silk, created from the longest fibers remaining after the reeling process. The fibers are carded and spun together into a single, lustrous ply of Medium (4) weigh. Each 100g hank is varies between approximately 200m. The texture is very bright, silky, and lustrous.
This yarn is perfect for all-around projects depending on the gauge, including sweaters and outerwear, textured shawls, bags, and other projects.
