DRAGON TALE YARNS

This is a set of American-made yarns, dyed with fiber-reactive dyes to our own palette of coordinated colors. They are ideal for all forms of weaving, hand and machine knitting and crochet, and very reasonably priced.

New colors, November 2016:
Forest 54 and Teal 55.

There are two weights of smooth matt cotton, and five rayons: two smooth, a slub, a high-lustre twisted chenille and a bouclé. There are six rainbow colorways; the rest are solids.

The Dragon Tales are all put up on 8-ounce cones. The cottons are soft and richly mellow, becoming more so over time. The rayon colors are especially saturated and lustrous; finished pieces enjoy an especially elegant drape. They are machine-washable and dryable, except for the chenille (wash once to finish, then dry-clean).

All Dragon Tale Yarns are dyed with fiber-reactive dyes, but they are not always perfectly rinsed. With first wash, to avoid running, rinse well, and and move immediately to dryer.

These yarns are also available undyed, in natural white, on one-pound cones.

Choose from the list below to see prices, codes and colors for each of the eight types of Dragon Tale Yarns. Please remember that dye-lots vary; if an exact match matters, be sure to get enough the first time. The dye-lot number is marked inside each cone.

Each type of yarn has its own page:

** Chenille is made from cross fibers secured in the twists of the plied core yarn, very much like a pipe cleaner. * Nylon binder, which takes dye a little bit more lightly than the rayon fiber.
