DRAGON TALE YARNS

New for Fall 2013: we have added a Rayon Bouclé to the Dragon Tale line. We have it in most but not quite all of the colors yet, and are adding the remaining ones as quickly as we can. It is as brilliant as the other rayons, sets at 10 per inch, especially good for rigid heddle looms.

This is a set of American-made yarns, dyed with fiber-reactive dyes to our own palette of coordinated colors. They are deal for all forms of weaving, hand and machine knitting and crochet, and very reasonably priced.
There are two weights of smooth matt cotton, and (as of Fall 2013) five rayons: two smooth, a slub, and a high-lustre, 1000 yd/LB twisted chenille. Of the eighteen colors, twelve are solids: four light-and-dark color pairs, plus Black, Curry, Gold and Olive The remaining six are space-dyed rainbows.

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.

** 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.
