DRAGON TALE YARNS

We no longer have a dyehouse that can produce the six rainbow (variegated, space-dyed) colorways. We will ship what we have on hand as it is ordered, but will not backorder any that are out-of-stock. We will continue to have the solids.
This is a set of American-made (except for the chenille) yarns, dyed 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.
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 sixteen solid colors made in all the yarn types. We still have a fair amount of the variegated colors, but some have run out and, sadly, are gone.
SOLD BY THE CONE (Not by fractions of cone).
If a cone is under-weight, we will pro-rate.

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).
With first wash, to avoid running, rinse well, and and move immediately to dryer.

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.

8/2 Rayon
5/2 Rayon
Rayon Slub
Rayon Chenille
Rayon Bouclé
4/2 Cotton
8/2 Cotton
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.
