OBERON SUPERWASH MERINO SILK PEARLESCENT FINGERING

£22.33

OBERON - the king of the fairies from Shakespeare's play: A Midsummer Night's Dream. One of our first speckled shades. A mix of teal, forest green, rust brown, blue and other splashes, with the white yarn base showing through. As these are speckled, each one is different. Please allow a bit of variation from skein to skein.

YARN - Superwash Merino Wool Silk Pearlescent Fingering - (50:50) Smooth with a gorgeous gleam - A fingering weight version of our popular Pearlescent Worsted Weight!

Sure to be a favorite and loaded with yardage!

MERINO WOOL is ultra soft, creamy to the touch, cloud-like and breathes so you stay comfortable and cozy. We had these spun with a very fine merino wool so it's incredibly soft and wonderful for next-to-skin accessories and garments.

MULBERRY SILK is a dream... it glows and gleams and takes the dye so well, that the colors just pop like crazy. It also contributes to the lovely softness.

~When you combine these two fibers into a single ply yarn like this, you get subtle differences in tone as the wool and silk take the dye slightly differently. The colors truly appear to be iridescent and other-worldly. 


•1-ply : For ultra shimmer and glow!
•Fingering Weight: Luxurious, creamy, silky and luscious. Perfect for next-to-skin accessories like cowls, shawls, scarves, hats, fingerless mitts and so much more.
•Superwash Merino Wool - Mulberry Silk blend (50% of each) - hand-wash only for best results. Super soft like buttah, with a shine that just won't quit.
•Yardage: 503 m/ 550 yd
•Weight: Approximately 115 g / 4 oz
•Recommended Knitting Needle Size: US 0-7
•Crochet Hook Size: B-G


Note: Each skein is a hand-created, unique work of art and no two skeins will be identical, even within the same dye lot. If working with more than one skein in a project, it is best to alternate skeins every other row. Despite every effort to accurately depict our product colors, actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.

So worth the $$$$$$
5 Stars

I wanted to add a silk fingering weight yarn to my stash, had added this beauty to my wish list a while ago but hadn't seen it return and didn't hold out much hope it would be offered again. As soon as it was listed I placed an order and never looked back. The colors are stunning, the feel of the yarn is like the lightest cool breeze kissing your skin and there is a slight shimmer in the right light. So very worth the money spent and I am looking forward to wearing the wrap I am making with this yarn.

Rupert Everett would be proud.
5 Stars

Have you ever seen "William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream"? It's a 1999 film with a stellar cast, including Rupert Everett as Oberon. It's one of my Desert Island films, and I can see the colors of the film in this colorway, Chandi's really outdone herself with this one. Soft and glowy, slithery and magical, this yarn is in currently in my stash patiently waiting for the perfect pattern to bring out its sorcerous charm.

This one's a WOW
5 Stars

I picked up three skeins of Oberon when it was introduced as a more or less experimental colorway. I really couldn't resist, even though I shouldn't have spent the cash. Then it arrived, and I had zero regrets on buying it. It is absolutely gorgeous, and the wrap I'm crocheting with it feels amazing to the touch and has lovely drape. The speckling is turning a relatively simple lacy pattern into something spectacular. It has become my new favorite colorway and I need to rob a bank and buy it allllllllllllll!
