I love the top grey wool
do you know the approx swatch size.
Iam looking for something that knits 5.5 sts/8 rows per inch on a 3mm-4mm needle.
Would the grey work for that, or possibly the bronze.
I would need approx 1700 yards.

Let me know

Laura

Dear Laura,

The Grey yarn is probably too chunky for your project. The wool blend in bronze is a great alternative. It's very nice and soft. I've only one lb left and the actual yardage is unknown but I think it is about 5600-6000 yard or more. To meet your gauge, you need about 3 strands. Hope that helps.

Cheers,
Maryann

Thanks Laura. The airmail postage to Canada for 3 skeins is $16 and should take about 5-8 days to reach you. The total will be $40 ($24 + $16).

Cheers,
Maryann

Ok, I am a total kumquat here, so bear with me....what is the rough yardage on say, the pink mohair one or the burgundy mohair one? I am not holding you to it, just looking for a ballpark idea.

Dear Kitkat,

The pink skein is actually a soft wool blend. I have two 8oz skein and one 7oz skein left. Would estimate the yardage to be around 5600-6000ypp.

The burgundy (maroon) skein is the wool mohair blend, there is no info about the actual percentage, but it feels like a 80-90% of wool with some mohair. I have three 7oz skeins and would estimate the yardage to be around 1800-2200ypp.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Maryann

One last question and then I will email with my "order"

Do you think the pink stuff will felt? ( I would probably do 2/3 strands)
