AMETHYST SKY

This purple and blue colorway is dyed on Iron Dragon’s fun sport weight 2-ply Dream base:

● 50% merino, 50% bamboo (viscose)
● 262 yards (240 meters)
● 100 gram (3.5 ounce) hank

Dream is plump, bouncy, squishy, and super soft, with sheen reminiscent of silk. Working with it is literally a dream: it glides over hooks and needles with ease.

Bamboo is naturally antibacterial, breathable, and when combined with merino wool makes projects that shine!

Once worked up, you’ll have a fantastic fabric with excellent drape and wonderful stitch definition. The yarn is a great option for both warm and cool weather projects. Try it on blankets, shawls, wraps, ponchos, mittens, toques, sweaters, cardigans, and more!

Iron Dragon yarn is hand-dyed and rinsed in a clean, pet-free, and smoke-free environment in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada.

INSPIRATION PHOTO

A trio of bluebells against mountains and a blue sky.Imagine yourself relaxing in a mountain meadow, gazing into the blue sky with the sun shining through the bluebells, turning their delicate petals purple. What a great way to spend a summer day! With Amethyst Sky you can bring the bluebells and the summer sky home to crochet or knit into a fabulous project.

The flower is Campanula rotundifolia, known locally as the bluebell (even though they often appear to be purple!). This picture was taken in Banff National Park on a hiking trail near Tunnel Mountain.

Iron Dragon is also on Ravelry.

Every effort is made to depict skein color accurately but actual shades may vary due to differences in monitor settings.

Each skein is also unique: no two will be exactly the same, even when dyed together. For best results, alternate skeins every other round or row.

Don’t forget to order enough yarn for your project!
