This cyan colorway is dyed on Iron Dragon’s lovely 4-ply Fearless base:
● 50% superwash merino, 50% Grade A mulberry silk
● 438 yards (401 meters)
● 100 gram (3.5 ounce) hank
You’ll love how soft and light this yarn is! Silk enhances the breathability of your finished item and feels wonderful next to the skin. Its shimmer and drape is perfect for a wide range of stylish patterns but is especially recommended for any project you want to treasure!
Items that experience a lot of wear and tear will benefit from this 4-ply yarn. More plies mean longevity: less pilling, less strand breakage, and less thinning. Plus, those plies mean you’ll see excellent stitch definition!
For best results due to the silk content, hand wash items in cold water and lay flat to dry.
Iron Dragon yarn is hand-dyed and rinsed in a clean, pet-free, and smoke-free environment in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada.

This is a Great Mormon butterfly (Papilio memnon agenor) which is native to southern Asia. It’s part of the swallowtail family (even though this particular variant is tailless). It has a wingspan of 120-150mm (4.7 to 5.9 in). Seeing a blue butterfly is like seeing a shooting star: something you have wished for is about to arrive in your life and you should embrace that change. I shot this specimen in the butterfly house at the Calgary Zoo.
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.
