This sunny yellow colorway is dyed on Iron Dragon’s versatile 4-ply fingering weight Journey base, which is 75% finespun superwash merino and 25% nylon.
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!
Journey is perfect for socks! Finespun wool adds extra softness while the nylon content brings even more strength and resiliency to the yarn to make your handmade socks last. Nylon yarn is not just for socks though! It’s also perfect for scarves, gloves, shawls, ponchos, tops, and even beanies, cardigans, and tank tops.
Although superwash yarn can be machine washed and tumble dried on low, for best results wash items by hand 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 picture shows a female Goldenrod Crab Spider (Misumena vatia) which is an ambush spider that can shift its coloration to better camouflage itself. Ambush spiders jump on their prey instead of spinning webs. This variety prefers goldenrod flowers, hence the name. It uses its very long front legs to grab unsuspecting bees or other insects that come to the flower. Goldenrod Crab Spiders have enough strength in their legs that they can grab insects that are much larger than they are. After females lay their eggs, they guard the sac until the offspring hatch. The female dies shortly afterward. This photo was taken in Kananaskis country near Sibbald Flats.
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.
