This vibrant red colorway is dyed on Iron Dragon’s versatile 4-ply fingering weight Journey base:

● 75% fine superwash merino, 25% nylon
● 462 yards (422 meters)
● 100 gram (3.5 ounce) hank

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.

A leaf from a Japanese Maple tree.Japanese Maples are native to Japan, Korea, China, and some other areas. They are highly adaptable trees that are grown around the world and are much loved for their spectacular colors! Traditionally, Japanese Maples are seen as a symbol of abundant blessing, serenity, and are thought of as having the ability to keep people happy. They are also called kito, which means “a calm rest; at peace” in Japanese. This particular tree was growing at the resort on Vancouver Island where I stayed for my wedding.

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!
