This bright pink 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.

Geum triflorum, or Three Flowered Avens, is a wildflower found growing on Alberta’s prairies as well as in the foothills and the Rockies. It’s also called Old Man’s Whiskers or Prairie Smoke owing to the way the blooms puff up into soft, smoke-like seedheads at the end of its season in June. 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.
