Orders are shipping daily. Because of the global pandemic, delivery times are likely to be longer than usual and may be somewhat unpredictable. Although most items arrive remarkably promptly considering the circumstances, please do not contact me to ask where your order is until two weeks have elapsed (UK) or one month (international). Prior to that, please use the tracking information. I have made signed-for delivery compulsory on a temporary basis until postal services are managing better or folk become used to slightly longer waits. Thank you for your understanding at this difficult time.

Inspired by the beautiful Rosy Maple Moth (Dryocampa rubicunda), a cute fluffy looking North American species. Their distinctive pink and yellow colouration varies in intensity from bright to pastel. Boy moths have feathery antennae that help them detect girl moth pheromones for mothy good times(!) and the ladies subsequently lay their eggs on yummy maple leaves. Caterpillars eat the equivalent of 2-3 leaves each before metamorphosis, but the all-grown-up moths themselves never eat.

This is a new version of one of my longest running colourways with lighter colours that are UV reactive.

It's a superwash treated 4ply sock yarn that's soft and smooth with 60% soft cosy merino wool, 20% superfine alpaca and 20% nylon for strength and durability. It is suitable for approximately 2-3mm needles. About 400 metres per 100g skein.

This yarn is presented a a skein, if you would like it caked I have a separate listing for that service.
