The violet sabrewing (Campylopterus hemileucurus) is a very large hummingbird native to Central America. It is found at the edges of mountain forests, especially near streams, feeding primarily on the nectar of Heliconias and bananas.
It's a superwash treated DK weight yarn that's snuggly and smooth. It's spun from 75% merino wool for softness and warmth and 25% nylon for enhanced durability. It is suitable for approximately 4-5mm needles. About 224 metres per 100g skein.
This yarn is presented as a skein. If you would like it caked then this adds 24h to the dispatch time and costs £2. You can purchase this service here:
