The Great Destash of 2010!

Hi All. In the midst of all kinds of craziness, we are moving soon and lots of my precious offspring yarn has to go. Here’s a pretty detailed list– if you’re interested in particular dyelots or anything, feel free to email (vanessa [!at] Discounts for buying multiple items!

I am currently living in Manhattan– Midtown West to be more specific– and pickups/meet-ups would be my chosen method of delivery. I can meet you anywhere in the Midtown/Downtown region. If you are very far away, I can send it, but shipping costs are not included. Have at it!!

The Great Destash of 2010!

**All skeins are full, unopened, unused, with labels, unless otherwise noted. If the skein is missing a tag, I have weighed it to ensure that it is a full skein. I am very happy to wind skeins if requested. Click any picture to enlarge**


Koigu Cashmere * 100% Cashmere * $40 for both skeins (described below)

Purple Variegated (Color #C305)– 1 complete (50g) wound skein, 1 partial (27g) wound skein without tag.

This yarn is so pretty and so rare I feel terrible selling it, but I really don’t have a use for it so someone else should have the opportunity. Koigu Cashmere is exclusive to String Yarns in NY– it sells in the store for $40 each. Very rare– the store no longer has any of this color/lot so these are the last 1.5 skeins available. Plenty for a pair of women’s gloves or mittens!


Spud & Chloe Sweater Worsted * 55% Wool, 45% Cotton * $11 each, $40 for all including remnant

Teal (Color #7507)– 4 skeins, one 40g remnant

Leftover from my Darci Cardi– love the yarn, don’t know what else to do with it.


Prism Cashmere * 100% Cashmere * $100 for everything

Ebony– 7 mini skeins. Each sk is 1 oz/47 yd.

In full skeins, 7oz of this stuff would retail for $170 (full skeins are 3.5 oz and $85). Beautiful, soft, warm yarn. There is one skein in a different colorway but you would never know it from just looking at it.

Classic Elite Lavish * 100% Cashmere * $40 each, both for $70

Pink (Color #92559)– 2 skeins

Retails at $60/skein… you know you want it!


Handmaiden 2 Ply Silk Cashmere * 55% Silk, 45% Cashmere * $20

Pink/Yellow Variegated– 1 wound skein, without label.

I don’t know what happened here. I bought this yarn at a fiber festival in Toronto and fell in love– I even wound it after convincing myself that it was my next project, without having any pattern in mind. It has just been sitting on the shelf for 2 years now and somewhere along the line I lost the tag. Ouch. It is still so beautiful, though! Top photos are from when I first bought it, bottom photo is as it is now.

J Knits Superwash Me Sock * 75% Superwash Wool, 25% Nylon * $16
