Multi-disciplinary Destash, part 3: Yarn

The yarn section is the largest part of my destash, so I'm going to break it up over several posts.  For purchasing guidelines, see this post or the Destash tab under the header.

Noro Kureyon - $60

I've knit a lot of sweaters with Noro yarns over the years, but nowadays I just don't feel very interested in the stripey things, so I'm letting the last of my stash go.  This is a full bag of Kureyon, all the same color and dyelot:  Color 184, lot D.  This generally retails for $9 a ball, so this is a pretty good deal for anyone who loves Kureyon.  The main colors are teal, magenta and ochre brown.  My Ravelry stash page is here.

Noro Silk Garden - $80

This is another full bag, color 251, lot G.  Silk Garden retails for $12 a ball, so again, a significant saving here.  The main colors in this yarn are magenta, slate and soft pink.  My stash page is here.

Noro sweater - $60

This one is kind of unconventional.  It's an oversized sweater I knit and only wore once.  It's just not flattering on me, either in shape or color.  Anyone wishing to buy this is free to either keep it and wear it as a garment, or frog it and use the yarn.  It was knit with Noro Kureyon in color 183.  I've included the remainder of the yarn, and the total is approximately 9.5 balls.  The buttons are also still on the sweater.  My Ravelry page for this sweater is here.

  1. I don't understand this ribbon yarn phase, I think that it is favored by beginners though because it works up into something substantial very quickly. I'll just stick with regular yarn and knit the old fashioned way, thank you.

    1. I don't mind all ribbon yarns, but this one just didn't do it for me!

  2. I hope these get sold to a loving home! Tell me, what's it like knitting with silk? What are its properties?

    1. Hmmmm . . . it's been a long time since I knit with 100% silk. I do know that it sticks to every little hangnail and piece of dry skin! But it's also very luxurious. The yarn above is mostly wool with a little silk in it, so it mostly feels like working with wool. I did find some tussah silk spinning fiber in my stash, and after I finish some of my other projects I'd like to spin that up :-)
