There is a TON of yarn that needs to go. Most of it is discontinued so you may come upon some yarn that you wish you had bought. I am going to post the de-stash in bits and pieces to keep it manageable, so if you don't see something you like, keep checking back here at Knit and Tonic every few days. This is likely to go on for a month or more.
This is how it will work:
- I will post pictures with a description of the yarn and the asking price.
- All prices INCLUDE domestic Priority Mail Shipping. These yarn lots are big, so I will have to use Priority Flat Rate Shipping in some cases.
- I will ship to U.S. addresses only.
- First person to email me at knit and tonic at gmail dot com (don't want to put the address in its real form for obvious reasons) and say they want the yarn, and then after my confirmation, send funds via Paypal, the yarn will be popped in the mail and you'll have it in your hot little hands within a few days.
- Sorry, I can't accept checks.
- Even though these are large lots in most cases, I cannot split them up.
- All yarn has been kept in pristine condition.
- All the money collected will be given to Nancy.
So here we go!
The first lot is 16 balls of Berroco Celeste. This is a blend of mohair, acrylic, nylon and polyester. There are 119 yards in each ball. Suggested needle size is US #7 (4.5mm). Ball band says it knits to 20 sts per four inches. There is enough here to make a poncho, shawl or even a sweater. It'd make a nice lap blanket, too. You can see that is is a blend of grey, white, and a tiny bit of muted gold (very small amount).
Nancy paid $7.95 for each ball ($127 bucks in total!). I will ask for $55.00, including shipping. SOLD!
The next lot is 20 balls of Adrienne Vittadini Daniella in a gorgeous scarlet. This is a blend of merino and cashmere. Each 50g ball has 96 yards and is a worsted weight (19 sts per four inches). Suggested needle size is US #8 (5mm). These 20 balls will definitely yield you a size large or larger cardigan or pullover.
Nancy paid $12.90 for each ball (imagine forking out $258 all at once!). Red is her favorite color. She told me that she had planned on a cardigan for herself. I will sell these 20 balls for $95.50 including Priority Mail Shipping. SOLD!
The next lot is more Adrienne Vittadini yarn. It's called Teresa and it's a black and white blend of cotton and nylon. There are 125 yards in each 50g ball. There are a total of 14 balls, enough to make a cardigan, pullover or tweedy looking summer tank. The suggested needle size is US #6 (4.25mm) and knits up to 21 sts per four inches.
Nancy paid $9.95 a ball. I will sell all 14 balls for $55.00, including Priority Mail Shipping.
Here are 6 hanks of white Tahki Cotton Classic. I just love this stuff. I don't see any price tags but I do know that this yarn sells for about $6.25 a hank these days. And, this looks to be a recent purchase. There are 108 yards in each 50g hank and it knits up to about 5 sts per inch on size US #6 (4.25mm) needles. I LOVE this stuff. There isn't enough to knit a cardigan, but you could definitely make one for a little kid or make a tank for yourself. People also use this yarn for market bags and such. It has a lovely sheen.
I will sell the 6 hanks for $20.00, including shipping. SOLD!
The last lot for today is a group of 8 smushy hanks of Classic Elite Yarns Sand. This is 100% cotton and it is soft yet nubby. There are 154 yards in each 100g hank and it knits to about 4 sts per inch on size #8 (5mm) needles. There is enough here to make a short-sleeve top or cardigan, a tank, or a baby blanket. I'd describe the color to be a creamy off-white. Almost a buttery off-white. Yeah, this is definitely baby blanket material.
Nancy paid $9.95 per hank, or $79.60 for the lot. I will sell it for $40.00, including shipping. SOLD!
Stay tuned for updates and more de-stash posts!
