Here is the third installment of the Fancy Nancy Destash. Not everything has sold, so scroll to other destash posts to see what is still available.
As a reminder, this is how it works:
- 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.
The first lot today is five skeins of Classic Elite Sand. This is 100% cotton and each 100g skein contains 154 yards. The ball band says it knits up to 4 sts per inch on US #8 needles. This would make a nice kids' sweater, a little baby blanket or even some monster-y toys.
I will sell all five skeins for $22.00, including priority shipping. SOLD!
Here are 15 skiens of Berroco Cha Cha, 10 of which are in their original, unopened bag. This is a combo of cotton and acrylic and knits up to 16 sts to 4 inches on US #8 needles. There are 92 yards in each 50g skein. I could see this knit up into a nice cardigan or pullover. It'll also be really spectacular in a baby blanket.
Nancy spent $5.95 a skein for this yarn. I will sell it for much, much less. How does $45.00 for the entire lot, including priority shipping sound? SOLD!
Here are 9 skeins of Jaeger Shetland Aran in a gorgeous deep forest green. It is a blend of wool and alpaca. Each 100g skein has 182 yards, so there is over 1,600 yards total in this lot. My guess is, Nancy bought enough for either a sweater or a pullover based on the size she said she usually knits.
Nancy spent $10.00 for each skein. I will sell the lot for $55.00, including priority shipping.SOLD!
This next lot is special. It took me a little bit of detective work to figure out what it was because it was already wound. Nancy being Nancy, though, did hang onto a couple of the ball bands but they were separated from the yarn. I did a bit of searching but brought them back together! These were in the same bin, so I think she may have bought them as a kit or intended to make a particular item. There are 5 cakes of Colinette Hand-Dyed Fandango, which is 100% cotton, and 3 balls of Colinette Hand Dyed Byzantine (Silk and Wool). I weighed them and they are 100g each, so she didn't yet use any of it. These are both pretty bulky yarns. The ball band doesn't state what size needles or gauge.
I can't believe she did this, but she actually paid $25.00 for each of the balls of Byzantine (Yes, I'm a cheapskate). I don't know what whe paid for the Fandango. I could see this as a funky banket, to tell you the truth. Or, if you're fancy like Nancy, something like a vest. All I know is that it is super pretty in person.
I will sell the entire lot for $60.00, including priority shipping. SOLD!
Any Noro lovers out there? Here's about 700g of already-balled Noro and 3 skeins of Classic Elite Lush, which is a combo of Angora and Wool that knits up to 4 sts per inch on Size US #8 needles. About the Noro: I've read online that some people, when they ball it up, separate the colors to avoid certain bits. Looks like Nancy may have done that. I can tell that there are two types of balls: One that has the darker colors and one that has the lighter colors. I can tell that they all came from the same original skeins (in terms of colorway), but I don't know which colorway it was because there isn't a ball band that I can find. It is unmistakenly Noro, though.
I will sell this lot for $35.00, including priority shipping. SOLD!
Here are 7 balls of Sinfonie (I can't read the company name because the price tag hides it). It's a blend of mohair, wool and a tiny bit of nylon. It looks like Nancy may have planned to make a vest or a short-sleeved pullover. I've knit with stuff like this and it really makes a beautiful garment. It is just like Rowan Kidsilk Haze. Each 50g ball has a little over 100 yards. One ball looks short so my guess is Nancy made a gauge swatch. Again, US #8 needles yeilds about 13 sts to 4 inches.
I will sell all 7 balls for $25.00, including shipping. SOLD!
Stay tuned. There is a LOT more yarn to come.
