Shop update from Dragon Thistle Fibers

Hello! Somehow I skipped putting a little chat on here for January, the months are a bit of a blur… Nevermind, here we are in mid-February and I hope you are well and being safe. If you pop on over to check out Dragon Thistle Fibers, my shop, you’ll see some pretty mini sets — I carry 10g and 20g mini sets, made up from four to 10 skeins. At the moment all are fingering weight, and I will be putting some worsted-weight minis back in stock soon in the next couple of weeks.

If you use Highland wool in your crafts, I carry worsted weight in beautiful colorways, great for quick mittens, hats, or the bigger projects, like crocheted blankets.

I am a small-and batch dyer, however I do try to have a unique variety for you to choose from, and I also aim to get your order out to you the next business day!

So, come on over and give Dragon Thistle Fibers a try! I’m on instagram, too. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by!

New items in the Dragon Thistle shop

Hello! I’m Gail and Dragon Thistle Fibers is my little corner shop of hand-dyed wool, on Etsy.

At the moment in my shop you’ll fine some Merino/Angora in sets of four 50-gram skeins. This wool is so soft and has a gentle halo form the angora. I am currently knitting with this wool on one of my projects (I have too many!) and it’s coming out lovely.

If you would like pure Highland wool, I have that too in worsted weight. It’s great for blankets, hats and mittens. I do have some that is Superwash and it feels soft.

I add new wool, new colors or repeats each week. So come on over and take a look, you might find a treat for yourself or someone else. 🙂 I do aim to get your orders out the next business day!!

A little corner shop

  • Red and green yarn.

Hello! My name is Gail and Dragon Thistle Fibers is my little corner store. I’m a small-batch dyer and offer a variety of colors and weights. I have put some holiday colors in my shop, including some sock sets in 50-gram skeins that come with a mini! Christmas Party, and Holly Jolly are just two of my holiday colors — come and have a look to see what else is in stock! I have other sets made up in a beautiful soft Merino/angora 80/20 mix. This really is a pretty, and so soft, wool that knits up gorgeously!
