what the dragon lady coughed up! It's Drachenwolle, and a beautiful skein at that! It was not a surprise to find this package in my mailbox, but it was a great surprise to be asked for my address by Christiane, the dragon lady. Usually you would expect fire and smoke coming out of a dragon, but Christiane is dealing with yarn. How was it, that I came to be able to give this merino/linen sock yarn a try? Well, one day I left a comment on Heike's post about her newest yarn purchase at Drachenwolle, where she mentioned this particular blend, which was new to me. That's what I said in my comment as well, and Christiane must have read it, and was so generous to send me this gorgeous sample! I got to select the colorway myself. I was thoroughly tempted to choose one of her wonderful orange colorways, but stopped myself. There's too much orange in my life already. I LOVE this colorway, and I'm looking forward to cast on some socks.
