 Product Description

Dyed to order, ships in 1-4 weeks.

All fiber bases are commercial combed top preparations, hand dyed by Ginny of FatCatKnits. Colorways are dyed according to recipes and processes developed to produce the most consistently repeatable colorways. That said, this is a HUMAN operation- please expect some degree of variation between batches, and even from braid to braid.

Wondering about your order status? Forgot to add a note? Want to combine orders from this website and other FatCatKnits venues? Email me (Ginny) at FatCatKnits@gmail.com.

Please check label for care instructions.

The MegaSAL was the brainchild of David of Southern Cross Fibre. A few years ago he assembled a great group of dyers- himself, me, Hello Yarn, Into the Whirled, Nest Fiber Studio and Spunky Eclectic, and set us the challenge of creating colorways inspired by the massive fantasy book series, Discworld.

I was a bit of a newbie to this series, having read only 'Going Postal' some years ago, and now 'Guards! Guards!', to get inspired (LOVED both of them). Based on my readings, I created two colorways, this one, and another, Ankh Morpork, available in a separate listing.

Head over to the MegaSAL group on Ravelry to see all the amazing colorways and the fantastic yarns and projects created.

I don't want to spoil 'Guards! Guards!' if you have not read it, so to explain the creative process just a bit- there is a dragon in the book. Mostly at night. And it is NOT nice. I went literal with this, creating a dark, pitch purple and blue dragon 'skin', adding in a bit of gray 'smoke' and finishing with some yellow-hot 'flame'. Laid out in a mirrored progressive color- spin a gradient, strip it thin and spin at random, break out the colors and spin separately for a colorwork project. Or, ply it with one of the other dyer's colorways. At any rate, HAVE FUN :)

  1. noble dragon targhee

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Apr 2015

    This was my first purchase from FatCatKnits and I'm so please with my purchase. The colour is even better in person than on the screen. The colours have a deep saturation without losing the " hand" of the fibre. It is spinning like a dream no pre-drafting required so no added tension on my hands. I will purchase FCK fibre again:-)


  2. The colors fit the name

    This colorway is very aptly named! I plan to spin yarn for a shawl. It will be gorgeous!

    I love the version of this colorway on the Targhee- again, not nearly so bright as on my monitor so I was super pleasantly surprised! Wonderful seller, fast shipping- looking forward to another purchase from the store!
