Sappheiros – the greek root of the word Sapphire, meaning ‘blue stone’.  Did you know that a sapphire is a gemstone form of the mineral corundum and that as long as the chemical traces in it don’t make it red, in which case it would be a ruby (and technically a different gem) a sapphire can be any colour?  I know – cool right?  So this skein with it’s blues, pinks, yellows and oranges displays lots of the colours a sapphire could be.  I love it – I get to learn something new about our universe and make beautiful yarn at the same time. Awesome!

This is a Navajo plied light fingering weight yarn, weighing approximately 100g and is 495m long, so is easily enough to make a shawlette, scarf, gloves or socks.
