Bell-snickel Yarn,Dickon Base,Hand Dyed Yarn,DK Weight,4 ply,Superwash Nylon mix,100 grams,indie dyed yarn,gift for Knitter,Toad Hollow Yarn


The Bell-snickle is a pest that shows up in John R Neill's (who continued the series after Baum's death) book, The Scalawagons of Oz. The Wizard refers to him as a nuisance and he first appears as "a large bluish-green object, flat as a buckwheat cake, and rolling along on its edge like a cartwheel." Neill gives no account of Bell-snickle's origin or what he can do. The creature likes to think of himself as a "mystery" and has the egotism and petulance of a spoiled child.

These twoskeins are on our Dickon (DK) Base:
100 grams
75% superwash merino 25% nylon
246 yards/225meters
4 ply

Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.

This soft, squishy yarn is perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters or any project where you would use a DK or Worsted weight.

Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.

Sweater quantities of yarn can be ordered - please message us for information.
