Yarn by the lot

Grand River Yarns

Yarn by the lot came about because I have lots of odds and ends of yarn left over from kits. Some lots listed here will be all full balls and other could be some full balls and some partial balls but the total amount will be listed. In the past 20 years I have bought discontinued or over run lots of yarn. I often buy from designer who have yarn left over after an order is filled. They sell the yarn to me a discounted price from what they paid in many cases to import it. Then I end up with small amounts left over as well. I currently have lots of yarn that would fit the category of odds and ends when the kits are sold out and more yarn is not available. So as time allows I will add to this page and when something is sold I will remove the lot.  I will put new additions at the top so that you will see the current additions without having to scroll down. I hope you find some odds and ends to add to your stash.

Very hard to get a picture that shows the true colour of this yarn.
I would call it a charcoal brown. It is a medium dusty brown with a wrap of black yarn so it looks dark brown with a touch of grey. It looks like a mohair boucle , lovely tiny curls spun in the yarn.

this light weight boucle wool is not soft. I suspect it has something in it to give it body that would soften when washed.  The colour is much darker, less a grey and more a sage green but when I tried to increase the green it went lime green. It is a very pretty soft colour and would make a large triangular shawl.

This yarn is a soft rayon yarn in a periwinkle blue.
The texture of the yarn has small cluster. It was impossible
to get a good accurate picture of this yarn ad the shine
bounced the light back and the contrast of the yarn
disappeared. If you look at the small strand of yarn I left
out the ball so you could see the texture you will see the
small cluster.  This is a very pretty yarn but a terrible
picture.

The grey is what I would call a stone grey and I can't get it to show in this picture even with a lot of adjustments. Add a bit of beige to this colour and you would be closer. This is a light bulky yarn so it would knit on 6mm and up needles.
