Formerly an exclusive colorway for the DCS Pigskin Party, our Birds of Play colorway is making its general shop debut! Birds of Play was inspired by the five NFL teams whose names are breeds of birds:
Philadelphia EAGLES ~ Atlanta FALCONS ~ Arizona CARDINALS ~ Baltimore RAVENS ~ Seattle SEAHAWKS
Our colorway, however, takes things literally and features five stripes in the colors of the actual birds for which the teams are named, rather than the team colors! So no matter who your favorite football team is, if you’re Team Bird, you are free to enjoy this colorway!
(Fun fact…in researching these bird colors, I learned that there isn’t actually a “seahawk,” and the breed of Seattle’s mascot is actually an Augur Buzzard…but the Seattle Buzzards doesn’t have quite the same ring, does it? LOL)
Birds of Play is available in-stock on the following bases:
Bounce – fingering, 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, 400 yards per 100-gram skein
Mountain Tweed BFL – fingering, 85/15 SW BFL/Donegal Nepp (Nylon), 438 yards per 100-gram skein
Traveler – sport, 80/20 SW Merino/Nylon, 328 yards per 100-gram skein
Recommended care: Though these are superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.
All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color strengths can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
