We help restore the Patagonia Grasslands by encouraging sustainable farming.Every yarn we stock makes a positive impact.
Migration yarns are dyed by local artist, Linda Wallace and sold exclusively at String Theory. Linda rarely repeats a color, so if you see something you like grab it now and get an extra skein, just in case ;)
400 yds/ 100 gr skeins
80% SW merino, 20% silk
Monarch is the newest addition to the Migration Yarn family. Linda chose the name Monarch because the yarn reminds her of the subtle color shifts and shimmers of butterflies as they flutter between sun and shade in the garden. The addition of silk to the blend brings a rich glow and creates subtle differences in how the dye reacts to the merino and silk. The silk also adds strength to the soft merino. Garments and accessories will be warm and have a lovely drape. Not recommended for socks.
10% of all sales goes to the Northern Illinois Food Bank.
Note: These are hand-dyed skeins done in small batches, please make sure you have enough of the colorway you need to complete your project. Although skeins may look similar, no two skeins are exactly alike. We recommend alternating skeins if using more than one.

It’s hard to decide which I like more : the luscious feel or the rich colors! Love this yarn and highly recommend!!
This yarn is wonderful to work with. I love all the colors and how well it knits up. The finished projects look great!
This is such a great yarn to work with. It never disappoints. The colors are gorgeous, and I'm always proud and confident when I gift someone an item I made with this fiber. Enjoy!
This yarn is so soft and the colors are so vibrant in these yarns! They are very easy to work with and knit up beautifully.
Beautiful colors with just the right amount of sheen and fabulous drape.
