“When August days are hot and long, 
And the August hills are hazy, 
And clouds are slow and winds also, 
And brooks are low and lazy. 

When beats the fierce midsummer sun, 
Upon the drying grasses; 
A modest minstrel sings his song 
To any soul that passes. 

A modest, yet insistent bard 
Who while the landscape slumbers; 
And Nature seems, herself asleep, 
Pours out his soul in numbers. 

His song is in a tongue unknown, 
Yet those, methink, who hear it 
Drink in it's healing melody 
Renewed in frame and spirit.”
 - Arthur Goodenough 

There are moments in the night, when you can catch almost the entire world asleep. The silence can sneak up on you, even startle you from revelry. Depending on your mood, the hush can give you comfort or it can make you feel uneasy. 

But, even when it feels like the whole world has gone to mute, usually you will find at least one little cricket hidden in the shadow letting you know you aren’t entirely alone. 

Nothing but Crickets is a very soft and gentle gray and is what I think the embodiment of silence would be minus a little cricket chirping. The night is known for its darkness but I think silence is a much lighter hue.

Information on the base: 

Fingering Weight, 85% Superwash Merino (Extra Fine) 15% Nylon, 4-ply, 437 yards // 100 grams

Worsted Weight, 85% Superwash Merino (Extra Fine) 15% Nylon, 4-ply, 196 yards // 100 grams

All skeins are hand-dyed with care in a smoke-free and pet-free home. Please note that while all skeins are dyed together, every skein of yarn is unique and there may be some slight variation between them. After dyeing, all yarn is washed and rinsed thoroughly, however, a small amount of color bleeding may still occur during the first wash. 

For best care, please gently hand wash in cold water with a wool wash and lay flat to dry. Store yarn in an area away from direct sunlight to help maintain color. 

This yarn is PREORDER only. Please allow 4-6 weeks for the turnaround time.  

All photographs are taken in natural light, and I try to keep the editing to a minimum, but colors may vary from monitor to monitor. 

The wool used in this yarn is ethically produced from sheep that have NOT been mulesed.
