Crystal Palace Yarns


A large and a medium size squiggle
resting on a lawn chair.


  • Later they moved to the shade of a tree branch.


Squiggles are friendly and enjoy playing
with household pets, here with our dog, Kaya.


Squiggles sneak up on you while you are napping
on the deck and they don't taste good! We do not
recommend sampling them!

First Published Photos of
Squiggles Beasties & a Pattern to make your own.

We have received email asking us the source of the squiggle pieces used to make our popular Squiggle Yarn (see color card here).

We thought it was time to show a couple of these cute little beasties in photos.

We are fortunate that we have a sheltered backyard where the squiggles like to multiply and hang out in the shrubs and trees. Sometimes they play with our dog.

One has to be careful napping on the porch in a lawn chair though, these little critters will come and perch on you (see the bottom photo).

Squiggles are shorn for their unusual fibers twice a year. We guarantee that no squiggles are ever hurt by the shearing process! We use only experienced shearers with lightweight electric shears.

Would you like to KNIT your own Squiggle?

We have a pattern here for you to use - one ball of Iceland (soft wool) and small amounts of Squiggle yarn plus a pair of size 15 CPY Bamboo Needles and you can have 2 or 3 squiggles of your own in just a couple hours. (You also need to have access to a washing machine to felt the little dears and some polyester fiber fill to stuff them!)
