New World Orioles are a group of birds in the genus Icterus of the blackbird family. A favored, migratory songbird, Orioles weave basket-like nests and fill the woods of the mid-Atlantic with song in the summer. Their brilliant contrasting plumage makes them a stand out beauty in the forests.

LUMEN is 50% silk and 50% merino in a fingering weight, and our Icterus skeins are tribute to the flashing golden orange of the busy orioles nesting in Lancaster County. Each 100 gram skein is 437 yards of silky goodness.  Ready to knit or crochet something amazing?
