One of our favorite fantastical movies (and books) is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. With its whimsical songs and magical storytelling, we are caught up in the magic of the wondrous adventure that Caractacus Potts spins for his children and the beautiful Truly Scrumptious. Inspired by her wonderful dresses and her love for all sweets, we named this candy-colored yarn for her.

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process. However, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We suggest hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.
When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed upon request and as time permits. Dyed to order must be requested via email and can take 2-3 weeks for shipment.
Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein.
All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content. We do not accept returns except where the item arrives damaged. Our yarns come in a skein. We highly recommend using a swift and ball winder before working with the yarn. At this time we do not offer a ball winding service.
