ALL BASES ARE WORSTED SPUN.

SUPERWASH BASES

75/25 Merino Sock ($32)

This is a classic fingering weight sock yarn. Merino wool is beautifully soft, and nylon adds strength and durability. This yarn has good elasticity, and is great for fitted garments such as socks. 

  • 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon
  • 4ply, light fingering weight yarn
  • 463 yds (423 meters) per 100g skein
  • Recommended gauge: about 7 to 9 stitches per inch. 
  • Also available in 20g/ 92yd mini skeins, and 50g/ 231yd skeins

.

75/25 BFL Sock ($32)

Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool has a longer staple length but less crimp than merino wool. This translates into a yarn that is stronger, more durable, and more resistant to felting and pilling than merino, but with a bit less elasticity. Combined with nylon, this yarn is amazingly strong, perfect for socks or projects that may get heavy wear. Superwash treatment allows for easy care. BFL has an innate sheen, and bare fibres are a pale buttery yellow which lend a slightly warmer undertone to colorways. 

  • 75% Superwash Blue Faced Leicester, 25% Nylon
  • 4ply yarn
  • 464 yds (424 meters), 100g skeins
  • Recommended gauge: about 7 to 9 stitches per inch.

Merino DK 8 ply ($32)

This base is super bouncy and round, takes dye beautifully, and is an absolute pleasure to knit!

  • 100% Superwash Merino
  • 8ply cabled construction, heavy sport/light DK weight
  • 274 yds (250 meters), 100g skein

.

BFL DK ($32)

Bluefaced Leicester (BFL) wool has a longer staple length but less crimp than merino wool. This translates into a yarn that is stronger and more durable, but with less elasticity. Less crimp also means it has better drape when worked up and is more resistant to felting and pilling than merino. This yarn has an innate sheen. Bare BFL is a pale buttery yellow, so colorways dyed on this base have a slightly warmer undertone.

  • 100% Superwash British Bluefaced Leicester Wool
  • 4 ply yarn 
  • 246 yds (224m) 100g skein

.

Merino Worsted 8 ply ($32)
