We've curated a collection of bases in fibers that we love working with ourselves - including both superwash (SW) and non-superwash (NSW) yarns! If you have any questions about our bases, feel free to reach out so we can help you pick a base (or combination of bases) that will allow your project to shine!

Meet the newest NSW base in our lineup:

Wrongful Natural Merino

.

$28 - Fingering weight (2-ply)

436 yds per 100 g: 100% NSW merino

.

This is a non-superwash (NSW) yarn, which will dye up a little more muted than our SW bases (similar to our other NSW base, Methodical Worsed). This yarn makes a soft and lightweight fabric, it's squishy and warm, and perfect for garments and accessories!

  • Serious Suri Silk

    $27- Lace weight

    328 yds per 50 g: 74% Baby Suri Alpaca / 26% Silk

    .

    This yarn is luxuriously soft, with a beautiful fluffy halo. It may be used in delicate lightweight garments or accessories (holding the yarn alone or with another strand of yarn). We recommend holding this yarn with Wicked Merino to give a DK weight gauge, giving you the opportunity to mix colors in interesting new ways!

  • Wicked Merino

    $28- Fingering weight (2-ply)

    400 yds per 100 g: 80% SW Merino / 20% Nylon

    .

    This is a great all-purpose yarn, the merino gives the fabric an amazingly soft texture and drape, while the nylon provides some stability to make fabrics more sturdy. This yarn works up well in garments, accessories, and socks. This yarn will give a fabric that is lightweight and airy.

  • Manic Tweed

    $28- Fingering weight (2-ply)

    438 yds per 100 g: 85% SW Merino / 15% Donegal Nep

    .

    The tweedy neps in this base give it such definition - even simple stockinette stitch shines in this yarn. This is a 2-ply yarn, and it's soft yet durable enough to work in garments, accessories, or even lightly worn socks. The neps have a subtle texture, that would bring interesting depth to cablework.

  • Hysterical Sport

    $28- Sport weight (3-ply)

    328yds per 100 g: 100% SW Merino

    .

    Our sport weight yarn is a great intermediate weight yarn! Its 3 plies make it very evenly round, giving it a great stitch definition. Being 100% superwash merino, it makes a very soft fabric that would work beautifully in garments and accessories.

  • Charming DK

    $28- light DK / heavy Sport weight (8-ply)

    274 yds per 100 g: 100% SW Merino

    .

    This is a super squishy superwash yarn - it's made up of four 2-ply strands, resulting in a very soft and airy 8-ply yarn. This yarn has great stitch definition because it is so round, resulting in very sharp lace, cables, and colorwork. It would be ideal for accessories and garments, however we do not recommend using this yarn for socks, as it has no added nylon.

  • Despicable Cashmere DK

    $30 - DK weight(4-ply)

    231 yds per 100 g: 80% SW Merino / 10% Cashmere / 10% Nylon

    .

    This yarn is such a treat - its 10% cashmere content gives it a very soft drape, while its nylon content gives it durability. This yarn would work up beautifully in garments, shawls, and hats! Because it's a 4-ply yarn, it has a nice roundness that also shows great stitch definition in cables and lacework.

  • Methodical Worsted

    $28 - Worsted weight (4-ply)

    218 yds per 100g: 100% non-SW Merino

    .

    This is a non-superwash (NSW) yarn, meaning that the fibers in this yarn are in their "natural" state. Superwash yarns are chemically treated to remove the scales around the individual fibers, but this yarn has not received this treatment. NSW yarns tend to have more muted colors than SW, even when using the same color recipe. Additionally, non-SW yarns are more susceptible to felting when agitated in hot water - so do NOT machine wash/dry items made from this yarn!

    We love the quirks of non-SW yarns because they knit up into really gorgeous, squishy projects! They work well in sweaters, accessories, and socks.
