Yarn Bases

 

FINGERING WEIGHT YARNS 

PERFECT SOCK

80% Superwash Merino 20% Nylon 

Fingering weight

High Twist 2 ply

375m per 100g skein 

Soft enough for babies and durable enough for socks this yarn can be used for any fingering weight project. The nylon content and the high twist mean it will stand up to intense wear without pilling, even on your feet. 

 

FAIRY SOCK 

75% Superwash Merino 20% nylon 5% Fairy sparkle

Fingering Weight

HighTwist 

400m per 100g skein

PERFECT

100% Superwash Merino 

Fingering Weight

High Twist

365m per 100g

The perfect soft and simple fingering weight merino yarn with extra durability due to the high twist construction.  

 

SIMPLE SINGLES

100% Superwash Merino 

Single Ply

366m per 100g

Single Ply yarns have an almost hand-spun look to them which will add a subtle rustic appearance to your garments.

Slightly more delicate that the high twist yarns we don't recommend this for socks or mittens. 

 

SILKY SINGLES

70% Superwash Merino 30% Silk 

Single ply 

400m per 100g 

This yarn combines the qualities of silk and single-ply yarn to perfection.  Single- ply has a delicately rustic appearance that calls to mind hand spun yarn. Combined with the sheen that the silk content gives, you are met with a yarn that is both sophisticated and slightly bohemian. 

This yarn is best saved for projects such as shawls and sweater as it will not stand up to vigorous wear on items such as socks and gloves. 

 

CLOUD 

69% Silk 22%Mohair 9%Polyamide

Fingering Weight

350m per 100g.

 2 Ply 

This is our most luxury base which is made of mainly silk fibre with the addition of mohair for a wonderful halo and some polyamide for strength. It looks wavy in yarn form but knits up smooth. 

The sheen from the silk combined with the halo from the mohair make for the most luxurious of garments or shawls. Perfect for anyone who doesn’t love working with lace weight mohair held alone as this has the body and weight of a fingering weight yarn.     

 

ANGEL DELIGHT

70% Alpaca 20% Silk 10% Cashmere

Fingering Weight

400m per 100g

The delectable combination of fibres in this base create a yarn that is incredibly soft and that drapes beautifully.. This base takes the dyes we use differently and all our colourways will be slightly more subtle on it. 

LACE WEIGHT YARNS

FEATHERDOWN

72% Kid Mohair 28% silk 

Lace weight

420g per 50g skein 

Light as a cloud, soft as a feather. This magical mohair silk blend is perfect knit alone, held double or added in with other yarns. It has a substantial halo and will create ethereal dreamy looking garments that weigh very little but are incredibly warm!

FAIRGROUND

74% Baby Surri Alpaca 26% Silk 

Lace Weight

300m per 50g skein 

Our Fairground base reminds us of Candy Floss. It can be used for anything you would use our Featherdown base for but its is even softer. It is more matte in appearance and looks more fluffy than mohair.
