Yarn Bases

Laceweight Yarns 

Fluff

Fluff is a laceweight yarn made of a blend of 72% kid mohair and 28% silk. On its own, or held with another yarn, this base is a showstopper. Beautifully soft, Fluff has an ethereal halo that the mohair provides, and the silk core provides its strength. One skein weighs 50g and has 420 metres.

Suri Silk Cloud

Our new Suri Silk Cloud base is our softest yet! 74% suri baby alpaca meets 26% mulberry silk in this gorgeous laceweight yarn. If you find mohair lace remotely itchy, this may be the alternative for you. It creates a lovely lightweight fabric by itself, or can be held double with another yarn to give your project a more fluffy texture. One skein weighs 50g and has 300 metres.  

Fingering/4ply Yarns 

Merino Sock

This classic sock base is a blend of 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon. It is super soft yet durable, making it the perfect choice for anything from socks to shawls or sweaters. One skein weighs 100g and has 425 metres. 

Twinkle Sock

This sparkly yarn is a blend of 75% superwash merino, 20% nylon and 5% stellina. We carry both gold and silver in this twinkle base. The sparkle in this yarn is subtle and gives the finished fabric such a lovely lustre which looks amazing in the light. The nylon content makes this yarn hardwearing so it is ideal for all projects from socks to garments. One skein weighs 100g and has 400 metres.  

Plumpy

Plumpy is one of our most luxurious bases, composed of 80% extrafine merino, 10% nylon and 10% cashmere. This fingering weight yarn is delightfully plump and so squishy. It has a wonderful stitch definition, making it perfect for your fairisle or cabled sweaters. As it has some nylon content you could make some very special socks in it, but they would have to be hand washed. One skein weighs 100g and has 350 metres.

Merino Singles

This fingering weight yarn is 100% merino. The single ply gives this yarn a silky looking finish that makes the colours shine. Due to the single ply and lack of nylon, this yarn isn’t durable enough for socks. However it makes stunning shawls as it has a lovely drape and a beautiful stitch definition which works particularly well for brioche and lace patterns. It also pairs wonderfully with either of our fluffy laceweight yarns. One skein weighs 100g and has 366 metres. 

Yak sock

Our Yak and Merino fingering base is composed of 70% superwash merino, 20% yak and 10% nylon. The natural colour of the yak makes the dye colours so rich and opulent. The finished fabric is beautifully soft and the nylon makes it robust enough for any project. One skein weighs 100g and has 400 metres.  

Camel Silk

Our Camel Silk fingering base is made up of 50% baby camel and 50% silk. This is our most luxurious base, it is by far the softest and squishiest yarn I have ever worked with. The silk gives the yarn a wonderful sheen and drape, while the baby camel makes it incredibly soft and warm. This yarn is beautiful for shawls and garments alike. One skein weighs 100g and has 400 metres.

DK Yarns

Gleam

Gleam DK is a beautiful blend of 55% Bluefaced Leicester and 45% silk. The BFL makes the yarn wonderfully sturdy and hard wearing, while the silk gives it a beautiful softness and makes it glow. This yarn is perfect for garments and accessories alike. One skein weighs 100g and has 212 metres.

Chunky Yarns

Merino Chunky

Our Merino Chunky base is 100% superwash merino. It is delightfully soft and squishy with a lovely stitch definition. Perfect for hats, accessories and garments alike. One skein weighs 100g and has 100m.
