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. 50g/420m.

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. 50g/300m.

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. 100/425m.

Luxe Sock

This sock base has to be my favourite - 75% 19.5micron Superwash Merino and 25% nylon - twisted into a beautiful 3ply yarn. Slightly more twisted than our usual merino sock, and slightly less than our high twist, this yarn is wonderfully soft and perfect for wearing against your skin. It takes dye beautifully and speckles really pop with the nature of the twist of the yarn. This yarn is perfect for any project, from socks to shawls and sweaters too. 100g/425m.

High Twist Sock

This base is the same as our classic merino sock, however it has a higher twist to the yarn meaning it has beautiful stitch definition, is very sturdy for garments which get more wear and our main reason for stocking it - it takes speckles beautifully! Perfect for all projects, this yarn is a great all rounder. 100/425m

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. 100g/400m.

Silky Sock

This 50% SW merino 50% silk blend yarn is beautiful to knit and to wear. It has a gorgeous sheen and is ideal for garments and shawls. 400m per 100g.

 

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. 100g/350m

Gleam Fingering

Gleam 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. 100g/400m.

Merino Singles

This fingering weight yarn is 100% merino wool. 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. 100g/366m.

Merino Mohair Singles

This stunning singles yarn is composed of 56% Superwash Merino and 44% Kid Mohair. This yarn is beautifully squishy and soft, and has the most beautiful halo. Due to the nature of single ply, I would recommend this yarn for shawls mostly. 100g/400m.

Linen Singles 

This 90% SW merino/10% linen blend is a beautiful yarn for spring and summer knitwear. The linen content provides a slight fleck to the yarn, creating a beautiful organic looking fabric. 366m per 100g.

Donegal Tweed Fingering

This beautiful fingering weight base is 85% Superwash Merino and 15% Donegal Neps. The Donegal neps are black, brown and white and give a lovely tweed effect. Ideal for all projects from socks to sweaters. 100g/400m. 

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. 100g/400m.

Yak Luxe

This fingering weight yarn is pure luxury. Composed of 50% Yak and 50% Silk, this yarn is buttery soft, has a beautiful sheen, is durable yet makes the most stunning fabric. The base has a gorgeous natural grey base which makes the colours rich and opulent once it’s dyed. Ideal for garments and accessories. 50g/200m.

BFL 4ply

Our BFL 4ply base is made of 100% superwash Bluefaced Leicester. BFL has longer fibres than other wool bases, and so it makes for a harder wearing yarn. This makes it perfect for those sweaters and shawls which you know will be staples in your wardrobe and get lots of wear as it pills less than other yarns. It has a beautiful, natural sheen and the colours of hand dyed yarns really are stunning on this base. 100g/400m
