Our Yarn Bases

We just moved across the country and finally bought a house! We're settling in and are going to slowly start adding more of our old bases back. For a while, we'll continue operating with only a few of the bases that we always keep in stock.

Feel free to reach out if you want a base that's not listed as available and I can check and see if I have any left. I might! I'll delete this message once I'm offering all of the regular bases again.

The bases available will vary depending on our inventory and time of the year - if you don't see what you want on the yarn listing, please message us to check and see if we have it in stock. We periodically rotate certain bases out and can usually get more of a retired/seasonal base if you need it for your project.

Current Bases Available

Fingering Weight Bases:

  • Squishy Sock - 85/15 Ultra fine SW Merino/Nylon, 4 ply, 437 yards per 100g - This is our favorite soft sock yarn and is a jack of all trades, from socks to shawls.
  • Silky Sock - 75/25 Ultra Fine SW Merino/Silk 4-ply: 437 yards. Takes dye better than Roo but still has beautiful shine and drape, great for shawls.(Currently not offered)
  • Slinky 150g - 80/10/10 SW Merino/Silk; 600 yards, 2-Ply - this is a great choice for shawls (currently not offered)
  • I Knead This - 80/10/10 SW Merino/Cashmere/Nylon; 435 yards, 4-Ply - Ultra soft yarn - almost as soft as Belle
  • Voo - 80/15/5 SW Merino/Nylon/Stellina Sparkle; 438 yards. Available in Gold or Silver. 2023: Updated to a 4-ply from 2-ply. (Currently not offered)
  • Bright Eyes - 75/25 SW BFL/Nylon, 4-ply, 463 yards - This is the sock yarn you want to choose for ultra strong socks, but is not as soft as the other bases. When you order mini Tonals to match your socks, you'll be getting this base. Perfect for heel and toe. (Currently not offered)

    Bases currently inactive:

    These bases can usually still be dyed by custom request if you reach out to us.

    • Roo - 50/50 SW Merino/Silk; 4-Ply, 438 yards - It's been a very popular base but different batches can vary drastically in appearance. For this reason, I like to keep it in stock for batches of ready to ship yarn that I will occasionally be dyeing. High silk, high drape.
    • Purrty - 55/45 SW BFL/Silk, 4-ply 438 yards - identical to Roo.
    • Belle - ULTRA fine 16 micron SW Merino/Cashmere/Silk - 75/15/10 437 yards per 100g - This is the softest base that we carry and it the most luxurious. Setting to inactive because it's difficult to consistently dye the same as other bases due to the fiber content. Will likely offer ready to ship batches which will feature it but will have photos of the exact yarn you will get.
    • Schmoozie - 75/25 SW Merino/Nylon, 4-ply, 463 yards - this is a great base with the same characteristics of Squishy Sock, but in a longer skein form and slightly more yardage.
    • Schmoozie dk - 75/25 SW Merino/Nylon, 4-ply - 246 yards
    • Slinky- 80/20 SW Merino/Silk; 2-Ply, 400 yards. We're keeping the 150g version and retiring the 100g version. 
    • Precious - 60% Fine Superwash Merino Wool /20% Superkid Mohair/20% Mulberry Silk - 383 yards. 
    • Cozy - 70% Superwash Merino, 20%Silk, 10% Cashmere, 3-ply, 437 yards. This base was replaced by Belle which is softer, but it's still nice.
    • Summer Singles- Single Ply; 90% Ultra Fine SW Merino/10% Linen; 394 Yards. 
    • Brendan- 50/50 Baby Camel/silk 4-ply 438 yards
    • Regal DK- 50/50 Silk/SW Merino 4-ply, 231 yards - replaced by Silky DK which takes color better and retains the same characteristics of Regal.
    • (Old) Chubby Worsted - 100% SW Merino 4-ply, 219 yards. the exact same as our newer version, but with a less soft yarn and larger circumference skein. Made by a different mill.
    • Baby Aran - 80/20 SW Merino/Baby Alpaca 2-ply, 191 yards - this yarn has a gorgeous tight twist with the added warmth and comfort of Alpaca. Not a soft as our other bases. We love it, but its more expensive to stock so we only offer it by special request.
    • Pearl sock: 100% Superwash Punta Arenas Merino, 2ply yarn High Twist 437 yards/100g skein. This is the same fiber content as our Pearl DK, with a tight twist that looks like a string of pearls.
    • Bouncy DK - 100% Ultra Fine (19 micron) SW Merino 3-ply, 246 yards. Another DK base that we are in love with. This base Is round and exactly like the name suggests, ultra bouncy! The 3-ply nature of this yarn makes it a great choice for DK weight socks, but it is incredibly soft and will work for almost any project.Making it inactive because it is so similar to Pearl DK, and we only need one of these.
