Yarn Bases

Here is the selection of yarn bases you can choose from, including the blend content and nature of the fibers, as well as the yardage and weight. 

 
 

Angkor, single ply

Angkor is an elegant blend of 70% superwash merino, and 30% silk. The silk gives a beautiful drape to fabric, and the blend of springy merino reduces pilling. The higher twist of this yarn adds strength and ensures that the fibers retain their union. This single ply works magnificently in shawls, fine sweaters, and hats.

Single ply, Fingering weight, 438 yds/400 meters, 100g


Tarim, Aran 3 ply

Tarim is a merino, cashmere, nylon blend, 80/10/10. The superwash merino is springy and oh so soft; blended with nylon for added elasticity and strength, while the cashmere adds a final exquisite element that makes this yarn a true delicacy. The base fiber of merino reduces the pilling that sometimes occurs when finer, slippery fibers are blended together. The chunky, springy nature of these plies give a beautiful texture when knitted or crocheted, notably in simple texture stitches and cables.

3 ply, Aran weight, 181 yds/165 meters, 100 g


Koobi Fora, 4 ply

Koobi Fora is a blend of 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon. The merino is luxuriously soft, while the nylon adds strength to the fibers, making this yarn ideal for knitting or crocheting socks, mittens, hats, leg warmers, or any garment that will benefit from extra durability.

Stonehenge, 3 ply

Stonehenge is a 3 ply blend of 20% yak fiber, with 70% superwash merino, and 10% nylon. The naturally dark yak fibers give this yarn so much dimension and adds a complex richness to the colors it takes in. The coat of the yak is composed of three different types of fiber, but only the finest down fiber (often shed in the spring and summer months) is used here. The down ranges between 16-20 microns. Yak down will keep you warmer than sheep wool, is softer than cashmere, and has increased breathability and odor-resistance. This yarn is the perfect combination of luxury and practicality.

3 ply, Fingering weight, 437 yards/399 meters, 100g.


Petra DK

Petra is a 100% Superwash Merino. The luxurious softness of this yarn make it perfect for hats, scarves, mittens, and cozy shawls. Naturally less susceptible to pilling, the sheen of this fiber makes for a beautiful garment that wears well. With enviable drape, and creamy feel as the yarn runs through your fingers, you are sure to find far too many excuses to use this yarn!
