When your order ships you’ll receive a notification that your order is on its way, with a tracking number. Skeins may vary from dye batch to dye batch, as is typical with handmade goods. We do our best to have a consistent dye lot when ordering more than one skein at a time.

We use professional-grade acid dyes in a pet-free, smoke-free studio. We recommend hand washing and laying flat to dry. While super wash yarn can be machine washed and dried, your creation will last longer with gentle care.

Will my yarn bleed?
Maybe! We rinse dyed yarn until the water runs clear in cold water. Sometimes warm water or well water will interact with the dye differently. We recommend washing your swatch how you will be washing your finished object to see if there will be any bleeding. If there is, rinse until water is clear. We do our best to knock all the excess dye off.

Single Fingering
Shimmering silken single sexiness. This is a single-ply, superwash merino wool that looks and feels oh, so good. The single ply nature of the yarn means that it shines, and it’s great for accessories, particularly shawls and cowls.

Non-Super Wash Fingering
Four tight plies of spring-loaded merino, perfect for garments and highlighting textures, color work, lace, or cables.

If you’re looking for sock-knitting nirvana, you’ve found it in this sheep-to-skein US-produced sock yarn. With a tight twist, and just the right amount of nylon, you’ll find that your socks practically knit themselves, and our inspiring sprinkle colors mean you won’t be content with just one skein. Or three. Or seventeen.

Sport is a 3-ply dream of a super wash merino, equally delicious in garments and accessories.

A round, squishy, bouncy, soft, and very hearty yarn, Victory DK is produced sheep-to-skein in the US. It’s superwash, so it’s perfect for baby garments and boot socks, and it’s fabulous, so it’s perfect for adult sweaters and accessories.

Soft. Shiny. Bouncy. This is the worsted you’ve been looking for. Ideal for accessories, a dream for garments, and it’s superwash, to boot.

The perfect quick-knit accessory yarn, with a great drape and soft hand.

Fairy Floss
Magical, airy, and oh, so fluffy, Fairy Floss is our new favorite thing. A lace-weight silk and mohair blend, this yarn takes our colors like a magical dream.

Summer Slubbin'
This slub. yarn is so much fun! Use it in simple projects or weaving and watch it shine.

Giddy Up
This tightly-plied super wash Targhee is the perfect mix of soft and rustic. Great for garments and accessories.
