Yarn Base

I use a variety of different Yarn Base to dye my yarn imported from overseas. Find bellow a non exhaustive list of my most commonly used yarn bases.

 ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

SURIEAL:

Surieal is a stunning lace ply wool, composed of 76% Brushed Baby Suri Alpaca & 26% Mulberry Silk. Just imagine the belly of a kitten, or a baby fuzzy bunny, and there you have it: the softest wool there is. It is so delicate yet strong due to the silk content & incredibly soft. It is also hypoallergenic, so most people with a sensitivity to mohair can actually knit with this wool! And it shed substantially less than mohair would. It is, in essence, perfect.
Surieal comes from the UK and has 300m per 50gr.
It is retailed at 40$ per 50gr

 

 

ANGEL LACE:

Probably one of the softest and most versatile yarn in the shop, this luxury lace weight blend of 50% Baby Suri Alpaca, 30% extra-fine merino & 20% silk is an essential in any knitter's stash. With a whooping 1200m per 100gr, you can hold a strand of this lace with any project to reach your needed ply, and to add the ultimate softener. Une one strand with a DK to get a 10ply for example, or hold it double with the DK for a 12ply! You could even hold it double on it's own and you'd still get 600m of fingering weight! There is no limit to what this yarn can do, and I for one always have one on hand! 
Angel Lace comes from the UK and has 1200m per 100gr.
It is retailed at 50$ per 100gr

 

 

MERVEILLE:

Merveille is also an absolute staple, especially if you like a soft yarn and speckles! This is our 100% Merino single ply SW. It is a fingering weight, and honestly probably the best yarn base to show colours & speckles. This has been my favourite yarn base to dye since I started doing so in 2017 and I will never get tired of using it!

Merveille comes from the UK and has 360m per 100gr.
It is retailed at 38$ per 100gr

  

SMITTEN LINEN:

Smitten Linen is a stunning single ply yarn made of 90% Superwash Merino and 10% Linen. The added Linen is dye resistant and adds a beautiful texture, light drape & contrast to the finished colour. The single ply knits as a fingering weight and is delicate, it is fine to knit most garment with, although will pill for high rubbing garment such as socks, so it isn't meant for this purpose. Instead, choose it for your shawls and sweaters! Smitten Linen comes from the UK and has 360m per 100gr. It is retailed at 38$ per 100gr

 

 

CLASSIC 4ply :

A classic dyers staple, CLASSIC 4ply is a 100% superifine merino 4ply machine wash yarn with a 3 ply high twist. This yarn is imported from the UK and it's price reflects the cost of import. It is perfect for almost every garment except Socks or high wear and tear knits. Has an amazing natural bounce and elasticity and is the most merino you'll land your hands on with only 19.5 micron! Sold at 100gr with 400m per skein. It is retailed at 38$ per 100gr

 

SWEET SOCK:

Sweet Sock is in my opinion the best sock option out of all the base. It is a beautiful 75% Merino SW, 25% Nylon, with a delicate 2ply construction which gives beautiful stitch finish. It is the exact same base as SPARKLE SOCK without the silver stellina. It is super super duper soft, and has the more metrage of all options as well. It is imported from the UK and has 425m per 100gr. It is retailed at $38 a skein

 

SPARKLE SOCK:

Sparkle Sock is a beautiful high twist sock base with a 2ply construction. It is made with 75% Merino Superwash, 20% Nylon and 5% Silver Stellina which gives this base a lovely glittery spark. It is extremely soft (one of the softest base) and grabs the dye beautifully. It come from the UK and has 400m per 100gr. It is retailed at 38$ per skein.

 



CLASSIC 8ply :

A classic dyers staple, CLASSIC 8ply is a 100% superfine merino DK machine wash yarn with a 3 ply high twist. This yarn is imported from the UK and it's price reflects the cost of import. It is perfect for almost every garment except Socks or high wear and tear knits. Has an amazing natural bounce and elasticity and is the most merino you'll land your hands on with only 19.5 micron!
Sold at 100gr with 225m per skein. It is retailed at 38$ per 100gr

SWANKY DK:

Swanky DK is a luxurious and absolute stunner of a yarn base! It is made with 50% Baby Alpaca, 25% Silk & 25% Linen and is a DK with a 2ply construction.
The Linen and the Silk give this base a dramatic drape, with the silk adding sheen and the linen a beautiful rustic touch. The Baby Alpaca then comes in to soften the final product and create a yarn base that is just delightfully soft, drapy & robust all at once. It is Non-Superwash and Organic, and with 25% of linen resisting the dye, will absorb colours lighter and not display speckles finely. I mostly dye this base in semi-solid and it is ideal for sweater quantity.
Swanky Linen comes from the UK and has 250m per 100gr.
It is retailed at 42$ a skein.
