Bases

Brae BFL

 Fingering Weight High Twist 

80% SW Bluefaced Leicester
20% Nylon

100 grams / 400 yards

Price: $31.00

Brae is a blend of gorgeous BFL and nylon. Bluefaced Leicester is a very lustrous and strong wool that takes color incredibly well. Of all my bases, the colors look the richest on Brae! Though not as soft as merino, this yarn has lots of loft and bounce. If you're knitting something that will get a lot of wear, such as a cardigan, pullover, mitts, or socks, this yarn will be a great choice!

 

Shilling 

Silk Merino Singles

Fingering Weight
70% SW Merino
30% Silk

438 yards / 100 grams

Price: $31.00

Shilling is a smooth and lustrous wool and silk blend in a singles construction. The silk adds a delicate and almost metallic shimmer, resulting in incredibly vibrant shades when dyed. A great choice for those small little indulgent knits like fingerless mitts or delicate cowls, or for projects that require drape and movement, like lace shawls or tops.

Fife

4-ply Fingering Weight

100% Superwash Merino

438 yards / 100 grams

Price: $28.00

 Fife is one of the very first bases I started carrying, and it is still a favorite with my customers. So soft it's hard to believe there isn't any cashmere in it! A perfect yarn for shawls, as it has a lovely drape.

 

Fir

 Fingering Weight Singles

100% Superwash Merino

400 yards / 100 grams

Price: $28.00

Merino Singles is a brand new base I have fallen deeply in love with. It is a super soft singles yarn that feels so luxurious. This would be perfect for a special hat, some soft mitts, or a delicate shawl. Because it is so incredibly soft, I would not recommend this yarn for garments that will need to endure a lot of wear, such as long-sleeved sweaters or socks.

 

Fuzz

4-ply Fingering Weight

55% Superwash Merino

20% Kid Mohair

25% Nylon

Price: $30.00

A fingering weight yarn that is soft, warm, and also strong -- no one wants socks that pill after the first wearing. Kid Mohair (the "fuzz") is an incredibly unique animal fiber that adds warmth and strength to fabric. The little fuzzy fibers create an insulating halo that hugs your skin and also prevents pilling. The more you wear and touch it, the fuzzier it gets -- without damaging the fabric!

Cabin DK

DK Weight

80% Extra Fine SW Merino
10% Cashmere (yum!)
10% Nylon

240 yards / 100 grams

Price: $30.00

My Cabin base is a super soft blend of superwash Merino, cashmere, and nylon. It absorbs dye beautifully, resulting in rich, glowing shades. A perfect choice for projects you'll wear again and again. Imagine a beautiful cabled hat, a cozy pullover, or a cozy cowl in this yarn! It's a DK Weight, but depending on your gauge, this yarn, with its 240 yards, could also work in worsted weight projects.
