Yarn Bases

This page gives you an overview of all the yarn bases I offer. A ‘yarn base’ is the type of fiber, weight, and ply (e.g. Merino, DK, 4 ply) independent of any color. You can order all colorways that I have available on most yarn bases listed below. Some of them are in stock and ready to ship, others I dye to order.

In-stock yarns usually ship within 1-2 business days, dye-to-order ships within 5-10 business days. Sometimes dye-to-order can take longer than that, in which case I will be in touch with an update by when it will be ready. If your order combines in-stock and dye-to-order yarn, it ships once everything is ready.

Are you looking for a fiber I don’t have listed here? Maybe a single-ply Merino with 10% linen? Or maybe some tweed? Get in touch!
