Our Yarn Bases

50% Yak & 50% Mulberry Silk⎜ fingering ⎜415 yards  
Thoreau offers the fine hand and bloom of Yak fiber, along with the strength and luster of Mulberry Silk. This base blooms to create a clean full stitch definition while retaining a clean diameter around the yarn (minimizing halo). Unlike many yarns with such a deliciously soft hand, Thoreau achieves a superb stitch definition which accommodates lace as beautifully as stockinette. This base offers lightweight warmth in the coldest Winter months, and at a more open gauge it is a perfect choice for an airy wrap in the Fall and Spring seasons.
  • LINEA 
90% SW Fine Merino & 10% Cashmere⎜fingering⎜390 yards
Linea is a singles yarn that raises the already luscious hand of fine merino with the warmth and luxurious softness of cashmere. The fiber ratio was thoughtfully selected to maximize softness without sacrificing strength. Linea is carefully milled with a precise twist formula that prevents pilling without introducing bias or kinks into your stitches, yielding gorgeous stitch definition and the most lovely upon-the-skin fabrics.
70% SW Fine Merino, 10% Cashmere, 10% Camel, 10% Mulberry Silk⎜sport⎜354 yards
Caravan is the yarn base that allows you to unapologetically have your cake and eat it too…From it’s conception I asked for a lot from Caravan:  1) I wanted it to be made exclusively with fine natural fibers, 2) I wanted it to sing luxury from the first touch and continue to delight with every delicious stitch, and 3) I wanted it to be a yarn without borders, ideal for any project, even the hardest wearing projects (sweaters and socks). The combination of fine merino, cashmere, camel, and mulberry silk provides the hand I dreamed of. The unique mill construction provides the strength. And as a sport weight yarn that leans toward light sport it also offers welcome versatility, being a perfectly good choice for both sport weight and fingering weight projects. Ultimately, Caravan is a yarn that boasts the ability to be sweet and strong without compromise.
