Superwash Merino Wool Base Yarns

I'm pleased to offer several weights of 100% superwash merino wool yarn, each handdyed with light- and wash-fast professional dyes.

My current yarns are:

Fey - fine fingering weight

PaloVerde in Fey
This versatile yarn is wonderful to work with. It is two plies of tightly twisted superwash merino. Each generous skein is approximately 4 ounces (110 grams) in weight and contains about 490 yards (450 meters) of yarn. Compare our yardage to others, and you'll be plesantly surprised. More than enough for a pair of socks - this yarn would also be fantastic for scarves, shawls, or any next-to-the-skin garment.

Recommended Needle Size: US0-3

Hand or machine wash gently in cool water.

Sylph
- fine fingering weight

Manzanita in Bloom in Sylph
This versatile yarn is wonderful to work with. It is two plies of softly twisted superwash merino. Each generous skein is approximately 4 ounces (110 grams) in weight and contains over 500 yards (457 meters) of yarn. Compare our yardage to others, and you'll be pleasantly surprised. More than enough for a pair of socks - this yarn would also be fantastic for scarves, shawls, or any next-to-the-skin garment.

Recommended Needle Size: US0-3

Hand or machine wash gently in cool water.

Fey vs Sylph:


PaloVerde in Fey and Sylph
Both of these yarns are fantastically soft and are perfect for next to the skin garments. Because of its tighter twist, Fey has a thinner appearance. You may be able to observe the difference in the image on the left - Fey is the top yarn and Sylph is the the one on the bottom. Both yarns are wonderful to work with and it's truly your preference as to which one you prefer.

Naiad
- fingering weight

Limited Edition Ocean Deep in Naiad
This beautiful yarn is wonderfully soft, yet a little bit more durable than my other yarns, complements of the fine nylon that is blended in with the superwash merino wool. It is three plies of moderately twisted 80% superwash merino and 20% fine nylon. Each skein is approximately 4 ounces (110 grams) in weight and contains over 420 yards (384 meters) of yarn. Perfect for a pair of socks - this yarn would also be fantastic for scarves, shawls, or any next-to-the-skin garment.

Sidhe

CoffeePot Rock in Sidhe
This beautiful yarn is super squishy, lofty and wonderful to work with. It is three plies of moderately twisted superwash merino. Each skein is approximately 4 ounces (110 grams) in weight and contains over 375 yards (343 meters) of yarn.

Each of my hand dyed skeins is individually dyed. Please note that color saturation on hand dyed yarns often vary, even within the same dying session, though care is taken to match colors on repeat colorways. If you are at all concerned with color pooling while working on your project, I recommend alternating rows on your work while working from both ends of the skein.
