Choose from the following yarn bases:

Biscotti Sock: This sock yarn blend is 85% Superwash Merino Wool/15% Nylon. It is a soft, 4-ply yarn that is worsted spun which creates a durability that will withstand much wear and tear. If you’re looking for a soft sock blend, this is your winner. Each skein contains approximately 100 grams/437 yards.

Espresso Fingering: This fingering weight base is 100% Superwash Merino Wool 4-ply. This yarn base is wonderful for sweaters due to its softness and ability to drape nicely on the body. It is a worsted spun yarn with 437 yards/100 grams.

Biscotti DK Weight: This 4-ply DK Weight is 85% Superwash Merino Wool/15% Nylon. This yarn base is the same wonderful blend as our popular sock base! Each skein is 245 yards/100 grams.

Café Au Lait Fingering Weight: This superwash fingering weight 4-ply yarn base is 100% Polwarth. This yarn is very similar to Merino wool but is worsted spun from a longer staple fiber. The result is a very soft and durable yarn. The wool comes from the New Zealand Polwarth Sheep, an old sheep breed that is 75% Merino and 25% Lincoln. Great for sweaters, shawls, and socks. There are 437 yards/100 grams.

Café Au Lait Polwarth Wool DK: This 4-ply DK Weight is 100% Superwash Polwarth Wool. This is a very bouncy, high-twist yarn and very durable. Each skein is 245 yards/100 grams.

Whipped Cream Mohair: This lace weight blend of 70% Ultrafine Kid Mohair/30% Mulberry Silk is a great companion to hold double with another weight of yarn. This gives added warmth and softness to your knitted garments. There are 460 yards/50 grams.

I try my best to take photos to accurately represent the colors but since each computer/mobile device displays pictures slightly differently, colors may differ a little in person than what you see on your screen. if you have questions about color/photos, please send me a message. Thanks!

Washing: Machine washable (although, I always recommend hand-washing for best results), lie flat to dry.
