Island Time Merino fingering wt

This super soft 100% superwash Merino Wool is steamed to give a pearly sheen and twisted well to give great durability and bounce. It is the perfect yarn for pretty much anything from hats and gloves to sweaters and scarves. LE = Limited Edition WCM = West Coast Musing

Island Time Merino worsted wt

This Merino wool yarn is a chunky worsted wt that is leaning towards aran wt at 200 yards per 115gm skein. Being superwash, it is easy care....even safe for the washer and dryer ...and with a really tight twist this Merino yarn gives great stitch definition and holds it shape well. Great for knitting up sweaters, hats, scarves, slippers,....and the list goes on! The West Coast Musings (WCM) are the collection of yarns in which I layer the dyes to create unpredictable and wonderful shadings and depths of colour. The tonals have variations in depth of colour throughout the skein - sometimes soft and sometimes strong and is more interesting knit/crocheted up than a solid dyed yarn. Worsted wt 185m/ 200 yards/115 gm skein. 17-20 sts/4" 4.5-5mm It is excellent yarn for knitting, crochet and weaving (warp and weft). LE = Limited Edition WCM = West Coast Musings

The Ultimate Merino Sock Yarn

I am so in love with this sock yarn!!!! The Ultimate Merino Sock Yarn is an awesome soft yet durable yarn base that is similar in thickness to the "Island Time" Merino - with 20% nylon added. It makes a soft and comfy sock. This blend is as soft as the "Island Time" and holds it's shape better for socks ....you'll want a pair for every day.

Tussah Silk Merino Blend

This gorgeous yarn is a 25/75 blend of Tussah silk and the finest Merino wool. The colourways just shimmer in the light with the silk and wool picking up the dye differently making each skein even more unique than usual. The Tussah silk gives a crunchy feel to the yarn while knitting and more body than mulberry silk. Beautiful drape. 390-395yds 95 gms Fingering wt 2.25-3.25mm US3 28sts-32rows/4"

Studio Edition Merino worsted wt

This worsted wt Merino is so soft and knits up beautifully! The twist is gentler than the Island Time worsted wt so is a more relaxed yarn....personally it is my favourite of the worsted :) The colourways are selling faster than I've been able to dye them up ...by late February (possibly sooner) there will be some additional colourways available. The colours will be soft....just like the yarn. Oh and did I mention I'm doing a sweater for myself out of the Ocean Mist :)

Natural dyes on wool

Natural dyes on silk

Natural dyes always look so beautiful on silk ...and these silks are no exception! Handspun wild Muga silk is a low gloss silk that is very fine at 1000m/100gm approximately as all skeins vary in weight. And the uneven spun Italian silk that I have no know yardage on but it is similar the pur silk so between 500 m per 100 gm. Weights of skeins may vary.

Organic Merino Blanket/Wrap

Wrap yourself in a warm loving hug from Mother Nature. The finest Merino wool I have found - hand-dyed with eco-friendly vinegar-exhaust dyes and softly felted for the comfiest and warmest blanket you may every experience! Dimensions 36 x 60" with generous twisted fringe....perfect for meditation, sarvasana (even covers your toes!) or just relaxing in front of the fire with a good book, The softness makes the blanket extra comfy and means gentle care of the blanket as it will pill with abrasion. It will felt more if put in the regular wash and dry cycle - so please care for this blanket as you would with all heirloom wool items to keep it lasting beautifully for years to come! I call it a blanket as it makes me feel like going to sleep but is a great size for an ample shawl as well.
