Yarn Bases

Here's a quick run down of our yarn bases.  Not sure what yarn to get?  I'm available for questions via email, and try to answer as quickly as I can!

Regularly Available Bases--This list is my usual bases.  I will typically dye at least one skein of each of these when I dye a batch of any particular colorway.

Additional Info:  Photon, Displacement and Crystal all have the tight, springing two ply that you may know and love from my Inertia base, with different fiber contents to suit your needs.  Wear out your socks quickly?  I'd try the Displacement base.  The long staple of the BFL is better suited to deal with high abrasion with a minimum of wear and tear.

Semi-Retired Bases--These bases are on their way out.  I still have skeins in each of them that need to be dyed, but unless I get a lot of requests for them, these bases will be discontinued when I run out.

Discontinued By Me--These bases have been removed from my yarn line for various reasons, but I can still order the yarn from the manufacturer.  If you want skeins in these bases, a minimum order of 10 skeins (any combination of colors) is required.  Please be aware that I only order yarn 4-5 times per year, and it can take up to 3 months to dye the skeins once I do get the yarn in.  If you have a deadline, I recommend choosing one of my regularly available yarns.  Interested?  Use the "Contact" button to send me an email and we can discuss the details.
