Fingering-weight yarns are extremely popular for knitting socks but they have a multitude of other uses. Consider a shawl, gloves, mittens or lovely soft scarf. Some of the interesting new fibres such as bamboo, soy and corn are appearing in fingering weight, by themselves or in blends with wool and other fibres. Generally these make for a relatively fast knit, and there are loads of one-skein projects that make for a minor time commitment. Ideal for knitted gifts. We offer several different bases.

Bamboogie Natural – 1-Lb Value Pack
Bamboogie Natural – 1-Lb Value Pack
80% Rayon from Bamboo / 20% Superwash Merino wool. Fingering weight, 4-ply. Approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 431m (472yd). Gauge: 2-3.25mm needles. 6 to 8 stitches = 1 inch, or as pattern requires. Laundering: Handwash cool, hang or dry flat. The same base yarn we use for our Bamboogie™ line. Absolutely fantastic lustre and a beautiful soft hand are the main features of this yarn. It shows stitch definition very well. Nice for warmer weather wear. This yarn is somewhat tricky to dye, because of the two very different fibres. Fibre reactive dyes will work great, but we use acid dyes ourselves. Because the acid dyes only strike on the wool, the final effect is pastel and subtly heathered. When using acid dyes be prepared to do copious amounts of rinsing to get rid of excess dye that lurks but doesn't strike on the bamboo! Dyed colourways of Bamboogie are listed under Yarns > Dyeguy PRODUCT of CANADA   Price for 4 skeins, approximately 115g each. A 15% savings on our regular price.

Leicester-Foot Natural – 1-Lb Value Pack
Leicester-Foot Natural – 1-Lb Value Pack
80% Superwash Blue-faced Leicester wool / 20% Nylon. Fingering weight, 3-ply. Approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 372m (407yd). Gauge: 2.25-3.25mm needles. 6 to 8 stitches = 1 inch, or as pattern requires. Laundering: Machine wash cool, tumble dry on low, hang or dry flat. Similar to the base yarn we use for our Socky-talky line, but using long-staple BFL wool instead of Merino. The spin is smooth and soft, yet with the nylon component it offers the durability needed for socks and active wear. Truly a workhorse fingering weight yarn! Because of the superwash wool this is not suitable for felting. This yarn takes dye beautifully, whether you are using acid dyes, food colouring, Kool-aid or even natural dyes. Just bear in mind that Superwash yarn strikes with acid dyes so quickly that it can be very tricky to get a decent solid tone. Use that to your advantage like we do, to get interesting semi-solids or go crazy with hand painting. We highly recommend this yarn to first-time dyers! PRODUCT of CANADA Price for 4 skeins, approximately 115g each. A 15% savings on our regular price.
