Bamboogie Natural – skein
Bamboogie Natural – skein
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 per skein. Approximately 115g.

Joy of Soy Natural – 1-lb Value Pack
Joy of Soy Natural – 1-lb Value Pack
100% Soy fibre. Fingering weight, 2-ply. Approximately 115g (4.06 oz), 349m (382yd). Gauge: 2.75-3.25mm needles. 6.5 to 7 stitches = 1 inch, or as pattern requires. Laundering: Hand wash cool, dry flat. This is a lovely yarn that would be perfect for summerwear, as an alternative to cotton. It has a softer feel to the hand than cotton but soy shares many of the same properties. It's a relatively thick fingering weight that makes for a fairly quick knit, depending on the project of course. NOTE this yarn has a nubbly texture with random flattened areas that are not obvious until during knitting. Despite this, it holds stitch detail quite well. Soy fibre is made from soybeans, and acts like a protein fibre in the manner it takes up dye. Use regular acid dyes, food colouring, Kool-Aid or natural dyes with the usual mordants. We find this base is absolutely gorgeous in rich jewel tones and also looks great in pastels. It dyes up close-to-solid with very little effort, but hand painting and other techniques would work just fine too. Dyed colourways of Joy of Soy™ 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!

Not as close to "Denim Jacket" as it looks, this is a medium-soft blue overlaid with black for a very moody, broody sort of effect. We did it to expand our range of "guy colours" and it's real handsome.

Haven't we all wanted to knit bumblebee socks?? Glowing yellow is combined with black - well, really a deep midnight green but it looks black from 5 feet away. Not self-striping like a wasp, this will more likely pool like the patterning on a fuzzy bumblebee.
