yarn bases

These are the yarn bases we currently carry. They are all 100% sustainably sourced wool, completely plastic free and non superwash. We only choose yarns that tick all the boxes for us and therefore are high quality and sustainable. It it important to us that all animals, humans and natural resources were treated and paid fairly and sustainably during the production process.

limited editions

In addition to our standard base lineup, we also do produce limited edition yarns every now and then which will be completely unique and one of a kind. These yarns are available while supply lasts and will not be repeatable due to various reasons like a limited fibre supply or a very individual production process. The limited editions are very dear to my heart because they let me express my creativity and love for unique fibres and blends and I hope to spark joy in you when working with these very special yarns.
