About our yarn
We sell hand dyed self striping primarily. Stacie the owner and dyer tried bases from five different mills before setting on what we call our Perfect base. Perfect is a fingering weight 75/25 superwash merino/nylon yarn. It is undeniably soft but has added strength due to the higher nylon content. Additionally, Perfect has 4 plies for bounce, smoothness and strength.

All of our self striping skeins come in our signature put up, the must match set! A Must Match set has two perfectly matched half skeins which start and stop in the same place of the striping sequence for identical knits with no waste. By dyeing the matching halves at the same time, they are identical down to the last stitch! This type of skein was formerly known as OCD before we rebranded our signature put up to a name that is all our own.
The picture below is a Must Match pair in the Dark Side Original colorway. If you look closely, you will notice that where the two ends are tied together that one end is black and the other is orange with just a tiny bit of yellow at the very end. This is a very good example of how close the two half skeins are!
