Yarn and Fiber Guide

We understand that it can sometimes get a bit confusing keeping track of your yarn, so we've made up this handy little guide that includes fiber content, weight, yardage, and washing instructions for all yarn bases that we offer! As long as you know what line of yarn your particular yarn belongs to, you can come here and find the information you need for your next project!

 

Sock-weight yarns

Heirloom Luxe

50/50 Superwash Merino Wool / Silk
Sock/Fingering Weight
4-ply - 100 grams - 437 yards
Machine wash cold delicate or hand wash. Lay flat to dry.

This yarn is a great "workhorse" yarn. Merino wool contributes its softness and warmth to your finished object, while silk provides strength and durability. This yarn is a good choice for almost every project - from hats, scarves, and shawls all the way down to socks, this yarn should stand the test of time. 

Glittering Luxe

75/20/5 Superwash Merino Wool / Nylon / Stellina
Sock/Fingering Weight
4-ply - 100 grams - 437 yards
Machine wash cold delicate or hand wash. Lay flat to dry.

Glittering Luxe is a scoopful of stars! Much like our Heirloom Luxe yarn base, the merino wool provides softness and warmth while nylon provides strength and durability. The Stellina provides a hint of glam without being overwhelming. This yarn does not have as much drape as our Heirloom Luxe or our Superfly Comfort Singles lines, but it is not stiff, either. This yarn base would work well for hats, gloves, cowls, scarves, and socks.  

Superfly Comfort Singles

100% Superwash Merino Wool
Sock/Fingering Weight
Single-ply - 100 grams - 400 yards
Machine wash cold delicate or hand wash. Lay flat to dry.

Single-ply yarn is super squishy and soft. It is light and delicate, like a wispy cloud in the sky. Anything that needs a soft drape, this yarn is absolutely perfect for. We would not recommend this yarn for socks, as single-ply wool alone would not have the durability needed to stand up to the harsh conditions of footwear. However, this yarn would be wonderful for shawls, shrugs, scarves, cowls, hats, or handwarmers. 

Majestic Sock Blanks

75/25 Superwash Merino Wool / Nylon
Sock/Fingering Weight
4-ply - 100 grams - 463 yards
Machine wash cold delicate or hand wash. Lay flat to dry.


Yarn blanks are unique in that they do not need to be wound into a ball - you work straight from the blank, starting at one end. These yarn blanks are a Merino/Nylon blend for softness and strength. The designs on yarn blanks will break up into fun patterns in your work, and gradient blanks give you a chance to see the full gradient, from one end to the other. We recommend these blanks much as we do our Heirloom Luxe yarn base: it's a good staple workhorse yarn great for everything head-to-toe, hat-to-sock.  



DK Weight Yarns

Heirloom Loft

55/45 Superwash Blue Faced Leicester Wool / Silk
DK Weight
4-ply - 100 grams - 232 yards
Machine wash cold delicate or hand wash. Lay flat to dry.

Heirloom loft is the bigger, fluffier cousin of our Heirloom Luxe sock-weight yarn! Superwash Blue Faced Leicester wool provides warmth and silk provides strength. This yarn is great for hats, cowls, scarfs, handwarmers, gloves - anything that can use a bigger, fluffier yarn



Handspun Yarns

DK Weight

 
You will need to check the individual listing for any given handspun yarn for specific fiber content and weight/wraps-per-inch, as each handspun yarn is unique and OOAK. The durability and drape of any given yarn will depend on the fiber content of that specific handspun yarn.
