Squishy, lofty, plump, little Owl is made from a blend of American wool and alpaca. It's spun and dyed in New England and knits up between 4½ to 5 stitches per inch, the perfect weight for just about everything.
Owl Tweet is a lot like our pretty Owl. It's soft, lofty, and light and just like the other bird, it knits up between 4½ to 5 stitches per inch. The difference? Tweet has little nubs of soft wool that pop here and there from the background. We love its tweedy, rustic texture in everything from garter stitch to cables.
Piper is our pretty little southern bird. We sourced the softest super fine kid mohair we could find from a Texas herd of angora goats and blended it with super fine Texas merino to make a lighter-than-air, almost lace weight single-ply yarn. Piper has a pretty halo and a subtle sheen, thanks to the long, silky fibers of the mohair. Knit it on a larger needle if you want. It fills in nicely. Great in sweaters, hats, and, of course, shawls.
Ibis is a big sister to our laceweight Piper. A 2-ply bulky weight comprised of the same Texas-sourced 50% super kid mohair, 50% superfine merino content, Ibis boasts the same gorgeous halo, sheen, and silky softness, in a luscious heavier weight that's quick to knit and super warm. Perfect for accessories and sweaters that are meant to keep the cold at bay. For ample warmth and a luxurious fabric that needs to be worn to be believed, we recommend a gauge of 2.5–2.75 stitches per inch on size US 11 (8 mm) to US 13 (9 mm).
Soft and skinny is our wispy Tern, a blend of wool and tussah silk. The yarn's muted palette - think vintage painted photographs - results from the way in which the different fibers absorb dye. The wool portion colors thoroughly, but the silk is barely tinted. It's good for socks, scarves, mitts, hats, and any sweater that loves a little drape.
Soft and skinny is our wispy Tern, a blend of wool and tussah silk. These limited-edition 100g skeins are naturally hand-dyed with indigo in Maine by Jody McKenzie Harris to create those beautiful blue hues.
As with all hand-dyes, there is variation from skein to skein, and it is recommended to alternate skeins throughout your project. And as is particular to indigo, the dyes may transfer to your hands and needles as you work with the yarn—a process known as crocking, wherein excess dye rubs off from contact and friction. This is a facet of working with indigo-dyed fibers and is not a defect. We suggest taking care during knitting to avoid transfer of the dye on other items.
