Yarn Bases

Single Baad Mom

Like all single moms have to be, this is a versatile and exciting yarn that will have you dreaming of ways to use it. This is a singles construction yarn, spun nicely from springy superwash merino in a high twist.  The single construction has become very popular for sock knitters!  That's because this yarn doesn't pill, and it is spun from my mill's quality and very springy superwash merino.

Rebel With A Cause

This 80/10/10 blend of springy superwash merino with cashmere and nylon is a perfectly soft yarn which performs well. Cashmere and nylon are both slippery fibers, and this blend highlights the best features of these fibers without the natural pilling which occurs when slippery fibers are blended together. And superwash merino is the perfect partner for this pair! The result is a texture that is evident in the knitted fabric. Absolutely a delight to knit with!

Baad Mom Sock

The best of the best ... this yarn has an almost perfect 2-Ply Merino twist added to nylon. A blend of 80% springy superwash merino with 20% nylon, you will find that this yarn will behave beautifully as the two firmly twisted plies plump up against each other, and wear even better with the nylon added.

Strong yet softly tactile sock yarns for you to add to your stash!

Warrior Mom

This is my idea of the perfect knitting yarn! This 4-PLY bouncy superwash yarn is a versatile weight and great for sweaters, shawls, or any clothing article. If you like to knit a thicker sock, this yarn is for you. If you are a sweater knitter, but don't like a heavy fabric -- with a slight gauge adjustment -- the sweater you knit with this yarn will become your favorite.

  • Yardage / weight per skein: 231 yds (211 m) / 100 g (3.5 oz)

Natural Mom

The twist in this base makes it a nicely round and dense yarn.  Natural Mom is an excellent choice for garment knitting and will felt when put to the test. Non-superwash merino in worsted weight is the go-to yarn for sweater knitters who know about the natural fulling effect that comes with wear and washing over time.

And, this is it: the go-to yarn. Knit a sweater from Natural Mom and you will create a warm and cozy garment that will last for years. The Merino is spun from fibers with bounce and spring from Merino sheep who live in the lowlands of the mountains.
