Our Yarns

Less Traveled Yarn

Less Traveled Yarns are dyed in small batches, typically 2-4 skeins at a time. We do our best to make each batch as similar as possible using our own colorway recipes. That being said, hand-dyed yarns are naturally unique and can vary from batch to batch, particularly depending on the base that is used.

Natural fiber bases tend to have a watercolor-like appearance, and speckles are less defined, whereas our superwash & nylon-blend bases take color more precisely and speckles are more prominent.

If you are working on a project with more than one skein of the same colorway, we recommend alternating skeins between rows.

We will always carry a variety of bases, including various weights & fibers, and a mixture of natural and superwash yarns.

Day Trip Yarns

While we do carry some colorways that will be frequently repeated and featured on multiple bases, we are always trying new colorways and taking inspiration from our surroundings. This results in our "Day Trip Yarn" series, which indicates a one-of-a-kind colorway, which will likely not be repeated.

Caring for Your Hand-Dyed Yarn

We recommend hand-washing all of our yarn with a gentle wool-wash soap. Soaps with lanolin will add softness to any natural or superwash fiber. Please feel free to email for recommendations.
