Yarn Bases

SOCK YARNS:

Squirm Sock

Squirm Sock is our favorite yarn base when it comes to bouncy, soft and luxurious yarn. The blend of 80% extra fine merino and 20% nylon makes it next to skin soft and sturdy enough to withstand a good amount of wear.

This high twist sock yarn blooms beautifully and is great for making sweaters, shawls, socks, baby clothes and stuffed toys! It knits up like a dream and we keep going back to this base for pretty much every project we knit or crochet. When using this yarn to crochet it gives your project some extra oomph, thanks to the super springy high twist.

All our current bases are sourced from non mulesing breeders.
All of our yarn is dyed in our smoke free and pet friendly home in Amsterdam (we have 2 cats, who are not allowed in the dye studio). We check our yarn for quality (and quantity) and if you have any remarks on your skeins, please do let us know.

While some of our our bases are superwash treated, and can withstand machine cleaning up to 40°C, we do advise you to hand wash all items with a mild wool specific detergent (like Tuft Sock Soap) to keep them in your life as long as possible.

Though we take care to make sure our photo's on the site match reality, slight differences in the actual color of the yarn are possible compared to the images you see here because of how your monitor is calibrated.

Retired Bases

We're phasing out some bases, which means they might still be available on the site. and from time to time you will see some stragglers in our old bases pop up. We will mention if a skein is from a retired base and will not be restocked.
