I dye three-season wool yarns (wool, cashmere, mohair blends) and summer yarns (cotton, linen and silk) in six different weights. These are the actual yarns I use for my own knitting, and they reflect my preference for plump, round yarns (most are 3-ply), wool that is next-to-skin soft, and production that's gentle on the environment.

All but one of my yarns are grown and/or spun in the United States or Canada, which helps to keep their economic and environmental footprint as close to my home as possible. I dye both non-superwash and superwash bases and believe both have a place in a knitter's stash and for different knitted items.

When making garments, I lean toward using and recommending non-superwash yarns because the yarn retains memory of its original crimp, which helps it spring back into shape after washing and wearing. For socks and shawls, I recommend superwash yarns for easy care and well-defined lace and texture.

Below are details about each of my yarn bases, as well as their provenance:
