The Bases

The bases I use for hand dyeing are produced in either Australia or New Zealand. My preference is to source locally produced merino and alpaca and mixed fibres.

I also have a choice of Superwash or Non-Superwash yarns. When making your purchase please consider the different care requirements of these yarns.


This yarn is super soft and lush. Has a lovely drape and being a superwash yarn is perfect for a variety of projects
