Yarn 101

Let’s get down to details. Learn everything there is to know about our yarns to help you find the best fit for your project.
Natural vs. Synthetic Fiber

We choose to work exclusively with natural fibers for their luxurious feel and sustainable nature. They’re more breathable and even hold onto dyes better than synthetic fibers; plus, they possess natural anti-bacterial properties.
