DDD Yarn Bases

I dye premium non-wool yarns - various silk blends and bamboos. I don't have anything against wool or other animal fibers, it's just that the processes I use are only appropriate for silk and vegetable fibers. My lineup includes fifteen different yarn bases in seven families.

My yarn bases are named so they're easy to decipher and understand. The first part of the name describes the fiber the yarn is made of. This is the family. The second part, in curly brackets, describes the weight of the yarn. TL is an exception - it was my first base and does not have a weight descriptor in its name.

TussaLin (TL) - $32.00
Light fingering/heavy lace, 65% Tussah Silk, 35% Linen, 756y/691m/4oz
Wild silk and fluffy linen, rustic, with a matte finish, very soft for linen, knits up light as air and holds a block beautifully. TL is not strong enough to be used as a warp in weaving. Spun in Canada.
:: ALERT! TL is very toothy and notoriously tricky to cake.
If you're concerned about doing it yourself, I will cake it for you for a nominal fee.
