Log Cabin Fiber Bases

80/20 SW Sock Yarn

Our Sock yarn is a wonderfully soft super-wash merino/nylon mix for amazing feel in the hand and wonderfully resilient finished objects.  Perfect for socks, shawls, baby and toddler clothes and even adult sweaters that are going to be washed over and over. This yarn loves our dyes, and you'll find the brightest colours in this line. Next-to-skin soft - I love this yarn!!

100% SW Merino Fingering

Our super-wash Merino Fingering yarn is as soft as the Sock version but not as dense, although it knits up at the same gauge.  This 2 ply, looser twist gives projects more of a texture, making it perfect for sweaters and shawls.  Due to the nature of merino, it has an amazing ability to bounce back to it's original shape with little help.  This yarn also takes dye well, while the looser twist gives it a softer overall look.  While it too is next-to-skin soft, it doesn't have quite the smoothness as Sock due to not having the nylon. 

100% Blue Faced Leicester Fingering 

Our 100% BFL is untreated, meaning not super-wash.  This yarn has a natural yellowy shade, softening the colours applied.  Dyes love to blend on this yarn, meaning speckles are softer, colours are more muted.  It's twist is similar to the merino fingering, however BFL is a straighter hair, meaning it has more drape and less spring - also known as less natural ability to hold it's shape. It's got a more wooly hand than merino.  Perfect for sweaters and shawls where drape is desired.  Almost next-to-skin soft but I'd try a small project before committing to a sweater.
