Meet Bruce from Canon Hand Dyes, a wonderful 3-ply smooth base of superwash merino and yak. The yak in this yarn gives the colors this yarn an amazing softness and a rich depth of color! At 435 yards per skein, it is ideal for a scrumptiously cozy pair of socks or a super soft and luxurious next-to-skin accessory.  Amy Lee designed a palette of 12 fall inspired jewel tones especially for this base to highlight the uniqueness of the special yarn.

candy skein yummy fingering

Last week a beautiful shipment of Yummy Fingering from Candy Skein arrived!  Tami from Candy Skein worked with a mill to create the base for Yummy Fingering, so it is exclusive for her!  At 463 yards each skein has a lot of yardage, but still has a nice body to it - not too thin.  It has been super popular for multi-color projects because the tonal palette works really well together.  And each color also looks equally good by itself.  It's a blend of 75/25 Superwash Merino and Nylon, so it would be strong enough for a pair of socks, and soft enough for a next-to-skin accessory.  Come in to feel for yourself!
