Fingering Weight Knitting Yarns
Soft Touch Ultra has been a very popular, 3-ply fingering weight yarn; however this yarn is now being retired and I'm now dyeing a Fingering Weight yarn with a 80% merino/20% nylon blend. It is produced from washable Superwash fibre, which makes it very practical for colour work as well as socks and other garments that you wear regularly. 80/20 is the same gauge as our Ultra 100% merino fingering and also the Wool/Nylon Heather yarn, and can be used interchangeably with it in knitting projects.
For a short period I will have some of both the Ultra (100% merino) and the 80/20 fingering weight. If, when ordering, you wish one or the other in particular please indicate that in the note area of the order form. I'll do my best to get you what you need!
Besides Natural White, we produce a wide range of hand-dyed Solid Colourways shown below. This is the identical range of colours as our DKW 4-ply knitting yarn. Colour Sample Cards are available for the Fingering/DKW yarns for $5.00 per card plus shipping.
