This year I am doing a yarn of the month!!! Yay!!

I don't know about you, but I love to read! I've been slowly collecting a very special series and I want to begin reading them.  So I decided to do a color way that will coordinate with the cover of the book! So not only will I have socks that match but I will also take the time to read this classic book! 

Interested yet?

The series I am going to be using this year is the Puffin Hardcover Classics! Over the last year or so I've seen people collecting them on Instagram so I started my own collection. So many good books that I remember reading when I was much younger. 

The first book I'm starting with is Black Beauty by Anna Sewell (ISBN13: 9780141334882 in case you want your own copy!!). This is in no particular order, just whatever I feel like reading at the time. 

The yarn will ONLY be available for the month of January (or until stock runs out). 


This listing is for a beautiful skein of self striping yarn in a fingering weight. It is hand dyed by me with professional acid dyes. I use citric acid and each skein is steamed or heat set to set the dye and also washed in cool/cold water with Bijou Basin Allure. I do my absolute best to ensure there is no additional dye run off, however depending on how you care for your yarn and knitted things, results can vary.

Dreamy Base

75% Superwash Merino / 15% Nylon / 10% Tencel

Approximately 433 Yards Fingering Weight

4 Ply

Approximately 115 grams

All self stripping yarns are dyed in sets, so there “may” be a slight variation between batches . I take all measures to avoid differences but after all, I am human, and science isn’t always perfect :) Also, different bases may take color differently and containers of the actual dye can vary from container to container.

Hand wash in cool water with wool wash. I use Bijou Basin Allure, but just make sure its made for wool for lasting knits.

Superwash is made to be able to wash in a washing machine and dried in a dryer. However for best results, I recommend hand washing, or at least laying flat to dry. This preserve the life of the yarn.

Please know that I do have cats and dogs in my home. They are not around the things I sell however I cannot guarantee that there won’t be a hair found in the item from just being on my person. Or for that matter one of my own hairs.. LOL. So if you are highly allergic to either cats or dogs, please take caution.

I do my best to represent the yarn in photos. All photos are taken in natural light, however all monitors vary in color. If you absolutely dislike the skein you receive, please contact me for a resolution prior to caking the yarn.

Do you have questions or did I miss something? Please send me a message and I'll happily reply as soon as I can (usually the same day)!

Happy Knitting!!
