Feet First Yarn



This tightly spun 100% Superwash Merino / 2 ply high twist / 18 wpi yarn was our initial hand-dyed base, first crafted over 10 years ago.  Our initial base has changed slightly, and we have now finished dyeing our "legacy" stock.  

Historically, we have dyed OOAK (One Of A Kind) colorways.  Our customers have gotten excited knowing their project will not look exactly like anyone else's.  We will be adding repeatable colorways in the near future - look for those by name. 

In addition to knitting socks and lace shawls, our customers have used this yarn for crochet, needlework, tassel making, braiding, jewelry, paper-art embellishments, and multi-media endeavors. 

In order of appearance below

please note:  yarn used to be labeled as 23 wpi by mfg - some tags do not reflect the more accurate 18 wpi yet - for a insight into the entire wpi vs yarn weight dilemma, please refer to this page in my Notebook
