We are thrilled to be the first local yarn shop in Connecticut to bring YOTH Yarns (aka "Yarn on the House") to this area...and, for the first time, online!
Note: Since the closing of their dye house in Maine last year, the team at YOTH Yarns has been working hard to recreate this yarn with a new partner. As of March 2020, they have offered five colors, all of which we currently have in stock: Shiitake, Oyster, Blueberry, Mint, and Peach. Other colors will be added to our inventory as they become available from YOTH. We thank you for your patience with this beautiful yarn!
Fiber Content: 75% Cotton, 25% Domestic Wool
Best Friend: Light fingering weight, Approximately 550 yds
We introduce YOTH's beautiful blended 4-ply yarn of 75% cotton & 25% wool. This yarn is the perfect companion for the warm summer months, but has just the right amount of wool for elasticity and comfort of knitting. YOTH developed this light fingering weight yarn base to not only transition nicely between seasons, but to have a lot of character and zest. The yarn is spun with a thick-thin look and little slubs throughout to give it an earthy almost raw silk vibe, while being cotton affordable. The base yields 550 yds to 100 grams and goes far!
YOTH had it dyed for the wool portion of the blend, which creates a multi-dimensional feel and complexity in the colors. They chose 9 favorites from their current three palettes and of course left an undyed natural: Cracked Pepper, Shiitake, Oyster, Blueberry, Mint, Olive, Ginger Root, Mango, Peach & Natural Vanilla (the undyed). The softened, heathered versions of their original colors are sure to become new favorites.
The unique dye process of this yarn does mean that there will be some remaining excess dye in the yarn. YOTH chose not have this yarn over processed by double washing to keep the product as eco-friendly as possible. As the item is washed and worn the excess dye will come out and slightly heather and fade the item further over time, adding to the character of this yarn. We recommend that you are careful in combining this yarn with others in multi-color projects due to the nature.
YOTH yarns are lovingly dyed in small batches to mimic the look of hand dyed yarns. Some colors may have more variegation than others and we recommend alternating skeins on larger projects as you would with a hand dyed yarn.
