Songbird Yarn and Fibres

Yarn Bases

I have moved!  My new site is 

It has better integrated shipping options and a more streamlined look.  You can still order here until the end of April, but after that please come check out my new domain.

Choose from Sock, Lace or Worsted weight.

My sock yarn base is a plump, Super Wash 80% Merino, 20% Nylon fingering weight.  Each skein is approx 390m (420 yds) and 115g (4 oz).

My SW Merino Lace weight is a luxurious, soft merino fine laceweight which is a generous 900m (980yds) per 115g (4oz) skein.

My SW Merino Worsted weight is approx.190m (210yds) per 115g (4oz) skein.

Most recently added are both SW Merino Combed Top (4+oz braids) and a beautiful 84/16 SW Merino & Sparkling Gold Stellina (390m/420 yds).  

Both these can be custom ordered for any colourway.  

Because this is SW, you can safely machine wash your finished item, but it should not go in the dryer. 

That being said, hand washing with a gentle wool wash will be easier on the fibre and preserve the integrity of the colours and fibre. 

Please note that this is hand dyed in small batches and colours will vary batch to batch. 

Also, sometimes colours of the images may vary from monitor to monitor. I do my best to photograph the yarns as accurately as possible.
