Fine Print  

Fine Print is a very special, unique concept for hand dyed yarn. 3/4 of the skein is dipped in a rich, deep, black dye, while the remaining 1/4 of the skien is left undyed (which isnt a true white, it's got a very subtle cream tinge to it, as al undyed yarn does). The effect you'll get while knitting with a skien of Fine Print is either colour pooling or self striping, depending on your gauge, tension, needle size and row length. 

I designed this colourway with the Herding Cat Sock Pattern in mind, as it's just what I needed for a cool effect that copies the colours of my sibling's black and white cats!

I'll be sure to add photos to this listing as the cats in the colourwork come to life. 

Because of the nature of the dye process, ands the type of dye used, I can only offer this colourway on select yarn bases. 


Fine Print is shown on here on my  Squishy Sock base.

Let me take a moment to walk you through all 6 of my different yarn bases.

Lustrous Lace Base: This very thin, very fine lace weight yarn is both luxurious yet practical. Made up of 75% Extrafine Superwash Merino, and 25% Mulberry Silk, this base is so very soft, and the colours of dye simply glow throughout each skein. 100 grams and 875 yards, this yarn base is a 2ply construction. A stunning choice for shawls and light summer garments, this yarn base has a lovely drape and is very comfortable to wear next to the skin. Hand wash only.


Squishy Sock Base: A soft and plump fingering weight yarn, made up of 80% Superwash Merino Wool and 20% Nylon. Each skien is 114 grams and 437 yards. It has an 8 ply makeup, giving it a substantial feel for a fingering weight yarn, which borderlines sport weight for some. It is machine washable on delicate cycle, thanks to it’s superwash treatment. This is a reliable and practical choice for items like socks, shawls, baby items and other wearable garments.

Luxe Sock Base: Luxe Sock is made up of 75% Ultra Fine Merino Wool, 15% Mulberry Silk, and 10% Cashmere. Each skien is 100 grams and 437 yards, 2ply construction. This yarn base is heavenly soft against the skin, and perfect for a special project calling for a high end fingering weight yarn. The Mulberry Silk adds drape and lustre, and the cashmere creates a fuzzy halo effect as you work with it. The colours of dye tend to shine through, looking much more striking and rich compared to some of my samples on Superwash bases. Hand wash only.

Hidden DK Base: Once a little shop secret, this base is now available all the time! This ultra versatile Double Knit Base is a no-brainer, easy choice for anything meant to wear next to the skin. Made up of 85% Extra Fine Superwash Merino Wool and 15% Nylon, this yarn is unbelievably soft, easy to care for (machine washable on a delicate cycle, in cold water) and takes up the dye colours beautifully. Each skein is 100 grams and 246 yards, this yarn is a 4ply construction. 

Classic Worsted Base: A soft and full Worsted Base yarn, made up of 100% Superwash Merino Wool. Each skein is 110 grams and 205 yards, with a 4 ply construction. It is plush, and versatile, and thanks to its superwash treatment, it is also machine washable on a delicate cycle. A great, practical choice for any project calling for a Worsted Weight base.

Hidden Bulky Base: Once a little shop secret, this base is now available all the time! The thickest of all my bases, this 100% Extra Fine Superwash Merino base is unbelievably soft next to the skin, and the dye colours simply shine through. Each skein is 100 grams and 109 yards, with a 2ply construction. Although made up of the same blend as the Classic Worsted Weight base, this yarn has a much softer feel to it thanks to the Extra Fine Merino Wool. 

I keep all base options In Stock online, but there’s always a chance I’ll need to dye the right colour on the right base for your order. It never takes longer than a day or two and I’ll happily ship your order as quickly as possible within 1-2 business days 

The beauty of indie dyed yarns is that no two are identical, I recommend alternating skeins after each row for a more uniform look. It is a rare occurrence, and I do everything possible to avoid this, but there is always a chance of colour bleeding with the first wash. The photos used are chosen to best represent the true colourways, using natural sunlight. I try my hardest to achieve consistency between dye lots, however it’s important to order the right quantity for your project, as there is always a difference from one batch to the next. If you need a quick consultation while choosing colours, please let me know, I’d love to help!
