New Bases Ready for Fall

As Fall slowly starts to creep into most of the Northern Hemisphere, we at QCC Yarn are still in the midst of summer and will be for a few more months. In order to make it feel more like the seasons are changing, we have started to dye up some autumnal and Halloween colors.

In addition to the new colors, we now have three new yarn bases available: Floofy Cat, Forlorn Cat and Cat-Mandu.

Floofy and Forlorn Cats are 2-ply fingering weight yarns, with 400 yards per 100g. Floofy Cat is 80% SW Merino/20% nylon. Forlorn Cat is 80% SW British BFL/20% nylon.
Cat-Mandu is a 3-ply fingering weight yarn with 436 yards per 100g. It’s 70% SW Merino/20% yak/10% nylon.

Cat-Mandu is a rather special yarn. It has a natural grey base, due to the yak fiber; when dyed, it creates wonderfully deep, rich colors. These colors are only available on the Cat-Mandu base, unlike our other colorways, which can be dyed on any of our other bases.

So many indie dyers. One email.
