Squish Fingering clockwise from the top; The Den, Crosscurrent, Everything's Copacetic, The Sapphire Empress, Daddy State of Mind, Old Man Coyote, Clay Dreaming, Mars of Us, Love Me Like You Used To
6 yarns we love most for tees and tanks are Foxy Lady, Squish Fingering, Juicy DK, Oh Dang, Bear Paw Sock, and Mighty Mo.
Bear Paw Sock from left to right :: York, I've Got Dreams to Remember, Witchy Woman, Bitterroot, Buffalo Gal
Foxy Lady ::
Left to Right : Castle Rock, Everything's Copacetic, Come and Get Your Love, Aquemini, BS'n
If you’re looking for some drape to your tank or tee, scroll no further. Foxy Lady is made with 70% Merino and 30% Silk. A single ply without the pilling, Foxy is a dream to wear and knit with. The silk helps you from overheating plus that shine! I love speckles on Foxy but the tonals are just as juicy.

Squish Fingering is a 100% Merino Superwash that is soft, sleek, and uniform. Not quite as much drape as Foxy Lady, we love Squish for garments we want to wear over and over and over again. It washes up perfectly every time. My favorite thing about Squish Fingering is how it takes dye; bright, crisp, and consistent every time!
Juicy DK ::
Left to Right :: Sunny's, Evergreen, The Den, Ranch Romance, Livvie Lu
Juicy DK is by far our most popular base. She is consistently good for any garment, and we have found some gorgeous designs in a DK weight. 100% Superwash Merino, this is another base you can wash again and again without loosing any luster. I love Juicy for colorwork! The ply on this yarn helps give it some drape, so we always recommend soaking and blocking your swatch OR just steam blocking your garments.
Oh Dang! ::
Left to Right :: Hacer, Madmartigan, Come and Get Your Love, Bison Princess, Aquemini
Oh Dang is soft, fluffy, and a great yarn if you're sensitive to Mohair! A combo of Suri Alpaca and silk makes this yarn perfect for holding double with yarns like Squish Fingering or Foxy Lady or holding by itself for a light and airy tank.
Top Row :: The Sapphire Empress, Bison Princess, Big Sky Sunset
Bottom Row :: Glacial Lake Missoula, Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken
Left to Right :: Namoo, Buffalo Gal, Clay Dreaming, Madmartigan
Bear Paw Sock started out as a Sock Squad favorite and quickly made its way into our regular yarn lineup! A blend of Merino, Yak, and Nylon, this yarn is perfect for tees and tanks that might get more wear and tear. The grey base takes dye beautifully, showing deep, rich color.
Mighty Mo ::
Above Left to Right :: Gary Cooper, Kinnikinnick, Holy Matrimony, York, The Sapphire Empress
We couldn’t leave out our favorite sheer yarn, Mighty Mo! Mighty Mo is a combo of Mohair and Silk. The effervescence of this yarn is striking! Some tees and tanks have hints of Mohair, while a few others are made completely for Mohair. We love it's body and beautiful sheen.
