Yarn Bases

yarn bases

Some dyers make it needlessly difficult to figure out their weights and bases. Unique names sound cool but then you have to go find a key to translate it. Ten minutes later when you find out it’s just 80/10/10, you’re probably feeling a little frustrated. No mystery here! We feel it’s just easier to call it what it is and let you spend more time shopping and less time translating names. Below you’ll find a detailed breakdown of the bases at Lavender Lune Yarn Co.
