Item details

**If you'd like a different quantity or base yarn than shown here, please convo me. I can customize nearly any of my colorways.

This listing is for one 100gram/400yd skein of yarn in the colorway and base shown in the photos and described below. The second photo shows how it looks after I rewind the skeins. Same yarn.

This yarn is variegated but will do some cool planned pooling things -- especially in socks. The photos show a sock I'm knitting -- 64 stitches cast onto 2.5mm needles.

Caution Construction: Part of my Caution series dyed with industrial grey, black, and a pop of colour -- in this case traffic cone orange.

I can dye this colorway on any of my bases. Please convo me if you have a request.

This is also the Ravelry Rubbernecker colorway called My Sniffles Got Sniffles -- for you sooper seekrit peeps on Facebook who love to gawk at the Appalachian crazy. Here's to you Rubberneckers and all others who know who you are -- and to some who should know better. The colours are black, grey and hunter hat orange as in the photo of the Appalachian Atrocity that was sent to me.


Base yarn is a soft lux superwash merino and nylon blend. It has a lovely firm 2-ply twist and bounce. Perfect for socks, lacework, baby items, and anything you want to wear next to your skin.

80% Superwash Merino / 20% Nylon
7-9st=1" on US size 0-2 needles
Hand or machine wash gentle; lay flat (recommended) or tumble dry on low.

I hand-dye all my yarns one at a time, with care and attention to detail. I live in a non-smoking, dog/cat-free home.

Packages ship within three business days of receipt of payment. Please read my profile box for details on my policies.

I ship by Airmail to the US and Canada. Most packages arrive in one to two weeks.

**International/Overseas Buyers Only: Shipping rates listed are for Airmail. Surface/Ground takes two to three months, but Airmail typically takes one to three weeks. If you prefer the cheaper method of shipping and don't mind a really long wait, I can refund you the difference between Airmail and surface and ship it that way instead. Surface rates are usually the same as those listed to the US.

I ship within three business days of receipt of payment. I accept custom/special orders with about a week of turnaround time.

I am happy to combine shipping in order to get you the best deal.

***Shipping Rates/Charges***

I use the cheapest available shipping rate (Surface/Ground) for all packages going to Canada and the US. Your shipping includes postage and packaging. Most packages arrive in one to two weeks. If your package has not arrived in three weeks, I definitely want to know about it. I can refund or replace your order if it has not arrived within six weeks.

Yes, it does cost more to ship from Canada to Canada, than it does to ship from Canada to the US. Sad but true.

International/Overseas Destinations:

I used to charge surface/ground internationally, but I was finding my packages took two to three months to arrive, especially to Australia and the UK.

I have now changed all my International shipping rates to cover Airmail postage to all non Canada/US destinations. Packages arrive in one to three weeks.

If you prefer a cheaper method of shipping and don't mind a really long wait, I can refund you the difference between Airmail and surface and ship it that way instead.


I accept payment by Paypal. It is possible to pay by major credit card through Paypal, without having a Paypal account. If you need help figuring this out, please feel free to convo me.

Returns & exchanges

I do not have a standard return policy, but I am committed to keeping my clients happy. I like to deal with each situation individually. Please do contact me if you have any problems or disappointments with your order.

**If you do plan to return your yarn or any other product, I would like to know as soon as possible. Items, especially yarn, must be in their original condition, and buyer pays return shipping.
