I look forward to putting new colorways and bases in the shop soon. Thank you so much for everyone's wonderful response and hang tight. Because before a show, it's crazy here. :)

Item details

100% Merino Wool, and nothing more. This superwash yarn sucks up the incredible dyes we use and makes an unforgettable DK project, sweaters anyone? If you would like a sweater’s quantity of any yarn, please PM me for an order dyed just for you! We regret we can only dye our own colorways and cannot reproduce a photo, or dress color. Warm hats, mittens, even slippers that are cozy to perfection? This yarn is your go-to.

-About the Colorway

Purple is the New Chocolate

If you knit, you know that knitting can be better than chocolate. Knitting is also better with chocolate, just sayin’. This is a luscious and adult purple. With undertones of plum, lavender, lilac and gold, this is a warmed-up purple with reddish tones throughout, but no red. Tonal, it still has the movement and light that we strive to put in all our colorways.

We use professional acid dyes in our in-home dye studio. The bright colors will last, I suggest washing by hand and drying flat. Most colorways do not stripe, or pool, however some do and we will always note that

One of the wonderful things about artisanal dyeing is like the proverbial snowflake, no two are exactly alike. If you wish to order more than one skein, please alternate skeins to assure a picture perfect finished project.

The base yarn, Lake House DK, is an incredible 100% Merino Wool Yarn that has an inherent ability to take dye and hold it. We love dyeing this yarn, as much as we love working with it!

-Four Ply DK Weight Yarn

- 100% Superwash Merino Wool

- Approximately 231 yards, in a 100 gram skein

- More than enough yardage for a hat, mitts, or small shawl. If you need more than one skein for your project, please convo us, so we can dye them at one time for a better match. Please allow three weeks for a special order.

- All Yarn is Re-Skeined to ensure no knots, or tangles.
- Cat friendly home, non-smoking environment. If you have a serious cat allergy, please let us know. We will do everything possible to make sure you do not get yarn with as little as possible contact with cat dander. We work hard to make sure the cats never come in contact with the yarn, but we make extra sure for people with allergies.
Liedel Fiber Art yarn makes a great gift for your knitting, or crocheting friends and family! Each skein is wrapped in eco-friendly tissue paper and is closed with a pretty sticker. I am happy to include a small gift card at no additional cost. Just let me know in a convo.

We ship via USPS when appropriate. Otherwise you can state your preference for another carrier. If this increases cost, I will give you an option prior to mailing. I ship internationally, the least expensive way. We ask that any purchase over fifty dollars be insured. Believe me, this makes life easier and offers a headache free existence for everyone. Packages are shipped three times a week. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.


We accept PayPal and Etsy Payments. If you are using an E-check, it must clear, prior to shipment. Michigan buyers will be taxed. We'd love to skip this part, but Lansing likes to check that we're compliant with tax codes and honestly, we want to participate in the growth of our state.

If you wish to cancel an order, please do so as soon as possible. We cannot cancel a shipped order. Custom dye orders are not eligible for cancellation once the yarn has been dyed.

Additional policies

Our aim is to deliver delight. All colorways are photographed to the best possible match. Monitors can change things and different dye lots will affect the color. As with all hand-dyed products some variations may occur. Please let us know if this lot is not what you are expecting. We will try our best to match your expectations. We do look at the photos on two monitors and in different browsers so every photo is as honest as possible.
