If you are looking for a luxurious yarn experience look no further! This finger weight yarn that contains Yak and Silk in it’s line up is sure to please! 


Black Butte can make a small simple project go over to that ooh and ahhh place. It can also make a sweater or shawl you never want to take off!

We were so lucky to have met Alexandra on a recent trip. She has such and energy for what she does. You can see it in her face and feel it in her spirit. Her number one goal is to put out the best product out there. We love supporting indy-dyers and she is hitting it out of the park on a regular basis. Is very high up there in the squish factor!
