Sometimes you see the perfect colorway for your project, but you need it on a different yarn base. Other times you find the perfect yarn colorway, but you need more than I have in stock.
Here you can order as many skeins as I have available on Buttery Soft DK, and I will dye them up just for you. Just choose the number of skeins you want, select a colorway, and click the Add to Cart button down below all the colorway options. You can certainly select more than one colorway, but you will need to add each colorway to your cart one at a time.
BUTTERY SOFT DK
This is a wonderfully soft 2-ply DK base with great stitch definition. It's made of 45% extra-fine merino (non-superwash), 45% baby alpaca, and 10% silk. It is a dream to work with! Each 100 gram skein contains 245 yards. This should be washed by hand in cold water and dried flat. The colorways dyed on Buttery Soft DK will tend to be softer due to the alpaca and silk content.
This yarn base is great for shawls, hats, sweaters, and more. Just do be aware that it is a non-superwash yarn and must be washed by hand so that it doesn't felt.
HOW DYED TO ORDER WORKS
If you see a colorway you would like me to dye for you on Buttery Soft DK or if you just need more than I have in stock, you are in the right place.
You can choose from all the different colorways I have available, and I will dye the yarn just for you. Please allow 2-3 weeks for me to dye the yarn for you, allow it to dry, and ship it to you.
If you order other yarn or fiber that is ready to ship at the same time, I will ship your whole order together. If you would prefer to have the ready-to-ship items sooner, please order them separately.
The photos shown a couple examples of colorways I have dyed on Buttery Soft DK. As you can see from the list of colorway options, there are many other colorways available beyond the included photos. You can see all the other colorways available by searching for the colorway name in the search bar at the top left of my website.
Please keep in mind that every skein will look a little different even within the same batch, and while the photos are a good representation of the yarn colorway, there will be differences depending on the yarn base and many other factors.
Those variations in color are in my opinion part of the joy of hand-dyed yarn. Nonetheless, it is best to order all that you'll need for your project at the same time since the yarn dyed all at once will look most similar.
