Misky (Quechua for “sweet”) is quickly becoming our “bread & butter” base for knitters of all levels. A yarn that brings back memories of childhood knitting classes and wooly winter socks from the ladies at church, long before the rise of super-washing.

Non-superwash, non-museling, ample yardage and exceptional tonal variation in each unique skein. Misky is ideal for sweaters, hats, socks & baby knits. 

Please note that colors will vary between computer-phone-tablet monitors and dye baths, and though we try our best to post color-accurate photos, variations should be anticipated. For any questions or concerns about color exactness, please contact us!

Natural dyes fade beautifully with time and may run a bit when washed but will retain their vibrancy with proper care. We recommend hand washing in cold water with a drop of pH neutral detergent and laying flat to dry away from direct sunlight.

Why pH neutral detergent?

Most commercial, even all natural detergents, are acidic or alkaline solutions that could alter naturally dyed colors. For example, we use citric acid or lime juice as a modifier to dye bright reds with cochineal. An acidic (or alkaline) detergent can have a similar result, breaking down dyes and changing colors even in the first wash.
