Berry Fun Yarns are dyed naturally, without the use of toxic chemicals. The colors are coaxed out of the beautiful plants and flowers (or even coffee that Grandpa drinks!) that fill the fields of Firefly Berries. We do purchase a small amount (less than 10%) of our dyestuff or natural extracts from trusted U.S. dyestuff companies, as there are a few colors that are we are unable to grow in Minnesota. Dyeing yarn naturally is different than using acid dyes in many ways, but the most striking to the dyer is that naturally dyed yarns are highly sensitive to the pH of the water used both in the dyeing and washing process. A slight change in the pH of the water can yield an entirely different color. Because of this, we recommend handwashing all Berry Fun Yarn in cool or tepid water with a pH neutral soap like Eucalan. Once we dye the yarn, we do wash every hank to assure the dye has both set and is easy for the customer to work with. We also recommend storing your yarn and finished products out of direct sunlight.
A superfine yarn that is great for lace work. Great for projects that wish to evoke an ethereal or floaty feeling. Laceweight mohair or silk is also wonderful when held double with another yarn to create extra warmth and texture. Most commonly used with size US 000-US 1 (1.5-2.25 mm) knitting needles or a 1.4-2.25 mm crochet hook.
Fingering weight yarn is often used for baby items, socks, shawls, and other lightweight accessories and garments. It is approximately twice the weight of a lace yarn, and is typically knit using a US size 1-3 (2.25-3.25 mm) knitting needle or a size B-1 to E-3 (2.25-3.5 mm) crochet hook.
For those who can’t decide on one color, or who are working on a multicolored or scrappy project, these smaller mini skeins are perfect. They come in either 10 or 20 gram sizes, as well as multiple bases.
Sport is slightly heavier in weight than fingering and DK stands for double knitting weight. This category of yarn is a great middle of the road weight, perfect for all projects from hats and mittens to baby items and even garments. Most commonly used with size US 5-7 (3.75-4.5 mm) knitting needles or a size 7 to I9 (4.5-5.5 mm) crochet hook.
Worsted/Aran are the two thickest yarn bases that I currently carry. Both weights fall into the medium weight “4” category as given by the Yarn Council and are great for a multitude of warmer projects from hats to mittens to garments and blankets. Gauge would generally be 16-20 stitches over 4 inches with the use of US 7-9 needles or a crochet hook size I-K.
Love to make socks with matching heels, toes and cuffs? These sets are perfect for you! Sets are available in multiple sizes for all the different size feet in your life!
Looking for a deal? The yarn in this category is either a retired base or colorway. Still perfectly wonderful in its own way, but limited in quantity.
