Yarn Base Information

At ontheround we care very deeply about the yarn bases we dye. The bases that we carry take dye exceptionally well, are durable and made for long term wear, and are generous in yardage. Although we do off some blends in our limited edition section, superwash merino is our specialty as it lends itself perfectly to our unique dye process that makes ontheround yarn what it is!

Plush Collection

Our Plush Collection features ultra soft, 19.5 micron merino wool. This collection has two bases in it, one a silky single ply yarn that is so soft and shockingly sturdy and a 4 ply yarn that is equally soft but with the added durability of more plies. Both Plush bases take dye exceptionally well and have a beautiful pearly sheen. Both of these yarns are from the UK and are certified cruelty free. 

Plush yarns are recommended for most projects, especially next to skin and baby knits do to it's extra softness. Shawls, sweaters, and other accessories would look amazing in either yarns from this collection. I do not recommend using Plush Single for socks however, single ply yarn is not designed for that type of pressured heavy wear.

Signature Sock Yarn

Our Signature Sock Yarn is a blend of US grown and processed superwash merino with a bit of nylon for added durability. This 4 ply yarn is incredibly plump and soft making the skeins seem massive compared to other sock yarns on the market and will make a durable sock that will keep you warm and last for a long time. Signature Sock Yarn isn't 'just for socks either, it's also great for sweaters, shawls, hats, mittens- even next to skin projects! Due to the nylon in this yarn, the colors are often a bit more muted compared to our other bases. We also offer a few extra variegated colorways in this yarn that are not available on any other collection!

Spontaneous Sock Yarn

This base is a throwback to the very first base I started dyeing in 2009, that original base of Spontaneous Sock Yarn has since been discontinued but this one is remarkably similar. Spontaneous Sock Yarn is used exclusively for my colorway of the month offering. Unlike our Signature Sock Yarn that offers a 80/20 merino/nylon content, this base is 75% superwash merino and 25% nylon and takes color extremely well, this base is also a finer sock yarn as it is spun by a different mill and is a thinner weight comparable to other sock yarns available on the market. This yarn is made of a higher grade merino wool giving it a bit more durability as well as making it very affordable. This yarn is ideal for socks but also great for any fingering weight project you'd wish to make with it!

Limited Edition Bases

At ontehround we really value ply and experimentation and so occasionally we do small runs of different bases to keep things fun and exciting. These bases are usually offered in very limited quantities. Sometimes these bases are dyed in the colorways available in our main collection and sometimes they are dyed in one of a kind batches unavailable anywhere else in our shop! We do recommend that if you see something you like that you get it because nothing in this collection is promised! 

Since the bases offered in this collection are ever changing, you can find all the details located in the listings page.
