About Preorders: Every so often, we open preorders on our line of yarn. During this time, you can choose the palette of your dreams and we will dye it for you. Typically, this takes us 3-4 weeks. When preorders are not open, or if you need yarn immediately, click here to shop from our stock of yarn that is currently in stock.
Floating is our ultra soft yarn made of alpaca, silk, cashmere yarn. With 437 yards, you can surely use it to create a single skein scarf or shawl. Or combine it with another yarn, to create an even larger piece.

When working with yarn dyed with indigo, it is common and natural for the blue dye to rub off on one’s hands while sewing. This is called crocking. Although the goods have been washed, it takes pressured contact to release the extra indigo dye. Your handwork is part of the indigo dyeing process. The blue dye can be removed with hot water and soap. From working closely with indigo dyed materials through the making process, typically, the excess dye has been removed, and the crocking will cease.
Please note the fiber content of the material you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton or linen - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
