About Our Yarns

We currently offer six yarn choices, all wool-based.  Fairy Dust is French sourced and milled and Lavish is milled in Italy. Trampoline is 100% USA-sourced and milled; Greatest of Ease, Magnificent and Ringmaster are USA milled. Of course, all are dyed with love by Knitcircus in Wisconsin. Please scroll down to find out more about the different yarn bases!

Trampoline Fingering


Trampoline - light fingering

Trampoline is a USA-sourced and USA-spun yarn made exclusively for Knitcircus. It is 100% superwash Merino, and has so much bounce, we just HAD to name it trampoline. Trampoline has 440 yards to 100 grams, making it the perfect light fingering yarn - it is wonderful for shawls, scarves, cowls, hats, mittens, and socks!

Lavish

Lavish - light sport

Lavish is another Knitcircus exclusive, which is 70% Merino, 20% cashmere, and 10% nylon. Because it is a bit denser than our fingering weight yarns, we make the gradient cakes a bit larger (for example, a 100g cake is actually 117g) to ensure that you get sufficient yardage.
