Highlighting our Yarn Bases: Dimond Laine Birdie

What can’t we say about Dimond Laine Birdie? This base is in constant rotation on our needles with fun and personality to the max! It’s a fingering weight yarn that is all things to all projects: it’s a strand-along, a fingering-weight, a DK-weight. Held single, the fabric is airy and cloud-like; held double, the fabric is all delicious fluffy squish. We also love how Birdie takes the dye – with a 74% Suri alpaca, 26% silk fiber blend, the color glows from the inside out, from its shiny, silky core to its brushed fleecy tips. We offer this yarn in 50-gram, 328-yard skeins in our full hand-dyed color catalog through our dyed-to-order events and in our Bainbridge Island store. It’s a true shapeshifter yarn and a staple here at The Lamb & Kid. Beautiful whether knit solo or with friends - #mixthosebases!

    To add to this great list- I’m finishing up my 2nd Cumulus Blouse using Birdie held double. I’m thinking about a color blocked third one!
