Ready to fall in love all over again with a superwash merino? Here it is! Reviews all say this yarn base is a winner, and not just for socks! Weavers: Rockshelter Sock is strong enough to use as warp. Knitters: Rockshelter Sock is the perfect choice for baby clothes, tees and shells, too. It has the look of ‘cabled’ yarns, and the firm twist gives it strength…that wonderful 2-ply twist which allows the two plies to plump up against each other.

Father & son, Dave & Will enjoy the physical act of dyeing yarns, and they collaborate as a working team. Meadowcroft Dyeworks’ dyers utilize a number of techniques they developed themselves. Yarn can often be seen hung on a rack in the back yard, or from wooden dowels hanging in their studio.
