The Fiberful Facts


At Knitten Word, it's important that my yarn is pleasurable for you to work with and serves you well in your intended end product.  I look for blends of fiber that combine strength, comfort, and luxury.  I'm also mindful about natural fibers and try to use bases that let the natural fibers featured shine through.

Fingering Weight
55% SW Bluefaced Leicester and 45% Silk

Dalia is named for one of the goddesses of fate.  She is in charge of one's material wealth and property.  This fingering weight base boasts two fibers that offer you shine and strength.  Bluefaced Leicester has bounce and shine, while silk offers strength and drape.  The combined fiber is ideal for shawls and sweaters, as well as hats.  This fiber is kind against the skin and can be used for all kinds of garments.

Perkunas Base Close-Up.JPG

Fingering Weight
90% SW Merino and 10% Lurex


Perkunas is a fun yarn that is named for Baltic god of the sky, lightening, thunder, and storms.  The flash of thunderbolt silver that streaks through this yarn is paying tribute to the god Perkunas.  The even metallic sparkle it adds to a project is eye catching and adds that pop that you want sometimes (or all the time).  It is a loosely plied merino yarn, plied with lurex.  The resulting fabric is drapey with evenly dispersed twinkles of shimmer.  I love this yarn for a light top or a shawl with a lace motif.

DK Weight
55% SW Bluefaced Leicester and 45% Silk

Laima is a favorite luxury workhorse yarn.  The yarn is named for the Baltic goddess of fate, Laima.  She is also in charge of luck and is especially important to mothers and pregnant women.  The Bluefaced Leicester is bouncy and shiny, while the silk adds more luster and  strength.  The tight ply makes this yarn ideal for things touching the skin; sweaters, heavier weight shawls, gloves, and hats.  The resulting fabric has a lovely drape, a high shine, and durability.  As someone who is hard on clothes, this yarn was chosen to be pretty yet tough.

Zemyna Base Close-Up_edited.jpg

Aran Weight
80% SW Merino, 10% Cashmere, and 10% Nylon


Zemyna is the goddess of the earth and nourishes all life, from humans to plants to animals.  This yarn is meant to feel nourishing to work with.  One that is soft, cozy, and feels like it is giving you a hug and warming you as you wear it.  The merino yarn is plush and reliable, while the touch of cashmere gives it an added cloud-like softness.  The nylon adds strength and durability to whatever you make.  I have a feeling this yarn will be what you use to make the things to embrace you on the coldest of days.
