About the Yarn

Wanderlust blends the absolute best of two worlds - softness and strength, luxury and durability. Both BFL wool and silk are known for their luster, durability, and drape. The silk adds a gorgeous sheen, while the BFL brings a lovely crispness to the hand of the yarn and an almost inner glow. BFL lacks the memory and tendency to pill of a merino wool, making it an excellent choice for almost any project (but worked to a slightly tighter gauge than a merino wool for larger projects, to prevent unwanted stretching).

About This Base's Sustainability

Our BFL wool comes from Great Britain, and as with all BFL is mulesing-free.

Data on silk is mixed and complex, but compared to similar fibers (rayon, Tencel, lyocell, polyester, etc.) silk tends to use more water and slightly more energy to produce. On the other hand, silk comes out significantly ahead in land use (using marginal land not fit for other crops), toxic chemical use, circularity of production (the byproducts from silk production are useful, and end up reintegrated into the local ecosystem), and (specifically as compared to petroleum-derived products like polyester and nylon) its ability to biodegrade/compost. Silk also offers a superior level of performance if looking for breathability, strength, sheen, thermoregulation, hypoallergenic, moisture-wicking, stain and odor resistance, and (especially important for our purposes) the ability to hold a block like nothing else, all in one fiber. 

Like all of our yarns, it is dyed sustainably in our studio with organic-standards-compliant dyes and minimal waste, and is biodegradable and compostable.

All yarn is dyed to order and ships within 2 weeks.

US orders over $100 ship free (generally via USPS Priority shipping for all areas except the West coast, and via UPS Ground for the West coast).

In line with our commitment to sustainability, our packaging is 100% recycled and recyclable with your regular paper recycling (yes, including the label)!

International orders: please note that customs forms will accurately reflect your order and purchase price. In general we recommend using USPS for international orders to reduce the chances of surprise fees. We cannot control or be responsible for any fees imposed by other countries, but we are happy to use your preferred shipping method to help minimmize surprises.
