Once in a Blue Moon

*Can be on any base at any time.
Our Once in a Blue Moon title refers to any kind of base that has been dyed in a unique way that cannot or will not be repeated. They are always beautiful tonal or speckled colour ways. When available, each Once in a Blue Moon listing will contain the information relevant to that particular base (i.e. yardage, weight, and fiber content).

Little Dippers

Our Little Dippers are our mini's! Currently, we have two bases available in 20 gram versions: Comet Sock (92 yards) and Cosmic String Single (80 yards). These will be available both individually and in bundle collections of different amounts. They will be available in tonal and speckled colour ways. Mini's are great as a pop of colour in a project, for sock heels/toes/cuffs, for adding a stripe to your blanket, small projects like crocheted or knitted toys, etc. The possibilities are endless!

The Knitty Gritty

Yarn and Photo Clarity


Due to the wonderful and interesting nature of hand dyed yarns, there is lots of room for variation within each colour way itself and for each base that the colour way is dyed on. Basically, even if it's the same colour way- each skein is unique! This can be due to the differences in fiber content, plies, and whether the yarn is "super wash" treated.

For each update, we will include new photos of every available colour way in order to provide reference for how the yarns will appear in person. However, please note there is still a possibility that your yarn will not look 100% like the photo (due to different monitor screens). We promise to try our best to accurately portray each colour way in our photos.

Wool Care


Our yarn is dyed using acid dyes and should be hand washed/soaked in cold water using a wool wash (i.e. Soak, Eucalan, etc.) and laid flat to dry. Minor color bleeding may happen with some colour ways during their first soak. This is normal and even happens with commercially dyed yarns. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at fullmoonfibres@gmail.com

Two + Skein Projects


As mentioned above, each skein of hand dyed yarn tends to be a bit different. If you are starting a project that requires more than one skein, in the same colour way, we recommend alternating skeins as you knit or crochet. If there is a colour way that you would really like to have in a larger amount, please contact us at fullmoonfibres@gmail.com and we would love to help you with that! We will specifically dye a larger quantity all at once for you. In the future, it is our hope to be able to offer regularly available sweater quantities in our shop in addition to custom orders.
