I'm actually open to other weights! I have some sparkle dk to try for a cardi for DD. I also knit socks, so I'm open to ordering sock yarns as well.

Thanks for the compliments!

Re: Gauging interest in hand dyed yarn testers

I'm interested. So far I've only used worsted weight yarn. I prefer bases that work best with cloth diapering since most of my knitting, especially with wool, heads in that direction at least for the main project. I'd like various shades of pink/red, green, purple, and browns.

Re: Gauging interest in hand dyed yarn testers

Looks like there is enough interest. I'm gathering some bases and supplies and working on my tester questionnaire. I'll report back.

I'd be interested too. Boy colors on a SW base, or a gaia bulky/kona worsted or LT in a semi-solid or girl colors. I could really use some semi-solids right now LOL! PM me if you still need testers

Re: Gauging interest in hand dyed yarn testers

I've mostly used hand dyed yarns from purewool or mosaic moon, but have tried a skein here and there of other group buy yarns offered here on DS. I would love to test for you and would prefer the purewool base, my second choice would be the merino worsted. I would like two skeins of colorway and one 2 oz skein of trim. I would love a girly colorway with bright colors and 4-5 different colors or shades of color. Thanks.

I'd be interested in a scrappy set in Gaia Bulky or Merino Worsted
