Our Bases

KnitingGale Yarns uses a variety of different bases. Each name is followed by the weight of the base. 

***KGY fiber bases officially changed July 2022. Although the new bases are almost identical to the previous suppliers, some differences may be noticed if the new and old bases are combined.***


*Diggity DK ~ 4-Ply DK weight. 100% SuperWash Merino. * 231 yards/100g. A fuller DK, closer to worsted weight, super soft base  


*Dope DK ~  2-ply yarn High Twist. 100% Superwash Punta Arenas Merino. *246 yards/100g.       Heavy duty DK base. Soft and perfect for any project.
