Tonal Yarn Bases With our wonderful selection of tonals available in lace, fingering and worsted weight yarns, you will be sure to find a stunning tonal shade perfect for your next project.

Shadow Tonal™


The soft Merino fibers will keep you wrapped up in warmth as the understated variations of colors highlight intricate lace textures. The lightweight and delicate nature of Shadow Tonal also lends itself well for flowing cardigans and wraps – perfect for layering during the cooler, transitioning months of spring.

Stroll Tonal™


A blend of superwash Merino and nylon makes this a great easy-care yarn while understated, shifting colors add a classic elegance. This fingering weight yarn is the perfect skein to store in your stash when inspiration strikes for larger projects. Effortlessly create lightweight cardigans and sweaters that are sure to impress, while the shifting shades of tonal colors takes center stage.

Wool of the Andes Tonal™


Versatile and sturdy, Wool of the Andes Tonal is a hard-wearing yarn with a tight spin that works wonders for garments and accessories that will get a lot of wear. Create irresistible outerwear, cabled cardigans, and durable sweaters, all while showing of splashes of subtle colors with Wool of the Andes Tonal.

Swish Tonal™


By combining a high grade, machine washable Merino wool with subtle, monochromatic shades - Swish Tonal gives you the best of both worlds. This worsted weight yarn works up quickly to produce a plush fabric that is worthy of being worn against sensitive skin. Create cuddly baby sweaters, treasured blankets, and special sweaters with the gentle shifting shades of Swish Tonal.
