Tiger Yarn and Fiber of the Month Clubs - Join for yarn, fiber, or both!  Each month you will receive a new color and the inspiration behind it.  Billed monthly, stay as long (or little) as you like.

Hand Dyed Lace Yarn
Hand Dyed Lace Yarn- Beautiful for knitting lace shawls and other fine work. In variegated, non-pooling variegated, and semi-solid colors. We have the knitter's and weaver's favorite.... Zephyr and 20/2 Silk.

 
Hand Dyed Sock / Fingering Yarn - There are many types of sock yarn at The Painted Tiger. You will find colors from wild variegations to subtle ombres and kettle dyes. 
  • Tiger Twist - 2 ply tight twist 100% Superwash Merino, this yarn is spun specifically for making bouncy squooshy socks.
  • Tiger Sport - 3 ply 100% Superwash Merino, same squooshy qualities as Tiger Twist, but rounder. Dyed in self-striping colors.
  • Bengal Twist - A lovely 3 ply sock yarn with high twist, and made from strong and lustrous BFL wool. This is a true thin fingering/heavy lace weight yarn.
  • Silver Lynx- Looking for luxury? This yarn is Superfine Merino, Silk, Nylon, and real Silver. Great for shawls, wristwarmers, and anywhere you want a little sparkle (yes, socks too!!)
  • Panda- A great blend of Superwash Merino and Bamboo, this sock yarn absorbs dye in a unique way, leaving a muted Fillet of Sole Hand Dyed Sock Blanksheathery look, and the fabulous shine of bamboo. A great choice for socks due to the antibacterial properties of bamboo, but also fabulous in garments where you want some drape.
  • Fillet of Sole - This is not a type of yarn, but a special prep. I take one of my premium yarns and knit it up double stranded into a sock blank, then hand paint each one. You unravel (or I'll frog and ball it for you) as you knit two socks at a time, marveling at the amazing complex colors that unfold.
