When Åsa Tricosa told us about her first swoony yarn infatuation that grew into a lasting love, we knew we had to see if we could create that yarn ourselves. We searched out the magical base and knew that we could make it just a little bit better with the Crave Yarn color palette. The result?
POGO by Crave Yarn - a sport-weight single-ply blend of shiny silk combined with a strand of fluffy mohair and nylon. Despite the textured appearance of the yarn in the hank, it knits up into a smooth and even fabric with luxurious drape and a soft halo. This blend of fibers paired with Crave Yarn’s semi-solid shades reflect a unique depth and intensity that is simply magical.

Like all hand-dyed yarns, each skein of POGO is unique. The combination of fibers combined with our dyeing technique means you’ll notice a bit more variability – lighter and darker areas in your skeins. For garments where more consistency is desired, we suggest you alternate skeins. We also recommend purchasing the yarn you need for a project all at once so that skeins of the same color can be well matched.
While we do have dyed skeins on hand, we reserve the option to dye-to-oder if that is the best option give the number of skeins in an order. If that is necessary it will take about 10-14 days. Please make a note in your order if you would like to be advised of a delay.
