Auckland New Zealand
'Chocka' base is a dreamy DK base of 80/20 New Zealand Corriedale and Silk. This is a go to yarn that can do it all. More durable than merino (less pilling) but is still so soft (Corriedales are half Merino!) and with the added perfect ratio of 20% mulberry silk there is sheen and drape. This is an excellent choice for plumpy shawls or heirloom sweaters, stunning hats or that cowl you wear again and again and again.
All of our yarns are hand wash, dry flat, then snuggle.

Poetic, rich colour on sumptuous New Zealand yarns: Merino, Corriedale, Merino-Cross, Romney, from the grower to the mill to the dyer - connect your final object back to it’s origin & incorporate the story of the yarn into your own. This is our definition of luxury.

Yarn is the best. It makes the stores who sell it, and the people who buy it happy. It’s sustainable, and supports hard working people in smaller communities trying to slow things down while the world speeds up. All around it’s an amazing, natural product.
Prosper Yarn is small, local, ethical, and socially minded. We use New Zealand grown and milled yarn bases. We do not support mulesing. We use as little fresh water as possible, and fully exhaust our locally mixed professional acid dyes.
Prosper does not use Super Wash yarn bases.
