Rustic indigo dyed handspun yarn, classic evenly balanced two ply, made from local suffolk wool. Suffolk is a bouncy, lofty wool that is very hard wearing and resists felting, my favorite wool to use for something you'll wear or use often! It's SO deliciously squishy! It's a natural oatmeal color, then I overdyed it using cochineal, a natural dye. It's a gorgeous soft subtle rose pink.
Supporting local farms is very important to me. I ONLY source fibers from local fiber farms raising sustainable, happy, healthy fiber animals. Whenever possible I try to know the name of every fiber-producing animal who contributes to my yarns! It is a delight and a joy to work with local fiber producers raising wonderful animals.
This is a two ply yarn, very evenly spun on a Columbine wheel. 5 oz, 130 yards
Often these yarns are completely one of a kind, but occasionally I might have doubles, or may be able to custom-spin larger amounts if you need. Please convo me if you have any questions or requests.
These yarns are spun in my home; I do my absolute best to keep my felines and fosterdog out of the fiber, but please do be aware that these yarns are created in an pet-friendly home. After they are spun, tagged, photographed and listed on etsy, they "live" in my herb shop until they are sold, so they DO smell pleasantly of herbs - most people find this pleasant but if you think this might be objectionable, you have been warned :) .
SHIPPING! I did my best to make shipping affordable, and put in the weight and dimensions for every listing so etsy can calculate the best shipping rate for you - but the problem is, it doesn't work well. :/ The shipping seems to be accurate for one or two skeins, but more than that and it can be high. I will also refund you if there are shipping overcharges! So do not fret. Feel free to convo me if you need more exact information before you purchase, but I WILL always check and refund you any excess if needed.
