The second of four yarns spun out of a single, 676-pound bale of scoured superfine Saxon Merino from upstate New York as part of The Great White Bale narrative yarn adventure.

Lot 2 was spun in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin, at the Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mill. We left one skein au naturel, the other was sent to Kristine at A Verb for Keeping Warm. There she and Adrienne naturally dyed it using madder extract in a technique that gave deliciously subtle varying shades of saturation.

Lot 2 is another truly one-of-a-kind yarn that can never be repeated.
