This is a 100% organic merino wool dyed in a 1790’s farmhouse located in Maine using only natural dyes. The subtle variegations of tone are achieved by using time-honored traditions of natural dying. Small batches of skeins are dipped by hand into vats, with each distinctive lot being carefully crafted by our dyer. Since each batch is unique, the colors will vary slightly from lot to lot. We take what nature provides us. That’s what makes our yarns different from other commercially produced yarns. That’s what we love about them!
