100% non-superwash Merino wool raised in Montana, Millspun yarn, naturally dyed with cochineal for a soft tonal pink. This stuff is so soft! The creation of these yarns supported Montana ranchers and wool workers. Sport weight 50 gram skeins, 200 yards. The mill this yarn was processed at doesn’t use harsh chemicals that would have dissolved the vegetable matter from the wool. Due to this more eco-friendly process, as well as the dyeing process which uses plant material skeins may include some bits of hay, which are easily removed while knitting.
This is a hand-dyed fiber, there are no dye-lots and braids may vary slightly. Alternating skeins is recommended. Some discharge of dye in the first few washings is normal and to be expected, it can be triggered by changes in ph and mineral content of the wash and/or rinse water. I dye in my home studio using well water whose ph and mineral content varies seasonally and may be different from yours. Ships from a pet friendly, low scent, non- smoking home studio. Every effort is made to ensure color is displayed correctly in photos, however monitors may vary.
