100% Peruvian highland wool 4 ply sock yarn, naturally dyed with sustainably gathered wolf lichen for a self striping pattern. These sock yarns were dyed in a small batch in the kitchen of my woodland cottage home in Montana. striping will vary with the number of stitches used and your gauge. Fingering/ sock weight 4 oz skeins, 450 yards per skein.
All of my dye work is done from my home studio in the woods of NW MT. 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.
