Fingering weight, naturally hand dyed with Birch bark, leaves and twigs, sustainably harvested from my farm. I added them to a large pot of water, brought them to a boil, and then simmered them for a couple of hours and let the dye pot sit overnight before using. I then strained the liquid off and added the yarn, brought the dye pot to a boil, turned off the heat and let the yarn steep until all the color from the dye was absorbed into the yarn. It resulted in a lovely brown beige color that only nature can acheive. The skein has slight variations that result in an interesting color. This yarn is very soft.

Each naturally dyed skein is unique with tonal variations. If I offer more than one skein in the same listing then they came from the same dye pot and will be very similar in color(s).

This yarn is 75% Fine Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. It contains 100g and 462 yards. 7-8 stitches per inch on #1-3 needles.

Hand dyed with plant material I gather myself and when done it is safely deposited in the compost pile.

Please note that naturally dyed fibers may fade, darken or change slightly over the course of their lifetime. This is part of the character and charm of organic matter products, and these fractional changes over a long period of time should not discourage you from using environmentally friendly yarns.

Kettle dyed in my cottage studio at Whispering Birch Farm in KY, USA.
