Fingering weight, naturally hand dyed with Lichen sustainably foraged from my farm in KY. I hand gathered the Lichen from various rocks, trees and fences around my farm, and only took a little from each so that they can continue to grow and thrive. I added them to a pot of water, brought them to a boil, and then simmered them for at least an hour. I then strained the liquid off and added the yarn, brought it to a simmer, and then let it steep overnight. It resulted in a lovely soft yellow color that only nature can acheive. The skein has beautiful variations in the yellow color.

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.
