Reverse your speckles
All the glory of purple with natural cream speckles popping through. Available in very limited quantities. Due to the labor-intensive dyeing process for this colorway, when these beauties are gone, they’re gone!
Variegated colorways are so much fun to knit! While I do my very best to recreate each skein to look like the next, these are both hand-tied and dyed by hand with natural materials. You can be sure each one will be unique. It’s the best thing about knitting with nature! (Don’t forget: whenever you knit multi-skein projects, it’s best practice to alternate skeins every couple of rows.)
The more saturated color of this colorway makes it more prone to leftover excess dye matter. Fear not my fiber-lover, this does not mean the dye isn’t set properly, it simply means it might need a few extra washes before all those particles rinse out. Imagine teeny-tiny little pieces of petals, roots or insects (yep!) that take awhile to dislodge from all the amazing woolliness.
As always, every skein purchased plants a tree through One Tree Planted AND $1 is donated to Harmony Farm Animal Sanctuary in Sisters, Oregon. Donations are made on the first Monday of the month. See Our Values for the most up-to-date information.

–> Each skein is 100 grams of rustic, yet soft and yummy wool yarn grown and milled in Wyoming. Yarn is lovingly dyed with natural materials ethically sourced and/or grown in my Central Oregon garden. The yarn label features plantable wildflower seed paper so that you can enjoy even more of nature’s beauty!
–> When you purchase one of our hanks of yarn, you’re supporting local ranchers and a woman-owned fiber mill to keep our small communities thriving. You’ll be creating on-trend projects while using dyes that are the gentlest on our environment by keeping our water sources clean. Knitting with this yarn will connect you so deeply to the sheep it will almost feel like you have one of your own!
–> This yarn is farm-fresh. It arrives full of vegetation leftover from the sheep’s shenanigans out in their field. I pick out as much as I can by hand, but there will likely be some leftover bits that I’ve missed. Just consider these extra love from the sheep! Baaaa…
–> Every effort will be made to package your order in an environmentally-friendly way using recycled and/or reused materials.
***Hand wash cool***
Great care was taken to ensure dye was set properly. However, it is normal for natural dye matter to continue to rinse for the first few washes.
