Description

Take a trip without leaving your home

Day Trippin’ is light pink speckled with shades of yellow, darker pink, purple and orange.

Take your own day trip without leaving your home while creating with this beautiful pink speckled yarn. The pink is extracted from the cochineal insect because of their prickly pear cactus feasts. Sourced ethically as they are harvested at the end of their life cycle. Support local ranchers and a woman-owned fiber mill to keep our small communities thriving. Create on-trend projects while using dyes that are the gentlest on our environment by keeping our water sources clean. Recommended for gorgeous shawls, hats, sweaters and just about any project your heart desires. Creating 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…

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.
