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…

***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.

***Please order enough for your entire project as dye lots do vary***

    This is a wonderful yarn, medium blue with some sprinkles, great stitch definition, not sure I’ll use it for socks or a shawlette. Since I am overweight, I am afraid to wear a hole in the bottom of the heel real quickly and that would be such a waste with this great yarn. Looks good, feels good, smells good, has very little plant matter (only one or two small sticky things) and no knots in the entire skein.
