This listing is for worsted weight yarn. Please see below for yarn details.
While I do my very best to recreate each skein to look like the next, they are dyed by hand with natural materials and can vary even within a single batch. 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.)
Please note: I do my absolute best to accurately photograph color. However, due to differences in screen displays, the yarn you receive may vary slightly from what you see on your screen.

–> 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 the dye was correctly set. However, it is normal for natural dye matter to continue to rinse for the first few washes.
