A truly wonderful yarn; it’s strong, soft, beautiful to knit with (amazing stitch definition) and to top it all off, it machine washes and dries wonderfully!

Because it IS washable and so soft, it’s excellent for baby and children’s garments!

This is a wool yarn to convert folks to the beauty of easy-care, machine washable wool!

  • Color Note

    We dye our yarns in groups of 400 – 800 grams at a time, but – as is the nature of hand dyed yarn – even skeins within a given dye lot may not match exactly.

    Be sure to purchase enough for your entire project.

    It’s also a great idea to alternate skeins when knitting to reduce any variation in tone between skeins.

    You may see a tiny dot of another color within a skein as a normal result of our dye process.

    Remember that colors may vary from monitor to monitor, and the images shown on our website are representative of our colorway and may not match, strand for strand, the specific skein you receive.
