Do you like surprises or just find it hard to choose? Then let yourself be surprised with this mystery 3 skein set of naturally dyed regeneratively farmed British wool.
Weight/skein: a bit over 50g (as the hanks have been hand wound), a bit over 180m in length. If you prefer cakes, I can cake them for you upon request.
The wool comes from a regenerative farm in Sommerset. I only work with one supplier for my naturally dyed yarn. They are Regenerative, GM free, Grass fed (no grains), High Welfare certified as well as EOV (Ecological Outcome Verification) verified. In a nutshell, this means that instead of depleting the soil, they improve it!
It has been hand dyed in my kitchen in very small batches. All the dye baths are non-toxic, environmentally friendly and the water is used in the garden when the colour is exhausted. Any remaining plant material goes in our compost and back into the soil.
Hand washing and drying flat is recommended.
Natural dyes are PH sensitive, therefore they must be washed with PH neutral soap (I use Ecover Delicate of which I have tested the PH myself).
The yarn has been rinsed and washed without any residual pigment coming out, but this can happen in some cases.
Disclaimer: I believe all colours go well together and love a bit of brightness, contrast and funkiness. However I will try not to get too carried away. If there is any colour you absolutely absolutely hate, please let me know and I'll try to keep away.
