Sole is a 100% super-wash merino fingering-weight yarn with 400 yards, perfect for a pair of socks. This yarn is also lovely for more structured shawls, baby items and cowls. It is heaven on the feet and makes a beautiful ribbing that holds up due to extra twist in each ply!
Dyed with Dyer's Coreopsis that we grew right here in Leelanau County!
Dyer's Coreopsis- a flower that was grown and harvested in our own dyer's garden at Birch Point Farms in Leelanau County. In a light buttery version and an Amber orange.
Walnut- Dyed with a liquor made from locally harvested walnuts.
Indigo - Indigo is among the oldest dyes to be used for textile dyeing. We use a limited amount of locally grown indigo as well as commercially purchased indigo powder when creating our indigo vats.
Cochineal - a beetle that lives on the prickly pear cactus, which gives colors ranging from soft pink to red.
*Natural and Botanical dyeing is a labor of love for us; the colors are dependent on many characteristics of the soil, season, and timing. We are unable to dye at a production level with the natural dyes and instead will make available the bounty of each season as we create it.
