We have skeins of kettle dyed Dyer's Coreopsis (which was grown and harvested in our own dyer's garden at Birch Point Farms in Leelanau County) and Cochineal (a beetle that lives on the prickly pear cactus). Additionally we have some very special skeins, 2 are self-striping with Coreopsis and Cochineal and 1 skein that is a gradient of Coreopsis and Cochineal (Update - there will be more gradient skeins, but this one sold before we even got a chance to post this listing!).
This is a Bluefaced Leicester (wool) fingering-weight yarn with 438 yards, perfect for a pair of socks. This yarn is super-wash. BFL has a longer staple length than merino and lots of crimp, making this yarn less likely to pill than Merino yet still squishy and soft. This yarn takes dyes with a slightly muted/rustic look with the colors. The BFL creates a very smooth yarn that wears well and is soft next to the skin
