This luxurious yarn was dyed with Dyer's Coreopsis which was grown and harvested in our own dyer's garden at Birch Point Farms in Leelanau County. This is a fingering weight blend of Alpaca/Linen/Silk (50%/25%/25%) in a generous 438 yards. The colors on this yarn come out a bit muted with a lovely heathered effect. Finished projects from this base are light, have a nice drape, and are warm without being too warm, giving the perfect temperature balance.
*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.
