Alkanet is another dye product in which the roots are used to create the dye bath. This yarn has a subtle gray/purple color with some darker more purple sections. Sparkly and delightful, this is a DK yarn made of super-wash Merino (75%), Nylon (20%), and Stellina (5%) with 231 yards per skein. It has just enought but not too much sparkle, so you can shimmer without blinding those around you!
*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.
