This beautiful Salmon Pink hand-felted merino wool yarn/cord is hand dyed with Madder, one of the ancient dye plants which was used for thousands of years to dye fibers.
Felted yarn has a long history across Asia, where people made this type of thick yarn to decorate their horse blankets. Nowadays these felted yarns are gaining popularity in Europe among both fiber artists and laypersons alike, who like to work with unique and interesting yarns.
These wonderful felted yarns are great for *rug hooking*, rug making, weaving, home decor items, felted jewelry and for big funky handbags or whatever your creative imagination can do with them.
Yarn info: hand felted 100% merino wool hand dyed with madder approximately 10mm in diameter light fastness: excellent needle size: US 13 and up
Washing instructions: Hand wash separately, it might bleed a little. Since this is a felted yarn it can be washed in hot water.
Please note that all of my yarns are felted with pure olive soap and dyed with the highest quality natural plant dyes. I use food grade alum for mordanting.
****ABOUT THE COLORS: Please note that my yarns are hand dyed with all natural dyes, therefore they may have some lighter and/or darker shades in them. If you reorder yarns, the colors can vary slightly. Exactly matching colors can only be produced from the same dye lot. I can dye 1 LB of wool (2 whole hanks of the thick felted yarn) in one dye lot.****
****ABOUT THE PHOTOS: I make my own photographs and since I am not a professional photographer, I can't really capture the true colors of my yarns.
All of my yarns are warm and vibrant, soft and luminous, which can only be produced by natural plant dyes!****
