Goldenrod flowers can be found across the US blanketing fields with their bright, cheery yellow flowers. About 11 species of goldenrod can be found in upstate New York, and all of them produce gorgeous bright yellows. We harvest the flower tops when they are in full bloom, leaving plenty behind for native pollinators.
All Blue Sheep Yarn Co. yarns are dyed naturally with plant dyes using sustainable and eco-friendly methods. Yarn is hand-dyed in small batches. We are committed to keeping our yarns and dyes local & earth friendly. Dye stuffs are mindfully foraged or grown locally whenever possible.
Some fading may occur with everyday use. Color may run in the first few washes. We suggest you hand-wash your finished items separately in cold water with pH neutral soap. Roll in a towel to squeeze out excess water & lay flat to dry.
Hand dyed, small-batch yarns are naturally variegated and will have slight color variations. Light and dark spots are common. This gives our yarn a wonderfully rustic look that we love! However, if you are using multiple skeins for a project we suggest you work the new skein into your project by alternating at least 5 rows of the new skein with 5 rows of the old skein to blend any possible slight color changes between skeins.
All weight and yardage calculations are approximate & may vary slightly, however we do our best to err on the side of caution.
