Item details

Yarn plant-dyed with bark from wild plum that grows on our property in rural northern Wisconsin and processed by me for dyeing using low-impact techniques. Cutting some of these thorny shrubs to strip bark for dyeing lets in more light for other plums to (hoping for fruit production). 100% Peruvian Highland Wool mill-spun yarn. 100-gram skein is approximately 137 yards. 4.5 - 5 sts = 1" on #6 - 9 needles.

I dye with plant materials I grow or gather myself using processes that are safely disposed of in my compost pile. Leaves, bark, blossoms and other parts of willow, bracken, goldenrod, walnut hulls, onion skins, mullein, tansy and other local plants find their way into my yarns. Long soaking, slow simmering, and patience produce colors that play well together, however you combine them.
