Item details

NEW at Phoenix Farm Fiber: our collection of hand dyed yarns in luxurious fibers and weights!

We dye our yarn in small batches using food-grade dyes so that your fiber is not only safe, but is undamaged by harsh chemicals -- no phosphates, copper, or harsh mordants. Once dyed, the fiber is washed several times in hot water with all natural soap and air dried. The resulting yarn is non-toxic and colorfast!

This listing is for a 100-gram (3.5 ounces) skein of extrafine merino-silk blend yarn in an easy to work sport weight. Each skein measures 350 meters (approximately 385 yards) in length. It is comprised of 50% extrafine merino wool and 50% silk -- the perfect blend for the softest garments! It was hand dyed in shades of soft green for the perfect "Guacamole." The silk creates a beautiful drape and lightness to the yarn as well as luster. The last photo shows the "Guacamole" next to an undyed white skein to really show the color!

These skeins are kettle dyed, which is a technique that allows for some slight variations of color throughout the skein. At Phoenix Farm Fiber, we LOVE the look of kettle dyed yarn in finished pieces for it's slightly heathered appearance.

Yarn comes as a standard twisted hank (as pictured).

This yarn knits and crochets with ease. Use US size 3 to 5 knitting needles to make your own custom project.

This yarn has been stored in a smoke- and pet-free environment.
