Bulky 100% Peruvian Highland Wool yarn plant-dyed with cedar bark I foraged from a yard waste site. I have a special fondness for bark dyes, and harvest willow, plum and buckthorn in my own yard where the cut shrub sends up new shoots I can harvest again in a couple of years. Cedar is not something I can cut to harvest, so I have to be opportunistic when I find it. It was there on my morning walk one day, so I took what I could carry. When I went back later in the day for more, it had been bulldozed under.
Each skein of my naturally dyed yarn is unique. This listing is for the skein pictured, which has tonal variations. It's one mill-spun 100-gram skein -- approximately 137 yards. Approximately 3 - 3.75 sts = 1" on #10 - 11 needles. In nalbinding with Broden stitch, one skein will make a solid-color hat similar to the indigo sample pictured.
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 goldenrod, tansy, walnut hulls, mullein, and other local plants find their way into my yarns.
See more plant-dyed yarns at https://www.etsy.com/shop/DonnaKallnerFiberArt?section_id=14425260 . Or to simplify shopping, use the "Search Items" box at the top of the main shop page (https://www.etsy.com/shop/DonnaKallnerFiberArt) to narrow down choices to one weight of yarn (I generally sell fingering, worsted and bulky). You can also use that search box to shop skeins of a particular color or plant dye (indigo, walnut, goldenrod, willow,hops, etc.) If you're selecting skeins for a particular project and concerned colors might read differently on your screen than mine, please send me a convo. I'm happy to take a snapshot of the skeins you're considering so you can see them together.
