100% Peruvian Highland Wool worsted-weight yarn plant-dyed with tansy foraged in rural northern Wisconsin. I gather the button-like flowers and leaves just as the blossoms start to open for a strong yellow dyebath. After dyeing the base color, a small amount of iron, copper or pH modifier shifts the color to green with tonal variations.
Each skein is unique. This listing is for the skein pictured. It's one mill-spun 100-gram skein -- approximately 220 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, goldenrod, walnut hulls, mullein, 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.

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.
