This is the perfect yarn for your warm weather knits: from spring cardigans to summer tanks and more! 

Both the cotton and wool that make up this yarn have been grown and milled in the USA. The yarn is minimally processed and botanically hand dyed using plants and plant extracts.

"Our wool is washed using a scouring process that keeps natural lanolin in the yarn and maintains the natural bounce and texture of the wool.  We prefer our scouring process to the more contemporary carbonizing process because a carbonizing acid bath, done overseas, would burn out the vegetable matter, leaving the wool very clean but removing the lanolin and leaving the wool with less bounce and changing the original texture.  Sometimes specks of easily removable hay or straw remain in our yarn; owner Francis Chester likes to say that if you put his yarn to your ears, you can almost hear the sounds of life within it." - Cestari Sheep & Wool Company

Hand wash in lukewarm water. Lay flat to dry. 

Our yarns are lovingly hand dyed in our family kitchen in Astoria, New York! Due to the hand dyeing process, there may be some remaining excess dye in the yarn. Please be mindful of this when using our yarns in multi-colored projects and/or when washing with other hand knits. Colors may vary from skein to skein, and we recommend alternating skeins on larger projects.

Please note that every monitor is calibrated differently. Colors may vary from monitor to monitor, and the actual color of your yarn may be slightly different in real life.
