80% Icelandic wool from our sheep, 20% German angora from our rabbits. Our wool is processed locally at the Hampton Mill in Richmond, Vermont, and when it is dyed, it is dyed here on our farm using natural plant dyes or acid dyes in small (usually not more than 8 skein) lots.
Indigo will naturally “crock.” Crocking is part of the dying process, it is the indigo which was not able to bond to the fiber when exposed to air shaking off, and your hands may turn a light blue as you work with the wool. This is harmless, part of the process of working with natural indigo, and rinses off with water.
When you finish your piece wash it gently in cool water (unless you’re felting it.. then wash it in hot water, soap, and have fun tossing it around!). In the case of an indigo piece, rinse until the water runs clear, usually about 5 rinses does it.
4 oz skeins.
