SALE Price: close-out on this colorway! Desert Sunset is dyed in layers of deep orange and rich brown -- the mix has created a lovely soft color that reminds us of the gorgeous twilight hours on our vacation to St. George, Utah. It will work up into a super soft, lightweight project. 

The extra-fine merino wool (19.5 microns) is especially cushy and feels great on sensitive skin. It's blended with a bit of nylon for extra durability -- perfect for long-wearing projects like gloves and socks.

Dyed by us in our home state of Washington using professional commercial dyes that won't fade or bleed.

Amazing Yarn

I love this yarn so much that I made a scarf with it last winter and wanted to make it longer. I went back to the website for more and I was so happy to see it was available. It is soft, will not itch or cause me rashes and so warm. The colors are bright and beatiful. I totally recomend it.

Variegation is a plus

I bought this to mend a Woollen blanket that had been attacked by moths. Even though the weight is still a little heavy (the blanket is knitted with VERY fine yarn) the color variegation makes the repairs ‚Äú disappear‚ÄĚ. It has a beautiful hand and would make wonderful garments.

These simple hexagon stitch markers seem to elevate my knitting, and make me smile! Lovely! Also, I love my shibori skein of indigo/white merino, and am in the middle of making a hat. Beautiful order, thank you!
