This dye kit is a perfect treat for those who'd like to get their hands into natural dying. Osage orange produces lovely shades of brownish-orange to golden mustard. The yarn is mill spun from a lovely blend of longwools from our Romney and Coopworth sheep. This is a great yarn for strong outer wear such as hats, mittens, and the forever sweater.
:: kits include one skein of 2-ply sport weight yarn (+/- 3.75 ounces- approx. 170 yards) + 3.8oz of Osage orange sawdust + instructions for dying.
:: from locally harvested Osage orange milled on our farm in Ohio
:: yarn from our sheep that are raised using organic methods
* the second photo shows an example of this yarn dyed with the Osage orange sawdust.
** please note that the yarn is classified by the woolen mill as a sport weight, but is gauged a little on the heavy side
