Non superwash, botanically dyed
Minimally processed, non superwash sport weight yarn. Spun at Canada's oldest woolen mill, then naturally dyed.
This minimally processed yarn is sourced from small flocks and farms. It is made from medium wool breeds such as Corriedale, Romney, Cheviot and Blue face. Medium wools will not be as soft as superfine Merino, because the scales are larger. Some people may not want to wear this directly against their skin. However, its makes for a very warm, light knitted fabric. I almost always wear a light tee shirt under all my sweaters, merino or not, and do not find this Meadow Rustic Sport "prickly” at all. Because of its minimally processed nature, you will occasionally find bits of vegetable matter.
Moon and Hazy are natural, undyed wool colors. Dawn, Dusk and Midnight are not naturally dyed; they are dyed by the mill. However, they are sometimes overdyed with natural dyes.
Dyes used include goldenrod, pomegranate, and cochineal as well as others.
Minor bleeding may occur on first wash. Each skein is unique, purchase multi-skein projects together & alternate rows. Monitors will vary.

You can prolong the life of all textiles and colors by washing by hand in cool water and avoiding exposure to strong, direct, prolonged light. For yarn, air drying on a flat surface will prevent stretching and sagging. A neutral wool wash is recommended. We currently use non scented Eucalan.
