***This page features yarn spun from the 2016 fleeces. The 2017 fleeces are back from the mill and I am dyeing the Arboreal main color yarn to order. You are welcome to order from the yarn below, but main color quantities may not be available in many colors. Choose your contrast color from the yarn below and head on over to the Arboreal page to place an order for the main color. ***
This 3 ply worsted spun DK weight yarn was created from the flock of Two Sisters Farm in Waldoboro, Maine. Bluefaced Leicester produce a vibrant, medium staple length fleece, with good crimp. Soft but still hard wearing, it is the perfect yarn for sweaters, hats, and mittens.
Like all my dyed yarn, I used only plant and insect based dyes, and a few assists to achieve bright, light fast colors. Many of my colors include natural indigo. If you are not familiar with the vagaries of working with natural indigo dyed yarn, please read "A Note About Indigo".
*** All profits from sale of pink yarn will be donated to the ACLU - Pussy Hat pattern for DK weight BFL is available as free download here***
