Indigo is known mostly as a dye for fabrics, hair, and skin (although there are many precautions for using it on your skin). What many people don’t know is that this plant is great for banishing bad spirits and protecting your pets and familiars (just don’t let them eat it as it is poisonous). This deep blue color is perfect for pairing with brighter colors like Broomstraw, Quicksilver, and even Peony. (Note, this yarn contains some indigo plant matter and can sometimes crock as you work with it. This will not impact your yarn nor will it bleed when you wash it. You may have some residual particles on your hands when working with it.)

Note: While the mill states that some bases are machine washable superwash yarn, this is a hand dyed product. The dye was completely exhausted and the water ran clear in the rinse process, however, some bleeding may occur with different detergents and water quality. We highly recommend hand washing using a wool safe wash such as Soak and drying flat or line drying.
When quantities are out of stock, they will be dyed to order and shipping may take 3-14 days.
Some of our photos may show more than one skein, the price listed is for only one skein.
All attempts are made to show our yarns in as close to their actual colors as possible. Colors may vary depending on monitors and lighting. Some yarns (such as those on Mohair) will come out muted and speckles will be more of a watercolor effect or have a sheen due to their fiber content.
