The ruby is second only to the diamond in strength. That is why the ruby is a gem for protection and passion. It is the base stone for the chakra and can penetrate any darkness. All natural rubies have flaws in them, but if that is the character of a natural ruby then it isn't a flaw and merely a property. This yarn is much like it's namesake. Kettle dyed so that it is rich in color, yet with variations that will make your projects shine with beauty.

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.
