Hand-Dyed Mini Yarn Skein: Rainbow Sky


Rainbow Sky is a cloudy gray streaked with a rainbow of colors from pale violet to bright orange, pink, turquoise blue, summer green, and lemon yellow.

One of these skeins (the second from left) has got many more rainbow colors in it than the others; I'll send that one to the first that orders unless you would prefer a less-bright option (just let me know in the order notes).

I've dyed it on a base of Briggs & Little Sport, a single ply, 100% wool yarn from Canada's oldest woolen mill, Briggs & Little. The hundred-and-fifty-year-old mill still washes wool with water from the Magaguadavic River and spins it into this rustic, toothy, minimally processed yarn. A bit rough, this yarn takes on color beautifully and knits into light, lofty, if somewhat scratchy pieces.

After dyeing, I rinse all yarns in cool water then soak them with Eucalan wool wash.

This is non-superwash yarn. Please hand-wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.
