Oh, friends. This edition of This is Wool. has been so long in the making.
It is with a twinkle in our eye that we present our newest yarn video.
I N D I G O offers our smallest gauge yet – Fingering weight. It’s just the thing your fingers have been itching for as warmer winds beckon.
Approximately 2 oz / 250 yards per skein * Fingering weight *
Cormo + Rambouillet wool * Limited Edition *
Each skein is a unique dye lot. As such, we recommend alternating skeins within a project.
Photos exhibit the range of color present within each colorway; individual skeins will vary.
Options with Confetti: some skeins developed a delightful raspberry-colored flecked appearance after coming out of the dyepot. The flecks are entirely random and intermittent.

About Indigo dye: while each skein of yarn has been washed and rewashed and washed again, there may still be unfixed indigo dye present in the fibers, which will find its way onto your fingertips. This is the nature of indigo dye and this “crocking”, or smurf-like residue you may experience, is a hallmark of Indigo-dyed fiber. It is in no way indicative of inferior dyework, but rather a quirky idiosyncrasy of this enigmatic dye. It washes off simply with soap and hot water. Likely the knitting experience will be sufficient to shake loose any extra dye and you’ll likely not experience further crocking with your finished work.
As always, quantities are limited.
Next time, I look forward to sharing the real story behind the making of the yarn. It might be even better than the nonsense version from the video.
