This 2-ply yarn is made in my apartment studio in South Portland, Maine, from American Romney wool. The completed yarn is dyed in an indigo vat by hand, and triple rinsed in a diluted vinegar bath to a neutral pH, to ensure minimal croaking. Slight croaking with deep indigo hues is normal, so take care to rinse completed projects separately for their first soak. Every effort has been made to remove VM from the final yarn, but because the wool was sourced from an individual farm, a very slight amount may be present. Every skein has been rinsed in unscented lanolin soak before shipping.
