NEW!  Introducing The Dyer's Dozen.... 12 skeins of creamy white yarn ready for dying.  This is the virgin version of our DK weight Babe, a 2-strand single....Babe has the look of a single ply yarn with the added strength of 2 plies.  


All skeins will be tied loosely for dyeing; only the mordanted skeins will be twisted.


Notice in the photos how the yarn blooms from virgin to scoured to mordanted!


We offer a choice of:

Virgin : fresh from the mill, ready to be scoured and/or mordanted.  Skeined, not twisted.

Scoured : scoured in EccoScour and ready to dye with acid dyes or natural dyes that do not require a mordant, such as avocado.  Skeined, not twisted.

Mordanted : washed and mordanted in a cool water alum bath.  Skeined and twisted.
