Indigo- a tonal indigo blue.
The base is a White Gum Wool 8ply super Fine 17 micron ecologically farmed Australian merino. In minimum 100gm skeins. The 8ply have a 4 plied construction and have an approximate meterage of 236. This base is not superwashed and is feltable.
The yarn is an Australian Merino sourced from Tasmania. It is a single origin merino, raised organically on a farm that do not mules no dock their sheep . I love to source from suppliers who support Australian farmers where ever I possibly can. In this case I have purchased from the farm directly.
Mahogany Turtle uses high quality acid based protein dyes which like all hand dyed yarns requires respect while laundering. I recommend hand washing, alone, in your chosen wool wash, drying flat in the shade. Some minimal bleeding may occur in the first wash, this isn’t a fault. Wash the item separately to avoid any transfer. If you are wanting to combine light and dark colours please do a test swatch.
Colours will vary from batch to batch and even skein to skein in the same batch. If you are working on a large project that requires more than one skein please order the amount you need and I will send you the skeins most alike. It is also best to alternate skeins to disperse the colour differences across your project. This is particularly important with the organic colour placements of Bohème.
