Ironwood Stripes is a self striping yarn handspun from Blue Faced Leicester and Merino wool. The wools were naturally dyed with finely milled ironwood using only vinegar as a fixative creating one darker, honey color (BFL) and a lighter shade (the Merino). I also dyed some sparkling Firestar using the same ironwood. The Firestar connects the two colors and adds a pretty sparkle to the whole skein.
This skein is 2.4oz and contains 262 yards. It is a single ply and comparable to a sport weight. If you are a fan of natural dyeing and earthy colors, than you are going to love this yarn!
