I hand dyed this gorgeous Romney wool with certified organic safflowers to get this vibrant mustard shade. No mordants of any kind were used. The yarn was then very gently finished and dried without weights. A little bit of sunshine for your knitting needles!

Romney is a conservation sheep breed, and buying this wool helps preserve this breed's unique characteristics for the future!

This wool is skin soft enough for many people; I could see it becoming a pair of wrist warmers or a headband or hat, or it would combine very nicely with my other plant-dyed skeins and art yarns. It is a fairly durable wool so it would also work for a little handbag or home decor item, such as a pillow cover.

If you have a larger project in mind, I can make more skeins for you in this color, but since I purchase only the finest farm fresh fleece for my handspun yarns the type of wool I have available at any given time may vary. Convo me if you'd like to discuss this!

Skein Stats

Approx. 126 yards
Spun semi-woolen
Worsted/aran weight
4 oz
Average 10.5 wpi
Comes to you tied with recycled sari silk ribbons!

Even though this is a worsted weight yarn, I recommend knitting it on #10 or 10 1/2 needles to allow the yarn to breathe and the halo to bloom.

All of my yarns are spun in a smoke-free but pet-friendly and peaceful, loving household on either my vintage Ashford Traditional or my handcrafted Wee Wheel, finished in Eucalan wool wash, and air dried without weights. Please wash in cold water with a gentle wool wash only!
