The skies are heavy and dark, a few bright and contrasting flakes drift down and then a flurry, chunky and irregular, sticking to the grass and dead leaves. It's November.

This listing is for one hank of sock-weight yarn. It is 100% CVM (California Variegated Mutant), a rare breed known for its soft, elastic and multicolored fleece. I over-dyed the random-colored locks (grey to black) with ALKANET root, an ancient dye once used for correcting the color of flawed port wines. Then I carded the dyed locks with RAW SILK NOIL and spun it on my antique spinning wheel. All three bobbin's worth took a week to spin, two weeks from raw wool to finished yarn. So please keep in mind that the price reflects the hard work that goes into it.

This yarn is extremely soft and elastic so it would be perfect for socks, mittens, glittens, knucks, headbands and the like. The beautiful and subtle tweedy colors are perfect for winter.

Please note that this incredibly subtle coloration is difficult to photograph and that all monitors display differently. It is a soft, muted purplish-gray with flecks of natural silk, a creamy white.

International shipping rates are calculated based on the greatest distance. If it is cheaper for where you live, I will refund the difference.

Thanks for looking!
