Elder is the first American grown and custom-milled 100% non-superwash Rambouillet base from Ritual Dyes. All fiber has been grown utilizing sustainable carbon farming practices on a farm that has been raising sheep in Northern California for 150 years. Ritual Dyes partnered with Imperial Yarn to supply them with this climate beneficial wool. Rambouillet have been raised for their larger size and ability to adapt to various climates. They produce a dense but fine wool with a superior, long staple (over 3").
This versatile 2-ply yarn ranges from DK to Light Worsted and works up beautifully in textures and simple knits. Elder maintains a soft-hand and creates a squishy, structured yet light-weight fabric.
Ritual Dyes chose to work with Green Matters to naturally dye these yarns because they produce beautiful variegation of color. All hand dyed yarn is unique and no two skeins will be exactly alike. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is always recommended with hand-dyed yarn.
