This listing is for Biotayarns Cormo, dyed with: Cochineal (a scale insect) that we do not grow in our summer gardens - we import this ancient dye from fair trade sources in Mexico. Cochineal makes true red, burgundy and pink colors which will not wash out however, as with all dyed wool items exposure to sunlight for long periods of time will cause the color to fade.

  • 3 ply sport weight - 310 yards per skein - approximately 4.3 ounces per skein

Biotayarns features local, healthy, fleeces raised by sheep producers and processed by local wool businesses who are dedicated to making quality yarns for fiber artists. This wool yarn is hand washable. Please remember that colors may appear different on your monitor than in real life. Every effort has been made to convey the colors in my photos as the yarn appears to me in person. 

Thank you for looking.
