Biotayarns' Rural - 3 skeins: Tansy, Logwood and natural yarn - 2 ply fingering weight


$62.00

Local raised Targhee wool from South Dakota has been transformed into BiotaYarns' Rural, in 400 yard skeins. This is a soft yet hardy, fingering weight yarn featuring Targhee (& Tunis wool) perfect for scarves, shawls and baby clothing. A 2-ply mill spun yarn produced from fibers grown and raised in the great prairie states.

Rural is a soft, feather weight yarn perfect for a next to the skin garment. This yarn has been dyed using natural dyes to color the wool yarn. The blue color is derived from Logwood, a tree bark. The bright gold color comes from Tansy, a local strew herb growing on my farm. And the natural white color is undyed, the creamy color of the sheep who raised it. This is a perfect trio of yarn for a special handwork project - all natural and supporting local sheep producers and local carding/spinning mills.

Rural© is a fingering weight yarn and each skein is 400 yards and weighs approx. 113 grams.  Knitting gauge is approx. 5-6 sts/inch on a needle size 3-5 US. Handwashable

The number of skeins may be seasonally limited; please contact us about availability.
This yarn is also available for sale at our farm near Groton, SD at Dakota Carding & Wool Co.
