 This colorway is low immersion vat dyed, which means it will be a little different with every batch, with lots of variegation and different combinations of color as the colors mix—a wide variety of pumpkin, eggplant, golden beet, chocolate, and olive.

This listing is for 4 ounces of hand dyed combed top  The base fiber is a custom blend of 62.5% Polwarth wool, 25% Tussah Silk and 12.5% Flax.  All spun up, it has a lovely body and drape that will soften over time from the flax content.  This fiber is dyed with Greener Shades Acid Dyes, which are professional acid dyes that are mostly heavy metal free, light fast and wash fast. 

Because of the dye method, individual braids within a dyelot are fraternal and there will be variation between braids.  Different dyelots will be more like cousins.

Care: Handwash cold, lay flat to dry.  This fiber will felt.
