Last fall we collected and prepared dyes from Walnuts and Goldenrod from our local area. In the past few weeks, we have been using some of these extracts, as well as dye from Madder roots to dye some of our medium weight and fingering weight 100% wool yarns which are 90% Merino and 10% colored Corriedale. Shown from left to right are the Madder Root, Goldenrod, Walnut, and the natural, undyed gray yarn for comparison. These dyes are much more variable than the synthetic dyes that we use most of the time so dye lots vary quite a bit.  Slightly lighter shades are also available which make excellent background colors for a project.  If you have a preference please let us know in a comment during check out and we will try to accommodate it.  Madder Root produces a much more vivid color than Goldenrod and Walnut, so please expect that.
