100% Organic Merino Wool Yarn Shallot


$ 29.00




Description

The wool from our own flock of Merino sheep is triple-washed clean before the ladies of Handspun Hope begin creating yarn using the age-old craft of spinning with only wheels and handtools. This yarn is hand-dyed in a bath of shallot skins. Thproject gives over 120 women, most of them widows and orphaned survivors of the 1994 Genocide, dignified employment. Handspun Hope is a certified member of the Fair Trade Federation, which guarantees just wages and working conditions for the artisans.

Please note, due to the characteristic of natural plant hand dyes, actual color may vary between skeins. We recommend alternating skeins during knitting. #fairtradeyarn #rwandayarn #africayarn #shallot #handspunhope #onionskins
