Prairie Sea Fusion Yarn was developed by Custom Woolen Mills in co-operation with Salish Fusion Knitwear, a West Coast company dedicated to preserving the exceptional quality and long tradition of authentic Coast Salish knitting in the modern world. It is a heavy Soft Spun yarn made with 100% pure new Canadian wool to match the characteristics of traditional hand-spun Coast Salish yarn.
Winter makes better wool; sheep that stay outside all year produce loftier wool (more fluffy and bulky). It blooms beautifully with its first wash.
The Naturally Dyed colourway is created from fibre dyed in the wool with plant and bug extacts such as madder root, cochineal, indigo, logwood, and osage orange - a truly earth-friendly textile option, these colourways have a warm, "living", characteristic all their own. It is mordanted with alum. All Prairie yarns are washed in natural soap only, not chemicals.
Please note: due to the small batch nature of this yarn, colour pooling can occur (though we work very hard to avoid it). When knitting large swatches of a single colour, we recommend introducing a new skein of yarn slowly by alternating skeins row for row.
