This hand-dyed artisanal yarn is no ordinary knitting yarn: the designer behind the knitting patterns Louise Robert Design meticulously created this beautiful collection.

INDIGO (or indigo tree) is a shrub of warm regions whose leaves are used to prepare an indigo tincture. The color obtained from this famous plant is a hue of purplish-blue. - Louise

SPECIAL NOTE ABOUT NATURAL DYES
Due to their artisanal nature, hand-dyed wool skeins can be different from each other even if they both come from the same dye bath. By adding to the equation the use of vegetable dyes, you must know that there can be a great variation of the colors between the different lots. Since plant dyes are highly dependent on mother nature, variations can come from the plants themselves, the season, where the plant was grown and harvested and how tannins are stored. That said, natural colors are living colors that, once knit, magically develop and blend well together.

Gorgeous yarn!

This feels like buttah in my fingers & knits up like an exquisite piece of art. Truly, one of the most lovely yarns I've ever felt slip thru my fingers. Like a good book you hate to end because with each stitch it is more beautiful.
