Buckthorn is an amazingly fast growing invasive species in my area. I have spent my share of time fighting against its quick growth… so imagine my delight when I found that this unwanted shrub can provide such a glorious, dreamy green! I used my own technique to dye these micro batches of yarn and in this case combined buckthorn with walnut husks. This strong yet soft sock yarn is grown and spun in the USA and is perfect for socks, shawls, mittens – you name it!

Because of the variabilities of working with nature to grow flowers and then hand dyeing the yarn, each skein is a soft, squishy, work of art. Your skein will be similar, but maybe not exactly like the one in the picture. Each skein has short repeats of color and creates a lovely variegated pattern in your knitted product.

Make sure to look around the shop – there are also mini skeins and color sets available! Questions about naturally dyed yarn? See the FAQ below!
