A worsted-spun, plied yarn with great texture from Emma of Woolly Mammoth Fibre Company.
This is a small hand dyeing and spinning studio based on the North Coast of Northern Ireland, created by Emma Robinson in October 2017. Emma’s focus is on natural dyeing and she is passionate about provenance/ traceability in her yarn. For this reason, you will always see â€˜Fibre Originsâ€™ on her yarn labels and all yarns are non-superwash and nylon free. Emma’s yarns are all dyed with natural dye extracts, seasonal foraged material or kitchen waste.
Please consider when ordering that as this is a handdyed item, there may be variations in each batch. Colour may bleed during use / first few washes.
