Organic Merino, Hemp

As I stated in the newsletter, I have been researching new yarn bases for my shop. One of the deciding factors for me is how the yarn base dyes. As an indie dyer, I need to be able to know how colors will look on the yarn before I paint them on the yarn. Some bases take dye better than others. These did not make the cut for me. That does NOT mean they aren't lovely and that nobody will like them. It simply means they will not be a staple in my shop. I've listed them anyway for others who may like the fiber content, the colors, the weight, etc.

Hemp behaves similarly to linen. You can clearly see how my dyes don't dye plant fibers, lol. I like this base, but I don't think it would sell well for me.
