Description

Made using 100% merino wool colored using natural minerals from the Earth, this beautiful blanket uses only knit and purl stitches. Because of its simplicity, the blanket size can be easily adjusted.

More about the dying process:
To make these earthy colors, mineral rocks are finely powdered and mixed with natural resins. To preserve the properties of the minerals, we use a gentle cold-water procedure to dye the fibers – a very natural process. Also, these mineral dyes are 100% natural, free from synthetic ingredients and are often used in natural cosmetics, making this a perfect yarn for our skin! This dying method produces a variegated effect, so the natural background color of the wool remains visible.

All of these yarns are color fast when hand washed.
