“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
Perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters, and blankets to dab away those tears.
All of my yarn is ethically sourced from Argentina and Uruguay and hand-dyed in small batches with professional acid dyes and fully exhausted before being removed. Each hank is unique and can vary, but if you order more than one skein, I will do my best to match them for you.

I dye my yarns with acid dyes and thoroughly rinse each skein before drying with Soak Wool Wash, but slight bleeding upon the first wash is a possibility. Although this yarn is machine washable, it is highly recommended that all items be hand washed in cool water with gentle detergent and laid flat to dry.
Please note, I do my best to capture the true color(s) of my yarns, however they may vary slightly due to differences between monitors/devices. I photograph all my yarn in natural light, to give you the best idea of what you're purchasing.
This yarn comes from a pet-friendly household. All yarn is stored in airtight containers away from pets, however please keep any potential allergies in mind when ordering.
