The Mountains Are Calling - Tweed
$28.00 USD $0.00 USD
"The mountains are calling and I must go."
" Nature is ever at work building and pulling down, creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing, allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion, chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another."
I find John Muir infinitely quotable, and twice as calming.
This is a special tonal color, made for a sweater for my dad, but I love it so much, I needed to add it to the shop. Also, I dyed way too much! It's a grey green tonal. Think of those short, how are they even here, trees on the peaks of a mountain, with a cloud passing overhead. That's the color. Perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters, and blankets.
All of my yarn is ethically sourced from Argentina and Uruguay (no mulesing allowed!) 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.
