Lac Dyed Lot 3

Regular price $ 25.00 $ 0.00 Unit price per

This is the third lot of Lac and Alum botanical dyed yarn. In this particular lot the tone is a mid range between the other two dyed lots. But because the yarn bases used in this lot are not superwash the color has more of a coral pink tone to it. 

I recommend hand washing in cool water and drying flat to best care for your finished items. Because this yarn is botanically dyed and gently washed, some color bleeding may still occur for the first few washes. As a result the color may lighten over time.

Information about Lac extract: the powder used to dye these yarns is the scarlet resinous secretion of a number of species of lac insects. The use of lac dye goes back to ancient times. It was used in ancient India and neighbouring areas as wood finish, skin cosmetic and dye for wool and silk. In China it is a traditional dye for leather goods. 

As you can see by the images, color distribution and saturation varies greatly from skein to skein and from base to base. Even those these skeins are semi-solid in color, if using more than one skein I highly recommend blending skeins as you go.

Listing is for yarn only. Any other items pictured in this listing is not included in the sale of this particular colorway.

I have done my best to try capture the colors as accurately as possible. Please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor and from device to device.
