Organic yarn from Rwanda, made by the women of Handspun Hope. Their own flock of Merino sheep are sheared and the wool is brought to the  Handspun Hope cooperative, whose job it is to clean the wool and create beautiful yarn. This yarn is dyed using native plants such as avocado and eucalyptus.   

Please note, due to the characteristic of natural plant hand dyes, the actual color may vary between skeins. We recommend alternating skeins during knitting.
