Handspun Hand-Dyed Wool Tapestry Yarn
This wool tapestry yarn is handspun in small quantities by a worker's cooperative in Morocco, and then hand-dyed in dynamic and unusual colors. The purpose of the Anou Cooperative is to ensure that every artisan who helps make the materials is compensated fairly for their work. All profit generated above the wages paid are reinvested back into the cooperative to continue building out their supply chains, and to focus on training new and existing artisans in the community. Huge skeins of approximately 200 grams.

Merino Wool Yarn
This is a springy, super soft merino wool yarn. It is bulkier than traditional wool weaving yarn, and will weave up a quick and cushy scarf. The yarn is kettle dyed, resulting in lovely and subtle color variations throughout the skein. Each skein is 3.5 oz and has approximately 178 yards. Recommended sett of 8-10 epi. Suitable for warp and weft. Hand wash cold and lay flat to dry.
