morgane - aurai fingering weight merino yak nylon sock yarn

$28.00


Hand-dyed merino, yak and nylon fingering weight yarn. I dye all yarn in small batches (usually 2 skeins at a time, but more for sweater orders). This yarn starts out as a pale grey and is then overdyed with my usual colorways. The gray transforms my normally bright, poppy colorways into subtle shades of the original color.
~437 yards, 3.5 oz/100 grams.
superwash merino yarn/yak/nylon
3 ply.


The yarn is soft but durable and will make a terrific pair of socks, shawl or even sweater. For shawls, I recommend Nusa by Cory Ellen Boberg and for sweaters I recommend Flax by Tin Can Knits. These skeins of yarn are hand-dyed and can have subtle variations even within a dye lot. For larger projects, you should always alternate your skeins to optimize color matching.

This listing is for one skein of yarn. May be depicted with other options to help you visualize multi-colored projects.

This is a repeatable color.

Environment and Packaging
The planet matters a great deal to me; that being said operating a retail yarn online business has a lot of environmental impacts.

Here's what I do.

Yarn and Fiber: Once a year I buy a fleece or processed roving from the west coast or pacific northwest. I get it processed locally and dye it and bring it back to you. This may increase over time.

Any new polwarth bought is an organic base. Any new falkland merino bought is sustainably sourced from the falkland islands. Both are available through Ashland Bay, an imported located about 60 miles from me.

I drive an electric car and take it to most in-state festivals. (FYI, the car is primarily charged at night.) I rent another car if I have to go to Seattle. All of the power at my home is purchased green power, which means that we're supporting the expansion of the green grid.

Recycled Packaging:
I reuse as many of the plastic bags that my products arrive in. That may mean an old label underneath a new one, or a slight tear in a bag. If you require or desire gift packaging, please say so and it will arrive in a nice piece of tissue paper inside a new bag.

I am changing over to eco-enclose packaging that is made from 100% post-consumer waste. I still have many bags in stock though, so I'm not sure whether you'll see them in January or June of next year.

Packaging Reuse:
One of my local Salem Etsy team members sells mirrors online. Whenever I have too much styrofoam, air packets, bubble wrap, etc., I send it to her for reuse.

Recycling:
All paper gets recycled.

Festival bags - any plastic bags given out during festivals are reused from the packaging the yarn and fiber comes in. They do not have handles. 3 out of 5 of the cities I do festival business have plastic bans, so if you are coming to visit, I recommend bringing your own!
