This indigo & aqua mohair yarn has been dyed in two steps. A first dye bath with yellow from olive tree leaves and after several dips in indigo. The yarn is a bit variegated with different shades of beautiful sea colors. Knit it as it is or combined with a fingering weight yarn. Also be playful with the needle size, you can use larger needles for a lace shawl or even a semi translucent sweater.

Please notice that your fingers or knitting needles might get blue when knitting with indigo. This is due to the way the indigo particles attach to the fiber and some of them get loose by friction. You can wash your hands with a bit of soap after to remove the blue, but your wooden knitting needles might get stained.

Hand dyed with colors from NATURE and love.
