Elder - Ritual Dyes
Elder is an American grown and custom-milled 100% non-superwash Rambouillet base from Ritual Dyes. All fiber has been grown utilizing sustainable carbon farming practices on a farm that has been raising sheep in Northern California for 150 years. They partnered with Imperial Yarn for this climate beneficial wool. Rambouillet have been raised for their larger size and ability to adapt to various climates. They produce a dense but fine wool with a superior, long staple (over 3").
This versatile 2-ply yarn ranges from DK to Light Worsted and works up beautifully in textures and simple knits. Elder maintains a soft-hand and creates a squishy, structured yet light-weight fabric.
