Description
In order to release their seeds, the cones of Pine trees (and many other evergreen trees) must be exposed to high temperatures in order to melt their waxy seals. Fire is a natural process within the forest that is essential for future tree generations to exist. After trees and other plants die, fires turn them to ash, allowing nutrients to return to the soil instead of remaining captive in old vegetation. And although forest fires are devastating for so many of us who live in the Pacific Northwest (and all over the country), they are an essential part of life and the ecology of the forest. It's comforting to know that out of all of the destruction comes life. This colorway is a celebration of the life that comes after the devastation, and the hidden beauty within this powerful force of nature.

This listing is for one 100g skein of this wonderful yarn, which is hand dyed in our Out of the Ashes colorway. This colorway features a hand painted blend of orange, black, yellow, brown, and hints of red. The spot where the yellow meets black creates a gorgeous subtle pine tree green. There are some unusual and very special fire lines of dark brown painted into each skein, which will create a gorgeous pattern once it's knit up.

Due to the way this colorway is hand painted, even skeins within the same dye bath may vary a little bit in appearance, so expect some minor changes from what you see in the photos. All will look very similar to what you see. Different bases may change the way the yarn looks slightly. Our yarn, like our fiber, is dyed to order. Most skeins are sent within 2 business days of ordering (to allow for dry time).

**All of our variegated yarn in our shop can also be made in a gradient via special request ***

The skein shown in the photo is dyed on our Glitter Sock base.

All of the bases listed have plenty of yardage for a pair of socks , and excellent stitch definition. They all work wonderfully for socks, but you can also use them for other projects as well -- this base makes an amazing shawl. If you don't see a base that you want, let us know and we may be able to get it. We also have thicker bases and cotton bases available via custom order requests.

Care:

As with all hand dyed items, we recommend hand washing your yarn/finished item in cool water and laying it flat to dry. We rinse this yarn until the water runs crystal clear, but small amounts of excess dye may rarely come off with the first couple of washings, as is typical of hand dyed items. If this happens, rest assured that it is only excess dye and should not affect the coloring of your yarn in any way. If a large amount of bleeding ever occurs with any of our items, please contact us so we can make it right.
