*Knotty OOAK colorways stand for our One Of A Kind (OOAK) skeins of yarn. These generally derive from experimenting, developing new colorways or the occasional mixing mishap that separates the skein or skein(s) from the rest. They are not defected in any way just one of a kind, special skeins that are never to be dyed again.
This colorway in particular was the result of accidentally doubling the formula when intending to dye a batch of Deep Woods. It is very dark in color, essentially black however it has the slightest hint of forest green in the sunlight.
Boxelder Organic is the latest version of our 4 ply non-superwash wool line. This base has 1 yard more per 100 grams, the same fiber content and 4 ply construction of our classic Boxelder base, however at 26 microns it has a sturdier more crisp hand. I wouldn't classify it as a rustic yarn as it has no prickle or itch factor, though it does have a coarser feel than our classic Boxelder base. Boxelder Organic is great for knitting sturdy, plastic free, non-superwash socks and hard wearing garments. I couldn't help but fall in love with the way this base soaks up dye. It has a subtle heatherd effect, with a matte finish. Speckles vary between crisp and blurred creating a nice watercolor effect.
