“Faith” wool sport
Faith Ringgold is a beloved African-American fiber and quilt artist, and a pioneer in both the civil rights and women's movements. How could I not have a yarn named for her? It's 100% Maine-spun wool in a really versatile and popular sport weight. It's a great felter, too!

Natural dye materials used may include (depending on the color) lac, madder, cochineal, logwood purple, weld, osage orange, quercitron, fustic, indigo, Saxon blue extract (indigo cooked with sulfuric acid), logwood grey, and chestnut. I mordant with alum and cream of tartar, and may also use chalk, ammonia, vinegar, or extremely small amounts of tin (only occasionally in red dyes).
Quantities and photos may not reflect what's actually available at the moment; please contact me for specifics.
Every effort is made to represent colors as accurately as possible.

Gentle handwash in cool water and wool wash, then dry flat to preserve the beauty of the natural dye material. Please refer to the "Yarn Care & Knotty Problems" page for additional care information.
