Willet is our light, summery bird, sourced from high-quality, responsibly grown Cleaner Cotton™. This special Naturally Dyed edition features five all-natural, botanically dyed shades from Green Matters Natural Dye Company. Madder, buckthorn, cutch, and logwood—we adore these soft, tonal-variegated shades and we know you'll love working with them. Note: We recommend alternating skeins to minimize potential color pooling.

The fiber's long staple length yields a deliciously soft yarn with a hint of pretty sheen. At 6 sts / inch, it works both as a sport and dk weight. In Willet's neat little stitches, we see potential for sweet baby things, cool tanks and tees, pillow covers and summer throws, shawls, and more. Try it in a pretty lace pattern or a well-defined knit/purl texture.
