---Chilean organic lambs wool---
This product is handmade and sourced locally from the Maule region of Chile. The wool is 100% lambs wool. Like all our products this wool is ethically and sustainably sourced .
This wool is organically coloured using a native Chilean technique of the Mapuche tribe. As a result due to natural variation the products you receive may vary slightly from the pictures. If you are planning a larger project we advise ordering slightly more than you expect since in future the colour match may not be exactly the same if you come to repurchase in future.
---The Natural Dyeing Process---
Special plants, leaves, flowers and roots are collected and then boiled in a traditional native chilean process to extract the natural colours. The colour is then painstakingly painted onto the wool by hand. This painting process takes considerably longer than modern chemical dyes but ensures a truly natural organically coloured product. The product is handmade in small quantities.

Each ball contains at least 100g (3.5oz) usually you will get 5-10% more. This is approximately around 110-120 metres (120-130 yards) but can differ slightly due to the nature of hand spinning.
The yarn is hand spun so there will be a little natural variation and the resulting yard will be different to factory produced yarns and fibres. In general the wool will be US grade 5 , around a 12-15 knit gauge, 8-11 crotchet gauge, recommended for us with needles between 9 and 11 or 5.5mm to 8mm.
