Yarn Base

I was torn for a long time about whether I wanted to name this color after Icelandic horses, or the midnight sun. In the end, I decided the sun was more poetic, but feel free to take this color as an interpretation of both things! It is a soft golden brown variegate for fans of our Farmer’s Market colorway Honey; it pulls the richest golden oranges from that shade together with grounding deep browns for a complex, but not overwhelming warm neutral.

Iceland experiences the midnight sun from around June 15 through 30. There is a holiday this time of year called Jónsmessa that I’d love to be in town for someday :)

As for the horses side of this color inspiration — Iceland has its own breed of horses! We saw a lot of them as we drove around the country on our trip. They are often technically pony-sized (under 14 hands), but either because of their stout stature or large personalities, are always referred to as horses. The country has strict import/export laws to preserve the integrity of the breed.

Our yarns are hand-dyed with professional fiber reactive dyes on soft, eco-friendly vegan fibers. We do our best to represent yarn colors accurately in the listing photos, but please keep in mind that hand-dyed yarn inherently varies a bit from skein to skein, and different monitors may display colors differently.

Yarn is made in a smoke-free, pet-free environment. A scented soap is used at the beginning of the dye process on all bases except Anacostia and Severn, but is rinsed repeatedly after this; yarns otherwise do not contain fragrances.

To reduce our impact on the planet, our packaging is made of 100% plastic-free natural materials. Please reuse, recycle, or compost every piece!

Care Instructions

To keep finished objects looking their best, hand-wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

Each skein is hand-washed thoroughly after dyeing, but please keep in mind that minimal bleeding or crocking can still occur on first wash. A prewash is recommended for projects using multiple colors, especially saturated colors.

As with all hand-dyed yarns, especially plant fibers, slight variations should be expected between batches and even within dye lots. We strongly advise purchasing all skeins for a project at the same time to ensure they come from the same dye lot. It is also best practice to alternate skeins as you work.
