About Our Bases

We are proud dyers of Shaniko wool and wool blend yarns and fibers available through our stockists and collaborators.  As a helpful reference, here is information on the bases readily available.  Additional blends including Merino/Silk and Merino/Silk/Cashmere, and sparkly yarns in several bases available by special order through yarn shops. When you buy this yarn you are supporting the American wool industry and our region's milling industry!

All of the wool in our yarn and fiber comes from Shaniko Wool Co., and is certified under the Responsible Wool Standard.  That means the people, land, and animals associated with production of this yarn and fiber are all treated fairly and ethically.

A Note about Hand Dyed Yarn

Hand dyeing yarn and fiber is a mix of chemistry and artistry. Something as seemingly simple as a change made to the water supply by the local water authority can have a pretty surprising effect on color. Please note that while we make every effort to be consistent in our dyeing, we do not guarantee matching from dye lot to dye lot. Additionally, we make every effort to represent our colorways accurately through product photos - but please be aware that the technology used to view our photos may not translate the color accurately. If we can be of assistance, please email us at hello@wooltribeyarn.co. Thank you.

Care Instructions

We take great care in hand dyeing the yarn and fiber we offer. With handmade projects and wearables, unless otherwise specified, we recommend they be hand washed and dried flat.
