Ethiopian Handspun Cotton Yarn, Indigo

Regular price $29.00

This lovely cotton yarn is laboriously handspun on a drop spindle in Ethiopia by women working for a small cooperative comprised of single mothers.  A single skein of yarn requires approximately 736 yards of handspun yarn.

The yarn is then imported into Rwanda where the ladies of Handspun Hope complete the process of dyeing it organically, using imported indigo extract, in the single-ply. Once the yarn is dry, the spinners then ply the yarn with spinning wheels into a two-ply yarn.

Due to the characteristics of this naturally hand-dyed yarn, actual color may vary between skeins. We recommend alternating skeins during knitting. #fairtradeyarn #rwandayarn #africayarn #indigo #handspunhope
