The Wheel of the Year is a traditional cycle of seasonal celebrations observed by many cultures throughout history on into today. August 1st is one of these celebrations! Lammas, also known as Lughnasadh, falls midway between the summer solstice and the autumnal equinox. It is traditionally recognized as a celebration of the first harvest, which is the inspiration for this new colorway!
First Harvest is a five stripe colorway that draws on the early autumnal colors of the landscape as harvest time approaches – Rich Brown, Deep Green, Shadowy Gray, Harvest Red, and Grain Gold.

Recommended care: Though these are superwash wools and can be machine washed, we recommend hand washing in cool water and then air dry flat.
All of our yarns and fibers are individually hand-dyed using professional grade acid dyes. Colorway names are consistent between yarns/fibers dyed with the same dye colors, however color can (and likely will) vary between skeins and between different bases.
We make every effort to assure the colors in our photos are as accurate as possible, but please note that colors can vary from monitor to monitor.
