Natural Indigo Dyed Cotton Yarn and Unbleached Cotton Yarn

Written on April 17, 2010

More threads from my recent trip to Japan–this time, shown on top, are four skeins of natural indigo dyed cotton yarn from Shiga Prefecture.  On bottom are six skeins of undyed cotton which may or may not be hand spun.

Cotton1aEach of the skeins of indigo dyed cotton weigh 8 oz. or 227 grams.  The cotton skeins weigh 3 oz. or 85 grams each.  I’ll be offering all these for sale on my website this coming Wednesday.Cotton1bThe natural, indigo dyed yarn is very deep in color and tone, and has a very nice, purplish cast.Cotton1cSince these yarns have been coffered for, well, probably, decades, I am not sure how easy they’d be to untangle to use for weaving or some other fiber project, but in and of themselves they are really lovely to look at.
