Gum Blossom Yarns
Apologies! Some of these may be unavailable due to the drought.
Each mordant gives a slight colour variation of the unmordanted colour way from a single plant extract. In these beautiful tricolour yarns, either a plant extract has reacted with three mordants (alum, copper and iron) or three different plant extracts are added to different parts of a (single) mordanted ball or skein. The result is a stunning yarn with complementing naturally-derived colours!
These include a skein of avocado developed in three mordants, and a eucalyptus variegated skein, a smooth mauve grapevine colour way, a gardenia and purple people eater yarn as well as black-eyed susan, iresine and parsley tricoloured yarn balls.
With 80% extra-fine merino, this yarn is so soft. Soft and cushy, this yarn is perfect for all projects including garments, shawls and baby clothes. Yarns are in-stock and ready to ship!
