Gum Blossom Yarns

Black Turtle Bean 1

Black turtle beans are a variety of common beans from the Americas introduced and grown around the world; popular in vegetarian and Mexican cuisines. With wool, the beans impart a beautiful tonal teal colour range.
A gradient kit of the different colour ways coming from these beans is shown and will be featured in an upcoming shawl design (shush!). This is the first blue/green of the Black Bean colours - 1. It has the colours of a mountain volcanic pool!

With 80% superfine merino and 20% nylon, this yarn is a smooth, soft and durable yarn. It is the perfect choice for socks, baby clothing and blankets. The softness and drape of this yarn makes it ideal for shawls, cardigans, tops, tees and any garment worn next to the skin.
