We were surprised how hard it is to find nice, soft, and affordable undyed yarns to pair with other colors. These are the same yarns used by indie dyers, just in their natural state. We wash it with some citric acid to soften it before packaging it up. Most are ecru, some like the yak yarns are grey due to the natural color of the animal fiber. Most are superwash, we are working on a expanding our selection of undyed non-superwash yarns, find those here. Formerly known as Ecru, Brute?.

Perfect for pairing with another yarn or for your dyeing experiments. If you are using these yarns for natural dyeing and don't want your yarn to be washed with citric acid, email us at hello@blacksquirrelberkeley.com.

All yarns labeled Superwash are machine washable on the gentle cycle with cool water and lay flat to dry or tumble dry on low. Hand washing is recommended to extend the life and beauty of your finished pieces. If you have combined colors that may bleed into each other, be sure to use a cool water for washing and rinsing and add a Shout Color Catcher sheet if needed, they work great!
