Flemingo is a lovely colorway, named for my friend Fleming. It uses cochineal to achieve a light-mid mulberry hue that is just beautiful. There is a lovely variegation to it, that gives this natural dye a lovely dimension when it’s worked up. You'll love to use this for any colorwork projects, sweaters, hats and more. Hand wash in cold water with wool wash, air dry. Colors vary slightly between dye vats due to the nature of the hand-dyeing process.

Note on this colorway: our darkest shades may sometime "crock", or rub off slightly onto your hands while working, which is a normal characteristic of the darker shades of natural dyes. For more details on this, please see our blog post.
