Product Description

Lichen comes in many tones and hues, depending on where in the world you live. Growing up in the high desert of southern Idaho, our lichen was a bright, golden green color. It grows on the basalt rocks that are prevalent leftovers from ancient volcanic activity. This colorway is reminiscent of mother nature's splash of color that brightens up the reddish brown rocks and the dry, blowing grasses in this beautiful (and sometimes under-appreciated) climate.

This limited edition yarn is made up from three plump, round plies of merino wool. It is spun a bit heavier and loftier than our regular worsted weight yarn, Cadence. It can be classified as a heavier worsted to aran weight and can be interchangeable for patterns calling for those weights. It makes a nice fabric at 4.5 stitches. This yarn base will not be offered again, so please purchase enough for your project.
