Notes from the Yarnie: This yarn is produced in Italy for us by a fabulous cotton producer. We bought big hanks of it undyed, and set our in-house natural dyer to work. Using native Missouri plants, she was able to create a line of colors for us that are not only beautiful individually, but are beautiful together. To have these colors consistent, colorfast, and affordable, we sent the new colors to the producer, and they custom-produced this cotton yarn in our chosen shades with commercial dyeing techniques. The color names chosen reflect the original materials used to make these shades. We were so pleased with the moonlight luster of the cotton in these new shades that we named the yarn Lunare, or Lunar.
