One of the hardest parts of dyeing yarn is coming up with the name. Sometimes you know the name and the color all at once and other times, we create a great color but then need to find a suitable name. With this pumpkin color, we couldn't go with just "Pumpkin Spice" or "Pumpkin Latte" because that's just not us. No, we delve into our childhood and remember a character from the Oz books by L Frank Baum called Jack Pumpkinhead.

Our yarns are hand dyed or hand painted using professional acid dyes. We wash each skein carefully after dying but slight bleeding may occur during first wash. Skeins may vary in color slightly so if using more than one skein of yarn in a project, please alternate skeins every few rows.


This soft, squishy yarn is perfect for socks, shawls, sweaters or any project where you would use a DK or Worsted weight.

Care of yarn - superwash merino will allow you to wash your items in the washing machine but please use cold water. For best results and care, hand washing is recommended.

Sweater quantities of yarn can be ordered - please message us for information.
