Handspun Hope Merino Wool Worsted Weight yarn is not only amazing yarn, it has an amazing and life-changing story. 120 women in Rwanda, the bulk of whom are surviors of genocide and living with HIV, tend a flock of Merino sheep at the base of a volcano. They care for the sheep and sheer them when it's time. Then they triple wash spin and dye the wool with dyes made from local Rwandan plants. As you empower yourself to knit, you are empowering at risk women. Thank you for choosing Handspun Hope. Please Note: We're winding down our stock on this yarn, our team might not be able to color match the skeins perfectly because the skeins you receive might be from mixed dye lots as we are discontinuing this yarn & won't receive more. Thank you so much for understanding & our team will do their very best to color match!
