Handspan Hope is a truly special and beautiful yarn that is spun from organic merino wool and dyed with all-natural plant fibers. Through the missionary organization, True Vineyard Ministries, this yarn is harvested, spun, and dyed by women in northern Rwanda who are working under fair trade principles that ensure just wages and safe working conditions. Dyed in nature’s palette, Handspun Hope yarns are subtle, soft, and quite extraordinary. We are also very happy to support the empowerment of textile artists around the world!

Please note, due to the characteristic of natural plant hand dyes, actual color may vary between skeins. We recommend alternating skeins during knitting.
