Most dye pots start out with lots of color and as you dye more and more fiber the color begins to get lighter and lighter. The last bit of dyeing is termed "exhaust" as you try to exhaust all the color there is left in the pot. This skein of yarn was dyed in an indigo vat at the end of the dye process. There was certainly some indigo left in the vat but not enough to make a dark rich blue. I love these exhaust colors because the go so smoothly with the darker shades and are often more interesting.

Our yarn is wound into hanks. If you would like us to wind the yarn into balls for easier knitting or weaving, please let us know. We are happy to provide this service at no charge. Please note this may require cutting the yarn if the hank has too many yards to be wound into a single ball.
