Our Maryland Sheep & Wool 2021 colorway inspired by the Monarch Caterpillar.
This colorway is available on our Yarn baby! 100% Superwash Merino base in Fingering and Worsted weights as well as our 88%/12% nylon Sock Yarn base.
We also have a sock set available! The set comes with one 4oz Skein of Sock yarn and coordinating 1 oz. mini skein. We added green for the heels and toes because the milkweed plant is so important to the Monarch life cycle.
The photo shows worsted weight woven on a rigid heddle loom. The pattern for the sock shown is Vanilla Latte Socks by Virginia Rose-Jeanes.
Without milkweed, there is no Monarch butterfly.
Monarch butterflies rely on the existence of milkweed to lay their eggs and which the caterpillar feeds on. Each purchase of our Monarch Caterpillar yarn comes with a seed packet of milkweed and flowers beneficial to the Monarch butterfly.
