Verdant DK yarn is heirloom quality yarn featuring domestic, non-superwash Merino blended with Rambouillet raised on the open range of Eastern Oregon. This wool holds the memory of endless rolling hills, a shepherds loyal call, and the verdant return to spring after four seasons of growth. We spin each skein with great care in small batches to preserve the vibrant quality of life passed from farm, to mill, to handcraft.

Yarn Weight: DK Ply: 3 Gauge: 23 Stitches = 4" on US #6 (4 mm)

I recently ordered the Verdant yarn in light grey, even with international delivery, it arrived fairly quickly. I appreciated the emails letting me know where it was, and the tracking number arrived almost as soon as the order was placed. I also highly recommend the yarn as it is a bit rustic, but is so soft and squishy. Fantastic and professional company, I highly recommend.
I've been knitting for over sixteen years, and this yarn is one of my all-time favorites. Soft and squishy, nice plies, great stitch definition. I love the fact that it does not have the chemicals associated with super-wash yarn. And the colors that Lydia creates are amazing. I will be making many sweaters with this.
Her response: Something very scrumptiously beautiful arrived from Abundant Earth Fibers today! Thank you! These are gorgeous yarns in really pretty colors!! I’m looking forward to hearing them tell me what they want to be!!!
I have used Verdant for a sweater in the past and loved working with it. When the Modern Wool podcast came out mentioning the dyed version I was all over it. I have not used it yet but the color is so rich and the yarn so soft. I know I will love it!
The Verdant yarn is wonderful to knit with. I had purchased some in the store and decided I needed a little more. I ordered it and it came in the mail 2 days later. Thank you, thank you. Knitting is keeping me sane during this time! My sweater is a long term project, but I’ll definitely be stopping at the store when things are open. Or, ordering again through the mail.
I absolutely adore this place. It's warm, it's welcoming (truly welcoming and openly diversity-focused) and everything in it inspires! I think the owners have really found a special mix of learning and play and the milled yarns and fibers abound!! LOVE and will be back.
