- Calculated at Checkout
Tellus - Dyed with indigo, currently 3 shades available if a gradient effect is desired use light, med, dark. Please be aware that indigo has a potential to "crock" which means to rub off on fingers and wooden needles with friction, the darker the shade of indigo them more likely this will happen. This has been thoroughly washed many times to minimize this unavoidable characteristic of indigo which is a result of the way the dye bonds to fabric, over time this will diminish and you may notice some fading, just like an old pair of favorite jeans, also dyed with indigo.
