Hey everyone I'm Nicole and I'm Alan and we work at Darn Good Yarn and in this video we're gonna talk to you all about our herbal dyed packs. This was like a love project I remember being pregnant when I was developing this line and the cool thing about these packs which really it's like the super eco-friendly yarn where it's 100% recycled silk. So each ball is it's 50 grams and they're 150 yards each and each pack has five different colors and you can see there's a little bit of variations in each one. So we have like four or five different colorways as of now and I just want to show you like everything that's going on with them. Like some of these are dyed with rose petals, some with marigold petals we get really funky with what we're doing here.
Yeah so what would you make with something like this since you're a man who knits. You could almost do, you can do hats like this one yeah basically and that almost this weight and what's neat about this is you can do like Nordic patterns because they have a tendency to go from the same kinds of colors so if you were able to do like two stitches, two or three at the same time and you can follow a pattern which is pretty easy to do. This would be perfect yeah well you got its all right there it's kind of neat to know the scheme that you have. Yeah I like having them all in one. I have another one off camera here but then, socks this would be great for socks. Socks we also have a couple of really great shawl patterns on the website as well and we have some cool tunic. I know we had some tunics and knit and crochet and they're in this cool gradient so you get this like ombre. That's what I was going for when I put together the packs. So yeah those are our herbal dye packs. They're coming to us from southern India. They're being spun and hand dyed there as well and we're using this really cool dye sources for them like indigo and all that. So that's really exciting to me because it's really unique and I haven't seen anything like that before on recycled silk. I just think this is a wonderful material to work with. It's just it's soft but it's not scratchy it's just fun to work with it. It's a really nice cotton almost and it feels good to work with. Yeah you can do almost anything with it. Cool well that's it, I'm Nicole this is Alan and that's our video about our herbal dyed packs.
