In 1785, the Society for the Promotion of Agriculture in South Carolina offered a premium for growing madder. Thomas Jefferson and Dolley Madison,
strongly urged farmers to raise this useful plant.
The lightest skein is from hickory hulls and the others are from madder.
The lovely rose skeins will be added to Saturday's shop update at 7p EST.
These skeins are on Wren House Luxe ~ a sublime yarn created with
baby alpaca, cashmere, and silk.
It's delicious..like butter.
