I named each colorway in this collection after a famous "Damsel in Distress" because these yarns were rescued from the dragon of textile industry waste and repurposed into a modern thread texture blend to live happily ever after in a fiber artist studio. 

I love carding recycled textiles into art batts for spinning into yarns, it's a great way to create mindfully by reducing textile waste and incorporating it into quality art.

This lot is made from yarns of the 80s, 90s, and 2000s. If you knit, crochet, or wove from yarns at craft stores over the past 30 years, you will recognize some of the textures in this blend. 

These yarns are next to skin soft. Many of these yarns had no labels when I rescued them, so the fiber content is unknown. This blend is likely primarily high quality synthetic. Synthetic yarn is moth-resistent and machine washable. 

I washed this yarn in unicorn power scour and fiber rinse so it is squeaky clean. This is a limited run colorway and when it's gone it's gone! 

The sample batt and yarn in these photos is made with 30% rapunzel texture, 60% white wool, 10% peach wool. Carded once and spun thick and thin then plied with burgandy cord. The yarn is not included in this listing.
