Artfil, Belle Sock: Orchid
Artfil Yarn specializes in natural yarns, hand dyed with care for the environment. Located in Laval, Quebec, this family dyeing operation employs sustainable, environmentally and socially responsible practices from the source of the wool to the labeling of the skein. Artfil doesn't dip or soak yarn to dye it, but instead conserves water and energy by basically airbrushing each skein, building layer upon layer of color, and steaming to set. This uses 80% less water and 60% less energy to dye the same amount of yarn than any other conventional dyeing method! Yana and Stan Petrov take great pride in creating beautiful fiber art while being mindful of our planet's health.
Belle is a classic superwash merino and nylon blend with 8 strands tightly plied into a round fingering weight yarn. It's perfect for socks, lightweight garments, baby items and accessories.
