65 Roses - Kiku Silk Yarn - Flowers 517

Price: $63.50

We have created "65 Roses®" one-of-a-kind hand-painted yarn. 

“65 Roses®” is a term often used by young children with cystic fibrosis to pronounce the name of their disease.

Treenway Silks donates a minimum 10% of sales to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, in honor of Andrea's angels, to help find a cure for cystic fibrosis (CF). Since developing the 65 Roses® colorways in 2017, Treenway Silks has donated $11,400 through March 31, 2022—we appreciate your support as we work toward our 2022 goal.

Hand-dyed in Colorado--color fast. We use acid dyes with heat and then rinse until water runs clear.
Wash in tepid or cool/cold water.

The silk is from the Bombyx mori silk worm, often referred to as "mulberry" silk.

Yarn Type: Kiku

Yarn Name Meaning: Chrysanthemum (Japanese)
