Hand dyed kakishibu persimmon tannin Buccilla Blue Label 100% cotton crochet and knitting yarn

$19.99

This listing is for one 500 yard skein of vintage Buccilla brand Blue label crochet and knitting cotton that was hand-dyed with kakishibu persimmon dye.

I believe that this vintage, dead stock yarn was created between the 1950's to 1960's. It was made in the USA. The label did not indicate the weight however it is about 23 WPI or 1 – Fingering Weight

I hand - dyed the yarn with kakishibu (persimmon tannin). This imparts a beautiful brown-tan color on the cotton. It has a lovely organic hue that will darken with age and use.

The yarn is a little stiffer than the undyed yarn. This is due to the kakishibu dyeing. It is NOT as stiff nor rough as a hemp yarn however it is not as fluid as it was originally. It should become softer with use. It would be perfect for warp, weft, knitted or crochet baskets or scrubs, hand stitching, and boro type projects.

The kaki-Shibu dye also acts as an insect deterrent and prevents mold. Fishing nets and stencil paper are also often dyed with kakishibu due to these reasons.

The color of kakishibu dyed items will gradually change due to exposure to ultra-violet rays, oxidation, temperature and humidity, therefore the color will vary throughout the yarn itself and over time it will change. Please note that the color of the yarn you receive may vary slightly when compared to the photos. The Crayola brand crayons are shown in the photo for a color comparison and are not included in this listing.

Please note that when multiple yards are added to the shopping cart, shipping cost may be overestimated. Please be assured that I always refund shipping cost overages greater than $1.00
