Hand dyed botanical indigo Buccilla Blue Label 100% cotton crochet and knitting yarn


This listing is for one 500 yard skein of vintage Buccilla brand Blue label crochet and knitting cotton that was hand-dyed with botanical indigo. There are two skeins available. Please choose the color of the skein you wish to purchase using the pull-down menu.

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 botanical indigo. This gives the yarn a beautiful blue hue.

Color A-
This skein is a deep indigo hue. The color is fairly uniform however there are some variation in the shade due to the hand-dyeing.

Color B-
This skein alternates between indigo blue and a natural (un-dyed) color. The alternations are variable in length and indigo hue.

The Crayola brand crayons are shown in the photo for a color comparison and are not included in this listing.

The yarn is soft and it would be perfect for warp, weft, knitted or crochet baskets or scrubs, hand stitching, and boro type projects.

Botanical indigo is known for "crocking" or transferring color to lighter colored items. To prevent this from happening all yarn was washed in Synthrapol detergent, with hot water, and then rinsed in vinegar-water mixture until no color bled out of the yarn. Please be aware that these treatments only reduce the amount of color transfer and if the yarn is washed with lighter colored items (or rubbed against lighter colored items) it may transfer some blue color.
