New, organic base:
The new organic base is non-superwash which makes it a little softer than the original, and many similar yarns, and much better for the environment. It's also easier to block into shape (especially with lace). The colours are gentle, yet rich, and variegated colourways blend cohesively once knit up

Original, superwash base:
This base takes up a little more dye for intense, saturated colours and the treatment also means it has a bit of a sheen.

Rustic Fingering is hand-dyed by Neighborhood Fiber Co. in their studio located in a beautiful former fire-house in Baltimore. Each of their stunning, thoughtful colourways is inspired by and named for a neighbourhood in Baltimore or Washington DC. Subtle color variations are achieved through kettle dyeing in small batches, and each skein is unique. For consistent results, alternate between two skeins.

Care
Hand wash in a gentle wool wash, squeeze out excess water and dry flat. Pin out lace projects to block.
The superwash treatment means that the original base can be machine washed, but we recommend hand washing your delicate lace projects for best results and to preserve the colours.
