"Sandstone"

  • 50/50 Rose Pearl Fiber/ Tencel
  • Fingering/Lace Weight
  • 548 Yards
  • 100g Skein


This yarn is somewhere between fingering and lace weight, as each skein is 548 yards. It is incredibly rare and unusual, and is one of my absolute favorite yarns we have ever offered. 100% vegan, this yarn is shiny like cotton or silk, but it not stiff at all and is incredibly soft. It is is perfect for people who want a beautiful yarn that is not made out of wool. This was custom spun for us as a part of a new test run for several different unique and unusual yarn blends, and we only have a limited quantity of skeins at this time. I hand dyed this yarn to resemble sand stone, and it's dyed in a variegated pattern that will naturally change colors as you work with it. 

This listing is for the yarn on this base, but it can be dyed on ANY of our bases, including our other limited edition bases or even cotton or wool. 

This yarn would be amazing in a variety of different fiber arts - knitting, crochet, weaving, etc. Due to the manufacturing process, each skein may have tiny knots in it ranging from 0 to 3 knots on average per skein. They are barely noticeable but worth mentioning in case it's a problem. I have a photo of what one looks like to give you an idea of how tiny they are. 


More about this blend: 

We were the first shop in the United States to offer Rose Pearl Fiber, and we finally have it in a yarn blend! 

This is a truly revolutionary fiber that will actually improve your skin as you use it. Pearl Infused Rose Fiber is made from all natural, recycled, and eco-friendly rose bushes (similar in feel to viscose bamboo).

It is then protein enriched with nano-pearl powder during the hardening stage, for a glossy luster and incredibly breathable material that is naturally antibacterial. The nutrients and trace elements are permanently infused into the fiber,so it will not wash out even after many repeated washes. You can touch the fiber and then rub your fingers together to feel the moisturizing effect from the pearls. This fiber also feels cool to the touch.

It is produced without any chemical additives. It is a completely all natural, environmental friendly and biodegradable product, just like wool, alpaca, and other all natural fibers. It takes fiber reactive cellulose dyes just like other plant based fibers.


Tencel is one of the only viscose products on the market (in addition to our rose fiber, pearl fiber, and mint fiber) that is made in a truly eco-friendly way, using a closed-loop system which recycles the solvents used in its production. Tencel comes from the pulp of the eucalyptus and beech trees and is grown on sustainably run farms certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The trees used produce a very high yield of cellulose per acre and give the best quality fiber with the least amount of waste. The process used to make Tencel is designed to be as efficient as possible, and uses non-toxic chemicals and solvents during processing. In addition, Tencel is a high-tenacity cellulose fiber, which gives strength and shine to yarn and fiber blends. Tencel gives you the look and feel of silk without the cost of silk. It is also considered a vegan product. During my studies as an environmental science major, I did a lot of research on tencel, and found it to be one of the most eco friendly fibers in the world.
