Ritual Dyes



Maven is our second American grown and custom-milled 100% non-superwash Rambouillet base. All fiber has been grown utilizing sustainable carbon farming practices on a farm that has been raising sheep in Northern California for 150 years. We have partnered with Imperial Yarn to supply us with this climate beneficial wool. Rambouillet have been raised for their larger size and ability to adapt to various climates. They produce a dense but fine wool with a superior, long staple (over 3"). Learn more about our wool here.

Maven is a 2-ply fingering-weight wool with a slubby texture that reads as an all-season fabric. Its lightness makes it particularly suitable for knit tees or lighter weight sweaters. The palette makes it ideal for colorwork and also works up beautifully in cables and lace. If you want to pair this with its matching Fae color, you can do that here

We chose to work with Green Matters to naturally dye our yarn because they produce beautiful variegation of color. Each dye lot is unique. Please purchase enough yarn to complete your project. Alternating skeins is the best way to prevent possible pooling, flashing or a sudden shift of color. It's easy! Just work 1-2 row stripes from two balls of yarn (carrying the yarn up the side).

We try hard to capture the essence of each colorway, but please keep in mind that colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
