Columbia Aran—Graphite

32.00

Graphite—a rich gray with a blue undertone.

Have you knit with Columbia yet? You're in for a treat! This is a soft, smooth, bouncy yarn that gets raves from everyone who buys it. It's a fantastic sweater yarn; it would also make wonderfully snug winter accessories—and it's soft enough to be worn next to the skin. I call it an Aran, and reach for my US size 9 needles to give lots of space to this resilient wool to fill up my stitches and drape a bit, but this yarn is just as happy knit into a denser fabric on size 7s. Your project, your choice!

  • 100% soft, cozy Columbia wool yarn
  • 225 yards/205 meters
  • Aran weight
  • three-ply, worsted-spun
  • sustainably made in North American from US-grown wool
  • hand-dyed with professional-grade acid dyes

Columbia Aran is spun from the wool of purebred Columbia sheep raised on the Imperial Stock Ranch in Oregon. Columbia sheep were developed in the United States early in the twentieth century, from Lincoln rams crossed with Rambouillet ewes. Bred specifically to thrive on the ranges of the American West, Columbias grow quickly and produce dense white fleeces. 

This plump, round yarn has been minimally-processed both to preserve natural liveliness of the wool and to reduce its ecological footprint. It has not been treated with chemicals to remove every last trace of vegetable matter, but since this yarn is worsted-spun, almost all has been removed during the preparation process.

I use only professional grade acid dyes that are light-fast and wash-fast, and I strive to run my dye studio in an environmentally-sensitive way.
