Sonoran Desert

2 items left

The Sonoran Desert is a vast and strikingly beautiful desert region that spans parts of Arizona, California, and northwestern Mexico. It is renowned for its unique landscapes and vibrant canyons. Characterized by its brilliantly colored rock formations, including the iconic red rocks of Sedona, the towering spires of Monument Valley, and the multihued layers of the Grand Canyon.

I captured the richness and warmth of the Sonoran Desert with a rich, ruddy earthtone.  To that I added bursts of burgundy, gold, and terracotta.

See below for base yarn options and details!

Pairs With:  Anything in the Southwest Collection!  I especially love this one with Mojave Desert or Hoodoo.  It also looks fantastic with Saguaro or Turquoise Sky.

For all of our hand dyed yarns we recommend that they are either washed by hand or machine washed cold, gentle cycle. Use only gentle wool wash and always lay flat to dry.

Variations between dyelots and from skein to skein are expected. It is best practice when working with hand dyed yarn to alternate skeins as you work.
