February 2023 - Deadly Love Bean
Abrus precatorius, or the deadly love bean. The plant is best known for its seeds, which are used as beads and in percussion instruments. Also known as jequirity bean or rosary pea, a single seed, well chewed and ingested, can be fatal to both adults and children. It also has a history of being used as a weapon against animals when used as a paste to coat spikes. If you're celebrating love this February, abrus precatorius might be a beautiful, if deadly, ornament.
100% Columbia Wool
Each skein is hand-dyed with heavy metal-free acid dye. All my yarn is synthetic material-free (no superwash & no nylon/acrylic etc.) and dyed with less toxic materials.
I have done my very best to capture the color of the yarn as accurately as possible; however, colors may vary from monitor to monitor.
All of my yarn is hand-dyed in a smoke-free, cat-friendly home.
Care: handwash gently in cool water with wool-safe soap & lay flat to dry.
