The Ginkgo tree is known for its spectacular leaf color change to a brilliant yellow in the fall with its beautiful, unique fan-shaped leaves.
One of Mississippi's most striking specimens of the ginkgo can be found in the Vicksburg National Military Park. In the fall, the huge tree becomes a glorious blaze of yellow. Based on the massive trunk, it is very possible that this Ginkgo witnessed the fighting in Vicksburg during the Civil War.
Golden Ginkgo is a golden yellow tonal color.

Care of your hand knit garments
Please hand wash cold or lukewarm water and lay flat to dry. Even though this yarn does contain superwash merino, I do always recommend that you hand wash your knitwear. We use colorfast acid dyes for dying our yarn, and rinse until water runs clear. There may be a chance that some dye may bleed slightly in the first wash of your finished item. This does sometimes happen for speckled yarn and stubborn colors that are prone to bleed. For the first couple of washes, hand wash separately to be sure that no further bleeding.
There are no dye lots. We always try to sell from same dye lots but if not sure, we recommend blending the skeins as you work. Color saturation can differ from different dyelots.
