Kettle dyed, hand painted and a self striping

Here’s a kettle dyed custom I did. “Lady Alex”. This is on superwash merino DK. It is amazingly soft and so beautiful it was hard to give up!

This set was for the winner of the charity auction I did recently, to raise money for the family of a girl hit by a car (and recovering nicely). It is so super girly! On Cestari Fine

In stock yarns for you to buy and the last of the testers

Here are the very last 2 testers that went out. I really enjoyed this process. I met some really nice gals and gained some great feedback. Thanks to all who participated.

And some in stock yarns:

Gaia Bulky $20 each
This super soft base is perfect for newborns or those with sensitive skin. I would definitely call it “heavy worsted” rather than bulky.

This colorway is subtle tonal blues, beautiful!

My attempt to show the variation

Gaia Bulky

4 oz ~ 152 yds
Mountain Meadow Wool $21 each
This worsted base is soft, but stands up to toddler use. I’m proud to offer this environmentally friendly base! From their vegetable based cleansers to the small ranches they work with, the company is all about sustainability.

and a cousin to that colorway

3.5 oz ~196 yds

Organic O Wool $21
This is an awesome base! It is naturally processed, so a little more matter in it. It has great stitch definition and wears so well. This is an amazing base for a crawler as it almost never pills. It is spun in the US from cruelty free sourced organic merino fleece.
4 oz ~226 yds

Licorice Twist (1120, the light worsted)
This is the 1120, a light worsted. This base is really soft and cuddly. The thinness makes is a great choice for summer woolies.
a honking 6.9 oz $40 ppd

4 ply Merino,
This economical base is sourced from humanely treated sheep. I’d call it medium on both softness and pilling.
3.6 oz, $14 ppd

Even more awesome customs

After the holidays, then the whole family being sick for weeks, I’m back in the dye lab. Here are the latest creations!

IMG_0534

This is on Blackberry Ridge. I got to be creative here, just “something boyish” and I LOVE the result! The darker blue reminds me of the Crayola color “midnight blue”, my childhood fave!

Here is the other set, with one reskeined and one not to show the difference. These were hand painted with the colors of these pajamas as a model with long color repeats. Frankly, I think I nailed it and they look awesome!

These lovelies will be going out, along with reformulated samples of the wool wash, tomorrow!

I’ll be trying a couple of new techniques, some new yarns and a few new dyes in the next few days. Pics coming soon!
