First up, I’d like to share my recent work that I’m pretty excited about. I love gradients for yarn, but the conventional way of doing them has been dyeing knitted blanks, and I just have not been thrilled with unknitting them and dealing with the kinks. I’ve figured out a way to dye them that is totally un-kinky, and as a bonus, all 4 in a lot are exactly the same…..so if you want to use several together, that will absolutely work!! I have three beautiful saturated colors for you, on a new yarn….Sparkle – it’s a 4 ply yarn….3 plies Superwash Merino, and one ply Silver Lurex….for a consistent sparkle that won’t shed. You can find Jeweled, Out of the Deep, and Periwinkle to Petunia gradient on Sparkle here.
I also have quite a collection of fiber for you! In Falkland, there’s Sea Breeze, and Periwinkle to Petunia.
On BFL I have Northern Lights, Evening Haze (in mixed BFL/Silk), and two ends of the spectrum….Elemental in Cool and Warm.
Have you been reading the latest PLY Magazine? If you are interested in trying a down-type wool, I have Cheviot in Winter Berries.
Not a Down breed, but sometimes grouped in, here’s Shetland in First Day of Fall and Autumn’s Breath.
Besides Elemental on BFL, there are a couple of other rainbows….Lollipop on 19 Micron Merino Top, and Tropical Rainbow (Variegated) on Targhee.
Tiger Eye on Merino/Tencel is pretty and shiny….
Finally, this is Wood Duck on 19 micron Merino. (Yes, I posed it in a duck shape….quack quack!)
This week was spent dyeing Club, I’m looking forward to working on some new yarn for you next week! Thank you for stopping by The Painted Tiger!
