DYED TO ORDER
65% silk/35% linen
naturally dyed by hand in my studio. no two skeins are exactly alike. if you would like multiple skeins from the same dye pot, please let me know. please order as much as you need – due to the unpredictable nature of natural dyes, i will not be able to duplicate colours once skeins have been removed from a particular dye pot.
this is a PRE-ORDER listing. yarn will be dyed and shipped after payment is received. i will send you a message as soon as your yarn has shipped.
PLEASE CHOOSE ONE OF THE FOLLOWING DYE OPTIONS:
logwood (light/medium/dark) = purple
indigo (light/dark) = blue
madder (light/medium) = red/salmon pink
cochineal (light/dark) = fuchsia (dark)/pink (light)
osage orange = sunny yellow
carrot tops = light green-yellow
*forage = colours will be a surprise and range of golds, greens, and gentle browns
*forage is a summertime exclusive, taking advantage of the local plants i am able to harvest responsibly. if you choose this option, your yarn will be a surprise and based on what dye plants are currently blooming in my neighbourhood – it could be dandelions, tansy, goldenrod, rhubarb, who knows! they are always a gorgeous and welcome surprise.
all skeins will be pre-mordanted with alum powder. logwood is also mordanted with iron, to ensure the colourfastness of the dye.
