Our new colorways are all up on the website as I type this. There are 15 of them total. Some of them are BeSpeckled and some are Multicolors. I am feeling really inspired right now so I have quite a few more coming but my lovely production dyer team request that they do not have to learn 20 new recipes all at once so… . It is a lot!
I have to say I am experiencing a fair amount of love for some of these.I am so tickled with Heckley Speckley that I can barely contain myself. It’s a little Antiquated System meets Sea Scum Run for a brew with a splash of Spicy Plum. I knew as soon as I sprinkled the dye powder on it that It was going to be one of my top 10 color loves. I will need you to keep this a secret between you and me so the other colorways don’t get jealous. The last thing I need is a hues hurt feelings causing tension in the barn.
One of the other new colorways I made this past weekend in Blue Moon’s very first Dye Camp Session. We made great colors together and had all kinds of fun. I was a little nervous since it has been awhile so was happy that the class was just the perfect size and group for getting my hands back in to the teaching dye cauldron. Intro-Speck (Thank you Linda for the great name!) I made by showing layering color and saturation techniques. I knew as soon as I was done that this had to be a colorway, they all agreed! So here they are.
Not too shabby eh? Do you see the Flamingo Feet there?? I found this picture of Flamingo feet (and legs too) and was smitten so of course it had to be a colorway. Check out my instagram feed to see them together. I even put little black dots for their black toenails. Some days my job is just way too much fun.
Okay…I’ll stop. I need to get this up so I can get out to the barn to help dye now that the sock yarn is showing up.
Orders Update: yeah so one of our shipments of lightweight that we were expecting to fill orders and dye for sock club did not show up. Yeah the mill lost the order or something they can’t really explain. Yeah slightly stressful. Anyway it is showing up now and we are dyeing out little hearts out!! We are sorry for the delay! I am planning on working all weekend to play catch up. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Also why does this kind of thing always happen in the middle of a sale??
A little secret….because it has been crazy busy with this mill thing. I have not had a chance to change our yarn and roving specials. So they are still on special and will be at least for this weekend. Enjoy!
Shhh…. don’t tell the boss.
Okay off to dye massive amounts of sock yarn!!!
Have a fabulous weekend.
