I was asked to do a custom order of a yarn based on the Starry Night by van Gogh. I did this on fibre before but not really on a yarn base. I wanted to incorporate the swirls and the movement in the dyeing on the yarn instead of going for a self striping yarn or a speckled yarn, so, again, I did some experimenting and came up with a multi layering or glazing effect in two stages. First I dyed the black swirls..which I actually painted on and secured that layer by heat and setting it. Then it was a matter of painting the other colours on the yarn to reflect the magical painting by van Gogh. I am taking orders for this colourway on both my standard sock base (merino/nylon/silk, 100g/410meters/AU$29) and my silver star sock base (Merino/cashmere/nylon/silver Angelina, 100g/423meters/AU$32). More on that Starry Night yarn later in this blog with all the photos of the yarns. If you would like me to dye this colourway on fibre just email or message me with your wishes.
Then I started thinking this week that Christmas and Hanukkah are practically on our doorstep ! I know! Where has this year gone! Normally I do Xmas giftvouchers (more on that option later in the blog) but I thought that to make this year extra special I am also going to offer you a fantastic Xmas Surprise Giftpack to make you or your fibre and yarn friend happy over the upcoming holidays.
