Every year for about a decade I have been concentrating in yarn every May every single year. So, I am doing the same thing this year. Corona virus or not : you are going to get exciting new updates and new handdyed and spun yarns that are as special as I can possibly make them every week !Right on your screen! No need to go out ! You can stay safe and at the same time be enabled with some yummy yarn adventures !
This week , on the 1st of May no less, I am offering you a new yarn base I wanted to offer you that is super special: spun in Victoria, on a base of white and grey sheep spun as singles first and then plied together. What that gives you as a base is super interesting in tone and gets even more interesting when you start dyeing. I have named this new yarn base GAIA, after the Godess Mother Earth, because the Yarn base is a 100% wool, not super washed so only hand wash please, and looks organic and natural. It is a beautiful DK 8ply yarn with 200meters per 100grams. I have chosen to dye a few with very different techniques, ranging from speckle to splash to glazing to painting. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!
I did tell you that the next round of club sign ups would be ioening this week but I have run out of tuime ! so I will start that process next week! Promise !
Stay safe, stay connected and please, do not forget to have fun !
