Hand Dyed Yarn

The beautiful weather brought thoughts of flowers to mind so it was easy to choose the latest colors to dye.

The first is called Daffodil, most of our daffodils are in bloom now. I love that bouncy little yellow and gold head swaying in the spring breezes.

This is a close up of the colorway in the worsted weight skeins. You can see the full view on our website page

The second colorway is named Sweet Pea. Actually these flowers don't bloom till summer.

Sweet Peas are an old vine type flower that some dislike because of the vining. Sometimes you even see them in the country road ditches.

The blossom begins with a dark pink, almost maroon to bright pink. As the blossom ages, it fades to a light pink to white. There is a faint fragance to the flowers, that is one of the things I like about it plus they stay in bloom a long time.

Beautiful colours. My favourite would have to be Sweet Pea, I love the flowers and those colours are just lovely.
