Hand-dyed Surprises for Tomorrow!

As you may have noticed, I have not dyed yarn in a long time. But this week, I finally did. It was so exciting to play with colors again.

I approached dyeing just seeking to please my hunger for color. I created colorways to match the fibers, and picked fibers to flatter the colorways and reflect the textural qualities of my inspirations. I will have only a couple skeins available in each colorway, and the colorways will vary by fiber. There will be soft haloed alpaca blends and cashmere blends, luxurious silk blends, and seacell blends.

I chose to paint sunsets in Tuscany inspired by one of my favorite novels, Room with a View.

For Sunset over the Arno, I picked an Alpaca blend, seeking to capture not only the colors but also the hazy texture of the Tuscan evening air after a warm summer day.

I hope you will join me tomorrow, Sunday, to enjoy the romantic sunsets of Tuscany.
