This week, we are thrilled to be releasing more new colours, this time tie-dyed! I was wanting to introduce colours that, when knit up, have little flecks of colour throughout the fabric. I didn't want to use speckling because I wanted something more subtle. I realized after a bit of trial and error that, if I tied the yarn in random places, I could get the effect I was looking for. Here's a little swatch I did using the Indigo colourway.
It's a very subtle effect which just adds a hint of interest. As you can see, the flecks are randomly spread over the fabric, which is perfect because I didn't want any pooling to happen. The swatch shown was knit from our Cushy DK/8ply, which is our yarn base this week. Keep an eye on Instagram for some sneak peaks of these new colours. The swatch has been knit using the Indigo colourway and the main picture above (the orange colour) is Daylily.
Also this week, I have been dyeing up minis on our Cushy DK/8ply! Minis are great for adding just a pop of colour to a project. You can use them for adding a contrasting rib or stripes, as well as for heels and toes for some warm winter socks. All of our minis are OOAK, so make sure you get enough of what you need. I'll be dyeing these regularly and adding them to the shop, so keep an eye out for more to come!
Finally, we have combined some minis and full skeins of our Cushy to make some yarn sets. These are great for hats, socks, gloves, cowls, pretty much any one skein DK/8ply project. Of course, there are lots of yarns in the shop that you could make your own yarn sets from, but sometimes it's easier to just grab and go.
All of our yarns are going live this Friday 29th April at 9am AEST (Sydney time). Make sure you've signed up to our newsletter to get a reminder as the yarns go live. We also send you a little gift for signing up.
Have a great week and hope to see you Friday! xxoo
