New Hand-painted Yarns

We’ve just listed some new hand-painted yarns, dyed in-house (well, actually, just out of the house!).

These are strictly limited editions of five skeins per batch! The current series were inspired by the hot dry summer we are having, and with a bit of ‘celebrity’ culture.

Here are the yarns!

Hot Enough For Ya?

Hot Enough For Ya? emerged from a high of 38.1C. The landscape is dry, with just glimmers of green here and there, and always the threat of fire.

Conserve Water

Conserve Water was the reminder given when our well started to run dry. Inspired by clean fresh water, with a few extra colour blings to take our minds off the worries.

Kanye West? Never Heard of Her

Kanye West? Never Heard of Her was inspired by some recent controversy (there seems to have been a lot over the years) and one of my favourite Dave Grohl memes, as can be seen on t-shirts from a variety of sources. I don’t think Dave ever said such a thing, but it makes me smile.

Dee Gees

Dee Gees pays tribute to the fun of the Foo Fighter’s spin-off band honoring the Bee Gees. Great times for all. And coincidently, the colours are not unlike in a video of one of the songs included on that album, Hail Satin… You Should Be Dancing. This yarn was dyed with this playing in my head, so of course, it had to be named this! All Hail Dave Grohl – he’s My Hero!
