Having dyed yarn on and off for years, when it came to having my own range of yarn I wanted to have a definite plan of how yarn was to look. I wanted the yarn to work as a whole as well as individual pieces.
So with lots of experimenting in the months before my day job came to an end I arrived at a palette that I loved, I figured that I had to love it myself to feel enthusiastic and then hopefully others would love it too.
So once the semi solid yarns were ready in the three bases, 4 ply high twist Bluefaced Leicester Sock Yarn, 4 ply Merino/Cashmere/Nylon and a Bluefaced Leicester Double knit, I then planned to add speckled or variegated yarns that would be released over time to complement the semi solid yarns. These would be released as a yarn of the month that people could see before buying – (I like to see what I’m getting – not a huge one for surprises, hence I’m not a sock club devotee. I know, controversial)
Ocean Deep, Myrtle and Dijon, complementary yarns
So over the next few months as each Yarn of the Month is released on the 1st of the month you’ll be able to see how the yarns will work together for your chosen project, whether that be knitting, weaving or crochet.
I hope by explaining my though process, the Yarn of the Month idea becomes clearer. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as i enjoy creating them,
