Hello! I realized that people might be shopping for the holiday season so I wanted to include some new colorways on my brand new luxury base! It's 50% de-haired baby Yak and 50% Mulberry Silk. It literally feels like butter in my hands. To celebrate this new wool-free base, I wanted to dye a color way with 100% natural dyes! Eat Your Veggies! was dyed using onion, cabbage, and beets. It was a little bit of trial and error, but I finally got the color way where I wanted it to be. It is also light and wash fast because I used Aluminum Sulfate to mordant the yarn. This would be just like using citric acid to bind acid dye to yarn. Natural dyes, IE plants, veggies, metal objects, wont typically adhere to protein fibers with the "normal" method, so it was pretty exciting to finally "master" a color way using this method.
I also have 2 new fiber color ways. They are not new, they are some of your favorite yarns, MoonLight Lion and Sally. I also have announced on all my fiber listings that I will no longer be braiding my fiber. When attending the Oregon Flock and Fiber Festival in Canby, OR I was talking to a particular spindle maker and his wife that I respect. After this and after personal experience I do believe that braiding compacts combed top so instead of a fiber braid you will receive a neatly wrapped fiber bundle that you can braid yourself upon receipt. I hope you enjoy the update as much as loved dying everything for you lovely people!!
