A couple of days ago I was just putting some washing into the tumble dryer when my pile of fibre blends caught my eye
So, on impulse, I grabbed a bag and decided to do some dyeing
The blend was Polwarth and Mulberry Silk, 60/40… total luxury!
I quickly weighed out the lots and put them to soak whilst I searched my dye recipes to find the colourway that matched this handspun
I searched long and hard but for some reason I haden’t written it down 😦
So I got out my dyepots and recreated it as best I could
Barry has named it Parklife…the name is perfic, thanks husband!
I have been using that handspun yarn on my Talus Cardigan…it is very nearly done, just one more sleeve to complete
That’s part of the lower piece of the body and the following photo is of the first sleeve
I love how the colours sit, I was a bit concerned about that bright orange patch on the sleeve but now I love it and just hope the other sleeve will compliment it
I have also dyed up four more colourways, that one above is a bit bright and so hard to photograph, it will certainly make you smile so I have named it Happy
The next one above is my Babbacombe colourway, it is more green in real life, less blue…another colourway that my camera took a dislike to!
I added a couple of colours to my Highland recipe and called the one above, Highland Fling 🙂
and the last one is my Southwold Colourway, one of my absolute favourites!
You can find these beauties in my shop right now
Hope these colours bring a smile to your face on these cold dark winter days….I wonder what I’ll dye up next?!?
