OUR COLORS / NEWS
OUR COLORS

We currently dye two color lines – Just Abouts™ and Variegates.

Just Abouts™ are our line of near solids. Due to our dye process – we produce colors that are just about solids – there will be some tone on tone variations in the skein. Some colors show this variation more than others. It is more noticeable on fingering yarn pictures than on lace yarns – but that is an issue of mass – the variations are still there on lace yarns – you just have to look more closely as the yarns are so fine.

Variegated Yarns are just that – 2 or more different colors in a skein. Our method of processing these dyed skeins is unique and quite labor intensive. We were unsatisfied with much of what we were buying to knit with ourselves. We call them the ‘big blob’ skeins that knit up with large color pools. Can you imagine they write books on how to make these colors more palatable? We thought – why not change the product? Thus we set out to come up with a process that had more subtle color changes and would avoid the ‘big blob’ problem. We hope you agree with us that we have succeeded. Yarns knit in variegated colorways have virtually no pooling and instead show a harmonious blend of the colors.
