Summer Monday Dyepot Special — June 27 through June 29
This week’s special is not a new colorway, although you haven’t seen it online before. Twice I’ve dyed pots of this colorway and it sold out before I had an opportunity to take glamour shots for the online store.
This version of a deep kohl to black is called Amy Winehouse for the singer whose dark tresses teased into a bump and thick eyeliner are great packaging, but shouldn’t overshadow her strong, sultry voice and revealing songwriting. While Winehouse may sing “You Know I’m No Good” I think you’ll find the two base yarns being offered in this colorway very good indeed.
Amy Winehouse in Oak Barn Merino — Sale Price $25.50 (regular price $30)
Amy Winehouse in Wool/Tussah Silk Single Ply– Sale Price $21.25 (regular price $25)
** Just a note to announce that the yarn that was previously called Wool/Tussah Silk Single Ply Lace is now classified as Wool/Tussah Silk Single Ply Fingering. Why the change? When the wool was sent to the mill I requested a single ply fingering weight yarn, but when it arrived back on the farm I debated whether it was a fingering or leaned more towards a lace yarn. At first swatch I thought lace but now that I’ve finished a project with the yarn I definitely consider it a fingering weight yarn with a thick-thin character and plenty of spring and twist. The gram weight is right for fingering as well as the wraps-per-inch. I think you’ll enjoy it for scarves and shawls that call for a fingering weight yarn.**
