Chunky merino yarn in fiery shades of fuchsia, orange, and red.


Globe
DK weight merino in earthy shades of teal and green


Stormwatch
DK weight merino in dark burgundy, grey and black


Chocolate Strawberry
Alpaca and tencel, dyed with fuchsia and chestnut

Chunky merino in bright shades of fuchsia and green.

The first is one of the most beautiful yarns I've ever seen. It's the kind of yarn I'd buy and NEVER use, but worship forever.

Nice! I love stormwatch and chocolate strawberry.

Except that I would use it, because I would feel bad for buying it and just letting it sit in a bag.

Thanks everyone!  I am having so much fun dyeing.  I've also got some fiber dyed up as well, and can't wait to get spinning with it.  Smiley
