I've been dyeing this particular dye shade for quite a few years now. I first used the shades in the autumn when the blackberries were out and I picked dyes that I thought I could see in the foliage and berries, purples, lilacs and greens. It's evolved differently every time I've done it, but here it is in two different plys. The first is a chunky yarn, (7pi) with thick and thin singles plied together. I posted (I think) a scarf knitted up in this very yarn.
Today I've just finished plying up the same dye lot as a 4ply, (14wpi) and I'm hoping that this yarn will inspire a local button maker tomorrow. I'll post some more information when I've had a deep and meaningful chat with her - and not before!
The lighting obviously different but I think that pulling those fibres into a thinner single makes the colours more muted, gentler somehow. I like them both, but definately very different animals.
The dye lot is called Kizzie and is available on Etsy if you like it. Thats all for now, just a quick one but I'll be back soon.
