This has been a horrible week of weather for much of the country, and some of it continues with the remnants of Florence continuing up to the Northeast. The Houston area got plenty enough rain, and we were concerned about the tropical depression in the Gulf to bring more rain for the weekend, but it seems to have fizzled out, as did Isaac. I am fine with that, of course. Hurricane season runs June through the end of November, and there’s no telling what may yet come.
After a focus on mostly sock yarns for a couple months, this week (and next) we have a collection of Primo Lace (80/20 Merino/Tussah Silk, 1000 yards).
Unlike the sock yarns, these were all dyed as singles, with a fairly broad palette of colors. With only a couple of exceptions, most were dyed with a combination of at least two dyes; even the ‘solids’ were created by mixing two or more dyes into a bath and then dipping the yarn, rather than my normal application of dyes onto the yarn.
I’m thinking next week’s collection will focus on the ‘wet’ colorways, like Mother of Pearl, Patina, and some others, all done in a similar wet-on-wet technique. Primo Lace lends itself to such colorways, as dyes migrate in the steamer and it’s always a surprise how the colors flow into each other without a lot of hard edges.
All of these will be ready to ship on or before Wednesday. To claim the ones you want, just send me an email with your numbered selections. If you haven’t ordered recently, or want to make your first order, be to let me know your destination state or country so I can calculate correct shipping/handling.
