Hand-dyed merino

I’ve been very busy lately, working on lots of new goodies for the winter season.
And not just knitted stuff, oh no, I will bring new yarns to the markets!
I have started dyeing super soft 8ply merino, beautiful to knit.

These are the colours I will bring to Devonport Craft Market, next Sunday.

I have a new range of beanies as well, knitted from the gorgeous merino.
Here are some samples.

I have dyed some cotton yarn in new colours.

And I have learned a lesson – even if it’s tempting to speed up the process,
never, EVER, wash the cotton yarn in the washing machine...
