Spincycle ‘Dyed In the Wool’ is a collaboration between Spincycle Yarns and an all-women owned micro mill nearby. So Rachel and Kate, the ‘Spinsters’ at Spincycle headquarters have merged the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with the efficiency of a millspun. Brilliant!
As the fibre is dyed before it is spun, the colours meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations with a long colour change. The colour transitions in ‘Dyed In The Wool’ are slow and dramatic, and each skein is unique. Think of each skein as a colour palette: the overall effect is of a balanced seamless whole but when planning projects requiring more than one, remember to allow for nuance.
