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! The latest news for 2017 is that the Spinsters have bought the mill!!
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.
