Spincycle Yarns – Dyed in the Wool
Rachel & Kate are the genius girls behind Spincycle’s ‘Dyed in the Wool’. They began as handspinners and dyers and then branched out into a mill nearby in Bellingham, Washington State. In 2017, they bought the mill! The result is that Rachel and Kate merged the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with the efficiency of a millspun so we can get a hands on it just a little bit sooner!
As the fibre is dyed before it is spun and plied, 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. Each skein is a colour palette and the colourways are more of a journey than a prescription: the overall effect is of a balanced seamless whole but when planning projects requiring more than one, remember to allow for nuance.
NB: colourways of this yarn vary from skein to skein, so please use the product images as a rough guide rather than an exact colour match. We will do our best to match multiple skeins of the same colour when ordered together, but we cannot guarantee an exact match to the image. ‘Allow for nuance, and enjoy the ride!’ – Spincycle’s FAQ.
