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.
