Dyed In The Wool by Spincycle Yarns

The autumn news just keep coming! This week we had a gorgeous delivery come to us all the way from Washington, USA, and we are very proud to introduce you to Spincycle Yarns. Their Dyed In The Wool is just what it sounds like; dyed in the wool

Rachel and Kate of Spincycle Yarns

Where some yarns are dyed after spinning, this one is dyed first, spun second. Dyed In The Wool starts out in the dye house, where Kate and Rachel, the powerhouses behind Spincycle, kettle dye the fibres themselves. Kettle dyeing, versus hand painting for example, means each colourway gets the most subtly enchanting colour shifts from one shade to the next. Once dry and ready for spinning, the yarn heads over to the small, mother and daughter run mill where it’s machine spun for efficiency while true to that hand-spun quality that the “Spinsters” – and us – love so much. From start to finish, it’s a labour of love and an all hands-on operation.

And we love Dyed In The Wool. It’s an amazingly springy yarn that could almost fool you to believe it had some nylon content, but it’s all 100% American wool, and a beautiful one at that. The range of colour ways covers all your needs, from the bright-bright, to the sweetly muted, and always contain some gorgeously bold and self-shifting colours that will keep you going for that “just one more row” to see what’s coming next.

Everything you need in a customised muslin project bag; the kits come complete with the yarn, pattern and a hand made wooden stitch marker. Simply perfect if you find yourself suddenly without a project, and these kits of course make ideal gifts! It’s never too soon to start collecting Christmas presents you know.

    I would love to be an ambassador for this wool by wearing the Hank hat for all to see x

  39. Hannah says:

  51. CynthiaJo says:

    Oh my goodness! What wouldn’t I want to make with it?! Such gorgeous yarn! But if I must narrow it down it would either be a hat or a cowl. Something small that has a lot of impact. And then I would wear it everywhere and not let anyone else touch it! LOL

  52. Elaine kemp says:

    I would make a pair of fingerless mittens so you could just keep looking at the colours on your hands perfect! I think they would have to be in devilish grin fantastic name and sublime colour!

  53. Helena Hurst says:

    A pair of socks for me I think for my poor tootsies are always cold.

  54. Johanne says:

    So many gorgeous colors to choose from. I love the “clementine cowl” pattern but I think I don’t have enough experience to do it. Plan B would be “The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief” with “neveruary” color yarn. Wishing you all a wonderful day. :-)

  74. Jacinta says:

    Devilish Grin is gorgeous, just love the reds. Mittens would be divine!

  75. Michele says:

    Deep bump to make a Fireweed shawl. Then I’d have to find a pinky mauve to go with it. Will the temptation never end?

  76. suej says:

    The colours plied like that look amazing, and I can’t wait to see them the next time I’m in the shop. I was going to say a cowl-but I love the comment about being able to see fingerless mitts… with long, bracelet cuffs

  77. Jules says:

    I’m yarn crawling tomorrow and will be visiting you…hurrah! It all looks rather scrummy. I’d knit some socks.

  78. becca says:

    Loooove the Spincycle yarns and can’t wait to knit with them! I would start with a hat — maybe Martina Behm’s Tensfield to show off the color transitions.

    I love the gumshoe, but the clementine JUST sneaks it for me.
