Regular price $29.00 $23.20 Sale

Ford Fairlanes and T-birds. Wraparound windshields, rag-top convertibles, chrome, fins, and drag racing for pink slips. Sandy and Danny singing about summer nights and being the one that I want. Soda fountains, poodle skirts, and sock hops. Duck and Cover, the beginning of the Cold War, and new kitchen gadgets that were supposed to make our lives easier and ease us into the future. Beat poets, black turtlenecks, On the Road, and Howl. The 50s Have Called, and they’d like to speak with us about a few things, which are all reflected in this colorway.

HaldeCraft HandDyed yarns started life in 2007 in a small yarn store in Gainesville, Florida (Hanks Yarn and Fiber) and was then called "Perhaps Today is a Good Day to Dye". It has continued online as HaldeCraft HandDyed since 2011, and is hand-dyed and lovingly re-skeined in a small home studio by someone who loves the fiber arts just as much as you do. If you are looking for photos of yarn colorways or finished objects and are on Ravelry, you can find my yarn in their database; just look for "HaldeCraft HandDyed".

All of my yarns are hand-dyed singly or in batches of two. If you would like to order for a large project, please contact me and I will be more than happy to dye your order with every attempt to get each skein as matching as possible. However, as with all hand-dyes (not just my own) I recommend working from alternating balls on larger projects as even yarns dyed at the same time may not be perfectly matched.

This yarn was dyed in a smoke-free, but not pet-free home; however, once dyed it is kept sealed in bins which cats and dogs do not have access to.
