The 70s Have Called in Tiptree

Regular price $24.00 Sale

Harvest gold and Avocado green kitchen appliances. Dark dens with shag carpet and uncomfortable brown and green tweed couches. The "Me" decade, Watergate, Vietnam, and disco. The oil crisis, Jonestown, and Skylab. Key parties, microwave ovens, and VCRs. The first Earth Day, the 50th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, and the failure to ratify the ERA. Gloria Steinem, Bella Abzug, and Coretta Scott King. Leisure suits, bell-bottoms, platform shoes, and and finding oneself.... The 70s Have Called, and they'd like to have a word with you. Man.

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 studio; however, once dyed it is kept sealed in bags inside bins which studio dogs do not have access to.
