Weathered Wood in Yolen

Weathered Wood in Yolen

Regular price $29.00 Sale

Gray weathered wood. A dilapidated house too long in the salt and sun and wind. Storm clouds rolling in over the water. Days so dark you'd swear that it's night; nor'easters, hurricanes. Hours spent looking out of the living room window of the house I lived in, as a child, on the ocean; watching waves swell and seagrass blow, and not being able to tell where the ocean ended and the sky began. Driftwood. Fog. Silver and smoke. This colorway is all of those things, and more.

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 forr "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.
