Dyed in the Wool
1. (of textiles) dyed before being formed into cloth.
2. (idiomatic) firmly established in a person’s beliefs or habits; deeply ingrained in the nature of a person or thing.
After a decade of operating exclusively as a handspinnery, our friends Rachel and Kate at Spincycle set their sights on finding a way to merge the beauty and texture of a handspun yarn with a more efficiently produced millspun yarn. Dyed In The Wool is that yarn. The fiber is handdyed before it’s spun, so that the colors meet and part ways in stunning, unique combinations; the overall effect is of a balanced, seamless whole. The color transitions are slow and dramatic, and each skein is unique. When planning larger projects requiring more than one skein, allow for nuance.
Not sure what to create with these beautiful handspun yarns? We are in love with the Harlow Hat designed by our dear friend Andrea Mowry, which takes just one skein of Dyed in the Wool and one skein of Brooklyn Tweed Loft, as pictured here.
Hand/machine wash gently in cool water, lay flat to dry. Made in the USA from sheep to skein.
