Dyeing Yarn

I’ve been having so much of a good time dyeing yarn. I got about 100 skeins of fingering weight yarn last month. I have been using different methods and they all achieve different results.

And the last but not the least, this is my Equatorial yarn. I got inspired by the Selvedge magazine cover from the Summer of 2013 issue.

They are all listed now in my Etsy shop. I think I still have about 80 blank skeins that I need to go through. Fun!

Patricia.

Hi there,

I just updated my Etsy shop, but I haven’t time to post it here. Warning!!!! The list is going to be long! I would like to start with Patina, because I made two versions of this colorway. One version is more saturated in color more that the other:

This is Patina with more intense colors. Blue Face Leicester. Very soft stuff…

Patina. And this is the other version, less intense than the previous one.

Aria. Sold. Blue Face Leicester

Terra. 100% Superfine, supersoft Merino

Blue Mountain. Merino. Great for felting.

Blossom. This is a blend of Merino-Tencel 50/50. I love the shine of this fiber blend

Leaf song. Sold. This is a special blend of Kid Mohair 63%, Merino 25% and Nylon 12%. Once this blend is gone, is gone!

I will be posting later tonight with more new colorways…

Shop update

I just found out a way to take snapshots in my computer! I’m crazy about it, the possibilities are endless. And now I can just go to my Etsy shop and take a snapshot of what I have! Here is a look of what I’m talking about:

Beesybee Etsy ShopThis is some of the new wool I have now in my store. Now, how did I do this? If you have a Mac, all you have to do is hold three buttons at the same time: Shift, the Apple button, and 3. There is another option where you can choose an specific section that you want to take pictures of: Shift, Apple and 4 all at the same time. You will hear a click sound. I always save everything on my desktop, so I got to my desktop and Voila! The snapshot is there! I can always crop the picture with preview. LOVE IT!
