More colorways

Posted in DIY, Dyeing, Knitting, Socks tagged , at 4:05 pm by Jennie

I’ve been trying out a few different bases of my own hand dye/painted yarns. Here are a couple more…
 
 
Kazuaki Kazuaki.3

Colorway: Kazuaki (harmonious and bright)

This is a bamboo blend.
Superwash
40% Bamboo
40% Wool
20% Nylon
380yds, 100g
The dye didn’t take up as I originally thought it would be. The colors faded a bit and swirled into each other. I still like it and can’t wait to knit it up.
 
 
Layla.1 Layla
Colorway: Layla (dark beauty)
100% superwash merino
360 yds, 100g
This was fun to dye up with mixes of blues, purples, and a splash of black.
 
 
Embossed Leaves

Here’s the Suchin colorway in action. Knit up in the Embossed Leaves pattern. So far I’m digging the look. The yarn is a nice 4ply tight twist. It seems to give the stitches a bit of definition and a firm look.. Like I call it, a workhorse kinda yarn. I’ll definitely put it through the washer to see if it softens up and holds up well.
 
 
Have a great weekend everyone!!
