How do you catch a bit of nature in a skein of yarn?
If you’re a patient and clever hand dyer, you turn to dyes made from plants and insects.
And you seek out wools that are sourced with care, spun by small mills, loaded up with thought and intention and time.
On a day when you probably have things to do and people to see, here’s a small escape. These are colors created by dyers whose yarns we really, really love. We’re proud to offer these yarns to you and hope you’ll give them a try, especially if you’ve not had the chance to knit with hand-dyed yarns.
From Brooke Sinnes of Napa, California, comes Sincere Sheep Cormo Sport.
This is Nutmeg Fibers Hearth, from Meg Anderson of Nashville, Tennessee.
Lana Plantae Rambouillet DK, from Marcia McDonald of Buxton, Maine.
These and many other lovelies are available in the MDK Shop. I venture to say we’re at a peak of beautiful yarns.
