The RavensWing series is a baker's dozen of colorways, a dark rainbow inspired by gems and metals and ores, colored by a common deep bass note - a midnight raven gray that strikes on the bamboo bases as charcoal and gunmetal and on the silk blends as a deep, warm gray that splits to aubergine and eggplant. The Raven - curious, creative, intuitive, mysterious, intelligent, and wise - is the harbinger of magic and carries messages from beyond space and time in her midnight wings.

Iron is a wonderful blend of the cool Raven gray and a softer, warmer pewter. On the bamboo bases, this gray is a deep graphite, with flashes of silver and smoke, ink and midnight. On the silk blends, an extravagant blend of warm and cool grays that split to glaucous green and greige and beryl and gentle purples from wisteria and lilac to violet and foxglove. This is a gray to fall in love with.

In addition to some special events, there are regular releases of brand new colors directly to Dye-to-Order. If you're a Ravelry member, visit https://www.ravelry.com/groups/dyedianadye to be in the know and join the conversation.

::How should I care for my yarn?::
Hand washing is recommended. The dyes I use are low-impact Procion MX fiber reactive dyes in a cold water process, randomly distributing color, sometimes in multiple baths to produce a glazed and layered effect. There is no regular striping or predictable pooling. In the silk blend yarns, both the silk and plant fibers take up the color. You may have a slight coloring of water in the first bath, but the color of your yarn will not change.

Colors strike and move differently on different fibers. In addition, color movement and flow will vary from base to base and lot to lot and skein to skein. If your garment requires more than a single skein, consider alternating between skeins.

And, thank you for visiting!
