I'll move from my current workspace at the end of the month, and I hope to clear the shelves so to have less stuff to move. Would you like to help me? 😊
I'll set in a new workspace sometime in March, so pre-orders may stop for a little while.

2 of my favorite things... BFL and genziana... my favorite mountain flower. I've been lucky enough as a kid to find it a few times for real in the Dolomiti... (and once I learned name of the flower I wished that that had been my name :) )

About

Colorful Hand Dyed Yarn

I started to dye one year and a half ago with scaps of yarn and food dyes, and immediately I decided that I wanted to improve my creations using professional dyes and quality yarns.
Since then I studied color theory, I've made hundreds of mini samples, and my love for colors continues to grow more and more every day.

I am the one behind the scenes, I’m the creative mind, I’m the dyer, I’m the photographer, I’m the shipper, and all this involves a lot of organization, which it's not my point of strength, but I’m working on it! :)

For now the magic happens in my home kitchen, which unfortunately is quite small, so I hope soon to move in a small separate studio. My yarns are all kettle dyed in small quantities, not more than 5-6 skein per batch.

I love highly variegated colorways, as well as subtle variegated shades, and I love stripes so much, so I create a lot of tonal and semisolid colorways which can be mixed and used together to create colorful projects, and the more the pairing is unusual, the more I like it!

I care for high quality of yarn and fibres, as well as for the environment and the animals, especially for our beloved sheeps which provide us with this wonderful material, the wool, we knitters love so much to work with.
For the yarn I only use south American Merino in order to avoid the mulesing issues, Bluefaced Leicester grown in the UK, as well as organic Merino and other high quality fibres, all specifically spun for hand knit.

I use environmental friendly, weak acid, exaust dye. This means that they need only a bit of vinegar or citric acid (which I use because it is odorless) to be fixed, as well as heat. They exaust at the end of the process, so no residual dye remains in the water used to dye. Plus they are guaranteed as totally safe to be worn next to the skin.
