This yarn is insanely beautiful, and I can't wait to cast on! The communication with Ridgely was outstanding, as always. I especially appreciated that she let me know that she hadn't dyed this colourway on this base before, so the results could be unpredictable. My yarn shipped very quickly, and was the perfect Christmas present to myself :)

About

Dyed by hand, colored by magick

On the second day of April in 2011 I signed up for a one-day workshop at Portland Fiber Gallery. I was the only one who showed but they had it anyway. Picked up the basic principles, which weren't nearly as esoteric as I had been led to believe. The instructor pronounced me "unafraid of color". Went home, ordered some yarn, dye and a cheap stockpot and went to work.

Three days later, Astral Bath Yarns made its Etsy debut.

    I've been playing with color since Mom figured out that I wouldn't eat the crayons. Coloring, painting, drawing, mixing ceramic glazes, grinding raw pigments. In April 2011, I learned to dye yarn. Here's to another beginning.
