About DyeabolicalYarns

Sales 10,486
On Etsy since 2007

Just a mild mannered knitter...

"Once upon a time Rachel was a mild mannered freelance writer from St. Louis, MO. She spent the majority of her free time knitting socks, spinning fiber, drinking far too much coffee, and dyeing bright, seen-from-space colors inspired by her favorite superheroes....."

Many years after writing the beginning sentences above, I am still spending the majority of my time knitting, a little less time spinning, and dyeing has taken over my home. My dye style has evolved over the years. I still have a few bright superhero inspired colorways, but I now draw my inspiration from many different places -- art museums, popular culture, color forecasts, and "hey, let's see how these colors work together".

Visit my website or follow me on Instagram for more information about Dyeabolical. Most pertinent information is posted to my Facebook page, but I also have a Facebook group to share links to new patterns I find, interesting articles, and informal updates about Dyeabolical. You are also welcome to share your own knitting news and projects there.

Frequently asked questions
Can I special order a retired or custom colorway?

I am sorry, but I am not longer dyeing yarn.

Why do different yarns have the same name?

I will often use the same set of dyes in a variety of different ways--hand painting, kettle dyeing, immersion dyeing, semi-speckled, self striping, and "deconstructed" in to fade-style sets. I often use the same colorway name when I dye using the same colors, even if the technique is different. That makes it easy for me to keep track of and easy for customers to pick exactly the style they want.

Variegated? Watercolor Stripes? Kettle Dyed? What do all these terms mean?

Semisolid: A mostly solid color with some very light tonal variations.

Tonal: Not quite solid, but not wildly variegated. There are stronger color shifts than in a semisolid colors, but all of the hues tend to be in the same family.

Variegated, aka Short-Repeat Variegated: The color changes every few inches. The full color repeat is short, usually between 1.5 - 3 yards. Variegated yarns are sometimes called kettle dyed, space dyed, or pooling colorways. Variegated colorways may produce fraternal socks and mitts, rather than identical. Many of my Variegated colorways can also be dyed as Watercolor Stripes.

Self-Striping, aka Long-Repeat Variegated: The color changes every few feet to few yards. The full color repeat is longer, usually eve

How do I wash my finished project?

Hand wash in cool water using an unscented wool wash, like Eucalan available in the shop, for best results.
