What are Maki?

When I started Play at Life Fiber Arts in 2009, I named my long color repeat yarns Maki because they looked so much like sushi rolls when wound into their center-pull ball.

Right now, I am only able to dye Maki on lace and fingering weight bases. Gradient and striping sets are available on sport, DK, and aran weights though!

Base info:
Wishingstar: my silk blend base line available in Lace
Scrumpet: my sw merino/cashmere/nylon base line available in Sock and Light Fingering
Telyn: my tencel blend base line currently available in Fingering
Jest: my high twist base line available in Sock, Sport, and Aran
Boundless: my 4ply base line available in Sock and DK

"What we play is life" Louis Armstrong

I started Play at Life Fiber Arts in January of 2009 dyeing exclusively reclaimed yarn with food-safe dyes in my home kitchen. The response was amazing and far better than I had ever hoped. I was able to move to dyeing first quality yarns with professional acid dyes and soon after I began dyeing fibers.

Thanks for taking a look at the shop!
I love color! I specialize in dyeing yarn and fiber in long color repeats, but I do enjoy working with hand paints and semi solids as well.

Additional policies and FAQs
All yarn and fiber comes with a tag listing its Specifics.

Kinky yarn? Gradient yarns are dyed in blank form and are unravelled while still damp and will have a very slight kink. Since most sock projects are worked at a tight gauge, this should not affect your finished object.

Knots happen! Milled yarn breaks coming off the mill equipment and gets joined with a knot before it even gets to me sometimes. Yarn that has more than one knot will be discounted.

Dye lots can vary greatly from lot to lot!
