Yarn update 26.01.2019

Time to make the first update of this year 🙂

The update will happen on Saturday, January 26, at 18:00 GMT.

This time it will be a big update of mainly fingering weight bases and I am happy to present a new base – Agate 366 (merino/silk/yak dawn). This yarn is a colored base (brownish gray) so not all colors are possible to dye on it. I can accept custom orders for this base or for Agate 800 only for colorways that I already dyed on this base yarn (but some modifications are possible, such as dyeing only part of already existing colorway on a full skein).

Also in this update I am presenting colorways that are dyed with a new concept in mind. The concept is to creat “colorway bridges”, where an ending color of one colorway will be a starting color of another, which will allow you to join skeins without too visible border. As they are dyed separately some variation of ending colors should be expected, but they won’t be very different. Colorways belonging to “bridges” will have a designation of ending colors in addition to a name, like “Flame (Y1-O1)”, “Maple (O1-R1)”. So when you see O1 in two different colorways you can assume that the two colorways have an identical end color (in this case orange1).

In this update colorways dyed on Siberian Pearl 400 are in about 190g skeins (and mostly only single skeins are available). Also please note that violet/purple colorway show huge shift of color depending on the lightning condition (my photos are more or less close to how they will look under direct sunlight or incandescent light, but in cloudy condition or under fluorescent lights they will look a lot closer to blue).

Skeins of Diamond and Agate 366 dyed in rainbow colors are about 400m (so for Diamond they are about 100g and for Agate 366 mostly 106-109g), and the rest of Agate 366 colorways are in 162-170g skeins (about 600m).
