I just ran across a blog that linked to Mystical Creation Yarns. They have some beautiful stuff!
those are beautiful.what do they mean by handpainted?
Oh goodness, their colorways are breathtaking.
Like I needed any more yarn to drool over.... (you too, Kemp, lol!)
i do! :drooling: i don't have anything in my stash that even compares to any of that!!! my stash is very weak.
HAHA~ I know!!!!!!!! Just bookmarked it in case they are in business 3 years from now...about how long it will take me to knit all the yarn I have. :roflhard:
koolbreeze: handpainted =hand dyed, it can be quite artistic
if its hand painted how do they get varigated (right word?) like that?
yes. Like this:
Okay, I could not resist. I got some. To knit a Christmas present. That's admirable, right? :angelgrin:
oh you LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY LUCKY woman!!!! Please make sure to post with how well you like it
I think anything for Christmas has to be ok, right? Spirt of giving and all.
so do u just dip a little part in the dye, let it dry then dip another part?
No, it's really pretty cool...you put the yarn in a pot and then pour in several colors of dye. Or if you do it in the microwave you can put the colors more specifically on a certain part. If you do a search for handpainted on here, you'll find some more detail. The member midnightskyfibers does a lot of it.
really? wow that would be cool to try. i havesome ugly beige wool i want to dye... i'll have to get the details. thanks
