Limited colour way three batches available, all slightly different in shade of pink from natural avocado dyeing and intensity of speckles created by my beloved acid dyes.
Avocado Dreaming, is a little project that I under took to lift my spirts in our resent lock down. We talk a lot about self care and I truly believe that my love of hand dying in a big part of my self care. Experimenting with mixed medium is what I love most and so the idea or using traditional natural dyeing techniques and then applying my grater knowledge of Acid dyeing felt like it would give me time out from this new way of life and I so needed it!
The out come has been fun and I hope you will agree that the combination of Avocado based yarn with a hint of The Wool Kitchen magic hits the spot!
I can’t wait to dive in and enjoy every stitch!!
