Seacolors Yarns are a result of both my special dye process as well as the Merino cross wool breed program I developed over the past 25 years.
Hand Dyed in a solar process at the farm; where colors are laid on, in and around the skeins and gently heated in small vats I built with salvaged solar technology. The mineral dyes are fixed in seawater and vinegar instead of chemical salts and acid, which gives the yarns watery colors as soft as the wool itself. The colors are variegated as we see them in nature.
Sun dyed effects range depending on the weather and my mood; residual dye material is captured and reused in a base for the next vat, and so on. As an art form, it is my hope that the colors will speak for themselves, and as an artist you will create the palette that works for you.
Harvest the light and celebrate comfort with peace of mind. Let the subtle yarn colors come alive as you knit, and notice what can become. Soft Wool with no chemical itch or harsh boil, each dye lot is small, only 2-4 lbs, one of a kind and as whimsical as our New England weather.
Yarn is offered in 270 yards / 4 0z+ skeins.
