"A Day at the Garage" is a colour way that we have been working on for a while. Imagine a day at the garage with the mechanic wearing his grey or green coveralls, wiping grease from his hands on a rag that you know hasn't been washed for a while and all that is missing in this colour way, is the smell of tires, gasoline and oil. We are excited to add repeatable colour ways to our ETSY shop and hope that you are to.
This listing is for 1 skein that is a REPEATABLE colour way, however as with all hand dyed yarns has variations skein to skein. Please ensure that you order sufficient yarn for your project and we will ensure that it comes from a single dye lot for you. Processing time can be up to 2 weeks if we do not have sufficient skeins in inventory for your order. Postage is based on 5 skeins or less in this listing. More than 5 skeins will be determined at time of shipping and any postage paid above the required amount will be refunded to the buyer. Please message us if you would like to know postage prior to purchase.
MCN is absolute luxury. All the softness of high quality merino plus a little more with cashmere. Still a sturdy sock yarn but these feet are pampered. Versatile enough for other fingering weight projects, you will be in love with this yarn and spoiled for others.
Every skein of yarn has a story and at RavensWood Fibre Co, I get to be a part of that story.
Yarn and the process of working it by hand is a sensual experience. We are drawn first by colour, we are held by touch, we hold to dream of the who, the what, the where and sometimes why we need the yarn. A skein of hand dyed yarn is more than a string for a project. The colours and patterns draw us in. Every stitch anticipates the next colour change and how that will play against the fabric we create. We can find the rhythm of the needles/hooks meditative. When we work with hand dyed yarns we know that although you may see similarity in another skein, this skein is special. It is unique in the depth and breadth of pattern. It was built with kind hands that loved it from its birth to your hand.
What’s in a name? It’s the final gift. A part of my soul that I share with you. A reflection, a story, and often a giggle as I send this piece of me out to the world for you to continue its story.
I make every effort to ensure that the colours are photographed as accurately as possible using natural light, but every computer screen can be a little different. To keep your yarns bight and happy, I suggest that you hand wash your finished garments with cold water, rinse well and lay flat to dry on a clean towel.
