JANE EYRE Indie-Dyed So Silky Sock-Weight Yarn

Regular price $29.00

I'm not sure whether I'm more excited about the yarn base or the colorway. I'll start with the base. This is a scrumptiously soft sock-weight/fingering-weight yarn base made of 50% silk and 50% superwash merino. It is just so soft and shiny, and I love it. This is the first of many colorways I made using this base.

This colorway was inspired by Jane Eyre, the novel by Charlotte Bronte. I don't want to spoil the novel if you haven't read it (and you should), but Jane is an orphan who goes to work as a governess in a very mysterious house. I'll leave it there. :-)

The colors are a light red followed by an eggplant that is so dark it almost looks black (adding to the sense of mystery) followed by a soft lavender-gray followed by a tawny copper shade.

If you are looking for a truly dramatic yarn, this is for you!

The yarn is priced per skein.

YARN PAIRINGS

  • Jane Eyre would go beautifully with Aubergine as in the second to last photo.
  • The last photo shows a neat combo for a fade project. From left to right there's Poinsettia Red, Jane Eyre, Aubergine, Jackson Pollock, and Purple-Star Petunia.
PROCESS AND PACKAGING
Each skein of yarn is spun or dyed by me with loving care and contains a label with the yarn facts shown above. Your yarn is wrapped in tissue paper and shipped promptly, making a great presentation if you are giving it as a gift to your favorite fiber artist--even if that happens to be you!
 
HANK OR CAKE
Unless otherwise specified, your yarn will come as a hank, which is basically a large loop. This is the best way to store yarn because there’s no tension being placed on it. Before you begin to use it, however, you will need to wind it into a ball or cake or you will end up with a tangled mess. The best way to do this is with a swift and ball winder. However, you can use the arms of a patient friend or just put your yarn over two dining chairs back to back and wind it into a ball by hand. If you don’t have a swift and you plan to use the yarn fairly soon, I would be happy to wind your yarn into a cake for you at no extra charge. Just mention it in your note to seller when you check out.
 
MY GIFT TO YOU
As a token of my appreciation, I would be happy to include your choice of either a sprig of fresh rosemary from my organic garden or a handmade felt ball infused with essential lavender oil with your order.  Both of these smell wonderful and are natural moth deterrents. Just let me know if you would like one and which one you would prefer in the note to seller when you check out.
