ONYX AND SAPPHIRES Hand-Dyed Ikat Yarn on Sock Perfection

Regular price $25.00

I am really excited about this colorway and technique. I dyed this yarn using a technique based on Ikat weaving, which is thought to have been the first decorative weaving technique in Japan, Indonesia, and several other ancient societies.

The yarn is predominantly black with short segments of bright blue. The second to last photo shows a knit sample of my Onyx and Amethysts colorway, which is made the same way. As you can see, it's a black background with little "stars" of color.

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.
Happy fiber artistry!
