This morning I had plans to dye up one of my regular spring colorways, but I could not stop thinking about the people of Ukraine and the horror that they are experiencing right now.
I decided to stop everything and dye up a new colorway inspired by the beautiful flower that is their national symbol, the sunflower.
I will be donating 25% of all revenues from this colorway throughout the month of March to the Ukrainian Solidarity Fund, and they are actually matching donations. I feel so helpless in the face of all of this, but it's a little something we can do together.
I dyed it on Squiggle Sock, which is such a fun yarn base made with superwash merino spun in a spiral around a nylon core and with little beehives or slubs every couple feet.
Sunflower on Squiggle Sock
437 yards / 3.5 oz / 2 Plies
90% Superwash Merino / 10% Nylon
Care: Hand wash cold and air dry.
Sunflower would look great with Bouquet. If you are planning a Ukrainian flag project, take a look at the new Freedom Blue colorway I just created for that purpose.
