Natural Stitches is VERY proud to introduce Pittsburgh to yarns from The Natural Dye Studio.
Martha and I were introduced to this yarn when we visited TNNA in June. I just couldn’t stop touching the skeins — the colors are amazing and the hand is oh, so soft.
The Natural Dye Studio exclusively uses historical plant dyes which produce an astounding spectrum of beautiful subtle color. Their Dazzle British Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) is licensed by the British Wool Marketing Board to carry the prestigious British Wool mark. In face, each skein of the Dazzle bears a numbered certificate!
The Angel 2 ply lace is a sumptuous blend of alpaca, cashmere and silk. With a generous 800+ yards, this lovely yarn would make a beautiful shawl or stole. The Aeolian Shawl, the Adamas Shawl, and the Print o’ the Wave stole all come to mind.
The Dazzle HT is a 4 ply sock yarn, boasting a great twist and soft yet stunning colors. The tonal dyes in this yarn would be excellent for showing off heavily patterned socks, A quick search on Ravelry for “socks” and “textured” brought up over 200 possibilities.
Our final selection from The Natural Dye Studio is their Dazzle Blue Faced Leicester DK. Tonal dyes and generous skeins are just waiting to be made into soft hats, fingerless mitts, cowls and baby items.
The Natural Dye Studio yarns are highlighted on the endcaps at the end of the lace aisle and the DK aisle. I hope you find them as enchanting as I do!
