A special collection from one of my favorite dyersAt Stitches West 2020, I hosted one of my favorite dyers in a portion of my booth to help showcase her work (in exactly the same way I was once helped). I'm delighted to share her work with you now in my online shop. Terra's work is at once subtle and vibrant. She makes skeins that are full of joy and meaning from her home studio in Louisiana.

I call my style of hand-dyeing watercolor speckles. Each skein has multiple layers of color that blend, shift and merge, with intentional wee tiny random dots of intense color. When dyeing, I focus on what the final fabric will look like. My goal is a fabric that may look semi-solid from a distance but, when viewed closely, shows a depth of subtle color differences.
There will be variations in color intensity and placement. I think that’s part of what makes each skein perfect – they’re not identical. If you will be using more than 1 skein in your project, alternate skeins to blend any color differences.
